Most likely it is new... but the box will say refurbished.... and there was a sticker behind the tablet that said refurbished.... When I got mine the battery cycle count was 2. So I think it was practically new maybe used once and returned.
I was wondering, what does battery cycle count 2 mean? TIA.
I'm a computer science major and I use a tf-600t (ASUS RT) as my away from home computer. For educational purposes, RT products work quite well as they have exceptional battery life (in my case 16 hours) and portability. All RT products fall short with application diversity and the use of the desktop for things other than office. Overall, I would suggest the Surface RT or any RT product to those in college as a note-taking/study tool.
Care to elaborate on why in your opinion it's useless?
People who declare RT as useless typically haven't used it, and/or simply don't understand it. In their defense, the concept is a little tough to grasp, and I'm not sure I've ever seen a more horribly marketed product. Microsoft failed in that respect.
However, most people who use/understand it agree that it is far from useless. You just have to understand its limitations. It is actually quite powerful for the segment of the tablet market for which it's intended... it can do things iOS/Android devices can't.
The RT haters often point to the relatively pathetic selection in the MS app store. But anyone focusing on those limitations doesn't get the larger picture.
whats the consensus on the black Friday deal? Did most people get them on a timely basis? any issues? I can't find the old thread..
Great deal for 200 bucks - price matched best buy add at staples - for basic browsing and emails - its great - don't know about anything else - if possible wait a while - I remember refurbished 32 GB at 179 on Ebay a while back and believe that the 200 deal or less will come back again. Would pass on this deal.
