Summary: Out of the box, this device would not pass windows activation or download new apps or updates. I contacted Dell support and they referred me to fee-based support for this problem (keep in mind this was for a tablet that was broken out of the box). I tried Dell's twitter support reps and they gave some helpful ideas that didn't pan out.
Summary: Long time institutional customer and Dell fan. Ordered 10 of these to determine whether Windows tablets could replace laptops. If everything worked properly these would be decent machines, especially with the docking station. Love the USB port and the SD card slot. Good battery life and faster than I expected. Even with the Atom processor the SSD makes them decent for most everyday applications. Browsers, full version of Office 2010, etc. all run fine.
Summary: Please save your money and buy a different tablet. This seriously is the worse tablet ever!!!! I've only had the tablet for about two months. I have had to get the motherboard changed twice the battery changed like 3 times. It crashes all the time. The problem is not the windows 8 it is on dells end. I honestly wish i could get my money back!!
Summary: This item has been non-functional since the first time I rebooted this item. It worked fine until I had to reboot the tablet, and then it is asking for an administrator key to finalize the reboot. When contacting the seller, I was told this item had been refurbished and that he had no issues with this item.
Summary: The tablet w/windows 8 is a piece of junk. The touch screen works when it wants. Might as well use a mouse. This tablet is poor on games. Has to catch up to itself. so if u are playing a game that needs fast time, it is very slow and u have lost the game. I wish i had NEVER bought it. My phone is faster.
Summary: I have searched for a new tablet several weeks and was very excited to see that Dell tablet was half price. I immediately bought it....and regret ever since. First - immediately after unpacking and switching it on I realized that I do not like it, that the touch screen is not as responsive as it should be and that Windows 7 is not really a system for tablets. I tried to return it but the seller did not allow me this. I tried to sell it, but I cannot find any buyer.
