I spend every waking moment on a laptop for work, and pleasure. This thing goes with me everywhere. Its a little heavier than the ipad but it blows it out of the water in so many other respects.
First off, let me tell you, the only reason I am comparing this device to an ipad is becuase it has an excellent touch screen functionality that has allowed me to work on it full time using only the touch screen. I have had tablets in the past, and (besides the ipad) they have never been able to function for me smooth enough without frustration.
But i digress, here are the pros and cons
Pros: Speed (fastest processor currently available)
Functionality (full windows 8 platform can run any program smoothly, even games)
Touch (smooth and silky and responsive, pen is good for precision if you have too fat fingers for the high resolution
Sound quality (outstanding stereo hands down better than any of the other 3 devices i mentioned)
cons: heavy and battery life 3 hours only without extra battery
Pros: Size, cool factor, 8gb Ram, 256GB SSD, built in HDMI output, beautiful screen, I can use it as a tablet when I feel like it and use it to do actual work. The best part? REAL WINDOWS! I'm not locked into anyone's "App store" anymore.
Cons: the keyboard takes some getting used to. I wish it had a DVI out for using my monitor at full 2550 x 1600 Resolution instead of the limitations of HDMI and VGA.
It's amazing how little things make a big difference. With this device, you just take it out of its case or whatever, turn it on and start using it. If you need the keyboard (and I use that less than I expected so far), just pop up the screen. With the Lenovo, you have to first open it, turn it all the way around if you want to use it as a tablet, turn it on, and then use it. Those extra steps are just a pain.
Windows 8 does take some getting used to, but I haven't found anything I don't like about it once I figure out how to use the various features. And there is a lack of documentation on how to use the apps, e.g., Note Anywhere - looks like a great product, but learning it is trial & error.
Another big plus is the connectivity. I do a lot of PowerPoint presentations, often using clients' projectors...which "all" have a VGA connector. With the Duo, I don't have to carry a VGA adapter dongle - just plug it in. Ditto with the full size HDMI port and SD slot.
My HP laptop is now my "desktop computer" and one of the issues I've been wresting with is how to sync the two since they both run Windows & Microsoft Office.Read more ›
There are two downsides:
1. When browsing (I use Chrome), tapping the screen can lead to inadvertent clicks. If you tap the screen near a link or button (not actually tapping the button) the button or link will be clicked. This is useful if you have poor depth perception or spacial acuity, but if you are just trying to select the chrome window or deselect something you have highlighted, you don't want to accidentally click on some advertisement in the process. There may be a way to fix this, but I haven't yet found it. It could be a windows 8 thing, and not the fault of the computer.
2. The second annoying thing is the keyboard. I have small hands and the size doesn't bother me, but the lack of key sensitivity does. If you don't hit these keys square on and press them all the way down, they won't register. I cant tell you how many times I have had to go back and add in missing letters while typing this review alone. Very annoying.
The sound quality is good, but the volume is not very loud. I tried to watch a movie outside on the deck, but the sound was drowned out by the chirping of the crickets and cicadas. I had to resort to a bluetooth speaker.
My stylus broke within the first week (I knelt on it), but sony said they would send me another no problem.
Everything else works as advertised and I am very satisfied!
