Conclusion

We’ve had some real good playing time with this tablet. There are a few downsides to it, but there are also a lot of upsides.

The build quality on this thing is simply amazing. While some things are not as desirable, such as, we were only able to get about 4-5 hours of battery life on here cruising the web and light tasks. We think that we would have got less if we were playing some games like Angry birds or Fruit Ninja. With that being said, we also noticed that with consistant playing with this you almost need the pen to work in desktop mode, or a mouse. 1920×1080 resolution within Windows 8 Pro on this small of a screen didn’t work very well with our fat fingers. Using the included pen made navigating desktop mode very quick and easy.

Even with half the battery life of the Surface RT, we simply love this tablet. Its VERY quick for a tablet, let alone a x86 based tablet. It offers a lot of flexibility with your applications, whether it be metro type application, or desktop applications. The unit is pretty thin and light, and over all a very nice tablet for productivity. We would say that you really need to have an addon keyboard for this thing if you want to use it in a production environment.
