    I had my SP3/touch cover in a briefcase...stupid me was trying to carry too much and dropped it.

    Didn't worry too much as I thought it would be OK as the briefcase would have protected it.

    Went to use it and found a cracked screen.....ouch!
    Found out it's 216 to exchange it....ouch!
    When I was paying I found out that it didn't include VAT....ouch!

    Hopefully now I've departed with 260 I'll get in back in a week or so. It makes me realise how much I use it rather than a laptop or normal tablet.....

    Sorry to hear about your troubles.. From everything I've read about the SP3, I can see that it's no slouch, so I can imagine what those two weeks will be like

    Makes Microsofts 'Complete' warranty sound like a bargain. Glad I got it!

    Me too! Yikes...

    Anything that can be potentially dropped, especially by my 7 year old son, gets extra coverage.. lol...

    I think its about the same price as my repair, but I can't remember seeing any reference to it when I bought the SP3.

    Probably wouldn't have got it though. I might claim on the house insurance, depends what the excess is.
