Pros: Colorful, Large Screen, Illuminated keyboard is nice for dimly lit environments.
Cons: Very slow out of the box despite the technical specs for the system, Windows 10 build update disables the WLAN and color functionality of the keyboard, Lack of updates for the preinstalled hardware/software.
Other Thoughts: While it's a nice computer to do work on, the painfully slow startup is a buzzkill since you want to just "load & go" on a portable system. In hindsight I probably would have opted for a $300 laptop to play around on since I'm back to my desktop for my gaming needs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iPico Handheld LED Personal Projector for 30-pin iPhone/iPod touch by GE PJ205
Pros: Projects movies and Netflix at reasonably high quality and fairly clear picture.
Cons: No speakers built into the unit. If you were going to stream a movie on a surface for a movie night or something of that nature, you would have to purchase external speakers to make that happen. The battery does not last long enough to watch a whole movie, so you can attempt to leave it charging as you watch a movie to extend the time, but the best you can hope for is about 1.5 hours of viewing time with a full charge.
Other Thoughts: I found out after the fact that it's supposed to require a supplemental app to function (I wasn't aware of this, nor is it in the instruction manual) which probably explains why the price is so heavily discounted since the app is no longer available for download. The product also will not project images or anything else presumably without the supplemental app.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good value, Large screen size, Clear image - Compared to other computers you get a lot of features/hardware compared to how much you're paying over a netbook for example.
Cons: First and foremost some of the bloat-ware such as software from Wild Tangent and the option to use SkyDrive programs cannot be removed (especially if you upgrade to Windows 8.1). The wireless is very weak. At about 6-8 feet away from the router while still in the same room I drop down to about 3/5 of the available signal strength. Very disappointing if you don't happen to work in the same room as your router.
Other Thoughts: Had it not been for the value the wireless might have almost been a deal-breaker had I known about it. The addition of Windows 8 makes it more difficult to remove software that is undesired. Overall it's an excellent system for movie watching or just getting work done.READ FULL REVIEW
