When the Surface RT launched, the most exciting hardware feature was the Touch Cover, a slick cover-keyboard hybrid. However, it cost an extra $120, which is a lot for a practically obligatory feature. Microsoft's online store is now giving them away with a Surface RT purchase, which is the way it always should have been.
The Surface RT—which, unlike the Surface Pro, doesn't run a full version of Windows 8—is a very handsome tablet. Sure, there are issues, but for the most part it's a premium device with the chamfered edges to back it up. I've been looking for Surface sales since they came out, but they're far and few between.
