Stopped by my local BestBuy today and saw they had a factory refurb Surface Pro 128 on sale (promising complete factory refresh and zero damage in a new sealed box) for only $699. I don't know how you feel about factory refurbs. In some cases they can be better than new since the factory has given them a full quality check, especially of there are no physical defects, but $300 off sticker is pretty compelling. Don't know if this was a one off, one store only deal but you might want to check your local stores and see if these are starting to slip into the pipeline. You have 14 days to return it if there is a problem. Just a heads up.
