Actual weight of the surface box (64gb inc cover) is 1.8kg
I paid 91S$ with vpost for shipping and GST...~30$s of that was shipping.
unless you ordered 8 pieces, can't be 14,5 kg...

the kg referring to the volume weight... means they put your tablet in a box that can carry 14.5 kg things...

inside the box probably full of the bubble stuffing...

Nope, volumetric weight is only 1.2kg...Microsoft sends it in a super-sleek box. No bubbles ;-)

As mentioned before: yes. International multivoltage transformer (takes 110-240V) and charges the thing to the brim in just 2hrs :-D

If you are touch typist, get the Type cover. Else get the Touch cover which is thinner and lighter.
