Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Repairability Score: 1 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).
The SSD can be replaced, but not without first risking damage to the tablet simply by opening it.
The battery is not soldered to the motherboard, but very strong adhesive makes removal and replacement a hazardous chore.
Non-standard connectors make for tricky display removal.
The display assembly consists of a fused glass panel and LCD, and is extremely difficult to remove and replace.
Tons of adhesive hold everything in place, including the display and battery.
The delicate and arduous opening procedure leaves no room for mistakes: one slip-up, and you'll be out a screen.
