The site specializing in the dismantling of high-tech products iFixit has awarded a rating of 5/10 at the level of repairability to the latest laptop Microsoft.
When you buy a laptop, you usually know that a breakdown is often synonymous with going to the SAV as the disassembly of a compact machine is delicate. Some machines are however tamed more easily than others on this point. What is the latest Laptop Surface Laptop from Microsoft?
For iFixit , the site specializing in dismantling and repairing high-tech products, tackling a Laptop Surface had never been a good experience. Surface Laptop 2 had even inherited the worst rating, a 0/10, with comments that explained that the machine was simply not designed to be opened or repaired without inflicting damage.
During the presentation conference of Surface Laptop 3 Microsoft had shown that the opening had been facilitated in this evolution. And good surprise it has been confirmed by iFixit who has just delivered his verdict. The opening procedure is judged to be simple and the design clever with immense progress compared to the previous edition. Similarly, replacing the SSD in M.2 format is no problem.
On the other hand all is not perfect since the note is only 5/10. Thus the screen block must be changed completely in case of failure of a secondary component while others remain difficult to access. The worst point is at the level of the strongly bonded battery that will be difficult to change at the end of life, and on a laptop, it always happens.
