At this time, it looks like the add-on of the touch cover for the discounted price has been removed.

@morriea: perhaps it is a caching thing, but on my iPad the add-on cover prices are currently showing at the prices you posted at the top.

@bluemaple: They're back. I have a note at the top of my eBay page saying: "The listing below has been updated by the seller, but you can see the item you purchased." so it is not a cache issue. There are changes made throughout the life of the listing.

So they have made changes. Even the price has changed. The seller is definitely monitoring the listing. I decided to grab one for my niece in college. This is a great item for doing papers, research, etc.

Windows RT? Boo... It won't run Microsoft Publisher. Or Microsoft Bob.

I would recommend reviewing this dealer's feedback before making an informed decision to purchase.

@bowlingb: would that not be true of all eBay sellers?
This one is Top Rated Plus.

@bowlingb: since this seller/deal or similar is frequently posted on Deals and consistently upvoted, it seems there would be some very vocal negative comments here if Deals buyers had bad experiences.

In any case, wouldn't eBay's "hassle free returns" and/or "money back guarantee" protect you?

@isayx3: Not seeing that. Only Encore I see is $330 and the Venues say they come with android. Also, what coupon?

@grexican: ah..looks like the deal is over

I picked up one from staples, but I saw a couple of $199 deals. I'd hold out on one of these full windows 8 tablets instead of an RT

@isayx3: while there are benefits to full Windows 8.1, *if writing, spreadsheet work and Internet browsing are important, an 8 inch class display does not match an 11 inch class display. *

I would yawn at this Surface if it were 8 inch. That 11 inch (ok 10.6) size is what makes MS Office usable at such a reasonable price.

@bluemaple: I have a surface pro and love it. The 8" is more for movies / smartglass / hearthstone..it is just a little more portable. The encore also has HDMI out if you want to hook up to a bigger monitor.

@isayx3: the Surface Pro is nice if you pay $399 or so. But the basic Surface is a great value for a lot of Windows & included Office functionality for $179-199.
