Despite getting off to a very shaky start, Microsoft’s Surface Pro is now a firmly established product that can genuinely replace not only your iPad, but your laptop too. However, there’s potentially bad news for anyone who purchased one of the company’s slates before 15 July 2015.

Surprising that the warning notice is only a "voluntary recall" and that one might be careful using it for the next little while.

 

Microsoft sayYou'll have the chance to order a free replacement cable starting on January 22nd. Microsoft hasn't said when you can expect to get it in the mail, but it's safe to say that you'll only want to use your existing cable only as much as necessary until the newer, safer model arrives.

Seems like it's more of an issue with owner abuse than design to me :lol: Good to see they're replacing them for free
