Pros: Solid piece of hardware given the price. Speedy enough for all but the most demanding PC applications. Full Windows, none of the RT (ARM) limitations. Comes with Office 2013. Screen has good viewing angles.
Cons: BUGGY. I had to restore the OS after an update caused it to hang on the loading screen despite running Startup Repair. I then had various issues with secure boot. Eventually I got that sorted and the system stable. It would also seem to refuse to power on at times, requiring me to hold the power button for a good 30 seconds a couple times in a row before it would "wake". Disabling the hibernation settings seems to have fixed that. (though we were using "sleep" anyway!)
z37xx series isn't nearly as quick as a Core i5 Haswell based system, but then again even Haswell is limited by it's GPU performance when it comes to demanding PC applications. This is perfectly quick for browsing, playing/streaming media, and using Office. It won't be transcoding media (very quickly) or playing current generation games.
Screen resolution is a bit low for reading in tablet mode... With the screen closer to your face you really notice the lower pixel density.
Other Thoughts: Even if it had a high resolution display; Windows still doesn't deal very well with high resolution displays, increasing screen dpi to make Windows view able in high resolutions often causes problems with some apps.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Core i5, Hybrid Hard Drive, sufficient RAM, decent battery life, touchscreen for Windows 8+.
Cons: The display could use improvement, especially the viewing angles. In this day and age I expect a much better panel.
Other Thoughts: Middle of the road.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC
Pros: You get official Microsoft Office...
Cons: You no longer get Outlook or Access... Visio is still an add on. In my humble opinion it's a bit of a rip off considering what limited software you get!
Other Thoughts: LibreOffice, OpenOffice, GoogleDocsREAD FULL REVIEW
