The surface with Windows RT has finally become available and has turned out to be one solidly built device. iFixit lets us have a look into what makes the Surface and its VaporMg material into an iPad-like quality experience.

The good news is the batteries are fairly easy to replace and most of the internal components can be removed without de-soldering.
