Great start for a Table PC
on March 10, 2014
Setup was a breeze and there are accessories galore to play games with.
Mine had Windows 8.1 pre-installed (not 8) and was missing some apps that were suppose to be pre-installed (most notably Monopoly). After dealing with tech support round and round they were finally able to send me restore discs (internal restore to factory did nothing with the missing apps). After running the restore discs (3 hour process) I was then prompted to enter a new product key for windows saying the pre-installed key was invalid. I contacted Lenovo customer support again and they just say to retry the system restore and they will call me back. Never heard back from them but I did attempt ANOTHER 3 hour restore with the same results. After doing all of the windows updates including the 8.1 update the product key was magically valid (??).
So after the hassle of all this I now have a fully functional Table PC that we absolutely love!
I do not find much (if any) laggyness in the arua interface as others have described, so that could have been fixed in later releases.
I did buy a USB 3.0 Docking Station since this only have 2 USB ports built in and the docking station also allows me to add an additional monitor since this does not have any type of video output, just a HDMI in. I also bought an external BluRay burner since this has no optical drive built in.
Battery wise we can get about 2 games of Monopoly in before it pops up with a low battery message, so I believe that to be roughly around two hours as they rate.
Overall I would highly recommend this, just be prepared that there may be some more work to get everything you are suppose to...
