I got one from the US for my Mother off as she bought an iPad thinking it was a Laptop replacement, ended up never using it and went back to her Laptop. It's basically a fully featured Laptop but also a tablet, which finally makes sense of Windows 8 and switching between the UIs. It has everything you'd want for a Laptop replacement and battery life is great, I mean the Laptop my Mother had even as new only ever got 3 hours and towards the end she had to keep it plugged it or it died in 20 mins. So for her being able to use it for 6+ hours without charge is amazing, though she doesn't ever do anything intensive. The keyboard Microsoft made for it is great, the mouse pad on it is great, the device is light weight, thin and has every feature you'd want from both Laptop and Tablet. The screen is great, the speakers are great and everything about it is really top notch! I'm really impressed by it and I'm obviously comparing it to Laptops in the price range and I think it's better since it can be both Tablet or Laptop, has every feature and there are no compromises. If Microsoft can make these at a lower price point, I think they're what people actually want from a Tablet because people like Windows, they're used to it and IOS is useless and has no functionality what so ever. I always see people using their Laptops over their iPads as a result of IOS being so restrictive. So this device if cheaper would cut out the iPad and give people what they wanted from Tablets in the first place. Just wish I bought it for myself now lol.
