I know folks have returned these to Microsoft and I bet that Staples and Best Buy have had returns as well. Where are the refurbs?
I'm looking for a new tablet that can be useful for some word processing and viewing Microsoft Word documents, and came to a conclusion that a Wndows 8 tablet / hybrid is what I need, because it has full MS Word support. I was looking at the Surface from Microsoft itself, but I also need a 3G-capable device so I can use it anywhere. I don't live in a country that has 4G LTE networks, so that's not important for me.

The PDF spec sheet on surface.com states that the RT version supports microSD and the Pro version supports microSDXC. So, when they say simply microSD, does that mean HC, XC or what?
I'm guessing not as only USB installation would be possible and I'm assuming it won't allow booting from a flash drive. But otherwise, will it be possible to downgrade the OS/expose the startmenu/desktop?
