    It looks like the new Microsoft Surface tablet got the reverse-surgery breakdown by the masters of tech dissection at iFixit. Overall, the tablet scored a below average 4 out of 10 on repairability. This is worse than the Kindle Fire HD and the Nexus 7; however, despite it's low score, it still bested the iPad in terms of ease of repairs. If you like to check out the innards of tech devices, but don't feel brave enough to void your warranty to do so, check out all the pics at the source link below.

    Unfortunately tablets and phones are considered consumables these days and are not really meat to be repaired :( Surface looks pretty tough though so hopefully it will live long enough without repairs that the owner has gotten their money's worth and is ready to move on before it breaks.
