    Very nice tablet. Faster than my Win7 laptop in app switching and startup. Haven’t used it in office yet, I am sure it will bog down under heavy usage, but it is a tablet, under load it won’t outperform a full size laptop with 8GB RAM. Quad core 1.3MHz processor is very fast, and if you watch the resource meter, under load the processor actually ramps up to 1.82 MHz. for email, web, entertainment, office and other basic everyday tasks it runs beautifully. I am not a gamer, so can’t report that, but I saw other reviewers with positive results. HD video in netflix and Hulu are great with no lag or choppiness, even with an action flick (new Star Trek). sound was surprisingly good, didn’t get a chance to use headphones yet. Color was accurate and resolution is very high.
    This is a refurbished unit, so it has a few scuffs and minor scratches. The screen is flawless and I am currently testing the battery life. So far after over an hour it is still at 90% (with the keyboard attached) and I am using it to install apps and customize it. I suspect and hope that the battery was replaced as part of the refurbishment. With refurbished units battery life is often a problem because they aren’t always replaced, and over time they lose their run time.
    Keyboard is easy to use once you get used to the smaller keys. I have average sized hands and I can type on it. Keyboard is easy to remove and reconnect. It’s not magnetic, but clips. Just line it up and press lightly until you hear both latches click. Hold the button and pull straight off to release.
    Storage is minimum, I have 6GB free after Office and my apps. If you have the 32GB unit, expect to run out to get a Micro-SD card after you load all of the apps and Office. I have a free live account, so I am going to store everything on my Skydrive. Some people reported getting more storage after running all of the Windows updates. I haven’t done that you so we’ll see.

    After reading the reviews of the factory new ASUS tablet I was a bit leery of what may be some quality control issues at the manufacturer. When I found the Certified Factory Reconditioned unit for a MUCH lower price, I jumped on it in a heartbeat. I have purchased factory recon units from other manufacturers (from printers to air-compressors), and have never has an out-of-the-box DOA, or a short-term failure. Recon units probably were warranty failures originally, and the factory defects were corrected– but the unit is no longer “new” so it has to be sold as a refurb. This process probably means it has a higher level of quality control than the fresh-off-the-line new units (sadly, volume production creates a few lemons that pass the original inspections)..

    Like most tablets, the keyboard does not lend itself well to a touch typist, especially if you have fat fingers like mine. But if you were typing your Doctoral Dissertation, you’d want a real keyboard anyway. This is a tablet– surprisingly versatile, but limited in general computing application.

    As others have noted, the 32Gb solid state hard drive is somewhat limiting. I added a $13.00 32gb memory chip, and solved that problem, but if the 64Gb unit were available as a recon, I’d recommend the larger storage. I posted the Windows updates and loaded Office 2013, and was down to 3Gb of free space. Anything new will have to go to the add-on chip.

    The USB ports are (one standard on the keyboard, one micro on the screen) valuable additions. I prefer a mouse to a touch pad, and I have always thought a touch screen is best suited for e-reading or closing an app in the Windows-8 jungle. The micro-HDMI port is useful for TV display of photos or videos.

    I was perfectly happy with my aging laptop, but my old-man arms will no longer allow me to retrieve it from the back seat of the car when posting my travel journal. The 2# 8oz tablet was just what the doctor ordered (really– following shoulder surgery, I have a load limit!).

    I still carry the laptop on vacations, but it won’t get as much use as it once did.

    So far I’m glad I purchased this tablet, it has everything I need.
    No problems, works perfect, glad it’s a tablet / notebook, network connection is perfect, has a micro sd slot perfect, stays powered up for a long time. I’m glad I went with this instead of the surface pro.
