A good portable system that you can drag around the house. Nice gear 7.5-10

Summary: Would go better with an SSD, but adequate. 8GB of ram is prefered. Very nice response from the touch screen. Good clour but not true HD. Turn the junk off, install start8 and your up and running.
Summary: HHD to slow, everything alse excellent I was pretty excited about this purchase. Now that it's here, I still want to love it and I think I do. There have been some challenges with assimilating to this new format. Not a fault of the computer, Windows 8 is... ummmm, interesting to say the least. Once you get used to it this computer is the perfect application for Windows 8. (Hint... learn the shortcuts!!
Summary: I was looking for something to replace the old desktop running Vista. I wanted something that ran in the windows 8 environment and could still be considered a working person's computer if needed. This fits the bill nicely. Certainly not for everyone, but a very good jack of all trades if you want to have a family centric computer that does most things very well.
Pros: * Portability - No it's not a replacement for your tablet, but it will certainly set-up quickly anywhere you need, * Virtual keyboard is easy to use, * Integrates with Office 365 very well for the cloud environment, * Screen resolution is very good
Cons: * Bloatware, * The screen could be thinner, * Windows 8 can take a while to get used to and is very frustrating at times because of the learning curve involved, * No HDMI connection is a big miss for those of us wishing to connect to a large screen tv.
Summary: As a tech geek, I love innovative designs like the Sony Tap 20.
Pros: - Despite not being 1080p, the screen is fantastic., - Very responsive touch, - Battery is fine. The cord is similar to a laptop's which makes for easy recharging., - Playing pinball in portrait mode... Glorious.
Cons: I would love to see future versions of this PC to be slightly thinner and lighter., I don't think it came with a cloth which is odd. Fingerprint hell. I don't mind, but I know some people do.
Excerpt: Had to download about 2G's worth of updates, programs etc. Had some freezing, I'm impatient though. Doing some Dreamweaver work- brilliant. Some videos a bit blurry on Full screen and @ 65mbps wifi .Would prefer closing button on W8 as opposed to swipe, keep on getting application still running warnings on Shut down.
