Surface Pro 3 Paint Chips


New Member
Hi All,

Does the SP3 suffer paint chips like the SP2 did (especially around the power port)? How durable is the paint finish, and what have been peoples experiences thus far?

I have had my SP3 since launch day in North America and it is in as pristine condition as the day I bought it. I use the device everyday for long hours and I travel internationally with it quite frequently. When at home, I travel everywhere with it. All this to say that I don't exactly molly coddle the SP3 but the again, I am a gentle user and don't really throw it around and it always travels with me in a Incipio sleeve that came with the device when I bought it.

I believe the SP3 is sliver, because that metal it's made from is -- it's not coated with that color.


Technically it's not paint but a few microns thin sprayed on coating on the metal surface to cover it and give it a nice finish. It will scratch easily and mine has lots of scratches on it but i really don't care as it's not affecting the device functionality.
