Student Discount only for ITE/JC/Uni right? Seems like no way to bypass this right?
Try asking your friends? It just needs a valid and active local school email.

Redid my pre-order. Anyone knows of a local shop selling SP3 screen protectors? I prefer a matte screen ...
I was also thinking of that.. I was thinking maybe Adix might have it? Gotta check with him lol.

Very good question, I have check with Microsoft that your credit card amount will only be debited when a set has been allocated to you and schedule for delivery.

According to the current info and timeline, rebate should be in August since delivery is promise before Sept.
You are right. MS said that I will receive it on launch day as they will be shipping it out a week earlier. Since MS will charge upon ship, it will be charged by 3rd week of Aug. Anyway I got a sms notification from OCBC that payment has been charged via PayPal: )

That's what the online chat said. You can try asking her as well That I should be getting it on launch day which I believe is 28 Aug.

Edit: MS facebook said by 31 Aug and encouraged early order due to the high number of orders received. Hope it is a case of under promise and over deliver.: )

Me too! My main concern is the hardware reliability especially after warranty ends. Even with extended warranty till 2 years, I don't feel very covered

No major complains about the old surface pro or surface pro 2 that I can find online. It feels like a very well designed product when I handled it last weekend.

Already preordered and looking forward to bringing my touch screen PC with me in such a small and compact package with a nice stylus.

BTW anyone knows what does the free messenger bag looks like, if I paid using dbs cc?

If it is good I may use it instead of the Frank card. Understand from the MS facebook that it is applicable even for student discount.

Yeah u can initiate a return but only within 14 days from delivery. And items must be in perfect working conditions and look. Thats from what i read.

Great point. One key benefit of ordering online. Question is whether there is a restocking fee like Apple? The MS website did not say anything about admin charges or restocking fee.
