Microsoft Surface is Hard to Repair
As you know Surface is Microsoft’s first tablet and the company is very proud of what it has made, but according to iFixit the sleek external shell is really hard to open in the case you need t repair it. For about 17 screws hold the back in place, while seven from which are under a plastic bezel that is difficult to remove.
However, there are few interesting chips inside of the Surface one of them is NVIDIA Tegra 3. There is also 2GB of DDR3 RAM from Micron, 32GB flash storage from Samsung and a Wolfson audio chip. The 31.5Wh battery is smaller than on the Apple iPad 3. The screen can be seen after pulling out some components and it is made by Samsung. iFixit also points out the resolution of the screen is 1280 x 800 instead of the advertised 1366 x 768 res, but the info on it is sketchy this maybe due to mislabeled WXGA.
Anyway, the Microsoft Surface got the score of 4/10 for the reparability.
