    if anyone was ever annoyed like me about how much longer the disassembly/asssembly takes because of the antenna cables you have to thread through the hole in the motherboard - i finally went ahead and removed mine and its very fast - only 4 screws to get the monitor cover off and 4 more screws to get the 2 antennas off, and its reversible if you ever change your mind

    a micro-usb sized wifi adapter works just fine

    makes assembly much faster

    Sounds like he completely pulled the antenna cables from the LCD assembly.

    That sounds like disassembling the screen lid, ok.
