    It helps if you remove the screws holding the case together, numbskull.

    As I always say, kick it hard. It won’t make it better but by golly, you’ll feel way much better.

    Some units have screws hidden under feet, product labels, snapped on covers, or require long narrow specialty drivers. Screws require more complex dies for the case. If the engineering concept was “no field repair” they snap and glue it shut. Factory repair depots have the new case and glue.

    Yep, that’s how you get into an iMac G5.

    The crowbar tells me of the finesse used by the technician.

    Microsoft wouldn’t know what a crowbar is unless it was a found object in a video game. That crowbar has a Foxconn restricted distribution specialty tool sticker on it.

    Could be an Apple. They have been known to combine everything together once or twice.

    Reminds me of the Mac mini’s and half of Apple’s products. You need a putty knife or “spluge” to dislodge the plastic clips holding the case together. You need industrial suction cups to remove the glass on the iMac’s as it’s held in with magnets.
