Quote from SweetChildOMine :
Is it true these things are next to impossible to open up and do things like replace the battery or the SSD?
The Surface Laptop 3 was a significant improvement in reparability from the previous generation which could not be opened... the previous gen scored 0/10 reparability from iFixit, but this gen scored 5/10 reparability. There are screws under the feet at the bottom that allow the keyboard to be removed magnetically, and you can replace the SSD. No battery replacement though.

Can be opened, but not easy. Battery cannot be replaced.

SD if it had 512 GB SSD, not 128 GB.

Keep in mind after the Surface Pro 7+ was just released for $899+, hints of the sl4 coming by fall, they're dumping the SL3 and SP7 like mad.

Sp7 is basically the same cpu, but lighter tablet mode. $600+ on sale.

...

2-in-1 notebooks from dell, hp, lenovo, etc are all faster 11th gen tiger lake models, optimal 4k oled, more ports, etc.

Compare and think - often, alternatives give you more of what you need like usb ports.

If you need egpu, not the sl.

I bought this exact model, 256gb ssd back in June of 2020. I love it! Ultra light, touch screen, great display, and amazing keyboard. Also, the keyboard cover is a fabric material instead of metal which is nice on the palms. Also supports type C charging. I bought a small 90w wall charger that I carry with it as well as a 95w power bank which charges it from 0 to full fairly quickly. Overall, extremely happy with my purchase and have used it pretty much everyday for school and work. I got mine for $850 open box from bestbuys ebay account. at this price, it's a no brainer.

The Surface Pro is a different form factor though right? Looking for something I can use while sitting on couch, etc. Surface Pro wouldn't work in those scenarios....

Pro is a tablet with a tent stand - awful on the lap with that thin metal stand digging into the lap. You'd have to use the kb cover flipped under to act as a base.

The storage SSD can be upgraded easily.
The RAM, no unless you know how to desolider and resolider in ball RAM.
