If you are like us, we loved the Surface hardware and have been generally pleased with the build quality too. The cool kids over at iFixit got their paws on Microsoft's latest goods and did their thing; they tore it apart.
The teardown doesn't reveal much but it is always interesting to see the engineering and design that goes into creating a tablet. After reviewing the tablet, it is clear that Microsoft spared no expense on build quality as the fit and finish was impeccable.
You can see all the breakdown images at the source link below and the iFixit crew gives the reparability of the Surface a score of 4. That score means that it is relatively tough to repair, but not impossible.
We have yet to hear of any Surface accidents that would require fixing up to this point but we are sure the need will arise at some point in the future.
