Microsoft has decided to start offering refurbished variants of its Surface RT tablets on the Microsoft store for $299 with free shipping and free returns in the USA. This means American consumers can pick up the 32GB refurbished Surface RT model for $299 or the 64GB model for $349.

Microsoft claims these tablets are “Microsoft Certified Refurbished” which means:

“When you buy a refurbished Surface tablet, you’re getting a solid piece of Windows-based technology that’s been carefully examined and meticulously refurbished by our expert staff. All returned Surface tablets are tuned up and re-flashed with the latest software versions and apps, so they’re as fresh as the day they were originally built. It includes a one-year limited warranty. Supplies are limited.”

Additionally the refurbished Surface RT tablets come pre-installed with touch-enhanced versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. Microsoft also specifies how much useable storage end users can expect to get:

The 32 GB Surface RT has approximately 15 GB storage available for user content
The 64 GB Surface RT has approximately 44 GB storage available for user content

For $299 it could certainly be worth a punt if you’re getting sick of Android or iOS.

    This little thing cost Microsoft $800 million in lost profits, and, it can be argued, its CEO, Windows 8 RT has bombed as an OS, as well as these RT units,so its no surprise to see big m discounting the returned machines, the surface pro, however, is well reviewed, and is a capable mobile system for full fat windows, being backed by intel hardware, and shows that a tablet OS doesnt need to be a cut down version of a desktop OS, something which the ipad can be accused of, in can be argued that microsoft concentrated on the tablet aspect of windows 8 too much, annoying desktop owners, but the 8.1 and subsequent updates should fix most of those issues, and with the release of direct x 11.2, we should start to see gamers and enthusiats finally make the switch to windows 8, surface rt though, is a joke, you would be better getting a nokia windows phone.

    Translation: “We’ve wiped off the fingerprints & checked to see if it powers up”.
