It has the worst of windows 8 with none of the pros. And it lags hard, even when going back and forward in IE.
Stand by Battery life is miserable
You must not own, or have tried a Surface 2.
You cannot use it as a laptop replacement because it will not run all the apps that a regular laptop can. But it is too big in order to be used as a stand alone tablet.
Basically, my Lenovo miix 2 8 is more useful, since it comes with a full Windows version, and it's way more portable.
I enjoy using my 1st gen Surface Rt but I'm mainly enjoying the fact that I won it and it came with a touch cover. Can't say that it would have been worth retail pricing given the state of the app store.
I'm ok with RT and I'm not willing to shell out an extra $600 for the SP3 right now. Just wondering if better to go with the 64 GB since half the space is used up in the 32 GB version.
I am tired of waiting for surface..
At the very least this refurbished rt version could have been offered here..
