    Still, sweet deal though as I have the MS complete warranty and I want to upgrade. I'd much rather exchange it and pay the diff rather than deal with selling it.

    OK, I just called and got some good info. As far as they know there is no surface trade in program so far. BUT they have a general trade in program anyways. So you can take your surface in and have it evaluated/appraised on value. Then if you like the amount, you get it on a giftcard. Which then can be put towards the new surface. This goes for any surface, whether pro or RT. So that's good. I think they also factor into the value on if device is wiped or not. If they have to go in and erase stuff to free storage, u might get less.

    Other good news is in Ipad trade in program. As all the news on it shows ipad2 and up. So even if your Ipad 1st generation doesn't fall under that, you can still trade it in under the regualr trade in program they have. Where they will evaluate its worth. With cosmetic quality of device factoring in big.
    She said it'd be better under regular trade in program because the Ipad deal gift cards expire or have to be used by end of October. At least that's what they said. Under regular trade in program, u can use it whenever.

    Glad I called. So we have options either way.

    Stop tempting me into an upgrade, I really can't afford it!

    The thing that annoys me is I was always planning to get a new computer for Christmas this year. But then I thought nah, can't wait now the Surface Pro is out so went and got one...

    Maybe I should have stuck to my original plan

    I just purchased it...too good of a deal to pass up. I could still get Asus down the road and sell this RT for a small profit later. But I'm pretty sure my woman going to love it. Then we can share my type cover also.

    They were running low...these things been selling like crazy since last night. The thing that sold me it being 64gb. A helluva deal.

    Anyone else that wants one better hurry...they almost sold out.

    Good to hear the Surfaces are selling well now. Is it the RT's that are selling well or the Pros? Or both?

    Wanna buy one for me too? :P

    I purchased an SP1 with 128GB in May of this year. It is in mint condition with a screen cover and never had any problems with it. I brought it to the same MS store I purchased it in Connecticut and asked what credit could I get if I purchase the SP2. The staff behind the counter went to a website (I failed to see what the url was) and told me I could get $237 of credit for it. I told him "honestly, do you really believe that this unit is worth only $237, even if I buy the new SP2 when it comes out". His reply was that that the website is what determines the trade in cost and he could not negotiate a better deal. I am posting this to see if and what others are getting for trade-in values because I can't believe a 5 month old $999 SP1 128GB is only worth $237!?!? I would be curious what others have to say.

    Its the surface RT selling on.eBay like crazy. I'm sure buy now surface RT sales in total are now surpassing the pro versions. These devices still come with 1 year warranty. Too good of a deal to pass up.

    Chris, we need you to release your new case already. How close are you to finalizing/releasing?

    No way! I will not take a loss like that on my pro that's still not even a month old...that's crazy prices. A pawn shop will likely pay more than.that. a shame at that price.

    Waiting for MS Surface 2 announcement on the 23rd about the new kickstand angles and to confirm the dimensions of the Surface 2. Once that comes around, will announce the next steps

    This couldn't be further from the truth
    And I can say this based on my own personal experience
