thanks for making me feel better... lol
Glad you were able to get one, hopefully they put it back up. At the moment that $200 difference was the only reason I was going to be able to get one. Christmas is coming up and I have to get a Surface 3, with a keyboard, and a Tab S2 8 inch.
Well, think about it - they can just make those from the components of the other units, so it's not a great mystery that they ended up offering them. I almost wonder if it was a situation where they had a supply of GPU keyboards and a supply of that configuration of clipboard screens, so just decided to make a limited supply of them. Maybe even as a little test to see how it sold.
