Repairing Surface Pro is gonna be a headache, iFixit

Microsoft”s new Surface Pro tablet PC is a version upgrade with drastic enhancements of its Surface RT, but it is gonna be extremely hard to repair, ifixit.

The repair pros at ifixit had the Surface Pro opened and examined. The Pros found that is it was impractical or impossible to repair the device, and provided a “1 out of 10 reparability score”.

“One huge problem iFixit found is if you do not open the case perfectly, you will almost certainly break one of the four cables surrounding the display. So there’s a good chance you’ll break the damn thing just from trying to peek inside or trying to fix a minor issue.”

“Report Said

  • The battery is not soldered to the motherboard, so at least no soldering is required to replace it.
  • The SSD is removable .
  • More than 90 screws are inside this device.
  • The display assembly (comprising of a 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 precent correctly, chances are you’ll shear one of the four cables surrounding the display perimeter.”
