What are the options in storage sizes?

Surface RT comes in two storage sizes: 32GB and 64GB1. The more storage you have, the more content you can store on your Surface, such as apps, music, HD videos, movies, photos, books and magazines, and documents. For example, if you have a large music / photo / HD movie library, or if you would like the freedom to store many Microsoft Office documents, it’s a good idea to consider the 64GB option. If you have a relatively small media library or rarely make or buy movies, the 32GB capacity option may be better for you. Of course, over time you will accumulate many things on your Surface, so consider how your storage needs may evolve and pick the amount of storage that is right for you.

Why choose a Surface RT 32GB/64GB + Touch Cover bundle?

If you want the complete Surface experience right out of the box, choose one of our specially-priced bundled options. Select either 32GB or 64GB storage. Each bundle comes with a black Touch Cover keyboard, with the back constructed of high-quality microfibre material. Touch Cover has a unique look and feel.

Why choose a Surface RT 32GB unbundled?

If you prefer to pick the Touch Cover or Type Cover that best suits you, choose a Surface that is not bundled with a cover keyboard. Read on or click here to learn more about Touch Cover and Type Cover.

Why add a Touch Cover?

Add one of our colourful Touch Covers to extend your Surface experience. Touch Cover is a dual-purpose keyboard and protective cover. Choose from white, cyan, red or magenta2. These Touch Covers deliver the same protection and productivity as the black Touch Cover but the back side is made of a smooth polyurethane material.

Why add a Type Cover?

Add our Type Cover if you prefer a more classic keyboard feel and want to get work done, fast. Our Type Cover was specially designed to incorporate a classic keyboard feel in an ultra-thin format that allows you to be productive anywhere. Type Cover has the same high-end microfibre backing as the black Touch Cover.

Why add a Surface HD Digital AV Adapter?

The Surface HD Digital AV Adapter allows you to share what is on your Surface device with friends and family through HDTV, video projectors or other HDMI-compatible displays.

Why add a Surface VGA Adapter?

Share your photos, documents or presentations with a larger audience by connecting your Surface to a projector, monitor, TV or LCD display that uses a VG3A connector.
