Summary: This tablet was ACER's attempt to introduce a product to market but it wassn't well thought out. Tablets don't have the processing horsepower to run Windows 7 and the hard drive is a 16GB chip. Way too small. OK for email but that's about all. The tablet has nice features (the hardware) and an upgrade to Windows 8 made it more functional. Win 8 runs easier on the tablet. Overall, Hold out for ACER's W7 tablet.
Poor tablet and poor quasi laptop make for a pretty poor device.

Summary: I consider myself very forgiving and not picky in the least when it comes to product reviews... however, this product is pretty poor unless you strictly want to browse the web and can deal with the many flaws of Windows 7 tablet experience. Windows 8 is better, but still has many flaws. Pros - Has versatility as it functions as a tablet and a quasi-laptop. Cons - Under-powered as both a tablet and a laptop.
Summary: First off the touch screen is ridiculously unresponsive. Don't bother trying Netflix. If you're going to carry this around you might as well carry your laptop around. Fortunately work gave it to me so I'm indifferent to the disappointment. It will just sit in my hall closet in the box it came it.
Summary: The worst thing about this tablet is its digitizer. Mine was defective, with a spot in one corner that was intermittently clicking whatever was beneath it. Downloading all the many patches and drivers didn't help this. Even when it was working, though, it had poor resolution and no palm rejection, so you had to work on it without touching the screen except with the pen tip.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this product. The reviews that I read were excellent, and I thought that this Tablet would be a good fit for what I want to do. This was going to be used more for business than gaming, or streaming videos and therefore I did not test it. My needs are more towards a portable product to use outside the office. As soon as I received I began playing with it and setting it up for my needs.
Summary: So much effort to get simple things done: Adding a bluetooth device takes efforts. Keep them working takes efforts (or reboots and re-adding the devices). Sloppy performance: Internet Explorer froze. OK, that could be Microsoft's problem. But the freeze also froze my USB mouse. Use task manager (fortunately the touch screen still works) to terminate IE. Then my mouse was back. Mouse dies with IE is unlikely a Microsoft's problem.
Summary: I am very disappointed in this so-called tablet. It is quite thick and heavy. The keyboard dock, which is a great idea, is very light so it tends to tip over when using it on your lap. It is okay on a flat surface, but just barely as it still remains very top heavy. The tablet alone is not comfortable to hold due to its bulk. With the tablet attached to the keyboard it is the size and weight of a netbook.
Summary: I bought this not too long ago and I'm a little disappointed. The screen is unresponsive and the dock is just garbage. The tab can't even fold over the dock like a laptop, I came close to breaking it accidentally by trying to close it like a laptop. I should have bought a netbook with the same performance for half the price. Windows 7 is NOT really touch/tab friendly. Save three hundred dollars and buy a comparable netbook.
Summary: I previously wrote a review on this so called tablet. For some reason Amazon did not publish the review. I suspect that Amazon is trying to push this tablet by publishing as many rave reviews as possible and discard as many negative reviews as possible. I wrote in my previous review that purchased this tablet on July 20, 2011. I returned the tablet to Amazon on the same day it arrived after I tinkered with it for a few hours.
