    Hi,
    Does anybody know how to purchase the Surface RT when you live in a country that does not has an MS online shop? I have looked at does import websites, but their price is bizarre (i.e. the 64GB with touch cover costs USD1100,- when converted back).

    Maybe you have friends in countries like US, UK, Germany? They could buy Surface and send it to you

    You also need to consider if various Microsoft services exist in your country- Bing, Xbox live, app store, etc. The tablet would be next to useless if you can't access some key features.

    Indeed, depends which country. MS Germany ships to most of Europe. Not sure if shipping is still free, but I ordered mine from Germany and only paid the price of the device.

    I am living in South Africa. I have tried buying it from the MS Germany site and let it ship to friends in the netherlands, but it detected that my credit card is from outside the EU :( I suppose I have to wait till I am in the US again (Q2 next year).

    Can't you make a deal with your friends, that they buy it for you and you wire them the money?

    Keep in mind though that the German Surface comes with a German keyboard. The only real difference is that the Z and Y are swapped.
