Really ? Is this refund situation very messy ?
It just takes time. They have to get your surface back, make sure it came with everything, then contact the credit card company to do the refund and that takes time too as the credit card company will have to process it.

You haven't initiated the process? You only have 14 days from the delivery date to do so. Better hurry if you want it.

It's pre-paid but when U get your refund I think they will deduct the shipping costs all from the refund. Do check with the CS on this.
Turns out for Surface its different. They are going to come collect from my house. Quite good service.

Will they collect and give you a new unit at the same time?

Anyone has any ideas/suggestions/remedies for the fact that the type cover is a fingerprint magnet? I mean, I totally love typing on it but after I am done I look at the keyboard and I sigh....

My type cover is blue, by the way.

Getting a refund so no new unit. You have to ask somebody who is asking for a replacement about that process.

I cancelled, I just stick on to my unit, too lazy to go through all the one process, for a slight curve, unless its really unusable then I will do that. as of now, its still acceptable

At least you have your Surface. I'm still waiting for my tracking number. Microsoft is literally the worst.

Yes, overheating is the number 1 issue for SP3 now. Heard there will be a major update coming up in the next few weeks which might resolve this, but at a price, which I think is throttling.


Well, I can pretty much confirm the SP3 i3 does not have any heating issue at all. I max out both the GPU and CPU 100% (running CPU and GPU miners) and can see that it draws a total of 11.5W (from openhardwaremonitor) CPU package temp only at 70+C doesn't even touch 80C


Both GPU and CPU also running at its max clock speed.


Also, I have notice that the i3 have a lower Idle clock speed than i5. i3 clocks down to 0.57GHz while the i5 goes down to 0.75GHz. (this maybe due to the i3 is a Y part while the i5 is a U part.


I have not have the time to run a full battery test, but when I limit the clockspeed down to 0.57GHz, the battery life seems to be better.. great for reading webpages and PDF(didn't feel that its slow)


So far am pretty happy, I am currently using just at 0.57GHz speed for web surfing, reading PDF, spreadsheets, words, youtubes, watching HD Videos 1080P.. all no problem at all.. Not slow at all. Just wish that Microsoft shouldn't have crippled the i3 with just 4GB ram and 64GB SSD.. if only there was a 8GB ram and 256GB version of i3 SP3.. it would be more than enough for a lot of people as a mobile device.

anyone got a delivery by singpost from Microsoft? I got a failed delivery today but i never order anything else beside SP3 and it has already been delivered.

i didn't use DBS/POSB card so it shouldn't be the "limited edition" messenger bag right
