Now that I owned this little marvel for two weeks I finally gave it a go and test it on the road. First, it is small, fits anywhere a great alternative to the just tablet computer or regular size laptop.

I especially like the 360 feature which allows you to use it as a touch tablet or simply a display. It is not the fastest in terms of processing power, but it will definitely do the job. Here is the configuration:

Intel® Celeron® Processor N2840
Windows 8.1
2GB DDR3L 1600MHz (Memory is not user replaceable)
500GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial ATA)
Intel® Integrated Graphics

WiFi works great, above all it is quiet since there is no fan in the actual machine. The screen is amazingly bright and crisp, the keyboard is very user friendly since it has regular size keys. Given the amount of equipment to port around for an effective demo presentation this is a great substitute for the regular size laptop.
Once the screen is turned to be used as a tablet the keyboard is disabled so it does not disturb any operation on the touch screen.
The regular price is $379.99, however, Best Buy had it on sale for $269.99, much cheaper than a regular size tablet or a laptop of equal size.

One note to the specifications, There are two models on sale 500GB HD and 32GB HD; Walmart has it on sale once in a while - but it is similar to the Chrome book concept - only 32GB hard drive the rest is in the cloud, so make sure you read the specs before you excitedly buy it because of the low price.
