Not as many pros as cons...
on January 14, 2014
This tablet was purchased as a gift for my grandfather. He has good familiarity with touch screens but wanted a Windows-based tablet rather than an iPad to use a few different programs for his business. He uses it primarily for an on-the-road tablet.
Long battery life. Usually lasts about 6-8 hours.
The display is bright.
I like the keyboard/case combination.
You can up the RAM to make it run faster.
You can switch from Windows 8 to an actual Windows 7 Desktop (by far the best feature).
Screen lag is very noticeable when you switch from using this tablet to an iPad.
The tablet seems to run slowly at times.
Windows 8 is clunky and not my cup of tea. I may like it on a desktop, but it is difficult to navigate via touch screen (despite that being the purpose behind Windows 8...)
Booting up often takes several minutes.
Applications often load slowly.
After having this for a month or so, my grandfather wanted to sell it and get an iPad, saying he would rather do his other work on his desktop computer as this tablet runs extremely slow. Unfortunately, after several attempts to sell on eBay, no one is even interested in buying it. Avoid this tablet and keep on searching!
