US $499 Surface RT sold out after one day of pre-orders

US $599 and $699 models still available


Despite its quite steep price, Microsoft's US $499 Surface RT model has been sold out after only one day of pre-orders. On the other hand US $599 and US $699 models are still available.

Microsoft's US $599 and US $699 Surface RT models are still up for grabs and both come with overpriced keyboard covers.
