Pros: I bought this unit two months ago to replace my old 17" laptop. It definitely does what I wanted it to do. It's light and the charger isn't huge like you see for laptops. The charger is smaller than an iPad charger. The battery life on this unit is amazing. I can use it for 5 straight hours of class, surfing the web, and Pandora and I will have plenty of battery life. The keyboard takes a little getting used to but it's quite efficient. I can easily take notes in class, and I use the Polaris Office along with Google Drive to organize my homework and things. I upgraded it right away to ICS 4.0.3 which looks and feels amazing. The gaming is fun as well. The speakers are sufficient but not extremely loud. The camera works well for Skype. I would recommend this item to anyone looking for a lightweight unit that operates well in a school/business environment.
Cons: The cons are subtle. The very first thing I noticed was the way that the unit slides out of the tablet form into the keyboard. I feel that in a few months, it may not snap into form. It seems like the air piston(s) in the back will wear out. Also, the screen unlock button and the volume buttons are not exactly convenient to get to on the left hand bottom side. They're too close together. This doesn't matter very much to me but I thought I would make it known: The Tegra 2 processors tend to lag when playing certain high graphic games. I didn't buy this unit for gaming so it didn't concern me but some users may want the higher quality processors.READ FULL REVIEW
