As expected, iFixit have finally torn down Microsoft’s new Surface tablet to reveal what has been placed inside, the first thing they noticed upon opening the device was that the plastic access cover was extremely tricky, causing damage to the tamper-evident label when they finally got it off, which is presumably to let repair depots know when you have been tearing down your own device.

They also found that the LCD and the glass had been fused together alongside a keyboard connector which is more or less impossible to get off without pulling the display first, they did however find that the battery was real easy to remove stating, “it’s way easier to remove than on the iPad.”

At least it’s better at something.

Overall alongside some un-soldered components iFixit gave the Surface a four on their repairability scale, which I think is higher than what the iPad 3 originally received.
