Nice enough hardware, but I hate Win8. It's fine on a proper PC where the touch screen UI can be easily disabled, but on a tablet where you have to use it it's just plain awful. Gimme Android or iOS any day.

I didn't like it at first. But now that I'm used to the gestures, Android and iOS feel clunky by comparison.

To each their own of course; it's a damn good thing we're not all the same. Personally I tried my best to like it, but just couldn't.

After using the RT for an extended period of time over the past few days, one of the things that I appreciate about it is the use of a mouse pointer when the keyboard is attached.

I have a Logitech Ultrathin keyboard cover for my iPad and while it works beautifully, the lack of the trackpad/mouse tarnishes the experience... especially in contrast to the multitouch trackpad on the RT's touchcover.

Just read on bfads.net that both Walmart and Best Buy will have the 32GB Surface RT on Black Friday for $199. (Cover not included)

I agree, iOS could be more versatile with mouse/cursor/trackpad support. But Apple seems to value a clear distinction between 'laptop' (no touch screen) and tablets (all touch screen), for some reason.

Which seems stupid to me. I would love a penabled tablet with intel guts running OSX. There is a company that converts MBPs but it doubles the price.

That is why despite the imperfections I prefer Windows 8/RT. It supports a huge variety of devices to fit specific needs.
