  • Answer to: Need to replace broken digitizer

    No it's not, the Surface Pro & RT are completely different. The LCD is bonded to the digitizer so you need to replace both. They are now selling both on Ebay, the digitizer and the LCD separately so it is possible to make your own, if you ever need to you can just replace one or the other.

  • Microsoft Surface Pro Teardown

    It's actually not that bad to tear down, I'll take it over an iPad anyday. Just a handy heat gun and watch all the cables at the bottom.

    I would be hesitant on a new surface pro or pro 2 however, I purchased a 64gb pro on ebay with the screen already broken. Following the guide here I got the screen replaced and upgraded the SSD to a 480GB
