Haters gonna hate, but I like it.

I see many people hate this tablet for being Windows 8/8.1 tablet. Let haters hate this, I love this tablet. Good to be used as tablet, and laptop. I have main desktop and main laptop both running i7s, and use this tablet for light uses like browsing internet, reading comics and books off of internet. Oh great to work out because it is heavy..

Superb build quality. I've had couple tablets, and this one has the best build quality. I took 2 points off because the keyboard dock broke on me after 6 months.

It's freakin Windows!! install chrome or firefox, then you will have full internet in your hands. I took 1 point off for lack of 1Gbit ethernet adapter.

Perfect, but 1 point off for lack of dedicated card which results in lagging when watching 1080p movie.

Windows 7 on similar tablets were not meant to used with touch screen. It was horrible. Windows 8 however, works great with touch. UI is straight forward. I like it.

Windows 8/8.1 kills the party

JkB_SlH has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

A lot of issues whether by the frustrating OS or by the hardware.
See pros and cons.
I think that none of windows based tablets are recommended at this point,as it is not optimized for pad like usability.
I went crazy after just a couple of months.

Bottom line, I do not recommend this tablet.
