    Microsoft Store - EDU Portal

    It's right on the top part of the page...once you do that (and check the box stating you are a student, teacher, adminstrator, etc.), it will let you go to specific products to see pricing.

    Hey...the red keyboard is on there now...
    And last questions: Do I enter the school I graduated FROM or the school I'm going TO next year? And I don't see the discounted items. They're all the same prices they normally are.

    I don't think it matters...I'm using my son's school in case they need a school email.

    Once you enter the state and school, just click on "start shopping." It brought me to a page where everything is marked down 10%.

    That's one of the mysteries of the universe. On a side note, if you don't live in a town that has a Microsoft store, I recommend moving :)

    I have a MS Store nearby and intend to go first thing in the morning on June 6th. Just curious if the demo models will have Photoshop installed on it. I want to use an art program that is geared toward artist and not have to rely on OneNote to determine what the pen can and can't do. I don't think Fresh Paint is all that good.

    I'm an expert at using Photoshop, but if you just want to draw or paint, Fresh Paint is awesome. I love that app. And I doubt they will have photoshop running, because adobe is still working on that touch friendly version. What we saw was beta, and adobe is usually very slow about releasing software.

    I told my dad about the the SP3 models, and he's intrigued by the i7. Maybe I'll get that model after all.

    Will be in Chicago on Friday. Hope they have them at the Microsoft "area" in the shopping center on Michigan Avenue. I can't believe they don't have a full store there.

    The closet Microsoft Store is in Louisville, KY. I hope BestBuy will have it on display like they've done in the past. I will like to check it out before making a purchase

    Honestly, I already have this preordered but I'm really excited to go play with it in the store. I've only been hearing good things, besides the complaint about "lapability". Pretty sure 95% of people use their laptops on tables or a flat surface though :/

    I believe Best Buys with Microsoft stores will have it out by June 6th. The regular ones won't until release date.

    Actually Microsoft Stores are not inside Best Buy. The ones inside Best Buy are called 'Windows Stores".

    I hope this isn't the case! I work right next door to a Best Buy on Friday, and I wanted to walk in before work and play around with it. But it doesn't have a Windows Specialty Store :-(

    When I hit the store this Friday, and if the Pen does what I want it to do, I will place my pre-order for the i5 / 256gb version. Is Student discount only for Online orders?

    My local best buy has removed about half of the surface products from the display area. Obviously they're making room for Surface Pro 3. The Pro 3 isn't actually up and running yet though.

    I have a love hate relationship with best buy. I love the fact that they actually push the suface. At least in the few I was in, I've heard the employees say good things. But yet, I rarely even see windows phones. BB needs to get their act together.

    That's just about every store here. No one pushes a windows phone cause nobody knows about it.

    Yeah, but you think a big chain like best buy who has windows stores inside them would carry windows phones.

    They had two models at the Chicago Microsoft mini store...wow...no doubt now, I'm getting one. Screen is incredible. Very responsive. Pen was better than I expected. Loved the red type cover (phew).

    I was surprised how light the tablet is and how much weight the keyboard adds...not significant, just that the Surface is SO light. So wanted to just walk off with it....

    I would really love if Microsoft opens one store in Croatia. I know there is no chance for that but it would be great.
