iFixit's teardown of the HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet revealed that Google's new tablet will be a tough gadget to fix, if damaged. One of the reasons for this is because the LCD is fused to the display and the glass, making it easier to replace the entire frame than repair it.
The Neus 9 scored a 3/10 on iFixit's Repairability Index. But this shouldn't worry you much. Go ahead and purchase this slate, if you had already fixed your mind on it.
