The good - It is responsive, runs anything I throw at it with no issues. Very impressive on that account. Boot up is super fast. Battery life is very good. Screen is not as good as more expensive devices but it is more than adequate.
The bad - The stylus is not worth the trouble. Could use more ports. The materials online talk about bitlocker encryption, but the Standard Windows 8 that comes with the tablet does not include bitlocker. To upgrade to 8 Pro is $100. There is little room left on the SSD after Windows, but so far I have not had issues running out of room, but I am not an app hog,. I store documents, pictures, etc. on the removable mini SD card.
Bottom line, I am very happy with the device. IT IS NOT A LAPTOP REPLACEMENT, but it works perfectly (after the upgrade to Win 8 Pro) for what I wanted it for, secure access to email and light duty tasks when out of the office. Cranking up my laptop takes more time that most of these tasks. This is instant on, I have it paired with my phone for Internet Tethering, and within seconds can read and respond to secure messages that my phone can't open. It is a lot easier to type on than my phone as well. This may be the device that allows me to give up email on my phone all together. It is also good for webbrowsing etc. I have not tested it yet presenting powerpoints using Miracast, but it is on my list to do.
