    Exactly. Being able to get to the SSD is pretty important though if there's anything critical on there, unless everything is backed up often, or synced with the cloud. I'm not sure about the 3rd gen, but the 1st and 2nd gen X1 tablet had service training videos that show how to disassemble them. No glue gun needed, it's all screws and clips. :thumbsup:

    That's exactly the kind of manufacturer documentation and design I wish was standard with products.

    Does anyone find it disheartening that the Right to Repair bills that were proposed in 18 States are still stalled in 2018?

    A lot of US citizens are not aware, but you guys already have repair rights granted by the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act:

    (Motherboard)

    "However, warranty conditions that forbid consumers from opening or repairing their devices are illegal under a provision of the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act that forbids "tying," meaning the conditions of the warranty "tie" the consumer to using a specific service or specific types of parts."

    Yes, all those "warranty void" stickers, and Apple's service refusals, and restrictive EULAs, are all corporate BS.

    The fact that you guys have to fight tooth-and-nail to introduce another law just to confirm your existing consumer rights...doesn't that make you hoping mad right now?! :mad:

    Take a look at the legal trend in other countries:

    (Quartz)

    "In France, for example, a 2015 law requires manufacturers to tell customers—before they purchase an item—for how long repair parts will be available. That lets consumers decide how much they want to factor in the possibility for repairs when deciding whether to buy something new."
    This is what we need in North America. I say any manufacturer that actually respects consumer repair rights (by publishing service manuals, listing replacement components, and using modular/accessible chassis design) should get full TPCR respect. This is something we as consumers need to push harder!

    /rant off :p

    That's why I'm done with Japanese brands (Fujitsu, Panasonic, Toshiba, Vaio). Damaged an LTE modem ribbon in my Fujitsu - took a lot of time and effort sourcing a replacement, and I was very lucky to get it. Wouldn't have damaged the damn ribbon if Fujitsu provided a disassembly instruction, to begin with.
