    hi, I am new to the site, and indeed new to the Surface RT.. I have bought it for my girlfriend for Xmas, I am just updating it, and am looking to update to 8.1, but I have office installed on the unit as part of the package, if I update to 8.1 on the tablet, will I lose the installation of office ?? the only reason I ask, is when I updated my laptop to 8.1 at work, I lost all my programs that where installed, and as a developer, I had to spend quite some time updated my system again.

    also, as it came with Office, I don't have any install files for it to reinstall even if I wanted to..

    Thanks

    Updating to 8.1RT will also update Office RT which, as you mentioned, came preinstalled with the device.

    great, I've got to be honest, I didn't realise what a great piece of kit the surface is...

    Thanks
