    Hi all,

    I've already posted this issue at , but no one is coming back reporting similar issues.

    Along the left-hand side of my i5 8GB Surface there is about a 3mm strip that doesn't appear to have oleophobic coating applied. It appears that the coating was applied slightly off center. Anyone else have this with their Surface Pro 2017?

    RESOLVED:* I received yet another i7 8GB unit today, and it could easily be used as a demo unit for the press.* It's beautiful.*

    The bezel is securely attached to the screen above the camera and so there is zero light escaping from between the bezel and the screen even in a pitch black room (or closet, as it is now day here).* In addition, the oleophobic coating has been applied to the entire screen, unlike my i5 unit which had a 3mm gap in the coating along the left-hand side.

    I was prepared to live with the oleophobic issue of the i5 unit should this i7 unit had arrived today faulty as well.* I was also would have been happy if the light leak between bezel and screen was only noticeable in a darkened room (with the camera light on).* Happily this unit doesn't suffer from any of the issues of my previous two units. So, both the oleophobic coating and bezel light leakage are both manufacturing build issues.
