Warranty: Message #1226 earlier from slimstrike:

Go here and login or create a Microsoft account then you can register the S/N. My 64GB is good until Oct. 2014 and also had the option to buy the 2 year Extended Service Plan with Accidental Damage Protection for $99.

Current status as of 10:24PM EST:

32GB Surface RT with touchcover: OUT OF STOCK
64GB Surface RT without touchcover: OUT OF STOCK

If the tablet you want is out of stock, keep resfreshing this page. [] (Sellers keeps removing and re-adding the items)

32GB Microsoft Surface RT with Touch Keyboard Cover Refurb $199:

64GB Microsoft Surface RT (Without keyboard) Refurb $199:

Note: This is a manufacturer-refurbished item.
It carries the same warranty as new Surface RT's purchased at retail, and has been tested/restored by Microsoft to a working condition equal to new products. It has a 1 year warranty, and 30 day return period.

Although the Touch-covers (mylar one-piece) and Type-covers (actual moving keys) say they're on sale for $60-75'ish ... they're actually not a good price, particularly if they're only "seller refurbished", since this means the cover has only been inspected by the seller, whereas these Surface RT tablets are "manufacturer refurbished", meaning Microsoft has deemed the unit to be equivalent to a new unit in funcitonality. Touch covers now have a MSRP of $79 [], and Type covers should be about $99, so saving only 20% to get a used one (albeit in good condition) isn't a SlickDeal(tm). You can find the remaining stock of covers from the reseller here ...

eBay is also running double eBay bucks from 11am PST to 3PM PDT. (2pm EDT to 6pm EDT) ... better hurry!

The seller for these Surface units is listed as Manufacturer Certified [], which is a subdivision of Secondipity [], the latter which has a feedback rating of 16,726 and 99.2% positive feedback.

PayPal says the Seller is Liquidity Services Inc.

Surface RT Specs:
Windows RT Youtube Review
Important notes:
  • This is the Surface RT (running Windows RT, like Win8), not the Surface Pro (which runs Windows 8). It cannot run regular Windows desktop programs. It can only run apps compiled for Windows RT, and those apps are only available from the Windows Store.
  • On the plus side, Windows RT includes a version of Office Home-Student, including RT versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. A couple of difference between Office RT & normal Office is that they can't include user-programmed content like macros/addins, nor does it do background sync to SkyDrive. See this page [] for more info on Office RT differences.
  • The bootloader is locked, so currently there is no prospect for being able to put Android or any other OS on this tablet.
  • Because the OS is locked down, the only web browser available is Internet Explorer compiled for Windows RT.
  • The Windows RT app store is limited in selection compared to other, more mature tablet OS's like iOS and Android. If you need to use a certain app, check first if it exists specifically for Windows RT via Windows Store Search []. Search results that indicate support for ARM processors are available on Windows RT.
  • Windows RT 8.1 update is coming on October 18th, which will include Outlook, as well as a simple Start menu.
  • Windows RT takes up about 15GB of storage. Link. []

From a hardware standpoint, this is awesome! I'm looking forward to using it with remote desktop to run real programs. Great price point simply for the hardware!
All the other tablets can run remote desktop also.

Not picking on you but that really isn't and added benefit of having a MS Tablet.

I bought one as posthumous work of Ballmer. I'll REALLY miss his surface, surface RT, and missing start button whenever I use this refurbished 199$ tablet.Smilie

The 64gb is the same price but without the touch cover.
Which means it's $100 more, because that's what the touch cover will cost you, and this is pointless without the touch cover.

Add your own flash media to up the storage and get the $199 32Gb + keyboard deal.

And that's a hell of a deal if you can live with the paucity of apps in their app store.

Apple stock crashed when Steve Jobs died. Microsoft stocks actually went up by 4% when Ballmer announced his retirement
When Steve Jobs passed away the stock was hovering around 420. For about year after it climbed to 700. and it is currently at 487. What crash are you talking about?

somewhere it is said RT is dead...

can this load android?
RT isn't dead. There is an update coming in November. Also, the underpinnings of window have been ported to ARM to support things like windows phone, windows rt, etc. At this point, windows will likely continue to move forward and support both ARM and x86, so it is unlikely RT will be cancelled or die anytime soon. (Even if it never got upgraded again, the system is a great value as is.)

There is not an option to load android that I am aware of. After you use Surface RT for a week or two, you wouldn't want to anyway. It is pretty great, the main complaints from people tend to be
a.) It can't run windows apps. (Neither can android or iPad).
b.) It doesn't have any apps. (It has a ton, but question shouldn't be quantity. See if it has the apps you want.
c.) It costs too much. ($500 was too much. You aren't paying that you are paying $200 and getting a keyboard.)

Quote from zipykido View Post :
I agree this is a really good price. It's what Microsoft should have launched it at. That being said I'd rather have an android tablet or iPad since you can still remote desktop with those as well. Windows RT doesn't really bring anything special to the table unless you want to run office, but that doesn't matter if you're remote desktopping anyway.
"Only" advantage of Office? I'd say that's a HUGE advantage over ANY Android or iOS platform. HUGE. Try using Office over your remote desktop on a plane without Internet and let me know how that goes.

This is an actual productivity platform.

If you mostly want to play games, get something else, though.

Or if you want one of the 2000 apps that are added a day to the Apple appstore with names like "guess which letter of the alphabet I'm thinking of" you probably want to go that direction.

In for one. A tablet with Office and the future prospect of Outlook in the RT update sold me.
