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:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/32GB-Micr...2a30c60cb3

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]

It was listed on the eBay front page as the deal of the deal. Their user base is much larger than SD. So I wouldn't say it's because of us.

Anyway there is no software to install on it (as much as Android) 16 gb will do just fine shake head
I know you are trolling but I just want to say to others who are interested that 32gb is not enough, at least for me.
my 32GB asus windows rt tablet became full before I had the chance to finish installing all the games and apps I am interested.

there is a way to hack the system to install apps on a SD card but it is not convenient last time I checked. Maybe there is a better way now. I don't know. But if you are a moderate app user, my suggestion is to get a 64GB!

Kind of tough doing large spreadsheets on a phone. I tried it a couple times, but it was definitely a no bueno.

High-definition refers to an increase in display or visual resolution, retina resolution is certainly greater than 720p panel ipads.
It's also about the screen's orientation. The ipad is not an HD display.

Actually, in the end Microsoft does *not* loose. 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 $199 all-in price. This is good business all the way around.
They obviously sell at 200$. That is not the point. They are still loosing money on it tho this way.

No company wants to get back a bunch of used products back, and having to re-sell them at half price ( less than half in this case ).

Sure they make some money from apps too, but there is also other costs incurred, that the 284$ the guy quoted previously doesn't include.

Bad business all the way around lol. There's some articles regarding this, but the CEOs departure is the most obvious sign and should need no further clarification.

They moved out of CA while they could.

It's too late for you now.

Quote from kwadguy View Post :
One of those places Android is lacking is in memory management. Memory leaks and out of space system partitions are common. These aren't minor issues and place Andoid far behind iOS and RT...

In fact, the issues that Android has are really an embarrassment for an OS that is so widely deployed.
Memory leaks are a byproduct of poor memory management by applications, not the operating system. Android does have the ability to free up RAM automatically when an application is closed but doesn't release the memory. You're wrong.

A system partition that runs out of space is due to someone not providing enough space in the first place. Every operating system in existence must deal with this same problem, yet you've convinced yourself that this is an Android problem. You're wrong.

My guess is that you bought a cheap tablet with limited space, installed a ton of free and poorly supported applications on it, and had some issues. Then instead of actually learning anything about what may be causing the problems, you decided to barf out something about it being an Android problem.

Incidentally, if you're running out of space, you can mount additional space into the same /system partition. It's very easy to do, but that would require you to actually learn a little about Android, which you seem inclined not to do.

Nonsense. The tablet is almost a year old now, and it's a safe bet the Surface 2 will be out no later than October 16th, when Windows 8.1 launches.

When it released, Surface RT was a bad value proposition, and that's undeniable. $600 for the tablet with heavily advertised keyboard cover was no deal, especially given the limited app market and the low resolution screen. However, fast forward a year and there are well over 100,000 apps available, the tablet has sold a couple million units (putting it well ahead of Google's craptacular Chromebook, which took 18 months to sell a measly 600,000 units, while Surface RT sold a million in 60 days, and Surface Pro sold 400,000 in 3 weeks), and we're on the cusp of the next generation of devices. It's EXPECTED that this tablet would go on sale at heavy discounts--EVERY tablet that approaches the 1 year mark goes into discount mode, if they even make it that long.

Look at the bigger picture. This is just the beginning.
You must be the new intern in the Microsoft marketing department--a fresh face troweling out the same tired talking points that you guys have posted in every Windows RT thread on SD since before your trainwreck of an OS debuted. Can't you guys at least try to vary some of the "the cusp of the next generation of devices" and "this is just the beginning" hyperbole from thread to thread? It's so repetitive it's funny.

I get that Microsoft's marketing and public relations departments can't attract talent, but this kind of writing is so lame that a Marketing 101 student at a community college would be embarrassed to use it.

I was really in the market for a Pro version and wanted to see what the Surface RT 2 brought to the table before any purchase, but I couldn't pass this up for $199 with a touch cover, free 30 day return policy, and 1 yr warranty. I'll try it out and see if I like it. If I don't, nothing lost. If another deal comes up in the next 30 days, no big deal that way either!

This in and out of stock thing all day has had me sweating making a decision on this. Had to order on my phone too because my work blocks ebay. Good stuff!
