Regarding the curved surface issue, as I ordered mine thru a local vendor, which would be a better way?
1) Call Microsoft and ask for a replacement, risking that they'll give you a refurbished set, or
2) Wait 2-3 weeks until that local vendor has stock (according to them) and do the exchange then.

The first one might be faster but somehow, I am more inclined to opt for the second option. At least can choose the right set. What do you think?
Second one...same reason as abv. no point getting a refurb set for a brand new item.

Isn't option 2 going to be risky if the local vendor can deny an exchange due to the time frame drag too long ?

Then what about pre-order directly from Microsoft stores sg, we only have options 1 ? or options two is also valid as well ?

According to them it's due to high demand but I sense something is wrong after they told me to go to M'soft instead. After all, I called them just a day after getting the set. I should've opened and looked closely but then again after "years" of experience, still keep on doing the same mistake. Probably too excited to rip it off at home.

I've noted down the sales person who offer the exchange at their store but need to wait 2-3 weeks. I think I'd rather take this route than receiving another messed up system. Possibly a unit that one of you guys exchanged from here lol

If you pre-order via Microsoft, the only channel is with them.

And their favourite options like any Apple stores they will do you an exchange to get refurbish set .... hmm if I call for a refund... I will lose student price right ? Any experience user here done this before ?

You have to get black and white from them first before exchanging that they will honor the student discount. For such a big company, technically speaking, you'd need to follow the current deal if you place a new order. Unless you choose to return your set of course.
