Microsoft Surface teardown: Peek inside

Here’s the iFixit.com dissection of the Microsoft Surface tablet, showing what’s inside.

The company rated the Surface’s repairability a 4 out of 10. The battery is not too difficult to replace but the LCD and glass face are fused and bonded to the frame, increasing the display replacement cost.
