iFixit Posts teardown of the Microsoft Surface

iFixit has posted a teardown of the new Microsoft Surface.

Notable tech specs:
● 10.6″ ClearType HD Display (resolution of 1366×768 pixels)
● Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
● 2 GB RAM
● 32 or 64 GB flash storage
● Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n) + Bluetooth 4.0
● 720p HD Front and Rear facing LifeCams

Microsoft Surface Repairability: 4 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).
● Several components are modular and replaceable without requiring desoldering.
● You can remove the battery pretty easily—once you’ve suffered through the opening procedure.
● It’s pretty difficult to remove the rear panel and gain access to the device.
● It is impossible to remove the keyboard connector without first removing the display from the frame.
● LCD and glass are fused together and strongly adhered to the case, increasing cost of replacement.
● You’ll have to use a heat gun and lots of patience to gain access to the glass and LCD.
