Not a bad unit
on September 15, 2012
The unit arrived in a better than timely fashion and in good shape. I really like the large size and the graphic card does a nice job with crisp clear printing and overall graphics. The built in speakers are only one step better than laptop quality, but I guess that is expected with such a small size. I have routed my sound through a home theater unit for much better sound. I do notice a slight interuption or burp in the sound at times but I am not sure if this is a computer or possibly an internet security system problem. I was dismayed to find that there is no built in TV tuner. I am able to stream tv shows but not in real time. The touch screen does not seem to work as well as I have seen on a tablet but I find it easier to use the mouse anyway. It did take a while to get rid of all of the extras that were included by the manufacturer. I didn't count them, but there were quite a few programs to delete. The unit speed is as advertised and the all in one unit eliminates a lot of cables and wires. All in all, I am quite happy with the unit and as I learn more about its features I expect to be even happier. I cannot attest to its longevity of operation as I have only had it for about a month. As with laptop type construction, there is not a lot the average user can do to repair it so I am hoping it will stand up well. Don't forget I am a senior and if 60 years younger I would probably be a lot better at operating the unit.
