Microsoft engineers when developing an updatedthe model range of Surface Laptop 3 laptops paid special attention to device assembly technology, providing increased maintainability. Previous models of Microsoft computers were not very adapted for repairs, which negatively affected the popularity of laptops. The Surface Laptop 3 used a magnet mount system, as demonstrated by the Microsoft manager during the demonstration of new devices, when Panos Panay easily disconnected the top of the laptop right on the stage.
However, with a more detailed disassemblyexperts found that the Surface Laptop 3 still had problems with maintainability, however, this figure improved significantly compared to the previous model.
IFixit specialists were able to easily disconnect the entirethe top block of the laptop, since magnets and a single flexible cable were really used for fastening. Also, the solid-state drive is quite easily disconnected, which ensures its quick replacement. After dismantling the top panel, you can audit and replace the monitor.
The problem is replacing the battery, whichattached using adhesive bonding. It is difficult to carry out repairs using a multilayer design scheme. As a result, iFixit experts noted significant progress in the maintainability of the Surface Laptop 3 and assigned the laptop 5 points out of 10 possible for this indicator. It was noted that the use of magnetic compounds did not affect the shape and geometric dimensions of the device.
