Buy it new anywhere and add Microsoft complete coverage within 45 days of purchase. You can add Square Trade coverage also if buying from Amazon. We bought MS complete for ours so if anything happens we can drive right to the MS store for repair\exchange. MS complete covers included accessories too.

Hello: It should be just fine for school. These units have Office 2013 RT which is a lite version (not the full version) of the software. We hope to earn your business. Thanks Jim

It was very easy to upgrade to 8.1, just went to Microsoft, searched for "8.1" and scrolled down to the "RT" VERSION. The process is takes about an 90 min, it is very hands off. The system will initially behave as a fresh install, but once your original account and password is entered it will behave as you had set up.

It does. The Surface operates on two levels, so there is a simpler mail app that operates at the tile interface level, and a regular version of Outlook that operates from the desktop. The two mail applications are set up and operate independently.

This Microsoft Surface comes with the Touch Cover, which may be used as a keyboard or as a protective cover for the Surface tablet when you're carrying it from place to place. Unlike the more expensive Type Cover, the Touch Cover keys don't move when you type. I have mixed feelings about the Touch Cover--it's hard for me to type as fast as I do on a traditional keyboard. However, the good news is that you may plug a traditional Windows keyboard with moveable keys into the USB port on the side of the Surface tablet. This seems to me to be a better solution than purchasing the more expensive Type Cover--especially if, like me, you've got some old Windows keyboards lying around.

Yes. Bing Maps is preinstalled, unfortunately Google doesn't offer their maps application on the Windows store. Although you may always open google maps through a web browser
