    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?

    Annoying much,

    As replying to one email puts it all in lowercase, so have to retype the address and kill the auto fill.

    I don't believe that for a second.

    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 surfaceedu@microsoft.com all in lowercase and got a response.

    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.

    Google 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?

    What's wrong with that? Other companies do the same.

    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

    Maybe. Still £133 for an RT is a bargain. They are fine little tablets for browsing and email. That they come with office (albeit, 'student edition) is a huge bonus.

    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!

    Did they deliver from what you put in the order or was there another step? We submitted our order and received a confirmation that they would be in touch. Should I expect a delivery then or are there other steps after submitting the order?
