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]

You forgot to mention the real price difference. Extra $100 just for the tablet. Extra $135 for the keyboard dock. So $235 more, and you're still stuck with just an adequate atom tablet with lower PPI. Don't forget sales tax on the tablet which is about another $18. There's a reason why I'm keeping the Surface and selling my Ativ 500t.

Nope. Picked up a nice leather sleeve for it, transferred my work files over to it, got Dropbox and Netflix on there. Haven't used my Note 8 since I got the type cover.

Hi,

Could someone please direct me to the person in this thread who suggested an app to play MKV files without hiccups, please? I remember a few people quoted him and asked him what app he installed, he replied but I forgot the name. I tried searching this darn thread for almost an hour and can't find his post. Thank you.

You're thinking of Mobile.HD and it's from another thread.

i will say there arent many games for it, but i dont play tablet games anyway.
its more functional than any other tablet and for $199/$250 it still cheaper than anything else of this size/quality.

I just installed 8.1 on mine. I was pleased with the performance before with 8.0 but am delighted with 8.1. It must've did some additional housecleaning in the process because I ended up with 3-5GB more free space.

I had bought 2 of the 32GB ones with the touch cover. Put the ad on craigslist for $325 for 1 of them on monday. I got some low ball offers like $225. Wasn't interested in selling for that amount.
Then an university student showed interest in the ad on wednesday. I said the lowest price will be $300 and she agreed for it. I sold The Tablet to her on thursday.
So I made $116 profit and yes I got a "nice story for you , Bro" Smilie
