I would never buy a laptop having a bonded construction like the Surface Pro which is difficult to upgrade and repair. See here why it achieves a 1/10 reparability score https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Microsoft+Surface+Pro+7+Teardown/128004

I have one, and the screen isn't replaceable as you suggest. Even the aftermarket repair shops by me won't work on them.

For the price of $400 they have a program that swaps your broken screen surface pro for a shiny refurb. For over a $100 you get a decent physical keyboard that snaps on with magnets and it's stronger than apple's version.

With a refurb program, you don't have two side by side to transfer your data and confirm it's correct on the new one. You back up what you want to a hard drive or thumb drive, and hope it works out when the refurb model shows up.

The refurb program itself is actually ok, the time to receive the replacement is short.
