Summary: I got this machine after the other netbook I had (running windows xp) was going obsolete. I was curious about tablets, because everbody had one, but I needed a more stable design because I knew I was going to be using it with a keyboard of some sort.. So this, being something of a convertible netbook/tablet, fulfilled that requirement. I like the brushed metal cover, so at its size it doesn't look like a toy. For most of my purposes this is pretty decent.
Excerpt: We have had a few problems powering up the device. We have to push. The power button many times before it comes on. It also has a bit of trouble using the Wi-fi. It finds the source but will says it isn't connected. Sometimes resetting the router and modem works, but other times it doesn't.
Summary: I have both this and the Asus. They're full windows machines that can run anything, for 11 hours. The Atom is not fast enough for high end games and noticeable (slow) with big applications, but if you do work, e-mail, etc then it is great. I wrote this review to compare the two, because while nominally equivalent, the HP and Asus have two key differences: 1) HP has great keyboard and mouse Asus ok keyboard and the touchpad is *way* too sensitive to accidental palm...
Summary: A convertible, loaded with Win8...Took a while to get comfortable with W8; still not sure I like all of its features, but the ability to uncouple the tablet makes this a useful addition to our computer family. Price was better than anywhere I'd seen them, and the shipping was almost immediate. Another satisfying experience thru Amazon.
Summary: I purchased this little laptop to use as a spare in the house when I didn't want to lug my larger laptop in my from office. I have all of my remote desktop links and other links on it and find it just what I was looking for. The battery life is very good-I often forget to shut it down and it still has a charge when I come back to it.
Summary: If I good get a casing for the tablet part of this system it would score my 5 star. The many reviews against the ATOM it bear is over rated. It's a laptop for doing work on the go and not graphic design or animation desktop, so the speed is good for the price. The build is by far the key reason for buying this. I also didn't want a tablet just to play.
Summary: Pros: Powers up fast (SSD). Downloads apps and programs quickly. Size is great and it is very portable. Keyboard has its own power for longer battery life. Processor seems to be very quick and responsive. Has a true operating system so runs REAL programs (we run office Pro + without any issues). Works great with our Apple Air Wifi and even can print to our Kodak AIO wireless printer. Has Micro SD memory slots too.
