Computers and electronics retailer Microcenter (not to be confused with Microsoft) is selling first generation SurfaceRTs for only $179.99 with the touch cover included.  This is a great deal, but of course there is a catch.  You cannot order online and will have to physically go to the store to grab one.  Microcenter is promising each store will have at least 100 in stock.  Good luck to those trying to grab one! Check out the $199 deal here from Microsoft Store. You can buy 64GB Surface for $379 here. Shop Microsoft Store’s Hot Black Friday Offers Today. Source: Microcenter ...

With the Surface 2 launch event only a week away, Microsoft is looking to clear old inventory of the SurfaceRT.  A number of great deals have appeared on ebay, and you can get a SurfaceRT 32GB w/ a Touch Cover for only $250 and the same bundle w/ 64GB for $280.  This is not as great as the $200 deal we saw a few weeks back, but still great savings.  Typically a 32GB SurfaceRT bundle w/ Touch Covers costs $399, so this $150 savings, and even greater $220 savings for the 64GB bundle.

Our friend Mary-Jo Foley is reporting the line to buy the Surface is already over 1.5  hours long and shared some photos as proof Picture at TechEd 2013 near the front of the Surface purchasing line Microsoft says they are well stocked in will not run out of Surfaces. I would not look at this deal as Microsoft shedding old inventory in preparation for a Surface refresh in the near future, but more of a “buy this and get ready for Windows 8.1″ Source: Mary-Jo Foley ...
