Magnetic Cases Safe For Surface?


New Member
You were always told to never put magnets near electronics but now it seems most the devices themselves has all sort of magnetic features and the Surface has loads.

My question is, there are loads of cheap cases out there for phones, tablets etc which use magnets to stay shut or to stand up and I want to know they are safe for the Surface? Specifically the Pro because it has the special pen detection grid that most tablets don't.

You never know what kind of magnets they are putting in these things, could be strong neodymium ones which could wreck the screen, touch system or other components. It's not like they are going to test them out where they are made in the millions.

Anyone got magnetic cases?
