10 steps to replace the battery and destroy the computer in the process? It is truely pathetic when you can't replace something like the battery which you know will eventually die. Microsoft is turning into Apple. This is just a waste of resources. I pity the landfills.
The Surface Laptop is finally vanquished disassembled!Verdict: The Surface Laptop is not a laptop. It’s a glue-filled monstrosity.

Yeah, Microsoft impressed us—by being way worse than we expected.
