I bet a lot of people out there think they're pretty hard on their gadgets. I know I tend to scratch mine up, drop them, and generally I just don't treat them particularly well. I'm nothing like the guys over at iFixit though, they literally tear every gadget they get apart. The latest gadget to get ripped to shreds at the hands of the maniacal gadget hounds is the new iPad mini.
That iPad mini probably isn't in the hands of most people who ordered, but if you folks did get one early. The tear down shows that Apple really doesn't want you getting into this gadget any more than it did the iPads of the past. The tear down isn't quite complete, and the steps are being added as they're finished.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
