I have begun to HATE this thing; tablets are primarily media consumption devices. Google and ASUS are among the biggest players in this market, so I should not have to 'hack' install software in order to play Youtube content (esp since Google owns YT). Switching between apps can sometimes take tens of seconds.
I should not have to root my device to remove non-OS software.
I bought this on sale elsewhere but NCIX has sales too, just not when I bought. There is lots of cool apps for this tablet. I mean how many do you need anyway??? It's way less price than an Ipad and in my opinion far more user oriented. Your not limited to Ipads world. The screen movement is different than an Ipad but just as nice. The only thing I don't like is where the single speaker is located, the sound shoots to the rear. If you cup your hand to the speaker it is better to have the sound go to the front. It's adequate but could be better. But I would be using earbuds or an external speaker anyway. The docking station turns it into a notebook with added ram and battery, try that Ipad. Overall a good buy!
If apps are not that important to you, this is one of the best tablet you can get right now. Now with the Nexus 7 coming, it might lead dev to develop more apps for this resolution so the future looks bright. Overall, very satisfied user
