Tablets get ranked by repairability: Dell XPS 10 is first, Surface Pro and the iPads last

Woa a score of 1! That's quite bad for reparability this also means the cost of a 3RD party repair shop could go really high.... Though the added size and weigh would have made things more laptop like and much more easy to repair

You shouldn't have to, this isn't just a question of cost, it's incredibly wasteful to have to throw out a broken tablet for a new one rather than just fix it.

Interesting that the tablets usually reviewed with the highest build quality- iPad and Surface, have the lowest repairability ratings. With all

Just because it looks nice and has nice outside materials, doesn't mean its of high build quality.

Are you claiming that the iPad and Surface are not of high build quality? Becaue the general consensus anoung reviewers is the the iPad and Surface are built like tanks and owning one and having used the other, I agree.
Plastic builds with snap off back covers seem to rate high on repairability by iFixit, but I wouldn't want to drop one of them, nor are they of high quality.
