$499 Microsoft Surface now back in stock at Microsoft's U.S. online store
Outside of the U.S., demand is just as strong for the Microsoft Surface. For example, in the U.K., only the 64GB model with the black Type Cover is available. In Australia, Germany, France and Canada, the 32GB model without the Touch Cover, equivalent to the $499 model in the U.S., is sold out. Considering that this is the lowest priced option for the Microsoft Surface at Microsoft's online store, we wonder if this is a referendum on the Touch and Type Covers or if it just a matter of buyers trying to save some money for the holiday shopping season.

Waiting for the pro version. But as we don't even have the regular version here yet I guess it will be a long wait. :-(

Surface RT as well as PRO are amazing tablets with a functionality span that no other OS or tablet can match at the moment...its Windows after all

This is good for Microsoft first tablet and the apps will come because thousands of Developers at the windows 8 build conference were given free surface RT's to use to properly write the Apps to be used on this tablet computer. there some bugs and performance issues reported but the deal is they will be quickly corrected. folks remember the Microsoft RT Tablets OS only runs the apps that in the store on it's start screen.The Windows 8 Tablet computers , laptop and desktop computers not only run the Apps from their start screen store but can also run Windows 7, Vista, XP, windows 2000, windows NT programs .The Windows 8 devices Run more programs then the Windows RT devices can
