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]

So buy a W7 one. Problem solved. Whatever works. Nobody really cares what you use.

Or buy a W8 one and realize that the only real difference between W7 and W8 is that it take 2 seconds longer to click the desktop button to enter the exact same working environment.

Touch-screen PC (like a Dell XPS) is pretty fantastic.

Of course, you didn't answer the original question. Is the Nexus 4 a train wreck because it is now being sold at $200?

so buy a Windows 8 laptop and install Windows 7?

I still don't understand why Windows 8 is a train wreck.

I only see Metro once a day when I boot up. What's the big deal? I don't know why people are so obsessed with the Start menu.

First, you're combining the Windows 8 Marketplace and the Windows RT Marketplace into one figure (and not quoting a source) despite the fact that Windows 8 apps are not in any way compatible with Windows RT. That's incredibly misleading. Most that growth is surely Windows 8 apps.

Second, if you have 10 apps, and then you have 20, you have 100% growth. That doesn't change the fact that you only have 20 apps. People want to know what apps are available now for RT. If you can provide that info, it would actually be useful. Misleading statements about app marketplace growth are not.
You clearly don't know much about Windows. 95% of the apps in the Windows marketplace are compatible with both Windows 8 and Windows RT, as the modern app API models are designed such that most code is compatible. You are, in a word, wrong when you claim that the Windows 8 apps are not in any way compatible with Windows RT. That statement is simply false. It's legitimate to say that legacy Windows apps are not compatible with RT--the architectural differences of the two OS's prove that--but that doesn't apply to modern apps.

Second, the Windows 8/RT marketplace bounded to 100,000 apps in 250 days. It took the iPad marketplace 453 days to meet the same goal. Whether you like it or not, the Windows 8/RT marketplace IS growing, and it's doing so at a substantially greater clip than the iPad marketplace did, and certainly faster than the Android marketplace has.

They obviously sell at 200$. That is not the point. They are still loosing money on it tho this way.

No company wants to get back a bunch of used products back, and having to re-sell them at half price ( less than half in this case ).

Sure they make some money from apps too, but there is also other costs incurred, that the 284$ the guy quoted previously doesn't include.

Bad business all the way around lol. There's some articles regarding this, but the CEOs departure is the most obvious sign and should need no further clarification.



They moved out of CA while they could.

It's too late for you now.
Certainly, nobody wants a bunch of products back, but the fact of the matter is that everyone gets them, and the more they make and sell, the more they'll get back. Even Apple gets tons of defective iDevices back, which is why they virtually always have cheaper refurbs in stock on their website.

This is not *ideal* business, but it's still *good* business. Bad business would be letting those devices languish unsold in a warehouse or dump them in a landfill somewhere. Putting them in customer hands on the cheap is extremely good business for many reasons, not the least of which is simply that more users=more potential future customers, as many of those people will become invested in the ecosystem.

You're not looking at this in a long term way, and that's your error. Microsoft knows how to play the long game, and historically speaking, they play it better than just about anyone.
