I really cannot fault this item! I have had for about 3 weeks now and it has completly replaced my Kindle Fire HD and I thought that would never happen! I love the netbook/tablet conversion. That was a real selling point for me, plus I needed Microsoft Office so it could double up as a laptop for work. So far I cannot put it down! I have all of my music on, (Thank god for Amazon Cloud app!) and I can read my Kindle books, switching between facebook, google and all of my apps is awesome! I love being able to open two windows on the page something that I wished the Kindle could do, I was worried about the Microsoft store as I heard the apps were not as good as google play but they seem to offer a veriety of games, not that I play much! I have even discovered tv apps which is a god send for me as I work from home and cannot move away from my computer too far so I can now watch tv, netflix and access my Amazon Instants all at the touch on the screen.
My only complaints are that the screen is constantly full of prints! and I wish the tablet bit had a little kick stand but they are just personal gripes! I really cannot sing this Asus' praises enough! For under £300 I have so much technology, bearing in mind my Kindle 8.9 cost the same and although it's great it can be a bit limited on the opperating system.
I notice some reviewers have complained about Windows 8 but it's really not that bad, I like my tiles scrolling and it looks very posh! The main down side tho is the battery life. On constant use I can get about 4 hours and it takes all day to recharge, I just invested in a different charging lead which has helped alot! But I guess you cant have it all! All in all it's a pretty impresive piece of kit! Top marks Asus!
