|ilovetofu||I wonder if you can trade in your refurbished RTs to Best Buy and get credit toward the new version: http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-57607097-75/best-buy-will-give-you-up-to-$350-for-your-surface-tablet/|

Wow... the Touch Cover 2 is pretty impressive... and backward compatible with Surface RT 1st gen (watch the video).

If you think about it. they shouldn't try to sell it at such a huge margin. as they own the app store also.
Google is huge and they sell the Nexus at pretty low price and hope to gain the $$ back through it's app store and increase in user base.
That should be the path Microsoft should be taking. to build it's userbase up. and so it coaxes developers to make win8 metro apps.
but instead it tries to do an Apple thing by charging high preiumum for it's device. Problem is that the Surface is not "cool" (despite all those young hispter type kids dancing crappy commercial) and not the "in" thing that people buy and it's not a fashion statement like apple products.
With the jail break and ported APPS I pretty much got all the apps I need to be productive.
I'm going to wait for the Surface 2 + power type cover to come out. also to see reviews and make sure the jail break works before buying.
Hopefully someone will buy my TF700.

The new Surface 2 looks nice, but at $449, it should include the touch or type cover... just can't compete at that price without it, in my opinion anyway.
Pretty cool that the touch cover is now back-lit though!

wonder if m$ will firesale the remaining stock of the surface RT like $200? or hopefully less.
At that price point, I'm interested in trying it..

I have two issues that are a little annoying.
No silver light or across the board flash. I felt like I was in the walled garden of a certain fruit company getting directed to download pages that mean nothing.
No local Dropbox sync. A bit shortsighted to have Sky Drive as the only local cloud sync in a world where many businesses share files on Dropbox. I think Box can be mapped as a network drive which is cool, but you have their limitations plus you need a network connection.
I like the Surface 2 specs, but I'm not touching it unless those issues are addressed or they have another refurb fire sale like this.

I just sold mine for $325 with some accessories.
I still have the touch cover left if anyone is interested PM me.
anyway. I can't wait till the 2nd generation gets a price drop. as it address some of my wants in it:
- better battery life
- 1080p screen
- battery cover
- windows 8.1
- and eventually it will run Windows phone apps
I'm put my Transformer TF700 on criagslist now.
Thanks SD for opening my eyes to Windows 8. I heard alot of negatives for windows 8 interface and RT but now that I've used it and see the ins and outs of it I"m no longer one of those lemmings that bad mouth something without even trying it.

Then an university student showed interest in the ad on wednesday. I said the lowest price will be $300 and she agreed for it. I sold The Tablet to her on thursday.
So I made $116 profit and yes I got a "nice story for you , Bro"
