The stream runs full W8.1. This is a great deal.

And since this version has minimal bloatware, it holds performance well. A lot of people complain about sucking bad performance on the regular version of this tab (or they will highly recommend you to find a way to remove the bloats). For this version at this price, heck yeah. I would definitely get one if I didn't have my current tablet and a compact Windows laptop.

Runs just fine, bought 3 and even with the kids having 8+ apps open going in and out of games, it simply breezes along.

On the MS site I didn't find a word about 3G connectivity. Does it mean it only has Wi-Fi?

What exactly do you expect out of a tablet running FULL Windows 8.1 for $80?

True. I've seen netbooks costing more and doing less.

It has WiFi, so you can connect to a Hotspot, like a phone or "Mi-Fi'..

Lasts about 6-8hrs depending on use. Upon delivery of tablet, it went through 3 user setups, host of downloads that took a long while to install, and playing for about 2hrs before I had to charge it the first time. Considering my kids are limited to 4hrs total a day in use via family safety, it is more than I will need.

Hey there EliteWolverine, I have q a question about this tablet that will decide on whether or not I buy this tablet. So my question is, can this tablet playback 4k YouTube video? I would mainly use this device as a media device, and I wanted to know if it would hold me up for a couple of years, or if I would need to buy a new one in a year or so. Thanks!!

Well that is certainly an interesting question. While the screen does not have it, i didnt have a problem doing so. Right now watching the Panasonic 4k Video test on youtube with the 4k selected. Once my conection caught up (was playing a game, watching netflix and 2 tablets on my web), it didnt have an issue playing it back.

Thanks a lot man!! You've assauged some worries I've had about the longevity of it! Sorry to ask another thing, but after reading this I heard that s lot of head phones have really bad static from the headphone jack, do you hear this as well? I'm sorry to ask again, it's just important for if this is a media device.

Mine didn't exhibit this. When nothing was on, there was some normal headset static but it was so faint I had to turn everything off in the room to hear it. Once music or YouTube trailers played it was good sailing.

$79 is really between cheap and not cheap. 1GB ram and 3000mAh battery kill the deal for me.

Honestly its not bad, my kids get a good 6-8hrs of unmonitored usage, I say that cause right now the tabs are family safety limited to 4hrs total a day. The 1gb of ram hasn't screwed with it, so far for what it does, it has typed 3 reports, played games like dragon and cars and host of other games that ages 3-12 will play.
