    Maybe the best. The build quality of Lifebook T and Stylistic series are superior to almost any other brands. It's a pity that they adopted a sluggish oak trail.

    The screen is lifting at the bottom (near the windows button). I've arranged for an exchange.

    The dock seems to make things worse.

    Love this computer. Really upset at this issue.

    The screen is lifting at the top above the webcam.

    It's not bad really but I'm out of luck being in the UK as no-one wants to know :(

    HLVJ93KBB00xxxV

    Bought at Tysons corner, VA store on Nov 17, 2011

    Couple of days and I haven't noticed anything yet. They didn't give the free dock (and I'll try to get it today or tomorrow). Then I'll try with the dock as well.

    The bezel and back are firm. And I've the 2 year Microsoft assure plan.

    Even when it is not charging, I notice that it is quite warm at the back top. Also can hear the fan noise. Any ideas to keep it quiet?

    No dead pixels.

    I haven't tried the stylus completely. Will update after trying it out.

    So much lift! The entire edge on the dock side is separated with dust getting under the touch layer and one of the other edges has a gap where I can see all kinds of stuff getting in.

    I bought my first one on 11/24 and I don't know the S/N sorry,it hada slight raising of the screen and some creaking. I didn't return it because of that though, my USB port went out and couldn't get beyond the BitLocker PIN. I exchanged and the new one has no issues feels much more solid. The S/N ends in "D".....

    Slight lift developed at the bottom left and right corners over the course of two weeks, but seemed to stablize. No lift at all on the top edge or by the windows button.

    Was very solid until today. Thought I had completely gotten lucky. Took it out of the sleeve and at the bottom, to the right of the Windows button, it had completely popped up. To the point that very little flex can lift it all the way up, and when you push it back down it makes a little cracking sound.

    Immediately called Samsung, sending it in for repair. Would rather do that than get a new one. I don't have much faith in that assembly line. They better fix this damn thing. Not just because I paid good $, but because I freakin' love it.

    So to those who have had it less than a month and think they have a good one...beware...
