"Piece of Crap"1.0 starson by dswpro
Pros: Small, light, who cares?
Cons: Poor Construction, fit, finish, NOT durable at ALL
Summary: I ordered a loaded one. Lots of RAM, 80 Gig 5200 RPM Hard Drive, Docking station, DVD Drive, extra battery and carrying case. I could not get the pen into the unit. the corner of the unit looked like it wasn't assembled correctly, or even closed all the way. I took the back covers off the battery compartment, drive compartment and I/O compartment. At least two case screws were cross-threaded and not seated all the way. The Pen entryway shiny silver plastic entrance seemed to be cacked, jutting some plastic into the pen-path. The keyboard detaches, if you can force the slider out of the way. I was afraid I would break the damn thing, it seemd so frail. The DVD drive they sent with the docking station was the wrong one. didn't fit. I ordered an extra battery. A second battery is twice as much as the first battery (WHY?) Mind you, to put the original battery into this bad-boy you have to attach it with a tiny screw. Who designed this? Then they don't bother to give you a small screwdriver to screw the battery cover on with. Pissed me off but good. The second battery comes with a lovely piece of plastic to push it into, but no charger base. Who cares, but why include the extra piece of charger? Just more crap for me to pay for and throw away. I fired the unit up. Couldn't get the pen to agree with the screen coordinates for more than 5 minutes after re-aligning the screen to pen controls, more than once. I finally jammed the pen into the blocked hole and sent the whole thing back. Let them get the damn pen out. This thing couldn't survive a stiff breeze, and didn't survive it's own assembly. Just Desserts:
I'm the IT director for a large medical center, and we're looking at hundreds of these things. Not anymore. Today I'm calling Panasonic, Dell, Acer, Toshiba, Gateway, and anyone else who has a tablet. Bye Bye HP.
