5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE SO MUCH, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's amazing being able to alternate between keyboard, mouse ... AND SCREEN.

It improves my efficiency so much. Sometimes a mere press on the screen is so much more intuitive and easier to do that use my mouse or keyboard.

The stand is also amazing and allows me to be dynamic with the way I work. If I'm collaborating with someone on a project I just pop it down and we can use it like some futuristic massive touchscreen.

IF YOU ARE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME:

The stand seems to be reluctant to fully come out; this is normal and it won't break if you apply a lot of force to budge it. It should "click" and it will be fine. I spent about half an hour working that one out worried that forcing it would damage it. The resistance thing is what makes it sturdy - don't be afraid :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for mac; Good for pc, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a PC, my flatmate has a mac and this works on both. Does what it claims to do and isn't too noisy. Highly recommend if you need a portable drive particularly for thin laptops that don't come with the necessary technology to support a DVD drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of ram, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use photoshop, run a virtual webserver and regularly have tonnes of programs open at once so this works extremely well with no compromises to any of the software items I am operating.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like it, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Windows 8 works well for me. I have a 27" touchscreen monitor.

I think the negative reviews are primarily from people who are afraid of change. This product is a step in the right direction for the future of computing. The tablet-craze is upon us and this facilitates that trend whilst staying true to fundamental constituents to what comprises a desktop/laptop.

I recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT QUIET, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All those commenting on it being quiet must be deaf. When in use this product kicks up a storm. I was using this at night thinking it'd be silent and it woke my flatmate up in another room with the door closed.

It does what it claims to do - just not silently.

I'm not a massive gamer - I play sims 3 and simcity. BUT these adjust my settings automatically to make everything work optimally with my CPU/GPU combination.

1.0 out of 5 stars Loads of purple, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overpriced ringbinders and didn't get an assortment at all. I got no yellow or blue ones and tonnes of purple ones. I'm so disappointed. These are hardly cheap - I can get similar off the high-street for much cheaper; it's just hard to find the colours. I thought I'd splurge a bit as there was the variety.

I would strongly advise against making a purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They're so squidgy. I use one for my bed - my duvet set came with a cushion case so I bought some cheap cushions for that. But that is the only instance I can think of where these cushions are useful. No good for propping your back up on a sofa.

5.0 out of 5 stars So pretty... wash separately though, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I put a colour catcher with the duvet cover alone and realised that the colour catcher came out very red, which would mess up white areas of the bedding, so either wash separately, or use a colour catcher. I would recommend doing both as the red on the pillowcases seemed to run onto the catcher too - not so much though.#

The feel is very nice, and it's so cheap.
