    As if the screen was not well barricaded by the glass, like when you put your fingers at your television, for instance, when I use OneNote and write something, I can see the LCD being touched, even with very low pressure. Is this normal? Should I return it? Also, in the upper right slot of the screen, whenever I put some pressure with my finger I can hear a very soft clicking noise. Maybe I am just paranoid about it :crazy:. Anyway, I hope you guys can help me, thanks.

    Go to the closest store to you and try it, if you see it there then it's normal. I can see that when I use the on screen keyboard, to me it's normal.

    Doesn't sound normal. My surface also makes a clicking noise when I press on the bottom.
    It sounds like the screen isn't attached correctly.

    I've noticed this too when pressing fairly hard due to the pen not being sensitive enough. A driver update is supposed to help, but I haven't tried it yet.

    Anandtech noted this in their review as well. Hopefully can be alleviated with pen pressure tweaks so we don't have to push down so hard.
