Talking to Anthony Nneke from Microsoft tells me that the email is case sensitive and it should be surfaceEDU@microsoft.com I guess they have a special filter rule?
For start, Microsoft surely must use Exchange internally, and Exchange addresses are not case sensitive. I don't think it's even possible to create a transport rule that is case sensitive.
Secondly, I sent mine to firstname.lastname@example.org all in lowercase and got a response.
I ordered 7 and got the basic response. Not great really as the end of the financial year is about to hit so need to spend the cash now or start the new year in debt. Im going on twitter later on the hassle them.
I have a message on my voicemail about it, I hassled the education uk team, apparently it is a 17 working day delivery from confirmation of the order, but I have not had confirmation of the order, just a standard email about making sure the form is filled out.
I would be careful with this offer, they are giving windows RT machines away at their partner conference as well.
Stinks of trying to remove old stock to me, of a failed operating system.
gave away Chromebook Pixel's at this year's I/O conference (and a Nexus 7, Nexus Q, Galaxy Nexus and Chromebox the previous year). Should I be careful with any of those?

Hardly failed is it - and £133 is giving it away. If it will do a good job of something (which it certainly can if you put your mind to it) then nothing really stinks to me.
Well yes RT has not gone down too well so yes I am not surprised that they are trying to clear stock, could be in preparation for the big push on Surface Pro aimed at business, coming next month: Surface Pro for enterprise: We name the dates and the lucky partners
anyone got theirs yet? They took 3 weeks to tell me as we didn't have a VAT number and to resubmit the order even though as academy we don't have one so here we are at the beginning again. Im quite the Microsoft fanboy most the time but it takes them 3-4 weeks to tell me they cant take the order!
Looks like the orders are coming through. Just recieved mine.
