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]

Have you ever used Android LMAO? Now that's an embarrassment of an OS. You can argue that a lot of people have bought android devices, but also a lot of people voted for Obama. Just because a lot of people do it, doesn't make it a smart move.
Let's bring politics to a Windows forum. That is a smart move

There's talk that in a future update, the code between Windows Phone and RT are going to be merged. If such an update does happen, and it makes it down to this machine, you have yourselves one hell of a bargain.

That's a mighty big "if", though. And I also think this will hit $150 before too much longer.

you cant run Windows app on windows surface RT. You need Windows RT pro to run windows appsshake head
Yes, not sure why they have both Windows Surface RT and Windows Surface Pro. Most people want Surface Pro but not at that price.

And what do people use their Surface RT for? Is Win 8 RT contain enough apps to do what people want?

Everyone hated the HP Touchpad when it was $499. At $99 it all of a sudden became very popular

If the HP Touchpad could sell for $99, the Surface can sell for the same....I'll keep waiting Smilie

That was a way to get the touchpad out in the market, current price of touchpad is higher.

if you only need a laptop that can run office for basic tasks than this is a pretty nice deal...I have no need for another tablet and am waiting for prices to drop on non-refurbs even more.

Apple stock crashed when Steve Jobs died. Microsoft stocks actually went up by 4% when Ballmer announced his retirement
it crashed for other reasons. apple hasnt come out with anything innovative in the last year or two. the iphone is a joke compared to android devices. and their computers are slow and way over priced.

windows 8 was a failure because they tried to do too much at the same time. they revamped the under the hood features of win8 making it super fast and snappy, while trying to make a whole new user interface.) those two things lead to windows 8 being a failure.

but if the average person knew about all those start menu add ons no one would care.

From a hardware standpoint, this is awesome! I'm looking forward to using it with remote desktop to run real programs. Great price point simply for the hardware!
I agree this is a really good price. It's what Microsoft should have launched it at. That being said I'd rather have an android tablet or iPad since you can still remote desktop with those as well. Windows RT doesn't really bring anything special to the table unless you want to run office, but that doesn't matter if you're remote desktopping anyway.
