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]

I just sold mine for $325 with some accessories.

I still have the touch cover left if anyone is interested PM me.

- faster
- better battery life
- 1080p screen
- battery cover
- windows 8.1
- and eventually it will run Windows phone apps

I'm put my Transformer TF700 on criagslist now.

Thanks SD for opening my eyes to Windows 8. I heard alot of negatives for windows 8 interface and RT but now that I've used it and see the ins and outs of it I"m no longer one of those lemmings that bad mouth something without even trying it.

I have two issues that are a little annoying.

No silver light or across the board flash. I felt like I was in the walled garden of a certain fruit company getting directed to download pages that mean nothing.

No local Dropbox sync. A bit shortsighted to have Sky Drive as the only local cloud sync in a world where many businesses share files on Dropbox. I think Box can be mapped as a network drive which is cool, but you have their limitations plus you need a network connection.

I like the Surface 2 specs, but I'm not touching it unless those issues are addressed or they have another refurb fire sale like this.

The new Surface 2 looks nice, but at $449, it should include the touch or type cover... just can't compete at that price without it, in my opinion anyway.

Pretty cool that the touch cover is now back-lit though!

yea, the only downside every review says is the lack of apps.(a smaller screen size is probably not going to be possible but not sure if that's a downside)

I would be in if it's $449 with the type cover.

If you think about it. they shouldn't try to sell it at such a huge margin. as they own the app store also.

Google is huge and they sell the Nexus at pretty low price and hope to gain the $$ back through it's app store and increase in user base.

That should be the path Microsoft should be taking. to build it's userbase up. and so it coaxes developers to make win8 metro apps.

but instead it tries to do an Apple thing by charging high preiumum for it's device. Problem is that the Surface is not "cool" (despite all those young hispter type kids dancing crappy commercial) and not the "in" thing that people buy and it's not a fashion statement like apple products.

With the jail break and ported APPS I pretty much got all the apps I need to be productive.

I'm going to wait for the Surface 2 + power type cover to come out. also to see reviews and make sure the jail break works before buying.


Hopefully someone will buy my TF700.

I think that there is a good possibility of Microsoft doing something with the RT on Black Friday... a few years ago, 2007, they sold the Zune 30 on Black Friday for a door buster price of $100 (that was the same year that they released the next gen Zune 80). That caused the Zune 30 to be one of the most sought-after gadgets that holiday season and drew attention to the Zune 80. Microsoft severely underestimated the demand of the 80 that year.

Lol, i got the $100 zune at that time. At any rate, I don't think this will be the same. MS has too much at stake to start a firesale this time around.

I wonder if you can trade in your refurbished RTs to Best Buy and get credit toward the new version: http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-57607097-75/best-buy-will-give-you-up-to-$350-for-your-surface-tablet/

For those who kept their Surface RTs - the free upgrade to Windows 8.1 is out today and it adds Outlook 2013. Just go to the Apps store and you'll see the link for the free download.
