Cracking Open the Dell Adamo

Removing the display assembly screws

The hinge on the Adamo feels solid, but time will tell how well the hinge design holds up. Hinge problems have plagued a number of MacBook Air owners.
Getting the display assembly off requires the removal of 14 screws:
* Eight Phillips on top, four on each hinge (shown here).
* Four Phillips on the bottom, two on each side.
* Two small Phillips on top, one on each side.
