    Picked up the $169 eBay return for my wife for Xmas. So far almost 12,000 sold. I'm still holding out for a special on the S2. My wife doesn't need the extras you get with S2 but I want them. If no specials come about I'll be picking up an S2 for my wife to give to me as a combined Xmas/Bday present. But at $169, how can you go wrong.

    I didn't see, but they had touch covers for 39.99 if you buy this surface on ebay. Only if you buy Surface, otherwise it is 79.99. But I didn't buy it when I bought the Surface , and now I can not add it to my purchase

    Considering you get a copy of Office with RT, anything under $200 is a very compelling price.

    Staples will price match Micro Center deal (just show deal on your phone). I had to go to 4 different Staples stores to find some in stock but all were willing to match the price. Ended up getting 2. Won't have to wait till 8 for MC deal.

    Staples Office Store is also offering a Black Friday deal on 32 GB RT w Touch Cover for $249. Same price as Walmart, but probably easier to get in and out. If you go, they also have PNY flash drives... 128 GB for $70.

    in a word, no. just get a dell venue 8 pro or any of the new 8" tablets coming out. they're all going to be faster and lighter, with the same selection of apps.

    I got in on the Microcenter deal. We got there about 6:15 and they opened at 8. Ad said they had a min of 100 but the manager said they had 300 in stock. We were right about #100 do until they handed out the flyers at 7:30 we were sweating it.

    But, I'm happy with our purchase...the Mrs said I can't open it until Christmas though...booooooo!

    I just wanted to comment to say the $199 deal at Best Buy was a huge success. My store alone had to have sold over 100 of them. Sold them out completely, same with our surrounding stores! It was awesome! Not to mention most of them were paired with touch or type covers!

    No it's not. Might I say, "Dude, you're getting a Dell"

    Besides, none of other strikes addressed. Surface is as much a design statement as a gadget anyway. I picked mine up for $350 at MSFT store today with extended warranty, keyboard, case, screen protector and think it's a helluva deal--they had a line still at 7pm so seems like $200 may be magic price to move this thing.

    The Dell is a great deal. Especially if it comes with Office.

    That doesn't mean the Surface isn't a great deal. I bought mine at full price and love it.

    The Surface RT for less than $200 is a great deal as long as you keep in mind that it's 3 times slower than the Surface 2. A little faster than a iPad 2, a little slower than an iPad 3 to give some references. There are already some games at MS store that won't run to well in a Surface RT.
