Give your Surface Pro 6 the torn down look with this background

Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 is 'a pain in the butt' to repair

Incidentally, the quad-cell battery is the same capacity as last year's model at 45Wh (we noted in our hands-on Surface Pro 6 review that the claimed battery life remains the same as its predecessor, at 13.5 hours).

IT'S REALLY BLOODY HARD to fix a broken Microsoft Surface Pro 6, according to serial gadget fiddlers and pokers iFixit.

As ever, one of the main criticisms dragging down that score is the liberal use of glue, and the fact that any fix necessitates the removal of the display assembly first - and that is "stubbornly" glued in place, and could be prone to shattering as it's prized out.

Save $90 to $230 on the Surface Pro 6.

The battery is firmly glued in place, with its connector pinned under the motherboard-requiring near-total disassembly for service.

To save $90 to $230 on the Surface Pro 6 you need to be a student, parent of a student (of any age) or a military member.

The Surface Pro 6 went on sale this week, and it's already available with $90 to $230 off depending on the configuration that you buy.

Complex construction makes all disassembly and reassembly tedious in comparison to other tablets.

While the disassembled Surface Pro 6 looks neat, it was apparently a "pain in the butt" to take apart, not only because of the aforementioned issues but also the large heat spreader and piping that Microsoft uses to keep the hybrid's Intel processor cool, which needs to be removed to better access the machine's guts.
