Microsoft’s Surface isn’t even 3 weeks old and there is already issues emerging with the build quality of the Touch keyboard. My Touch keyboard was just over a week old when I first noticed the fabric around the hinge starting to come undone. For the last 4 or 5 days I’ve been battling this little tear, repeatedly pushing it back under the magnetic bar that connects it to the Surface only to have it pop out again the next time I fold the keyboard behind the screen.
It’s really too bad, because the keyboard itself, is a wonderfully engineered piece of hardware. It’s amazingly good to type on, and incredibly thin. Unfortunately, it just looks like they cut the fabric a little too short where it goes under the hinge. Hopefully this is issue is limited and a simple exchange means you won’t have to deal with it again. The thought has crossed my mind to get the Type keyboard with the actual moving keys, but I don’t really need the extra width. And while the moving keys may be more traditional, I find the Touch keyboard to be very good at what I need. Torn fabric aside, of course.
Anyone else seeing the same problem on your Touch keyboard, or having any other problems with it?
