A pretty darn good Windows tablet
This review is from: MSI W20 3M-002US AMD A-Series 2GB Memory 128GB SSD 11.6" Touchscreen Tablet Windows 8
Pros: I was in the market for a tablet. I had to run the full Windows, and offer great specs for the cost. I didn't want a Surface because in my opinion the price Microsoft wants for it is a bit to high. I ended up narrowing down my choices to two, the Vizio Tablet PC, and this MSI W20, and after several weeks of thinking, I went with this W20.
Cons: The resolution is not the greatest, only 1366x768, which is not stellar but the advantage is increased battery life. No stylus is included, but there are many capacitive compatible stylus out there for very little money. The webcam is not the greatest, only .9MP, but for the intended task it is adequate. While it does feature a full size USB port, it only features one, although you can use a port multiplier available at many retailers, and according to the manual, does not support an external hard drive or optical drive, only a keyboard, mouse, and USB drive. It has a docking connector, but at this time there is no docking station. The fingerprint scanner is also on the back of the unit instead of on the front, which means it cannot be used with any third party covers, though for some this may not be a con. The wireless capabilities, while being excellent in terms of signal strength, are limited to 802.11n. My unit shipped with Windows 8.0, which means 4GB of updates will be necessary.
Other Thoughts: Some of you may not pay attention to this review because I am not a "Verified Purchaser", but that is because, surprisingly, a major competitor sold this tablet for about 30% less as their regular price, and this is not an Iron Egg Eligible item. However, Newegg is the place to go for accessories such as a bluetooth keyboard, and a MicroSD card.
