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]

these were not shipped from the seller, these were shipped from a Microsoft warehouse. I bet if they call the customer support number they will get a better response from Microsoft than the seller.

Example of what? That independent developers are attempting to charge for the apps they develop?

You started out by saying...

Who is "they" in your statement? Microsoft? THEY didn't write the Pinterest! app you obtusely referred to. Are you implying that Microsoft should force developers to give their apps away for free? Are you suggesting that Microsoft should subsidize these app developers and pay them what they're asking for so that MS can give the app away for free?

It has become apparent that you don't have an understanding of how app stores work.

You are wrong---

If your app store has 100 apps and 80 apps are paid apps.
Compare to apps store with 1000 apps with 500 paid apps..

Now do the math..

Bought the RT for my wife,because of OFFICE...
But she said it would be nice if they had a few good apps,then she wouldn't need to switch between the Surface and Ipad...

just saying..

Exactly. Check out the price of Temple Run OZ... $0.99 on iOS, $3.50 on Windows RT. Why is RT's version 350% more expensive? That's for the very few apps that you can compare cross platform.

I love my Surface RT for what it does, but I'm not going to kid anyone that the app store is great or that one should even expect to have a lot of use out of the app store.

Agreed!

If the want to compete with Android/IOS they need to change theirs prices...

Most people who bought the Surface RT,already own and Ipad or Android device...
We just want experience something new or maybe branch out to a new platform..

Got my Surface + touch cover a few days ago--all is well! Like new condition, works great. I like it a lot Smilie

The purpose of this particular tablet in my household is for easy native remote desktop access than iOS and Android allow (I use Splashtop and a number of other apps on them for that purpose), MS Office, great touch cover, usb / wireless mouse capability, and a number of other things that we've been missing out on since selling all of our laptops some years ago and just sticking with desktops / smartphones / tablets. This tablet fits our niche need perfectly well.

It's like the week when I miss everything I wanted to buy!
I wanted to get a Surface just for the proper OUTLOOK alone, forget about anything else..
Since MS is not willing to release an actual Outlook or Exchange application for iPad without 365 subscription, I want to get a surface just for that..

Strange... After using my surface for over a week now and getting all the updates with no problem, i received another update today. After getting it, i've had a weird buzzing sound coming form left speaker. Every time I type on the touch cover and the built in keyboard and when its first booting up or completing certain tasks..(wait this just in: when it goes to sleep as well) it makes a buzzing sound. I recovered and restored and still the buzzing. Happens with volume and without. Disabled volume and still the buzzing. Sounds like a digital 8bit chainsaw. Hmmmmmmmmm

Edit: Noise is gone when headphone's are plugged in...

Similar problem..
