    Screen Replacement: What adhesive can be easily removed again.

    I bought a Surface pro 3 with a cracked screen and have been working on replacing it. As I'm sure many of you know, getting the screen off in one piece is a near impossible feat.

    How much force can Surface pro 3 screen support without getting damaged?
