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]

It's funny, these OS based product threads (windows/apple/android) are the only ones where people who don't pike it and have no intentions of buying it, will hang around and continually post again and again why they don't like it and bash and bash. Amazing how people will waste their free time, sitting on a forum for something they don't want just to post the same uninteresting crap over and over again. The fact you feel that strongly about it to keep up the posting is just sad.
Mostly I agree, but there are several other oft-posted topics that attract these kinds of folks too. For example - look up pretty much any thread re: a watch deal, and count the number of people who chime in just to say "who still uses a watch?" or "doesn't your phone give you the time?" or "my $5 timex is just as good as this $200 [insert random watch brand]".

No difference the preview was just what it was called when it came out because Office 13 wasn't out yet.
I'd definitely go with the 64gb + type cover for 272. The whole point of this OS is that it is the cheapest, best way to have MS Office out and about, and that requires a reasonable keyboard. However, keep in mind that this is Microsoft being as evil as they can, excluding Chrome and itunes and all their other competition and then effectively giving the hardware away. So it's a great deal, but it is a deal with the devil.

[QUOTE=Squilly;61649800]Will I be able to update to Windows 8.1 on the RT? Or will it only be able to update on the RT 2?


Don't think that is going to happen. Even if it did, you would not be able to install anything like the real 8.1 anyway.

True. I'll bet they're going for rock bottom prices on Craigslist anyways (the Pro, that is).

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.
I don't understand this sentiment. Do you make similar comments regarding Google's products?
