I received my SP3 from Microsoft online yesterday only to found out today that my charger is faulty. Contact Microsoft support this morning and they said will ship a new charger for me. The old faulty one can keep.

oh.. where did you contact?
I tried contacting their live help on MS Store, but they tell me to call technical help, at that time not available.
Mine I had to email their signature support to actually get any form of help. :\

SP3 i7 Overheating

Update - The microsoft guy is going to collect my SP3 i7 coming Friday.

Sigh. Do you think I should I just get a refund and buy i5 instead?

why ah? I have used both versions I don't find much difference between them. Is there some situations where the 4GB ram model slow down a lot?

Surface Pro 3 Ghost Glass Screen Protector | MIME

That is what I bought though. My US boss is using it and it doesnt interfere with pen.

How is the fit, does it gets very close to the edge of the screen?

Those I see those selling on TaoBao has 1-2mm gap from the edge of the screen

I just saw photos from Adix, the $58 glass screen also has big gap from the edge of the screen, similar to those selling on Taobao, I might as well buy from Taobao.

Why so many looking for glass protector?

I have got a normal protector known as healing shield from qoo10.

It did the job well.

I'm not a heavy pen user but simple selection, dragging and writing is ok. No scratch or damage to screen protector or pen.

Hi can you go to the PC info page and check the turbo speed whether it's 2.3 or 3.3 Ghz? Thx

You can try calling Nicolas at 9029 8485 to check out the price and type of screen protector
