Hi there! I recently complained about one scratch in my Surface's kickstand lid. It was from a piece of metal on my Jeans. Since then, partly because I am(was) still not 100% sure if I'll keep it, I really treated it like a raw egg. Whenever I put it somewhere, I put it on the keyboard's back not to scratch the back when laying and sliding it somewhere. Today by coincidence I checked the backside of my device and it looks just awful!!! Scratches on both sides and in the middle, where the kickstand hits the body. How can anybody be so stupid and apply such a sensitive Surface to a mobile device?!?! How can the world's biggest IT Company be so stupid?!? Seriously, just because of that I'd return it immediately, but now for sure I can't. How will it look in 2 years? Tomorrow I'll sell my iPad. It's almost 3 years old and I treated it with less care. Guess what? I could sell it as new. There are NO visible traces of usage. Just NONE! Oh boy, I'm really angry! I don't trust this company any more. This is just too much. They are acting so bloody brainless. How can one put regular paint on such a device, not an electrochemical finish (AFAIK) like ANYbody else is doing it for a good reason? Ok, yes, I know, the SP2 is alone in it's league. And I still want such a device. But why on earth can't they build it properly?
