Still too expensive, and plus the tax, and this price has been sustained at lease one week!

This laptop build, screen, keyboard, touchpad and battery quality is second to none compared with other ultraportable laptops. Yes there are issues with lack of ports and able to repair this laptop but I think it is well worth its price.

How easy is it to upgrade anything inside?

It's whatever word you'd like to use for the OPPOSITE of easy lol
This should explain all you need to know:

"iFixit gave Microsoft's latest Surface devices the teardown treatment this week, and as expected, both devices are very difficult to repair. Just like its predecessor, the Surface Pro 6 got a 1/10 repairability score from iFixit, and the Surface Laptop 2 didn't fare any better than the "glue-filled monstrosity" that was the original Surface Laptop.

As it turns out, it's almost impossible to open the Surface Laptop without destroying something. Some components like the headphone jack or the battery are very difficult to access, and the CPU, RAM and SSD are still soldered to the motherboard. iFixit's Kelsea Weber had some pretty harsh words about the premium laptop, highlighting the fact that Microsoft explicitly acknowledges that repairs cost more than sending refurbished units."

I love the build quality and screen aspect ratio. The killer is the wi-fi - I've had so many issues with the Marvell chip on this and other Surface devices that I absolutely won't get another one until they use a different chip. Hopefully Microsoft will fix that (and add USB-C) in the next iteration.
