    I think you'll find the one for $873.73 is in fact a surface pro, the surface RT is $529 for the 32GB version

    Staples, it appears has recently started selling the surface in stores. This just happened in the last few weeks, apparently. So far, I think they are the only retailer besides MS to carry it in store.
    In case anyone is interested - Staples and Best Buy, here in the US, along side of the Microsoft stores have been selling the Surface RT since before Christmas. Two weeks before Christmas - no Surface - one week before Christmas - Surface! They realized their mistake a little too late but better late than never; I suppose.

    I might be dumb, but I am NOT stupid!

    The Surface is low tech as far as computers are concerned, but it fills a special niche.

    For that money ($500+) I can build a full blown, high spec desk top or purchase a high spec lap top.

    I may be old (84), but I can still recognize a "Pig in a Poke".

    If you even know what that means!
