Microsoft Surface Go Receives Repairability Score of 1 Out of 10 - [briefly]
03:11 PM EDT - Aug,05 2018 - post a comment

Microsoft introduced their latest member of the Surface family last month, the Surface Go, a $399 2-in-1 powered by an Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor. While the device is commendable in that it offers the full desktop experience (Windows 10 S can be switched to Windows 10 Home) at an affordable price, iFixit opened the Go this week and found it awfully difficult to repair, just like its predecessors. The smaller form factor seems to make the glass easier to remove without breaking, but it's still terrifyingly hard. If this is expected to replace a PC, the lack of upgradability will severely limit the device's lifespan. The lack of modularity, especially on high-wear ports, makes repairs unnecessarily expensive. Adhesive holds many components in place, including the display and battery. Replacement of any part requires removal of the display assembly, an easy (and expensive) part to damage.
