    So I'm not going crazy? I managed to save the webpage on my computer along with my initial screenshot, but I still thought I was losing my mind, or MS site was.

    EDIT: MS Store is not considered ELECTRONICS STORE. So only 1% cash back from credit card.

    $1299 (ms store) - $52(4% fatwallet cashback) - $15 (1% citi master cashback) = $1232[/s] for A05 with free dock is a real good deal even if A03 sold by Amazon includes all the accessories (which nobody knows yet).


    For those who missed it, this is what it looks like in the receipt email from MS Store:

    No sales tax at MS store?? Does it depend on which state you live in?

    Yes, it depends on the state. Probably based on if there is a microsoft store in your state or not. I'm in Texas and there is a tax of $100.67.

    Even with the tax though, if it does come with a dock it is basically the same price as amazon once you add in the dock (according to the updated info on amazon it does NOT come with the dock or keyboard). Plus you get win 7 pro vs home premium with the 128gb ssd and microsoft signature.

    Helpful link, a guy in that forum managed to open the slate and upgraded the SSD. Part of the back cover was glued.

    I hope costo will be selling it at some point. They tend to bundle extra goodies with their items and I love their return policy.

    How do you do the fatwallet thing? I just created an account. Not sure what to do now.

    You put the dock and slate in your cart and then checked out and it gave you the dock for free?

    Sucks. They shouldn't advertise gigabit Ethernet as a feature if it doesn't come with the dock. I am debating canceling my preorder.
