Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Gets The iFixit Treatment

New tablet computer Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 has been shown recently, as well as its competitor in the face of the latest Apple iPad Pro with a screen of 10.5 inches. If you do get one, though, you'd better hope that nothing goes wrong with it.

The teardown was carried out by the stalwarts at iFixit who have dismantled numerous Surface devices in the past, and awarded all of them poor repairability scores. But either of those common repairs will result in the Surface laptop visiting a recycling plant or, worse, being destroyed so no data is accessible and then dumped into landfill.

Obviously, the software giant is doing so, beginning with the new Surface Laptop, and that's good to see.

In conclusion, it said that it is "a glue-filled monstrosity". Well, that's exactly what this official Surface Laptop recovery image allows for - resetting your notebook back to how it was when you first received the machine. Since the device is not meant to be opened or repaired, it required the folks from iFixit to cut the Signature Alcantara material-covered keyboard to access the internals of the device. And while most of the device might comfortably get through a couple of years of use, batteries are often need a midlife replacement. Once in, the main components like CPU and RAM are soldered to the motherboard, making replacing the parts impossible. iFixit notes that it is extremely hard to poke around the insides without damaging the product.

This means that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is pretty hard to fix, you can find out more details over at iFixit at the link below.
