While I'm not office iFixt it, I'd say, in my experience I'd give this a 8 out of 10, for repairabily.

On the up side, the screen is held in with clips, meaning no adhsive or heating to open the tablet, unlike what seems every other tablet I work on these days. Lets hope repalcemt parts come in the frame, not require we move the plastic frame over to the new screen. Most of the parts are modular, including the charging port and buttons.

Also on the upside, all the screws are the same size, which makes for easy reassembly. The speakers are also pretty easy replace.

on the down side, the battery is adhered in, and some parts, like the WiFi chip are soldered on. However, looking at this from a Tablet perspective, and not a PC, that's to be expected. It does look like it might be replaceable, even if it is soldered.

I hope to provide updates on this device once I see what replacement parts are like, as well as cost.
