    I can distinctly see light bleeding from the center of where the stand connects to the unit, when the stand is flipped open.

    Anyone else?

    Nothing here either. As far as I can tell, the back is entirely enclosed.

    No light bleed from mine. Correction: I just looked again more closely, and I can see light where the center hinge attaches to the back. There's a small gap that allows light from the screen to leak through. I don't think it's anything to be concerned about.

    Light bleeds out from the ports on the sides of the device and from the center of the stand, when the stand is opened.

    it's pretty cool when I first saw it. Didn't think it would be a problem. Old windows xp tablets have light bleeding out of them too because they need air valves

    A couple of weeks ago I was looking at the same thing. Strange design choice but in the end it doesn't matter to me. It may simply be MS's hardware inexperience showing (not having enough experience to consider such details).
