Great full windows tablet
frakius has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Had this about three weeks and love it, having exactly the same experience as my desktop makes this the tablet I pick up over my iPad mini retina which is going on sale as I don't use it anymore.
The build quality is decent as is the screen, the real star however is the new atom processor in this which runs windows 8.1 without a hiccup. Seven tabs open in chrome one running a youtube video with excel open with a spreadsheet no sweat, no reloads when switching between tabs too.
Build quality is ok. a few creaks and plastic build makes it adequate but nothing special.
Wifi seems fine no issues with connectivity.
full windows pc so internet works without compromise
Can watch any format flawlessly and he Hdmi out makes it easy to output to a tv or monitor.
Not bad for a tablet, who uses tablets to take photos? Front facing camera is fine for skype.
The new atom processors fly in general day to day tasks.
Loses a couple marks as in desktop keyboard doesn't appear automatically when you click in text area and no auto correct suggestions in desktop. Apart from that the keyboard is excellent.
Very good display but resolution is low compared to competition now. It's still sharp though and I can read pages fully zoomed out, but it's no iPad mini retina display. Brightness is fine as are viewing angles.
Easily get a full day of heavy usage, light use it lasts for ages, it's standby battery usage is very low.
Full windows means no compromises on web or media and gives the ability to run desktop apps
Hdmi out gives it a edge over other win 8 inch tablets
Micro sd slot can help with space issues
Can use OTG cable to plug in any external device
Comes with office 2013 home and student
desktop apps can be fiddly on small screen
metro store still behind other platforms
32gb model doesn't leave you much free space, about 9gb after office
