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]

Not just this tablet rt but windows8 in general. The release of windows 8 is successful that microsoft has fired both its designer and ceo. Stockholders celebrated their departed. Wtf?

Personally I don't think Win 8 is too bad.

I found my Win 8 load much after than Win 7, and some of the functions are quite interesting (although not all of them are useful).

I admit the first 2 weeks using it were really frustrating, but once I got used to all the navigations it is actually very good. I don't understand why all my friends hates it.

I haven't used Win RT deeply, heard that it's bad.

MS should have released the Surface RT at this price point to begin with to get at least some sales.

This is a great point and I agree. The problem everybody complains about in Windows 8 is change. People don't like change. In fact, most people DESPISE change. I too hated it for the first couple weeks but as you said its faster and more stable than 7. The new start menu just forced me to stop reaching for my mouse, which actually makes me work faster especially when coding Wink

I bought one and I don't know why. I'll probably use it for a few days and then sell it on craigslist for $250.

Man, I just bought a refurb Yoga 11 with RT for $294 (bigger battery, far superior keyboard, same guts)... now debating whether or not to return it and get this for $200.

How terrible is the Surface RT to use on your lap like a laptop?

lol at the person who doesn't know a decent operating system when he sees one LMAO
Android is a great OS...for a phone. For a tablet, it is pretty meh. IOS is also pretty meh as far as tablets go. If all you do is surf/consume content on your tablet, then both IOS and Android work well enough, but tablets inherently have so much more potential due to their form factor and the ability to use with slim keyboard case covers.

Google pretty much abandoned the tablet experience with Android and haven't offered anything innovative to Android that is tablet specific. Both OSes continue to treat their users like lemmings and that's well and good but neither can come remotely close to replacing a laptop for more general computing / productivity tasks.

MS should at least be applauded for going after that market and as much as I'm an Android fan when it comes to phones, I am looking forward to MS nailing the productivity tablet market with Surface RT/Pro. Android and IOS aren't even trying to compete, and as long as they don't, they aren't going to see any more money from me. My iPad 2 works well enough as a tablet for consuming content. I'd only ever spend on a tablet at this point if it enabled me to replace my laptop for 90% of my tasks. Hopefully Surface Pro + Haswell lives up to its promise.

So anyone know about this manufacturer_certified seller with ONLY 475 feedback?

And Refurbished item is hit and miss.

And how do we know if manufacturer_certified did a good job of refurbishing the item? I have received quite a few refurbished item that has problem at the time of delivery .And also some starting to have problem after few months of use. I don't really trust refurbished item especially high tech electronic one. They are not going to spend a lot of money to retest the item during their "refurbish" process.

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.
Now that's some quality trolling. +rep
