exactly what I observed. ironically, the Surface Pro might be more stable in this way (assuming you have legs long enough to stretch out the kickstand)However, I actually did notice it wobble more than other laptops. It's not an issue when rested on a hard surface like a desk but it is noticeable on uneven or partial surfaces like on a lap. When typing hard on my lap I noticed it wobbling. Not a deal breaker, but it is somewhat annoying.
