Steve , Letchworth General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Full version of Windows 8 with update to 8.1
Runs pretty much any Windows software you can throw at it, obviously performance is a factor in high-end apps.
Not the most fashionable of designs but extremely functional.
Bad points:
Start button on the side is slightly annoying.
Additional accessories expensive - pen and keyboard are very good though once purchased. The most recent software update sorts out a lot of the handwriting issues.

Simon, London General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic little tablet. The performance is amazing - runs full Windows incredibly smoothly. I have 2 user accounts...some pretty demanding desktop apps...as well as the new Modern apps and it still runs very fast and smooth. It even runs Dragon voice recognition software which, with free Office installed, makes it a great little portable productivity machine. The screen is top notch - any higher resolution would be a waste on this size screen. I like this size - perfect for checking emails, social feeds and the web on the sofa! It supports screen mirroring to my TV which means I can put video and web feeds straight on the big screen too. Battery life is excellent. SD card support means you can expand the storage easily and cheaply. Best tablet I have ever owned.
Bad points:
I'm struggling - a full USB port would be good but then an adaptor for the micro USB port costs virtually nothing and the device would not be so slim and light if that was added.
