It's not so much for *fixing* as it is for *upgrading*. If you want to swap
in a new floppy drive or add memory or what-have-you, it's much easier on
some computers than others.

S-100's were great in some respects -- just lift the ears and the boards pop
right out. Or, drop 'em in the channels and they slide right in. The Mac
8500AV, on the other hand, requires nearly a complete disassembly just to
add some memory.
