Dell’s Concept Luna Is a Snap-Together Laptop With No Screws, Few Wires

Last year, Dell unveiled its vision of a more repairable computer with recyclable parts called the Concept Luna. This year, Dell brought back the concept and made tearing it down much easier. Oh, it lets the robot do the repairs.

The new concept is more ambitious than last year’s. The previous system was also fanless, but this system is actively cooled. To my eyes, the steel and plastic chassis looks very similar (but not identical) to the Dell XPS 13 Plus, but Dell engineers say nothing about it.

Previously, four screws had to be removed, but the new design opens by inserting a pin (a SIM card removal tool or paper clip appears to work as well) into the Noble Lock slot, opening the “keystone” above. Pieces can be removed. keyboard. Removing that piece unlocks the keyboard so you can remove it without the ribbon cable. It is connected to the system via pins. In fact, few cables come out one after another, such as batteries, fans, and motherboards. Similarly, displays come out using pins. This will allow you to remove the display ribbon cable. (Note there is a large empty space in the chassis as you can see in some pictures. Perhaps this is where a discrete GPU or larger battery could go missing mosquito?)

Dell engineers and representatives wouldn’t tell me what components the system was running on, but it powered up and booted into Windows. Few minutes. However, I know this is an x86 system. When I asked if it ran Arm , there was a clear denial.
