on sale at MS store. No touch cover.

Is it better than galaxy tab or the new kindle fires? or even the new ipad?

The first line of Surface products were mediocre. I honestly doubt even the Surface 2 is worth it, though the Pro 2 may be good.

My cousin really likes his surface. I'd personally be interested at $199, and would likely pick one up were I in the market, but it may not be the best of deals objectively.

Surface RT is great if you don't mind the lack of compatibility with desktop apps (It uses an Arm cpu instead of x86).

Hah. Windows RT is great if you've ever thought to yourself "Windows 8 is nice and all but I wish they would get rid of all the stuff that makes it better then iOS."

My answer is no on the Surface. Its a great piece of hardware but the software is garbage. I would rather have a dinky plastic Android tablet, which I do.

Now if the regular surface had a full stable Windows 8 running on it that would be a completely different story. Its just RT that sucks.

I'd say just get a nexus 7 or kindle. OG Surface lagged pretty bad on that tegra 3 and there's still essentially no apps so you're pretty much left with a bulky internet explorer machine with subpar battery life.
