Have yourselves a Fantastic and Very Happy Birthday!!
Thanks! Technically it’s tomorrow but we’re gonna celebrate starting Monday since, you know, the weekend and all.
Picked up one of these just a couple weeks ago and I’m using it now.
I’m very happy with the purchase so far. Much snappier than the chromebook it replaced. I don’t use it as a tablet very often, but it’s fine in that mode I guess (but dang do I hate trying to use a tablet keyboard).
The small keyboard takes some getting used to. They squeezed some keys on that my Samsung chromebook omitted to save space. My fingers have gotten used to it already, with the possible exception of the itty-bitty right shift key, which I still sometimes miss.
I haven’t done too much gaming on it, but I did play The Walking Dead for a while with no issues.
These are great little machines. I bought one last year at full price and have gotten tons of use out of it. It is my primary machine for onsite client trips, and runs Visual Studio 2010 with no problem, allowing me to get real work done when I’m on the road.
As some reviews mention, it will NOT charge from a standard 2A USB port or any of the micro USB cables you might already have on hand. It really only likes its own original charger and cable. However, I have found this aftermarket charger works perfectly: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IJL8U86
Protip: Get a 64GB microSD card, then TrueCrypt it and set it up to automount at boot. This will protect your data if the card ever gets lost, but more importantly will trick Windows into seeing it as a non-removable volume so you can install software like VS2010 there.
I have the 32GB version, and overall, I really like it. As long as you’re not expecting to do everything with it that you’d do with a PC, and think of it as more of a tablet that can run a lot of Windows programs, you’ll probably be OK with it.
A few nits to pick with it:
It takes a really long time to charge. Really long. Really. I’ve heard that you can get a Samsung charger that will speed it up some, but I haven’t tried.
The micro-SD expansion slot is great to have, but the positioning of it is a little awkward - it sticks out a little on the right side, and is a little too easy to push to release by mistake, and just feels like it is not secure.
The USB 3.0 port is on the keyboard, so you don’t have access to it when using it as a tablet.
But overall, it’s a pretty handy device, and at this price, it’s a pretty good deal. As I’m sure others will point out, this probably doesn’t come with the free year of Office365, but not sure.
No Office Suite is a deal breaker
Just download LibreOffice for free and you’re good to go. LibreOffice came a long way and while it may not support the most sophisticated features of Ms Office, it does a very good job otherwise, and document formats are compatible with Ms Office too.
Does anyone know if you can use a stylus with the screen in tablet mode?
That really is a Pro tip. Would you mind walking us through how you did it a little bit?
Any tablet can use a stylus including this one.
I got this during one of there big Asus sales a few months ago. Just discovered the battery charging quirk myself cause i let the battery drain and i wanted to use it for some notes. i’m wondering if it will charge off the TF300’s adapter at the 15 watts it runs for the bigger tablet (they look almost identical).
I bought mine to test out win 8 and not sink too much money into it. course i ended up putting classic shell cause i’m so used to using the win7 layout and getting to the start menu at a moments notice.
All in all i’m very impressed and it’s my go to tablet now adays (I have the TF300 andriod which i wish the battery dock was interchangeable)
Bought one nov2014 at 80 clams more, still worth it! Wife wanted tablet but she never detaches it. Great little commuter for Netflix in bed, casual surfing etc…
Get Open Office, it works great and if you are used to MS Office the learning curve is minimal.
Does this thing comparable with wifi at all ? I did not see that in the description .
Looking for a device for my 7th grader kid to do his school works . Will this be alright ? Thanks
It would be a colossal blunder for a tablet not to ship with WiFi. Anyway from the specs:
Is it possible to change the OS to the latest android?
