The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 put up quite a fight before revealing its secrets to the iFixit team. The screen was held in by glue and two cables. After those were cleared, the motherboard still wasn’t accessible though.
Inside is a M.2 Samsung SSD, this bodes well for upgradeability. The RAM is soldered onto the motherboard, however, so there's no hope of upgrading. Above all that is a big copper heatsink and an empty space – presumably that's where the fan goes on higher powered models (the Core m3 model doesn’t have one).
Overall, iFixit gave the Surface Pro 4 a measly 2 out 10 repairability score. The only positive is the swappable SSD, the rest – from the glued down screen to the glued down battery – is very hard to replace.
Yes, but it's also thinner than your little finger. If it was thicker everybody would have noticed it. When it's thinner and full specs it's not good because you can't repair it. You don't! It has warranty or profesional services exist.
not as hard as ipad repair
I expected more, especially in terms of RAM. Because after all its not some dumb iPad, its fully functional device with normal OS thats is made for work, not only media consumption.
