While inside the only clear component that seems to be replaceable is the Solid-Sate Drive, all other components are built-in to the custom motherboard.

The battery as we already knew, it’s a 42Wh, 7.6volt, lithium ion battery, also really stuck to the device with sticky adhesive.

And beneath is the mighty Intel Core processor. The particular model iFixit torn down was the Core i5-4300U.

iFixit gave Surface Pro 3 a repairability score of 1 out of 10, so it means that the tablet is technical no-upgradeable. If anyone had the chance to reach inside, the only replaceable component is the SSD. The battery could be also replaceable, but it is strongly attached to the device, which makes it a very difficult task.
