Very capable win8 tablet
This review is from: Acer ICONIA W4-820-Z3742G06aii 64 GB Net-tablet PC - 8" - In-plane Switching (IPS) Technology - Intel Atom Z3740 1.33 GHz
Pros: I have the 32GB version of this tablet and it has FAR exceeded my expectations. The quad core atom cpu is "fast enough", and running one or two things at once like office one note plus email, or email plus word, or email and a web browser, works great within the 2GB ram that this tablet has. The 32GB storage isn't really large enough, but a 64GB microSD card is really cheap so that should probably be the first accessory you get for this tablet. With a Bluetooth or USB keyboard/mouse, this could easily be a go-anywhere laptop replacement. And for a student or someone who doesn't do anything too demanding on their computer, this could even be hooked up to a monitor and desktop-style USB keyboard/mouse (through a powered USB hub ideally) and turn into a complete desktop replacement.
Cons: I still don't like windows 8 after setting up this tablet for my own use. It's clunky and obscures features without making anything easier to use, and Microsoft STILL hasn't figured out how to make windows work on a small screen. But that's a mark against windows 8, not this tablet. As far as I can tell win8 works the same on this and any other similarly sized small tablet.
Other Thoughts: The back is plastic and doesn't feel very solid, but most people will probably put this into a case or cover so the thin plastic back is actually a reasonable design choice I think.
