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 ?
Even the online review at Complete Surface Pro 3 Review - 3 days later | Adobe Flex Journal shows that the center of the screen is slightly bent inwards, although it is definitely more straight. Looks like a manufacturing issue.

Bro, I took a picture of my Surface Pro 3...and my base is FLAT. It is supposed to be flat when placed on a horizontal plane like a table top.



From your pic, I can see the corner abit warped leh...dun look "normal" to me IMO.

Microsoft will be releasing 2 versions of the Surface Pro 3, namely, the Curved Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 3. The former utilizes the advanced Ultra-hardened curved Gorilla glass 3.1, much like the LG G flex. The other standard version will come with a stock Gorilla glass 3. As both versions will be shipped randomly on a ratio of 3:1, it will be down to pure luck depending on which version you will receive. Microsoft is interested in feedbacks from customers of both version and no returns/exchange will be entertained.
Tucksoon and Livewings like this.

I suppose if most of you are having the same problems, i dont need to exchange.
get it exchanged, it's a defect.

good luck on dealing with MS Store support though.
