Surface Book 2 gets torn down, repairs are tough - TechAmok

Surface Book 2 gets torn down, repairs are tough - [briefly]
04:33 AM EST - Nov,19 2017 - post a comment

The Surface Book 2 was available for pre-order last week, but you can now head to a store and make your purchase on the spot, as it made its official retail debut on November 16. While it is a beautifully crafted machine, it seems that just like its predecessor, the Surface Book 2 isn't terribly easy to repair. This information comes from the folks at iFixit, who took the unit apart and gave it a repairability score based on the difficulty of dismantling it. The Surface Book 2 seems to be glued into place at every access point and requires quite a bit of heat and force with prying tools. Once inside, there are tons of screws that keep things together on the tablet portion, along with many ribbon cables and various connectors. While the processor and RAM are soldered to the board, the one shining beacon is that the SSD can be replaced if needed. Again, this will require quite a bit of work, but its good to know that it can be done. For this reason, the Surface Book 2 scored a rather paltry one out of ten, the same score as a number of Apple's MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops.
