Microsoft Surface: Black Friday Sale

According to this site, the Surface goes on sale to $200. I looked over the specs, and it seems like a good deal. Buying both the Surface itself, and with a keyboard comes out to about ~$350, which is cheaper than the Surface at full retail price.

Anyone have experience with this tablet? I'd love to get some of your thoughts.

It is a stripped down version of Windows 8.1... it is what it is...

The RT? Don't bother unless you just want to browse the web and live in a doomed app garden.

For a second there I thought you may have meant Surface Pro.

They're shutting down support for Windows RT and getting rid of leftover stock. Save for a Surface Pro, don't make the mistake of getting this.

If they're shutting down support for Windows RT, why did they just release the Surface 2???

They have what? Stopped support for Windows RT? Can you show me a link? If so, then, sure... I've been living under a rock. Honestly, wouldn't make sense to release a new product running an OS they aren't supporting anymore (Surface 2 just came out this month and runs Windows RT).

With this in mind, I think this would be a better purchase in the $350 price range:

Are there any low priced tablets with Haswell processors and full windows?
