This tablet is blazing fast As long as you don't put it in power saving mode. Light, and powerful. Lots of capabilities
Beautifully designed screen. Very bright. This is the first tablet I've owned. I've been waiting for the technology to improve these past year's since the first tablet's came out. This is a fast unit.
Even after playing back a 2 hour movie, the unit run's very cool, considering
Good resolution, built-in speakers
Perfect size - big enough for notes and real work, small enough to be toted everywhere; fast; very good screen; lots of extras; sturdy, well-built and with lots of nice design touches
I dropped it 1 egg, because the battery life if you use it will last you about 8 hours, which is great if you only need 1 day of use out of it between charges. Batterylife could be a little better. If
Recharging port on the tablet is not placed well if you want to leave it on your desk propped up while charging it. If you lay it flat, you can get by with charging port where it is
Its so new there really aren't any good integrated keyboard case solutions yet. I have been checkign each week. We just got a keyboard this week, but it doesn't look like it has a charger for the note
None really. I do wish the USB port was on the left or right side. It is on the bottom edge, This put's a bit of stress on it if the unit is sitting in a tilted position. No big deal though
Monitor ALWAYS does auto search of the input. If you have two computers connected to this monitor then if one computer goes asleep the monitor will switch to the active one, even if you do not want it
