He bought a new set with a scratch. He should be getting a new set back, not a refurbished set.
Apple will NOT do ANY WARRANTY SERIVCE on an iphone that has scratches.

the warranty is considered void for any damage to the casing

just be grateful that microsoft has offered a refurbished set for a scratched unit.

buy at telco that time, if scratchy can open another new set. scratched phone also can claim warranty for other things if its not due to water damage etc

Yeah, it's better, but Microsoft should not have offered a refurbish set. The more I read this thread the less I want to buy a Surface Pro 3. It's ok if they offer a refurbished set to replace a faulty unit that has been in use for a few months, but to replace a new unit with a refurbished one?
Time for me to bring my cash to better use then, maybe a slim gaming notebook~

I still waiting not sure when it might actually arrive... as long as I do not see a physical set right before my eyes. I not in the rush to get it just yet.

This is great.... but I wonder about the cpu have to work alot harder... and becomes alot hotter, is there any one here with SP2 check out vm whether does it cause higher cpu processing and heat ? I believe graphics apps would or I might be wrong. Most reviews have not much depth.

I know it's good enough to play Civilization 5. That's good enough for me.
