    Idiots told me over phone i can come into the store and pre order since the site didnt accept giftcards.

    I come in and say i cant, its online only..im like WTF! They gave me a voucher for my trouble to reserve one for me on release day, doubt it even matters, i find it hard to beleive it will sell out. Lookings for a 32gb model with red keyboard

    32GB w/Cyan Touch Cover & the Type Cover. Also threw in a spare magnetic charger so I have one for home and one for my bag. I can add a 32GB micro-Sd for a lot less than $100. Sure, it slower, but how fast does music have to play.

    I am shocked that you cannot get a 64GB Surface with any color but black. That is the dumbest thing ever. I really want Cyan, but have to pay for two covers if I want it? Why doesn't it come bundled with different colors? :mad:
    I am with you on this. I also wanted 64GB with cyan but no option to get what I want stupid.:@

    Went for the 32GB with a Cyan Touch Cover. Thinking I'll pick up the HD cord at a later date.

    The money I saved on the 32gb will go towards a 64gb microsdxc card for $60.

    This is what I would do too. Sure, you cant install apps on the SD card, but just have the apps on the built in memory and everything else on the card. Better than getting 64gb surface with a forced black cover (if you want a colored one)

    Question for you guys. With the 32b without the cover already being sold out online with a wait. Do you think they've held some aside for sale on launch at the stores and popup stores? Thanks.

    Absolutely. Especially because the primary purpose the popup stores is to sell the Surface (and Win 8 in general). They probably allocated a set number of devices for mail delivery (maybe 100k of each version), with the rest allocated for stores and the other 7 launch countries. There may be sporadic shortages at the stores between now and New Years, but unless Surface is an overwhelming success, you should be able to find one.

    So the question is... where are the pop-up stores?

    Here is a link a search link from Microsoft Store that includes all stores, including the pop-ups.

    Microsoft Store Locations - Store Lookup

    Note: you'll have to do a zip code search to find the pop-ups.

    There's a pop-up about 5 minutes from me. I want the 32gb with the teal touch cover. Obviously missed that boat online unless I want to wait. So hoping I'll still be able to get them on launch at the pop-up store.

    ...I also called Microsoft and found out that the 32GB without Black touch cover really does include the black touch cover. I was told that I will receive both the black cover with the tablet and the cyan one that I ordered...
    I took a look today and they changed the "In the box" section to include this wording:

    Black Touch Cover (not included with 32 GB without Black Touch Cover)

    Pre-ordered the 32GB with a white touch cover. I'm sure at some point I'll pick up an equivalent sized micro-SD card just to boost it, but for now I'm doubling what I had on my Galaxy tab :)

    Ok, I noticed the 32gb without a cover is backordered a few weeks, but the 32gb with cover is is still available for the 26th. Apparently people want to choose their keyboard color so instead is sitting on those 32gb tablets, why not offer them and increase your sales and exposure? The keyboard are sold separate including the black so in reality the 32gb is not sold out, just the Price is sold out, lol.

    Probably they are sold as sku's and can't be broken up. The sku for the 32 naked is sold out - they can't very well open a box and remove the keyboard and sell it as a naked device.

    It's like going to Best Buy and buying a new Xbox and saying "Remove the bundled controller and replace it with a different color".

    I was going to hold out and visit a pop-up store, but I suspect there will be limited quanities there. Thus, I just placed my order for the 32GB with cover. 10/26 can't come fast enough!

    As hard as it was I cancelled my order. I want the 64gb version with a cyan color but im not spending $219 on covers, which is what I'll spend if i go that route. What do I want with 2 covers, especially one that I'll never use. Personally, I think it's bad marketing. Thanks to this forum, im actually considering the Acer W700 Pro, with i5 and 64GB, dock and Bluetooth keyboard.

    I don't get the whole color thing. If I did, I'd order a naked 32 and get a cyan or whatever colour later. The device is what is important to me - I'll accessorize somewhere down the line.

    I'm with you on this, crystal. I do understand personal aesthetics, but to me it's not that big of a deal. Personally, walking about with a big bright colored tablet is not my thing.
