The Nexus 7 tablet has been receiving rave reviews for packing a lot of amazing features and a fast processor into such a slim, sleek and (most importantly) cheap device. Rumor has it that Google is actually losing money with each tablet sold because the company has spent so much on their Tegra 3 chips and fancy displays. Just like what they tell you in preschool, it's what's on the inside that really counts. 

The Nexus 7 has been torn down by the site "iFixit" and rated a 7 out of 10 for ease of repair, with 1 being the hardest and 10 being the easiest. The frame comes off with a quick turn of the screwdriver but the display has been fused to the Corning glass, so good luck being able to repair this tablet if you drop it – repair costs will be much higher, as it will require replacing the whole display assembly, including the LCD.
