And while Microsoft has previously marketed it as "the tablet that can replace your laptop", the Surface Pro now carries the tagline of "the most versatile laptop in the world". The devices were launched at two different events and the company recently started shipping the devices to interested buyers.

The Surface Laptop has been designed by using metal, cloth and glass to bring a unique experience to the device. Whether or not it's actually worth going through the trouble of defeating said welding is another matter, given that the "glue-filled monstrosity", as iFixit dubs the laptop, has none of the user-upgradeable parts you'd want to see in a PC, like memory or storage.

As for the Surface Laptop, which seems to be the same case, earning a repairability score of zero. The main components like the CPU and RAM are actually soldered to the motherboards which are not easy to fix or replace.

As for the Surface Pro, it looks to offer a similar build to the Surface Pro 4 and just requires the screen to be popped off in order to access the internal components. Since the Surface Pro is in such a svelte body, there is a lot of adhesive that is found that keeps things in place. Both laptops are powerful devices as they are made using many custom parts, which could make them hard to fix.
