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. [ebay.com] (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:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/64GB-Micr...5920884%26

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 [zdnet.com], 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 ... http://www.ebay.com/sme/manufactu...1185920884

Accessories:
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 [ebay.com], which is a subdivision of Secondipity [ebay.com], the latter which has a feedback rating of 16,726 and 99.2% positive feedback.

PayPal says the Seller is Liquidity Services Inc.

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 [microsoft.com] 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 [microsoft.com]. 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. [gizmodo.com]

Dont forget how many will 'hate' a product only because someone else does. That's an alarming number that will chip in with troll posts. No one tells someone how to adapt to Windows 8 - everyone proclaims they hate it and so those that have nary a clue, now hate it too. This is an awesome piece of hardware, very capable and beautifully built.
I tried one at a mall and I thought it was pretty cool but then I saw how non-supported it was compared to Apple and Android and I can understand why there's so much hate.

Yeah but these are refurbs, not new .. so technically these probably sold as new at some point, and then MS makes money again by selling them for $150 to the liquidation company.

And the $285 to manufacture is a year old as well - costs drop DRAMATICALLY within the first year of these things. MS should have these down to $150-$200 to manufacture at this point (or less).



+1 !!!
I don't think the retailers loose and MS just walks out with free tablets that were returned.

MS will reimburse the retailers and then is stuck with used merchandise. It's then reconditioned and tested and sold to a 3rd party who takes care of these things.

Sure costs price drop, but who is to say these weren't produced at the very beginning for 280$+

In the end MS looses. Consumer doesn't, retailer doesn't.

Unsupported? Do you realize that the Windows 8/RT marketplace is growing at TWICE the rate of the iPad store? These only seem to be off to a slow start because they started 2 years later. Those of us who adopted the iPad early on remember how empty the app store was of native iPad apps, and how utterly HORRIBLE the upscaled iPhone apps looked and worked on the device.

Rome was not built in a day. Neither was any app ecosystem ever deployed.

Bought one just because this shit keeps coming back. Something is wrong I hope this isn't a scam or else eBay is gonna face a MAJOR lawsuit for featuring a scam as their daily deal.

Actually, in the end Microsoft does *not* lose. Why? They get their devices into the hands of customers who either weren't willing to risk $500+ or couldn't afford to, those customers see how good the device is (and it's much better today than it was at launch, to boot), and that becomes positive word of mouth--ESPECIALLY at the $199 all-in price. This is good business all the way around.

UGH WHY CAN'T IT BE THE PRO
I'm so tempted to get this but I just don't need it right now... If it was the pro, though, I could write it off for work...
