I just unpacked my new ThinkPad X1 Carbon touch and noticed that it appears as though the screen has a protective plastic film affixed to it. It is most noticeable around the mic and cam, where holes appear to exist.
I can't find any documentation saying that this should be removed, and it's not easy to pry the sheet off at the corners (in fact, I've had zero luck, but haven't tried much because I don't want to damage anything). Do I keep trying to pry the sheet off or assume it's part of the design?
There is a protective film layer that covers the display and should not be removed.
This extends over the viewing area and stops about 1/32" from the edge. There are circular reliefs around the camara and two microphone ports at the top of the screen where this layer can also more easily be seen.
