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.
