 Microsoft Surface Pro torn down, found nearly impossible to repair
topic by fat_boyy21 - 02-13-2013, 07:47 PM


Microsoft split its Windows OS into two Windows RT on ARM and Windows 8 on x86 processors and with that there are two sibling tablets, the Surface and Surface Pro. The RT-powered Surface was already taken apart by iFixit to judge how hard it is to repair, now its the Pros turn.



Here are some of the more interesting components found inside the Surface Pro: an Intel Core i5 3317U, a Wacom digitizer for tablet pens, a 64GB SSD and 4GB RAM by Micron and a 42Wh (7.4V, 5676mAh) battery by LG.

You can read the whole post at iFixit for a detailed step-by-step disassembly instructions plus a good deal of surface-related puns.

Spoiler alert: the Pro got the worst reparability score of 1/10, making the usually poor 4/10 score of the WinRT Surface look pretty good.

This is about user repairs, not reliability.

Bloody hell i have never had the balls to do anything like this! I'd rather just give it to the pro's to repair or replace!

Reason why its so terrible is because of the complexity of the build, consider a full on PC in a very small package, so i would a$sume with time, a$sembly will start become more simple.

This is also another reason why you dont see the major manufacturers of PC/Laptops create complex designs, simply for this reason. They will get faulty systems under warranty and it needs to be fixable as cheap as possible.

I could only imagine any tablet will be similar in user repairs.
