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. [] (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:

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 [], 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 ...

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 [], which is a subdivision of Secondipity [], the latter which has a feedback rating of 16,726 and 99.2% positive feedback.

PayPal says the Seller is Liquidity Services Inc.

Windows RT Youtube Review
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 [] 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 []. 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. []

I am not sure what you mean by "in practice", but I am sure an iPad with 2048x1536 can show a 1080p video while a 1024x768 iPad/anything else can not. So what are you talking about so confidently?
As I've already said elsewhere, it's also about screen orientation. The ipad's screen is not HD.

I'd definitely go with the 64gb + type cover for 272. The whole point of this OS is that it is the cheapest, best way to have MS Office out and about, and that requires a reasonable keyboard. However, keep in mind that this is Microsoft being as evil as they can, excluding Chrome and itunes and all their other competition and then effectively giving the hardware away. So it's a great deal, but it is a deal with the devil
Microsoft isn't excluding itunes and Chrome, Apple and Google aren't publishing their programs to Windows RT. Hate all you want, but direct your anger to the appropriate target.

Will I be able to update to Windows 8.1 on the RT? Or will it only be able to update on the RT 2?

They all say that. Doesn't matter.
All existing Win 8 RT device can be upgraded to 8.1 on 10/18. Win 8.1 is not a breaking change, it is more like Win 8 SP1.

That is not like WP 8 (I hate that my focus can not be upgrade to WP8)...

Purchased it previously. Tested. Returned. Unless you heavily use it in Microsoft office and are intended to use remote desktop, there is no use for it at all.
Born dead tablet.

VLC did that kickstarter to make the Windows 8 app version so that should be out at some point soon.

Why do I need to? My desktop and laptop don't need such things. Go to or

Or, just use the built-in mail application. There are plenty of alternatives. What I don't understand is why apps are suddenly so important when I don't have them on my desktop or laptop. All these apps are essentially web-apps. These aren't required on Windows RT because the browser is full-featured. The need for "apps" is the biggest scam in recent memory regarding devices. A bookmark is now an App. Apps were required on the ipad because the browser was limited. That same limitation doesn't exist in Windows RT.
