The VaporMg coating is magnesium and the case itself is magnesium; VaporMg was done for the cosmetic look. Originally MS wanted the solid dark stuff, but I believe due to costs they kept with the "veneer" treatment. In Surface 2, MS simply opted to skip the VaporMg veneer step. I personally like it better, a lot less fingerprint-prone.Off hand, since the exposed parts appear to be the same color as the Surface 2, we shouldn't expect to see these kind of problems?
I remember that too. I would take your peeling Surface to a Microsoft store if possible to try to get an exchange. Problem does seem to be the wear and tear I felt they might say voids the warranty or is not honored for a replacement. Do not give up easily and good luck with the battle.I don't know why they're giving you a hard time! I read a person on here was able to replace his Surface because the windows logo wore off!!! which to me is a silly reason to replace a Surface lol don't give up and def speak to a supervisor!
I agree. It looks like the thing is 10 years old and spent time in a war zone. My comment of wear and tear is something I have heard used a few times with defective cell phone casings. Many times they try to pin all the fault on us instead of their defective piece. I am sure they will say he pealed off the coating, abused it, whatever it takes to not honor the warranty. I am not talking specifically about Microsoft, but many consumer goods companies out there do the same because unfortunately a few abuse the system and we suffer for it. If that was my Surface pealing like that I would raise holy hell and mention I was on certain forums to talk about my situation and I bet they do not want bad publicity. They get that enough from many of the tech sites with their bias against Microsoft and others.sorry but that is beyond wear N tear! that should NOT flake like that in 6 months! that def is a manufacturing paint defect
I would say peel the rest of it off and go for that sexy Sirface2 look. Once its off, no more worrieslol @ kristalsoldier ... yes its sheddings its skin... when complete I will have a surface 2 lol
