I have both the RT and the regular surface...I have to say for most things, me and the hubby prefer the RT.
It's thinner, so easier to use as a tablet. It has office, which the regular surface doesn't (not installed out of the box anywas...mind you, we haven't used it yet!).
They're both fast, we can watch movies on both. We can use these tablets as a computer- it has a mini displayport to connect a monitor to, the keyboard is nice, a USB port to connect a usb key or mouse to, and the little stand attached int he back to have it stand upright are awesome.
After 2 weeks of having these, we haven't used our ipad, which will be going on craigslist shortly. To those who say Microsoft blew it with these, I say you haven't actually used one. There are so many things I don't want to go without now.
PLUS, having everything sync automatically to our desktop pc without having to install bloated itunes, A+++.
In all fairness, the only downside is the battery- we get about 5 hours using it extensively. The ipad was longer. But the hardware is this is closer to a laptop than to a tablet, so it's worth dealing with.
EDIT to add: RT is a scaled down version of windows, supposedly. It still has the "desktop"...I know there was one thing I noticed it didn't have, but can't even remember what it was. Perhaps ability to VPN to work. Battery life is better than that one, so I prefer it.

|Sim-X||Let's take an OS that already sucks & make it worse by not being able to run anything designed for windows. I wouldn't buy this POS for $50.|

|cybernevets||I was able to get this deal at a suburban Philly Staples. The senior person at the tech center honored the $399 price for the RT 32GB (the removed yellow/red shelf tag said $399 through June 8th) and had to override the $499 price that was coming up on the register. The deal also included a free keyboard. I was able to get the last Type keyboard that they had in stock. Overall a solid deal, but I would not be surprised if the 32GB RT is $249 to $299 by the fall. My atom based Asus VivoTab Smart is quite a bit faster, but the design of the tablet, kickstand and keyboard combo for the Surface adds real value for my uses. I'm going to return the Asus.|

Ehhh... I want to like it but I can't.
$400 for a windows RT tablet that's not even 1080p? Might as well save your money.

|Kazenokatana||Even this seems high priced, you could get the Lenovo Lynx and keyboard for about 400$ Same price more storage and Windows8.|

Went to my local Staples on Sunday and they had removed the sale price tag of $399 even though the tag said the price was valid through 6/8. Played dumb when I asked about the sale price.
Tried another Staples closer to my office this morning and they did have the sale tag still on the shelf. At checkout manager had to override the regular price to get the $399 price, and was surprised it was on sale with the free keyboard deal going on. Had about $200 of rewards to spend, and used a $5 of $25 check-in coupon so was out the door for $196

|ironstatic||At my local Staples, the 32gb price is back up to 499. A bit of a shell game. 399 w/o a cover or 499 w/ a cover.|

I spoke with the head of the tech support group (forget their name) at my local Staples on Friday. He confirmed that the $399 price in store will be honored until 6/8, as will their out-of-stock promise to order one and price match. Additionally he confirmed that as of now (Sunday 6/2), Staples is promoting the free keyboard deal as well as the reduced price. I have reserved one from the website and plan to pick it up this morning. Will confirm at that time.. YMMV, this guy was fully aware of Microsofts offer within hours of its announcement.
Edit: He also clarified this is for the 32GB only.

|Kazenokatana||While this is a good price, these were too expensive to begin with. Windows 8 Tablets are coming down a lot (The Lynx was 300$ at Staples) And that's making RT seem a LOT worse in comparison. They should have priced these around 200-300$ instead of trying to beat the Ipad, which has been on the market for years.|

Coming from a XPS 10 owner, I still think this is a bit overpriced. As someone previous said, you can from atom based tablets for around this price now. Windows RT is decent if you know its capabilities, but not at this price.
I considered my refurb XPS 10 + keyboard dock a good price since I got it for $230, but these tablets should have been priced at around $300 from the beginning just to get a better market share and based on what the OS offers.

|wangcho78||I've seen some reviews and many of them did not give good review for RT. However, they did give much better review for PRO version. Go to youtube and see some reviews.|
