You can read the Specs for this device yourself. I installed Office 2010 Professional and it runs great. The touch screen is very responsive. Any stylus that can be used on an IPad works for this PC. I am writing this review with a stylus using the Windows 7 touch features. This allows you to handwrite on the screen. With the captive touch screen for writing, I noticed writing works best if the writing screen is as least halfway down the screen so other parts parts of your hand are not touching the screen.
The EXO Ul is really neat. I have the Windows 8 developer preview on another PC and really like this EXO UI much better. There are not a ton of apps available but you can put any website or program from your computer in the UI. There are customized icons you can place on the home EXO screen that when open tap them you go to another screen where you can place more apps.
When I started my Skytab the first time there were lots of updates to do, but it did not take long. The Skytab is pretty fast. Programs open quickly and the EXO UI is fast.
I have not tried the camera- I really have no need for it. The computer itself is very sleek. It does not get hot. The battery life is about 4 hours depending on what you are doing. It is about the size of the IPad and weighs about the same. Someone mentioned in another review the delay when you turn the Skytab, there is a delay of about 2-3 seconds.
For anyone trying to decide, I would recommend this PC.
If your just want games buy an Android or IPad.
This is a full Computer.
Great windows tablet
What i like most about this is the HDMI port and amount of hard drive space. I can connect it to my tv and use it as a monitor.
The fact that the skytab comes preloaded with note taking programs is awesome. Not only does it have a program for taking regular notes, which it can convert to text, it also has a program that reads math language. I’ve been able to use it to do differential equations with. It doesn’t give you the answers, but it does allow you to write the problems fairly easy. The tablet even recognizes cursive.
The Screen is very responsive, even with out a stylus. It has two full usb ports on the left and a micro SD slot on the right side. Although it does have a fan in it, it sucks the air in and blows it out through the sides and not the back. So, there’s no problems of over heating like with laptops. It has blue-tooth built in. Which makes it very easy to sync up with a wireless keyboard for typing out papers.
It is slightly heavier than an ipad, probably half a pound, and it is thicker. It will not fit in cases designed for ipads.
You don’t have to have apps because it runs windows 7. However, it does have exo pc II which does run apps.
I wish skytex would make a case for it. Currently i’m using the kensington universal pro. It fits in it okay.
Overall I’m very pleased with my purchase and really glad i bought this over an ipad 2.
