I found the IE on RT not really that fantastic compared to the other browsers on other devices, so that just leaves Office as a plus.

I think the problem is not IE10. The problem is Tegra 3.

Is there anything in particular to take note of upon collection of the RT (from schools)? Can exchange 1-1 on the spot if the set given is defective?

Bluestacks only works for x86 Intel.
Just wait for the official apps to be on W8, android tablet ones are just scaled up phone apps that doesn't provide a good user experience.

And until newer hardware comes along it's a package deal, at least for the Surface RT.

The fact that MS has to do all these Surfaces in secret explains why they're using outdated hardware (by 2012 standard). They couldn't get too many people involved or they'll break the secrecy.

So while the OS was ready, the hardware & App situation isn't. But it's also a chicken & egg story. No hardware, no eco-system. No eco-system, no customers. No customers, no developers.

NVidia has confirmed that they're working with Microsoft on Surface 2 but Nokia is rumoured to have Sirius using Snapdragon 800. So does Microsoft actually have 2 versions of RT 8.1?

I wonder how's Tegra 4 compared to Snapdragon 800... With most major apps ready or pledged for RT/8.1, it may have a chance although I think the best thing MS should do is to just put RT on WP9.

All the secrecy, all for naught.

Wouldn't surprise me if RT is scalable to support different processors, after all Android does it just fine.
