you cannot say this in general.

This is a different class of machines. They are made to be repaired and they are very large.

I have had a Fujitsu P2120 which died after a lightning strike. So, I disassembled it. The machine is so small that they have had to use all tricks get it this small.

The most interesting thing for me was the affect of damage to this machine. It got hit by something like a sledge hammer when it was not with me. This bend the magnesia cover but did not cause any internal damage. The material is very brittle but no metal dust fell into the machine.

The P2120 uses even a special glue to connect the graphics chip with the hear sink. The heat sink cools also the CPU. There is no way on this machine to take the heat sink off and later back, if this glue is not at hand.
