The Surface Book Isn’t DIY Friendly

The DIY repair crew at iFixit has torn down Microsoft's Surface Book, and it looks like DIY and the Surface Book don’t go together. Just about everything is glued or soldered, and the "upside down" circuitry means that you'll be yanking out the whole motherboard to access parts. About the only thing you can replace is the solid state drive, and that's provided that you can get the system open. This is disappointing but not surprising as this isn’t anything new as even Apple makes it impossible to change any internal components. What do you think of Microsoft taking this approach ?
