Although sales of the first-generation surface tablet were not as satisfactory, Microsoft did not abandon its plan to compete for the tablet market and formally launched Surface 2 and surface Pro 2 in the previous period. As a high-end model in the surface product line, Surface Pro 2 is equipped with the full version of the Windows 8.1 operating system, which is strictly called a super-book with a tablet shape.

To find out what components were used in Surface Pro 2 and to test their repair difficulty, ifixit recently disassembled Surface Pro 2. From the results of the disassembly, the ifixit to Surface Pro 2 was rated at only 1 points (out of 10) and is one of the most difficult devices to disassemble and repair. Ifixit found that in order to put a traditional notebook computer should be all the parts into a very limited internal space magnesium alloy shell, including the screen and batteries, many important parts are used in the adhesive fixed way, in addition to the fuselage also used up to 90 different screws, disassembly is very difficult.

It is worth mentioning that the screen glass of Surface Pro 2 is integrated with the LCD, which means that the screen glass and LCD will need to be replaced if the screen is damaged. In addition, while the SSD in surface Pro 2 is replaceable, ifixit says the ifixit does not recommend that users do their own disassembly by simply accidentally breaking the dense wire inside the fuselage during disassembly. However, time-consuming and laborious disassembly is not meaningless, at least to give a clearer understanding of the internal structure of surface Pro 2 and the individual components.
