Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Is Hard To Repair

Surface Pro 4 gets 2 out 10 repairability score from iFixit.

iFixit is famous for doing its routine tech check up for all the new devices. This time Microsoft Surface Pro 4 was the new target.

The new device was quite of a fighter because it did not open up easily. The screen of the device is firmly protected by two cables and glue.

After opening the screen, the motherboard was another problem to look into. Underneath all this is an M.2 Samsung SSD.

This is good for upgrading conditions. The RAM cannot be upgraded because it is strongly soldered upon the motherboard.

There is also a large heatsink made of copper above all and an empty space. The presence of empty space means that there is going to be a fan.

But, it is important to note that the fan will be installed in high-powered models only. The models like Core m3 are not privileged enough to have one.

Overall, when it comes to grade the new Surface Pro 4, it ends up with a mere 2 out of 10 from the iFixit experts.

The only plus point which helped in getting this two was the changeable SSD.

Except this, the firmly fixed and super glued screen to the glued battery are obviously very hard to replace.

Therefore, when it comes to reparability, the new Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is not your best shot.
