After the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet went on sale last week, iFixit has this week decided to tear down the new tablet, taking a look at how the device has been constructed, and how the tablet can be repaired with easy to remove components.

After they have done all of this, the team will give that device a ‘Repairability Score’ between 1 to 10, 10 being the easiest to repair, and 1 being the hardest.

On that scale iFixit gave the Surface Pro 3 a score of 1 out of 10, due to t number of reasons, including the battery being glued and soldered to the motherboard, and a range of non standard connectors.

Lastly iFixit said that removing the display was hard, and was made from a fused class panel and LCD. iFixit did however mention that the SSD can be replaced, but the job would not be easy.

Check out the source link below for a quick look at the tear-down and photos.
