love this tablet UPDATED,
This review is from: Lenovo Ideatab S6000 10.1-Inch 16GB Tablet (Black) (Personal Computers)
I had been waiting for this tab for a long time, as for previous review about connecting to a PC, this is my 8th tablet in about 3 years, (I always buy a new tablet when companies upgrade) and every new tablet when it comes out has numerous updates before it runs perfectly. It happens with Samsung, Acer, APPLE and yes, even lenovo. If you want to buy the newest technology, you just have to deal with the little quirks and downfalls of doing so. There will be a update within 30 days to fix all problems like that. Lenovo contacted and said an update would be sent out within next couple of weeks to fis problem.
THERE IS A WORKAROUND LISTED BELOW, temp fix until update
I love this tablet, you cannot find another name brand tab with the high end specs like this for this cheap a price, especially with this size of display. The tablet with the closest specs to this s6000, would be the acer a1-810, but you would be downsizing to a 7.9" display. That is another awesome tab that i purchased about 2 weeks ago, and i love it too. Both tabs have the same quad core processor, same mega-pixel front & rear facing cameras, same android 4.2 operating system and same ips multi-touch HD display. The acer 7.9" is a little less than 200 bucks, which is unbelievable for those specs, and the s6000 is only 50 bucks more...for a 10.1" DISPLAY!!! What an awesome deal. My 2 fav tablet companies are now lenovo and acer. Now i cant wait for the new acer a3 10.1" hd high-end tab to be released sometime later this year... I cant wait, but am supurbly pleased with the s6000. Now i gotta purchase the keyboard case for it, it has its own battery plus usb ports! Yay! I highley recommend the lenovo s6000. I am sure you will love it, i did!
Workaround for Netflix to work
, first check box for unknown source download in settings, then under Google search type in "netflix 1.8.1 apk" go to link to aptoide app store, link starts with m.app that link takes you directly to netflix 1.8.1 apk, you will have to sign up with aptoid app store, but its free. After download click open file and click install. In case you lose your spot after downloaded , you can find the apk/app under downloads on you tablet. It works great for me, lenovo said they were going to let people know that the netflix 1.8.1 apk works until they get the update sent. I am writing this update on the 1st of august, so update to fix Netflix should be no later than the 15th of august. Other than that one issue, everything works great on my new s6000. I love it!

That's exactly the same reason I ordered this one. It's still on the way though, I cannot wait to receive it!

How did you get this (the S6000) so soon? On the Lenovo website, it states that it is "coming soon". Is this an updated version of what you bought?

No its same, I don't know why lenovo says that, its been available for over a month, you can get the 16gb version at amazon,eBay or even new egg. But you can get the 32gb at best buy only. And the lenovo site doesn't even say there is a 32 GB version, but that's the one I got.

Some people have commented that this tablet freezes up with youtube.
I am looking for a tablet to do medical education courses, and watch medical videos along with pdf files.
Is this a good tablet for this sort of thing, and if not what would you recommend ( also keeping cost into account)
