"A great everyday tablet computer"4.5 starson by itsllamapowered
Pros: Great design and form factor, a great system with good features, a great portable machine overall.
Cons: Dell applications are pretty useless & battery life could be better.
Summary: I am really pleased with this machine. After looking at the likes of the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab I decided to go for a Windows system and am really happy with this. I chose this over other tablets because I wanted to use my system as a PC with my software and also to manage my files - all of which the more specialised tablets are unable to do properly. I didn't like the way that the other tablets on the market seem geared to specific 'apps' rather than everyday integrated use - you couldn't replace your current portable with an iPad for example but this Dell is perfect.
It comes with a full copy of Windows and even though I soon disowned the included Dell software - which is practically useless in my opinion - I am very happy using Windows 7 with its native touch components. As soon as I move to something more intensive I can simply flip the screen and continue with a mouse and keyboard - this gives you a lot more flexibility and ways to use this machine.
The battery life is not great but its not a huge problem personally. It is also a bit slow when lots is going on but no more than any other netbook.
Overall I am very pleased with this machine and would highly recommend it.
