HP Elite x2 G4 Repairability Score: 9 out of 10 (10 is the easiest to repair):

All screws are standard Torx or Phillips—only three drivers are needed for complete disassembly.

Easy access to repair documentation and replacement parts by HP makes self-repair more feasible.

A modular and flat construction allows access to most components early on.

The flash storage can be easily upgraded or replaced, but the RAM is soldered to the motherboard—not unexpected in a tablet, but still a bummer.

The display is fused to the front panel, simplifying repair but increasing the cost of an LCD or front glass replacement.
