    Just curious if the backlight bleed on these is once again prolific.

    Just a little on the sides during boot up but none during normal use.

    I booted 2 demo units on display at Best Buy -- they both looked a lot like my SP2 during boot-up, with the light bleeding around the screen edges, one of them had a little bit of uneven light spots in the center. Not noticeable during use though, unless you make the desktop all black. Must just be current screen tech -- my iPad did it as well.

    There is a little bleeding on the sides and some blotches in the upper corners. It seems normal for the type of displays. Not quite as good as my MacBook Pro retina, but better than my SP2 and ThinkPad Yoga.

    Some bleeding is pretty normal for IPS Screens....

    I've got absolutely none on: M8, Xperia Z2, iPad Air, Retina MacBook pro, 3 30" desktop monitors, Nexus 7, Nexus 5.

    So "normal" is a stretch for me.
