    Mine was seriously delayed and is just now shipping out of Garland, TX (Dallas). A bit disappointed in that since I got one of the first ones on the deal. Labor Day weekend seriously fubared the logistics.
    That blows, man. Thank you for letting us know about the deal. MSFT should know about the service you did in helping them get these things off the market as quickly as we did.

    Both of mine have shipped (Although, one isn't mine, someone in IL got theirs today). I still don't have a tracking number for my second one, but if the first one is any indication, I should get it tomorrow.

    well yeah shipped today, but you ordered it last week. When did you get the tracking? These should have shipped yesterday and been here today.

    ok, I got my tracking last Friday hence the disappointment that it took them this long to ship.

    Anyone know where to buy a cheap 64 gig micro or do I have to buy a 32?

    Amazon is the cheapest place I've found them, but you have to watch for their SanDisk sales.

    I got both of mine today; one shipped yesterday, the other on Tuesday from Ohio to Virginia. I don't know why everyone is saying their keyboard was shipped seperately, mine was in the surface box. The shipping box did say 1 of 2 though, I don't know why that is, I didn't get 2 of 2.

    How lovely would it be to get a second surface due to a processing error a few days from now?

    Gotta say, I love this device but the amount of storage you ACTUALLY get with the device is dreadful. A micro SD quickly becomes necessity.

    not really. Unless you load a rare game that consumes a gig of space or something it has plenty of room. Supposedly 8.1 is going to free up about 4Gb as they are cutting a bunch of fat with it.

    got these in, thought the trouble they went to put Refurbished stickers all over them was a little excessive. These look basically brand new (and probably are)

    It'd be nice if they'd cut desktop mode.

    I agree, and hopefully by Windows 9.

    One thing they could do right now is create a central app store and stop maintaining separate copies of apps for each user profile. Not sure why two profiles would want different versions of the same app.

    Received mine last night along with a type cover. These look brand new although you do have the refurbished stickers. Hard to do a lot of testing as multiple hours were needed for updates....loooooots of updates.

    Not going to try 8.1 as it is supposed to be out in a little over a week. Apps are limited, was sad to learn that apps purchased on WP8 need to be repurchased again, and WP8 apps won't work on this device (all iphone apps work on ipad) Shame on microsoft, this should be built in. Especially when the native resolution is basically the same, just one in a horizontal vs vertical aspect ratio... Also, there is no familiar connection of any kind between the WP8 and Win 8 RT....why not, this is basic stuff here. Why is Angry Birds star wars $.99 on WP8 and $3.49 on RT? The only difference would be the initial start screen aspect ratio....wtf Lumia 1020/Surface RT, one is vertically oriented, the other is horizontal...damn near same resolution.

    Other than these misgivings, the device is pretty neat functionally, other than using it as a LAPtop with a keyboard (you cannot do this) you can act as a tabletop device very well.

    this is all research you should have done before buying.

    WP8 apps are written for WP8 and W8 store apps are written for W8. There is no concept of buying the same app once and run on different form factors. That is because the apps are written with different languages/APIs for the different platforms.
