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 hope you have real computer, or plan on using the computer lab. writing up papers on case studies etc and signing into online libraries/journals will be a pain in the ass with either the rt or ipad
Yeah, I have a MBA and a netbook. Just wanted a cheap tablet, and this has Office, which is a big plus.

Unsupported? Do you realize that the Windows 8/RT marketplace is growing at TWICE the rate of the iPad store? These only seem to be off to a slow start because they started 2 years later. Those of us who adopted the iPad early on remember how empty the app store was of native iPad apps, and how utterly HORRIBLE the upscaled iPhone apps looked and worked on the device.

Rome was not built in a day. Neither was any app ecosystem ever deployed.
First, you're combining the Windows 8 Marketplace and the Windows RT Marketplace into one figure (and not quoting a source) despite the fact that Windows 8 apps are not in any way compatible with Windows RT. That's incredibly misleading. Most that growth is surely Windows 8 apps.

Second, if you have 10 apps, and then you have 20, you have 100% growth. That doesn't change the fact that you only have 20 apps. People want to know what apps are available now for RT. If you can provide that info, it would actually be useful. Misleading statements about app marketplace growth are not.

Should I get this? I'm a college student looking for something thin and light (touch screen preferred) for when I'm on campus. I'd be using it for basic document editing, watching videos, and web browsing. I already have a high end gaming desktop at the house, so I'm just wanting something much cheaper for on the go for basic things.
I think this is great to bring to classes. If you are on a budget, perfect especially considering it includes Office. Man I wish this technology existed when I attended college. My laptop at the time barely lasted 60 minutes on battery so always had to sit next to outlet in class.

1. What the better deal? The 64GB or 32GB w/touch cover? I ordered the 64GB when the 32 went out of stock, but now its come back and I really like the free touch cover... I don't know if I can switch it up.

2. The 64GB version says "Office Home and Student 2013 RT Preview" and the 32GB version says "Office Home and Student 2013 RT." Is there a difference between the two versions?

So, Ibought one... don't know why. Apparently I had $200 just sitting around waiting to spend on something I am sure I'll never use. But, hey - I have an Android phone, and Ipad and now a Surface Tablet. Why not?

It was listed on the eBay front page as the deal of the deal. Their user base is much larger than SD. So I wouldn't say it's because of us.
That's right too but I still think majority of traffic goes there through SD cause of the frontpage status.

No difference the preview was just what it was called when it came out because Office 13 wasn't out yet.

This will be perfectly fine for work you mentioned. The only thing missing is the ecosystem - it does not have as many apps as iPad, but that should not be an issue if you are not much into gaming/fart apps!. Most social apps are there. It has MS office and browser, so most of your college work should be taken care of. I see no issues - unless somebody points out something big missing.
I've never cared about apps. Even on my Galaxy S4, I only have a handful of downloaded apps from the Play Store. I just want functionality, something for basic tasks, and great battery life. I ended up buying the Surface RT, so hopefully this will suit my needs. Smilie
