A full Windows 8.1 Tablet (with keyboard and pen), Dual Booted with Android, for less than a Surface Pro.

Summary: I mainly got this tablet for two reasons: 1. Bang for the Buck if bought refurbished/used. Also easier to repair than the Surface. - You get the tablet with a keyboard accessory and Wacom digitizer + pen, at a price around $450 (note, I bought this refurbished). A Surface Pro, or other equivalent, would cost at least $500-600 for the tablet alone, along with a $100 cost for the keyboard accessory.
Summary: Good. 1. Strong machine with strong processor that can handle legacy applications such as photoshop or illustrator. I5-3317U is adequate for most situations, heavy multitasking, gaming, and some graphic related tasks. 2. Lightening quick SSD. Loads up applications fast for a tablet pc. Transfer files like a boss. Believe me, it will make you smile. 3. Accurate pen. I am an art major grad student and this does the job!
Summary: I did a lot of research on all comparable tablets before finally deciding on this one. I think it has overall the best specs, design, weight, accessories in its class. Once it is upgraded to windows 8.1 it is even better than out of the box. It is lightning fast, the display is crisp and crystal clear the battery is adequate (6-7 hours after windows 8.1).
Summary: Samsung seems to have taken care in designing the machine. The built in stylus holder is genius. (Just don't lose there is no way to order a stylus to replace the one that fits in the case). I was attaching it to a 27 inch touch screen monitor for a great experience when I was tethered. On the go it was a great experience with the small screen. Unfortunately 6 months after the purchase, it stopped working.
The keyboard dock keeps this from being a 5-star product!

Summary: I received this device on 4/9/13. Right out of the box, I was blown away at how big 11.6 inches is in a tablet! This one, although covered in plastic, feels very sturdy and is easy to hold in the hand. It does get heavy with extended use and outside of the keyboard dock, you'll tend to lay it down on its back. Speaking of the keyboard dock, I don't know where to begin. Do I begin with the connection problems that was supposed to be resolved in the K01 revision?
