For the wifi it's fairly simple but you have to take your time and make sure you get all the screws out, then you have to work your way around the edge very carefully with a plastic separator or credit card to loosen all the clips, it's buried in the center of the machine, not behind some easy access panel. There are three tricky (tiny and flat) screws by the optical drive and one inside the HD bay that I missed at first... You will need to take out the optical drive to reach two of them.

Screen real-estate aside, 1366x768 is what?....100ppi on a 15.6" screen? A 24" 1080p monitor is 92ppi? (is my Math correct?) Yes, your face is typically slightly closer to a laptop screen than a monitor (16" as opposed to ~24" for a rough number)... As I said before, I agree that 1366x768 is a bit low, but I'm not sure it's worth a $200 (50% higher cost) premium to me. It shouldn't have to be this way.
