    Got my new 32 GB at 7:30 this morning. It's so much faster, smoother, snappier, etc... The new screen coating is great at resisting smudges and is much easier to clean with a swipe of the t-shirt, but:

    Has anyone noticed that this screen is attracting dust like a freakin magnet? Maybe it's just me? Let me know...

    I thought I was just seeing things. This is bad. I hate nothing more than getting dust inside my screen.

    I noticed this too. But, it comes off super easily. A side effect of no fingerprints I suppose.

    Yes, dust and lint seem to cling to it like a magnet.

    It does attact dust. Not as bad as some of you are saying though. Personally, even with the dust I like the new screen better, have even held off putting a screen protector on.

    Hopefully it won't find it's way into the screen. Although sonething tells me it will.

    It seems to, slightly. It's similar to the way the new glossy 17" UB screen attracts dust.

    Otherwise, the new surface is great. It reminds ne if the difference between the new glass trackpad and the old, though not as dramatic.
