Intro: Is this a Tablet? Is this a Laptop? It's both!
Specs: The model I received was the 32 GB hard drive model with 2GB RAM. It runs on Windows 8.1 OS, 64 bit. Has 2 USB ports (one of them is 3.0), HDMI out, headphone/mic jack, built in wi-fi, webcam, and memory card reader. Note, there's no CD/DVD drive built in (you can buy one aftermarket)
Packaging: It was nicely packaged in a compact cardboard box with power cord, and quick start manual.
Setup: When first powering it on, it will ask you to enter your Microsoft account or create one. This took about 10 minutes. You can skip this process, but you shouldn't. And this is because later on, if you want to download anything from the App store, you will require the MSN account.
Usage: The laptop can be used in its standard laptop configuration. But you can also fold the screen completely back and use it as a tablet. The computer will detect the keyboard is folded and inactivate it. It did take me about couple of hours usage to get used to the idea of using the touch screen. But once you get the hang of it, it's actually pretty convenient. The tablet interface is very intuitive. I already use Xbox live and Xbox one, and the graphics and interface is very similar. There are a lot of preloaded programs including things like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Skype, etc. There's also a one month free MS office trial you can use. It comes with virus protection through Macafee. I currently have full size desk top and have an ipad. I think this does seem to bridge the gap nicely probably for 75-80% of the time. I think there will always be those that need specific functions - like heavy multimedia use or hard core gaming. This of course was not designed for that. I think if I was traveling, or a student, or just need something to do word processing, surf web, check email, skype, and play some tablet games, this would fit the role perfectly.
Conclusion: This is a good laptop/tablet combination. It is very light and versatile. Comes with lots of preloaded software, and have built in wifi, and webcam. It does great with light computing and fit the role nicely. I would recommend this to a friend or family member.
