It doesn't hurt that Google's only remaining tablet also got a bit of a discount.

The team at iFixit took that a sign from above from the mothership really to finally give the tablet-would-be-laptop a good and thorough teardown.

Curiously enough, RAM is only at 3 GB while storage is either 32 or 64 GB.

What really makes this tablet special, aside from its sleek industrial design, is the Bluetooth keyboard cover accessory that magnetically latches onto the Pixel C, transforming it into a makeshift laptop.

Especially considering how that panel is glued tight, foreshadowing the rest of the teardown process.

The slightly good news is that a lot of the other parts are actually modular and easily replaced, including the USB-C port, But getting to those involves a lot more work and risk than is reasonably necessary.
