They're much easier to recycle! But, common failure parts like HDD and Batteries . . . too bad, fuck off and buy a new one

Microsoft's new Surface laptop defeats teardown – with glue • The Register

'IFixIt ultimately gave the Surface a 0/10 for reparability – a full point lower than the Microsoft Surface Book’s 1/10. ®'

'DIY site iFixIt tried to take apart the new Microsoft Surface laptop – an ultra-thin and light unit which starts at £979 – and seemingly couldn’t do it without completely and utterly destroying it. '

'It appears as if Microsoft has been following the Apple playbook in creating another laptop whose components you can never replace. '

'Attempting to crack the box apart, the teardown team met resistance from metal feet instead of screws, clips, adhesive, fabric cover and soldered parts. '

'After navigating through walls of plastic, tape and clips, the site found that it would be basically impossible to replace any of the components. '
