    Hello guys!

    Today I took SP3 out of my backpack at the beggining of some class and all of the sudden I saw this:

    I've no idea how it could have happened. I keep my Surface in a cover and carry in a special part of my bag intended for laptops. What could be the reason of this rupture?

    Will the crack spread? TBH it seems to be really small.
    I thought that the magnesium body will be more solid.

    I don't think it will spread. Sorry about that crack. Could be a manufacturing problem with the extruded metal.

    A skin from Stickerboy.net or DecalGirl will keep that out of sight, and keep moisture out, if it bothers you. The skin might even add a little strength.
