Pros Beautiful display
full version of Microsoft Office
Excellent WiFi connections
Upgrade to Windows 8.1 which is a big improvement over 8
Excellent speed opening programs
A real operating system not a glorified MP3 player
Fast Boot time
Cons touchpad is flaky
battery life is less than you would expect, but adequate
Summary I've used Android tablets and iPads, the price of the iPad is ludicrous and the lack of a real operating system with a file manager is a problem for Androids. The Asus TF600's fast, beautiful, bright display and low price make it a winner. The cost of Office pays for the tablet.
Pros If the tablet works then I suppose it could be an ok tablet.
Cons If your tablet malfunctions for any reason, the horrible repair experience will leave you stuck with a defective product and frustrated with a company that can't or won't repair your product and refuses to send a replacement or give a refund.
Summary Check the BBB's evaluation on Asus. They give this company an F because factory defective products aren't repaired or replaced leaving the customer to bear the loss.
Pros - Easy to use.
- Excellent support for multiple user accounts.
- Battery life.
- Good sound and screen.
Cons - High power drain in standby (lasts less than a week)
- Currently not possible to sync gmail calendar.
- Only supports a few video formats. VLC for RT should fix that in a couple more months.
- Citrix app does not work in most setups.
Summary Bought the tablet in January 2013, and it's software has improved a lot since (altough Gmail ActiveSync support stopped, which is a bummer). Easy to use, responsive, and basic Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) is included in the purchase price.
Plays in a different league than Android and iPad, because it runs with multiple user accounts and has the ability to easily edit Word documents on the road with the inbuilt keyboard.
