No why would I want to compare with a phone?


MacBook air is for 2 years warranty leh. Surface pro extended warranty is for 1 year.

This is what I see when I registered and try to buy the extended warranty online through the https://myservice.surface.com

Microsoft Complete - 1 Year Extended Service Plan with ADP for Surface Pro 3

Plan covers hardware malfunctions and technical support for 1 additional year on top of the manufacturer's warranty. Also covers up to 2 instances of accidental damage during the coverage period. Deductible payment required for damage claims. Plan covers Surface tablets only - keyboards and accessories not covered by plan. Other exclusions apply. Review contract terms and conditions for details.

Subtotal(Tax exclusive) SGD 214.02


Can't be, see above which was extracted from MS online registration


Got, see above. But I don't know what does this mean "Deductible payment required for damage claims."
It's only a nominal sum of 50 usd for each replacement. Getting the warranty is a no brainier.

the whole screen is liked warped man...except the bottom, top and sides looked "curved"....that's why when the type cover is closed, it doesn't lie flat with the screen....or is it supposed to me like that ?

Contact your retailer and get a new set swap.

Mine seems to be similar. Did you get yours at Digital Style Suntec?

when you put your surface pro on a flat surface, is the whole thing supposed to lie flat on a flat surface or is it curved on one part as shown in the picture ?



the back part of the screen also curved ????

Mine is not as bad. If possible, I suggest exchanging to a new one. It's supposed to be straight as shown at Complete Surface Pro 3 Review - 3 days later | Adobe Flex Journal (see http://www.dotnetmafia.com/blogs/dot...b_3BD2C426.jpg)

My surface is not as curved as yours but definitely not totally flat when laid on a table. The side where the power button is. Maybe its because of the long grey plastic that makes it curve? I noticed the plastic is flat compared to the metal beside it.

Waiting for surface pro 4

When they refine their ntrig stylus and flatten their surfaces

Evershine go exchange your sp3. The curved surface is not even "evenly" curved from your photos. Definitely a defective tablet. Could use paint and circle the part in red but I think it's quite obvious.

The problem is, is that a problem or is it made like that ? SO many people here bought the surface pro, can you guys help verify ? if not i will have to go see their demo set and see if it's like that also.

Do they have demo set at Funan or comex now ?

I pre ordered online, i suppose if want to exchange also do it online. will have a chat with their CS next week.
