I'd buy a surface if Microsoft hadn't gone the planned obsolesce route. It's one thing to solder components in place to save space. However, its unacceptable to use epoxy to make it impossible to open the case or replace the battery without cracking the screen. Sure, it's profitable, but it's environmentally oblivious at best. I bought a Yoga instead, and couldn't be happier with screws and swappable components.
