    They sure are, like them a lot. Gives texture to help grip the unit securely while in hand.

    I agree. I don't use any protection. Just the keyboard and a sleeve that I got when I purchased, "Complete".

    I don't use any protection. I take care of expensive devices. I don't see the logic in buying something who's form factor limit its CPU and GPU capability, only to bulk it up with a case. Might as well have just bought a clunky laptop that needs no protection.

    I don't use anything to protect my SP3 either other than when traveling I put it in a Booq Viper hard case. Having my SP3 thin and light is what really makes it shine. I did buy Complete and perform regular backups just in case.

    Amazon Basics line of brief case bags...very inexpensive and sizes small enough to be just right for Surface 3 or surface pro...$20 or less...and very well padded

    My homemade fiber carbon/glass/polystyrene sleeve, light and very strong. I've done 3 crash test (not voluntarily) falling my SP3 1,20m high from my backpacker and no problem. ...[​IMG]

    I'm struggling a bit to figure out a good case for my SP3 now that I upgraded my keyboard to the SP4 version.

    I used to use the UAG case but the new keyboard has a shorter folder near the connecting point, so it won't fold around back of the case, like the SP3 keyboard. I took my old Moko case and cut the front cover off. This works well but I'm not keen on the look nor the protection it provides.

    Right now, I am going naked but using a sleeve(#1 on the list at Amazon) to transport. I may get a skin to protect from scratches, but I'd like to find a case similar to the UAG(gotta be a bit thinner tho) that allows the SP4 keyboard to fold around back.

    when im not using it, its in my storm solo sling bag. i have no covers or skins on it and besides a couple bumps and bruises, it has been fine. the keyboard cover has been more than enough for me
