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.

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. []

The 64gb is the same price but without the touch cover.
This, I might have to get. The 32GB is kind of tempting, but I don't like the Touch cover and I'd be buying the other keyboard anyway.

Great deal, I just need Microsoft to sell me a 3rd arm with this deal. I have an ipad, a touchpad running android and only 2 arms. How many touch devices can I possible use?

Please find me a slickdeal on one of those robotic arms I can attach to my body.

Darn you slickdeals. Decisions.....decisions....

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!

Tegra 3 and low-res screen. Hardware is nothing to brag about.

This is not the same keyboard cover in this deal. The RT has the jelly like keyboard. This is the upgraded, more expensive model that is better. It is not included in this deal!
This one? []

Dude, Microsoft did not sell enough new Surface RT to have this many refurbished units. They are most likely brand new marked as refurb to avoid embarrassment.
I think the estimate sales figure as of July 2013 is couple millions unit before they dropped the price. So up to now, could be few millions units. If even 1% of the units are returned, it will have at least 20 thousands returned unit for them to refurbish.
And in this case, the return rate may be even higher because after people play with it, they don't like it?? Smilie If 10% returned item, we are talking about potentially 200 thousands+ returned item that can be refurbish.

What's Windows RT Pro?
It's kinda like the Surface Pro, except for the one fact that it doesn't exist.

That price tells you everything you need to know about what a total trainwreck Windows RT is, and what a colossal embarrassment the Surface has been to Microsoft.
1300 sales an hour don't seem to care so STFU.

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?
It crashed the day he passed away. Jesus. I am comparing investors reaction to Ballmer and Jobs news.
