Man... I just ordered mine online on Monday and UPS said they deliverd my Surface when in actuality it wasn't delivered to my house.. They said it was left at the front door, even tho I was home at the time they said it was delivered and when I looked outside there was nothing...
I'm still waiting for an answer on where my surface is.. I'm not happy.

My guess is that it didn't get delivered to my address, my dog goes a-wall when anyone comes near the door and there was not a peep from her all day.

Hope you track it down so you have something to play with this weekend.

This is only for outside of the USA for the time being though. Otherwise we'll have to wait until January to see Surface RTs being sold at Best Buy and such. What a shame, they're going to miss out so many sales during the holiday season.

I just went to a local BestBuy and I have to say it worries me. I was once again looking for a Clover Trail tablet to tale a look at the performance, and saw a lady talking to a sales person about buying a tablet. The lady was apparently very interested in ASUS Vivo Tab RT, but the sales person kept persuading her into buying an Android tablet. She already said she doesn't use many apps, and doesn't play games, yet he kept telling her Windows RT doesn't have this app nor that app. He didn't mention RT includes Office until I said it next to her. I talked to another sales person asking about the Atom tablet (since in my previous experience they have no idea what Clover Trail is), and his answer was, Atom is slow, and any of those Android tablets will run faster than any Atom tablet. Given that is the general attitude of sales associates at BestBuy, I really worry what will happen to Surface once it gets there. Oh, BTW, that store managed to get three Windows 8 machines showing "Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC".

It is so evident that the OEM's are trying to push out their older laptops (with or without 8) during the holiday season before the new hardware designed for 8 comes out. I was at the Win8 launch in NY and played with devices from every manufacturer and so many of them are great. Instead we see the same crap right now being pushed except for a few outliers.

They are going to Australia first. I expect some major European retailers will pick it up soon too. If they can get this done before Christmas there will probably be a surge of sales just before the end of the year. Lots of pent up demand abroad I hear. Also I think the December update is going to throw in some international support that was a little weak.

Anyways, I'm loving my Surface, typing on the touch pad right now. Can't wait for my 64GB microSDXC to come in the mail tomorrow now!! Hopefully this time UPS doesn't screw up the delivery!

Like I said, I can only hope, but I don't care if they do or don't. I'm loving my surface and really can't think of anything I'd need for it anyways...

Update: I called MS to follow-up on the trace, they apologized and asked if I needed anything else. I inquired about the Microsoft Complete for Surface warranty ($99), the person on the phone explained it to me and asked if I wanted to order it. I said sure (I have a 2 year old toddler and clumsy wife), she put me on hold and when she came back online she said she got approval from the supervisor to offer me the MS Complete extended warranty for $50 for the mishap.
That's awesome. I wasn't expecting a thing but this is just great! Kudos to MS for their customer service on this.
Sure its nothing huge, but it saved me $50. Had I not asked about adding the Complete I don't think they would've offered me anything.. but I'm glad I did.
