Early adopter says best yet.
on 18 April 2014
Why did I buy this? For a tablet that integrates better with windows - particularly office and for easy remote access to my server.
So far does everything asked of it. A touch slower than I would like, but that's a trade off you have to make for the battery life. It's actually more than fast emough for everyday use.
Screen is good, resolution good enough, streams recorded TV from the server wirelessly once Free VLC installed. For some reason best known to MIcrosoft , their own Media Player will not play TV recorded using a TV card and Media Center. Not played games yet so cannot comment on this.
Office 2013 installed, just have to enter the key. I still think that the built in Mail Client with Win8 is a bit rubbish, but Mozilla Thunderbird to the rescue. A lot of rubbish on the home screen to remove, but overall Win8 sits well on this tablet. Don't forget antivirus!
Don't buy the 32Gb version unless you're pushed for cash, go for the 64Gb as on the 32 there's not a lot of space left after the windows install. This is a full spec PC in tablet form, the atom chip seems easily up to the job.
EDIT: By the way, I forgot to mention - don't expect great sound quality.
