    Just keep checking the website. You don't have one of those Holiday popup Microsoft stores in your area?

    Also, the 14 day return policy will be up Saturday for those who picked up their Surface on release day. So start checking CraigsList after that for some good deals.

    He might not have enough saved up yet for the touch cover, but probably wants to experience the tablet as soon as possible.

    Well, for me it said to expect a 3 week wait , but my surface is on track to get here tonight, less than 2 weeks from when I ordered. I would say if you don't have a store nearby, go ahead and order because they might get it to you sooner than you think

    if you can't float the extra $100 for the cover you might want to reconsider your priorities. If you are simply set on getting one without the cover that's fine and all but you will have to wait.

    Thanks for the replies! I plan on buying the surface by itself and then buying a red cover later. It looks a lot better than just a plain ol' black cover. Again, thanks for all the replies, I didn't know if I missed something somewhere about them being restocked or not. So now I play the waiting game :D

    Easy for us to say with disposal income. For some, the extra 100.00 may take some time to save up. For some a budget is a budget and the discipline to stick to it is commendable.

    Either way, it's not our place to judge others financial situation and where they spend their money. And it turns out the OP just wanted a red cover anyway. Me? I want to give the type cover a go so I'm going to go try and find one today. I really like the touch cover, but if I can type fast on the touch cover, I should be even faster on the type cover.

    Yeah, I don't think it makes a very good cover either, but better than nothing. I'm still searching for a case, or bag (sleeve, whatever) that I can put the surface in.

    I just ordered a case on Etsy from this store: Handmade iPad iPhone Kindle and Laptop Cases by JiuJiu on Etsy

    They can customize a case for the Surface w/ or w/out space for the touch cover

    I don't know if the website stock levels are accurate or not, but I don't believe it is. People purchasing a Surface RT has been very slow compared to competitors, and instead of pretending they are out of stock, they should be pumping out as many as they can while there is still some initial demand.

    That's what I was wondering. You would think with Microsoft's big hype on the Surface, they would have plenty to go around, but i guess not :P

    There is a very good reason why it shows as out of stock, while I wont go into detail I will say that it should be available again within the next 48 hours or so. The statement is not lying though, it is indeed out of stock.

    Yes the new batches are about to become available. It does take time to make these things, especially when you don't drive your workers to the brink of suicide like Apple does.

    They need to shift the supply from the stores to the online fulfillment center in that case. Going into the stores, they are readily available. My nearest store has had them in stock since release and the number of returns is staggering. While people are still buying, they should do whatever it takes to get it in people's hands. Unless Microsoft wants to have a Lumia 900 situation where they throw millions in advertising and concerts and have about 20 devices per store for a week.

    Google doc's will suffice for 99.9% of all students. Quick Office or even some of the iWork's app's is an adequate substitute for people being productive on the iPad.
