The Microsoft Surface Pro 3, which was just made available to consumers last Friday, has received a full teardown from the electronic repair site known as iFixit. The website rates various gadgets on their reparability, noting how easy they are to repair on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being the most difficult and 10 being the easiest. The Microsoft Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2, which preceded Microsoft's latest tablet offering, received a reparability rating of 1 due to various factors. The trend continues with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 as it has received the same rating, with iFixit noting that some serious adhesive is present that holds multiple components in place within the device. Due to this, along with the display being comprised of a fused glass panel and LCD that iFixit claims is extremely difficult to remove and replace, it is no wonder why the latest Surface tablet received the rating that it did.
