    Hey folks. I've heard various tales on this: is the LCD panel bonded/glued into the aluminum shell for the late 2010 13"?

    I've read about the teardown of the first gen MBA, apparently the display frame was glued with strong glue instead of screwed/bolted on, so when the display frame is removed it has to glued back which I think you can't just use any kinds of glue.

    I think it's the same with the later generations. So if there's anything happen to the display or hinge, probably the whole display assembly need to be replaces.
