Microsoft Surface Pro: What if my Microsoft Surface Pro Needs Repaired?

Microsoft Surface Pro: Are you interested in buying a Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Surface Pro? Do you already own one of these? If you answered yes to either question, it is safe to say that you are hoping for many years of enjoyment from your device. Unfortunately, this is not always the way things work out.

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)Just when you are least expecting it, something could go wrong with your Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Surface Pro. While this may not appear to be a big deal, the professionals over at iFixit want you to know that the job may be more challenging than it appears.

Check out the entire Microsoft Surface Pro Teardown at iFixit here.

Since you may not have the time (or desire) to read through the entire report, the good people at Mobile & Apps broke everything down for you.

Here is their article: Microsoft Surface Pro Scores 1 Out of 10 Repairability Rating From iFixit

A score of “one” means that the device is most difficult to repair.

Here are just a few of the reasons why the device received such a low score:

“The battery is not soldered to the motherboard, so at least no soldering is required to replace it.

The SSD is removable — but you risk killing your tablet by trying to open it.

There are over 90 screws inside this device. We’re proponents of mechanical fasteners, but this number is a tad crazy.

The display assembly (comprised of fused glass and LCD) is extremely difficult to remove / replace.

Tons of adhesive hold everything in place, including the display and battery.

Unless you perform the opening procedure 100 percent correctly, chances are you’ll shear one of the four cables surrounding the display perimeter.”

As you can see, repairing the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Surface Pro is not likely to be a simple task. If you own this device, keep your fingers crossed that nothing ever goes wrong. If you do happen to run into an issue, you will need to hire a professional to find a solution.

What are your thoughts on this? Would you expect better from MSFT?
