So, now that this has reached the hands of some people, any recommendations on where to get a screen protector?

I also ordered one via Shopback. The 256gb 8gb RAM model for $1788.

Received the $8.36 cashback only so far. The terms said 1% initial cashback but according to calculations $8.36 is less than 1%. Wonder why.

At the bottom of the page, there's this term "From 11 Jan 2018 00:00 onwards, Microsoft Cashback has been revised to up to 7% Cashback."
I also ordered the Surface pro and got less than 1% initial cashback. Have wrote in waiting for their reply

Meanwhile, any recommendations for where to get the best deals for the keyboard and pen?

You will get GST if price of product PLUS shipping cost is over S$400.

As for warranty, if I remember correctly, it's not international warranty like Apple.

Anyone received their SP6 from Microsoft Store yet?

My shipment still in Hong Kong on Jan 19. Don't know what's wrong, it's not moving anymore.
Got to call Microsoft tomorrow to see what's happening.

Finally got my SP6.

Turned out the delivery company sent it to the SingPost office without letting me know.

Anyway, the overall experience of using SP6 over SP 2017 is pretty similar except when it comes to processor intensive task, SP6 is significantly much faster, eg. exporting photos and videos, since it's now using quad instead of dual core.

I've also received email from Shopback saying that the 18% pre-order cashback is valid, but the cash will only be sent back from Feb 28 to 31 March.

Anyone facing any issues with thier SP6 so far? My screen display/color calibration seems to be quite yellowish. Anyone facing the same issue?

Also unable to update my intel graphics driver though.

Hmm, sounds like something isn't right.
Even out of the box, it shouldn't be such.

Any photo?

Colours should be fine out of the box and no calibration is needed. Mine looks fine.
