Pros: Beautiful picture quality. No dead pixels on my unit. It was touted for low eyestrain in some computer magazines - helpful for my photophobia. The screen fits nicely on my puny desk. Metal stand looks nice (but uses a little too much room). Excellent scaling of fonts and graphics in Win 7. This product is perfect for all day use without significant eyestrain (for most people with healthy eyes). Good brightness, contrast and colors.
Cons: Poor audio: low volume and poor quality. No mount holes. Poor scaling of fonts and graphics in Win XP. Still a bit pricey. Some un-sizeable text is too small for me to see without glasses. Control buttons are a bit flimsy and glitchy. Wobbles a little too much.
Other Thoughts: I use this mostly for programming and on-line work. I cannot comment on its suitability for gaming or professional graphics. It will probably not please everybody.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Surface RT 64GB
Pros: 1. You can get these cheap now, new or refurbished
2. Bluetooth and USB
3. Links to cloud server, OneDrive, SkyDrive
4. Excellent value, includes Word, Xcel, Powerpoint, etc.
5. Some good apps, not many
Cons: 1. Can be very slow and painful to upgrade and setup. I used at least 8 hours of precious time - not worth it for some. Very kludgey upgrade that can easily mess up.
2. The touchscreen is not very responsive.
3. Some lag compared to faster processors and video chips.
Other Thoughts: Meets my needs very well since I wanted a cheap tablet to surf the internet while being a couch potato. My other computer is a workstation and I don't want to waste it on slacking and entertainment. Email works fine. Office apps work fine. Apple Bluetooth keyboard works fine but is tricky to setup. Easy connection to SkyDrive.READ FULL REVIEW
