This is a super tablet! Battery life is ridiculously long with its huge battery (unplugged with my normal workload it lasted 5 days and was still at 48% power before I plugged it back in). Performance and display quality leave nothing to be desired. You feel like your working on a high end laptop with the power and RAM to multi task and run large applications. The only reason I can't use it as a laptop replacement is due to basic tablet design itself and lack of a real hardware keyboard but that's the nature of the beast. I keep mine plugged in next to where I sleep and use it mostly when I'm in bed whenever I need to do light work, access other systems, check something on the internet, read an eBook, etc. With the large amount of RAM and fast processor I leave quite a lot of apps in an open state sometimes for months at a time. It's as close to "epaper" as I can get right now, always on, ready with exactly what I left on it when I put it down. I develop Android application and test some pretty exotic software from vendors. I left an application with a serious memory hole and some caching issues open on it for about a month and a half continuously (forgot it running in the background). It did lead to an OS crash (I will firmly classify this as my (and Android's) fault). The built in recovery on the tablet worked like a charm...I was back in business within 10 minutes of the reboot and factory restore. Quality hardware and software!
