    Im traveling in north america and Ive already purchased a Surface in Canada. Sadly I had to return it twice in 2 different stores due to pixel and light issues. (pretty bad luck) Now Im on my way to the US and im thinking: Where should I buy it? Should I give it a shot in the US? Im kind of sick of trying it in Canada.

    Is it safe and simple to return/exchange inthe US as it is in Canada?

    Would you favor one place over the other or it's all the same?

    The US warranty is valid only in the United States so if you do not live here you are effectively buying a grey market product without a warranty.

    If I buy it at Ms store and i take it home I cant returnor exchange it later then?

    I hardly ever manage to find issues while in the store. You have to take your time to actually play with it.
