[* green] To the extent that screws are used, they are all standard Torx fasteners.
[* yellow] This tablet still has a headphone jack, which is modular and replaceable, if you can get to it.
[* red] All repairs require first removing the display assembly—which is stubbornly glued in place, expensive, and prone to shattering.
[* red] The battery is firmly glued in place, with its connector pinned under the motherboard—requiring near-total disassembly for service.
[* red] Once upon a time, Surface Pro storage was removable—but not in this versionremovable—now it's just a fantasy.
