Nice little machine. Running full versions of some MS Office products, often simultaneously w/ lots of cut and paste: OneNote, Word, PowerPoint.

Ditched McAfee and disabled DuoStage at startup / screen flip.

Not running Thinix. Net browsers = IE and Firefox.

Runs warm w/ my fairly heavy use of MS Office products and occasionally does not immediately wake from sleep. I think this is an overheating protection in the firmware. Not sure.

1) the touchscreen features;
2) full MS Office capabilities (bought separately);
3) great WiFi / surfing and video playback;
4) USB ports on machine and also SD card slot on dock;
5) the fact that I can use it as a picture frame slideshow in the dock!

Not liking:
1) short battery life;
2) occasional refusal to immediately return from sleep upon attempt to boot, although probably related to overheating, so real issue for me would be the overheating -- if this is it, I can just set it on my A/C vent going full-blast;
3) ugly fingerprints on screen, although easily rectifiable;
4) wish it had a DVD player, although we're working on getting vids on it.
