Well, these are new. The last time we tore down a Surface Pro, we encountered a display connector trapped beneath a springy metal bracket.
This time around, there are two cables holding the display to the body, preventing it from being opened like a book on any hinge. Our only recourse: tackle those connectors.
And of course, Microsoft has modified their connector design. The display connectors are relatively common press-on connectors—similar to an iPhone display—but they're trapped under snap-on metal shields.
