Microsoft Surface Pro Repairability Score: 1 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

The battery is not soldered to the motherboard, so at least no soldering is required to replace it.

The SSD is removable — but you risk killing your tablet by trying to open it.

There are over 90 screws inside this device. We're proponents of mechanical fasteners, but this number is a tad crazy.

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% correctly, chances are you'll shear one of the four cables surrounding the display perimeter.
