[* black] We temporarily shift our attention to a more screw-y, less glue-y portion of this desktop, in the hopes that we will have more luck in removing it.
-[* black] The hinge mount's casing, attached by a few clips, comes off easily with just our hands.
+[* black] Lacking a specialized tool for the job, we hand-beasted the hinge casing off the back of the display. A slew of tiny clips keep it tightly stuck with no adhesive or screws.
[* black] Underneath lurks a pair of antennas, significantly-more-than-a-pair of springs, and loads of screws.
[* icon_note] The springs, 80 in total throughout the hinge mechanism, are what allow the monitor to transition from vertical to nearly-horizontal with just a light touch.
[* black] Removing the screws securing the hinge to the display is like playing Russian Roulette: some are spring-loaded while others are not. We test our odds, and manage to select all of the correct screws for removal, detaching the base without a springtastic explosion.
[* black] Hopefully this stroke of luck will help us get through the tricky display opening as well ...
