At the end of the year comes the time to review some of the curiosities and this time we will talk about iFixit, the popular website that is responsible for disassembling the devices when they reach the market to verify on the one hand what they hide in their interior and on the other the degree they have reparability .
And in this 2018 that we are about to seal, the most recent models put by Microsoft in circulation have not been left to say, very well classified. Specifically, both the Surface Go and the Surface Laptop 2 go through the worst gadgets of 2018 in terms of repairs.
We will not go into details about the Surface Go and the Surface Laptop 2 that we saw in his day. It is a convertible tablet and a laptop, specially designed for the educational environment, more than interesting. Economic price and adjusted benefits … and very difficult to repair.
In fact, they occupy the last two rungs in a group in which the five worst devices are the iPhone XR, the Samsung Galaxy S9, the iPad Pro and to finalize the two Microsoft models. Of course, the Surface Go earns very little to the Surface Laptop 2, it gets a degree of repairability “1” while the laptop achieves a “0” good blunt.
iFixit justifies this low score due to the fact that both models carry both the screen and the battery attached. They bet on non-standard connectors and non-replaceable elements.
Not that it is a basic factor, but it can be taken into account when making us with a device. The ease of repair can make a difference, especially when we have exceeded the legal term of the warranty coverage and we suffer some unforeseen.
