I know the RT's getting on a bit, but does anyone know where I can pick a type cover for it (preferably on the cheap)?  Or am I out of luck?

Have had a quick look on Trade Me, but couldn't find anything.

I already have a touch cover, but have found typing on it a bit annoying so wanted to try a type cover.

I can confirm for you that the type cover 2 does work with the Surface RT.

Be warned though, the keyboard backlight does seem to drain the battery faster, or at least, it seemed that way with mine.
