For the Surface Pro owners out there, you best be careful with your device. Mobile device repair site iFixit has taken the Surface Pro apart and rated its ability to be repaired a 1 out of 10, the lowest score possible. Just to open the device, they had to remove over 90 different screws.

Other notable devices that received a similar score would be the Retina iPad, which received a score of 2/10, and the Retina MacBook Pro, which received a 1/10 score because of all of the adhesive used to secure things in place.

The Surface Pro makes use of a "metric duckload" of adhesive to secure the screen. While we're not quite sure just how big a "metric duckload" unit of measurement is, we have a feeling it's not a small quantity. Basically, you shouldn't attempt repairing a Surface Pro unless you are a trained professional and have lots of practice.
