    Hi Surface 2 owners --

    I'm building a case for the Surface that uses magnets to improve usability, and I have the following question for you:

    Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot!

    P.S. You don't have to worry about magnets messing up your Surface, unless you use a super strong magnet and oscillate its strength

    I would be very careful when it comes to magnets and Surface, as magnets can cause damage to the HD and other components causing data corruption and interference... just saying you might wanna take that into consideration

    The Surface uses solid state drives (SSD) not hard disk drives (HDD).

    I'll check on this as soon as I find magnets at home (seriously, not even sure I have magnets lying around, haha) unless someone beats me to it.

    That top power button strip does appear plastic, which is slightly annoying.

    Awesome, thanks oion. I'm looking for any area in the upper edge that's magnetic, corner of the screen is OK too.

    Cheers!

    I have 2 magnets that arent very strong (fridge style). They will not stick for me at these 2 points, but they will lightly stick to the power plug recess.

    Yeah, it's just not a good spot. Front of screen is much stronger.

    Thanks for checking.

    When you say front of screen, do you mean the top left/right corner of the screen?

    Yes, the top left/right corners of the screen.
