It's been long established that MS created the Surface devices (at least the Pro ones) to showcase what the software can do on good hardware, since OEMs were doing such a piss-poor job of it, in the name of minimizing expenses and maximizing profits.

I am curious if you have seen some tear-down article somewhere that made such comments


The tear-down articles invariably mention how easy (or difficult) the hardware is to take apart for some "repairability score", which has little to do with the choice of hardware used. I didn't buy the tablet to take it apart or replace hardware. In this sense, MS isn't any more guilty of any wrongdoing than, say, Apple is with its own tablets.

But what do I know, I'm just using my own 5+ years worth of experience using the device first-hand to judge it with, not based on the opinion of some blogger paid to rip MS to shreds because it's the popular thing to do and makes for a clickbait headline.
