Very convenient size. Useful programmes pre-installed (eg Excel, word, one note). I use it as replacement for my netbook. I run my accounting package on it too.

The pre-installed mail programme is very basic. So, if you use a lot of email, to make the most of it you can install free programme "em client (which is similar to outlook)" which handles upto 2 email a/c free & Pro version offers more email a/c and costs very less.

Display settings you can resize to 125% to make it more readable. Startup & Shutdown are very quick.

Other free useful software i use are team viewer 9, kingsoft office 2013, foxit reader for PDF.......

I have uninstalled those that i dont use including norton backup, acer cloud etc.

On the whole 100% satisfaction in the 1st month of use.
To be a complete companion & laptop replacement it needs a portfolio case which includes a bluetooth keyboard and acts like a tablet case also. Currently this is not yet available for Iconia W4 at Amazon/ ebay/flipkart.

Battery gets drained after 4-5 hours of use as all windows 8 inch tablets have one micro usb port only which you can either use to charge or use it to connect your USB accessories. Once Bluetooth keyboard portfolio case is available, this battery will last longer, but on the whole battery is decent & probably better than other windows 8 inch tablets. I recharge when breaking for lunch.

Tablets will be a bigger market than PCs & Notebooks. So equally important as the product quality is the need to have excellent quality service centres in each city which can repair/replace the product perfectly incase of any fault. Samsung & Dell have very good after sales. This is my first Acer purchase so i have yet to check the quality of their after sales.

A small option to do more with the active page is missing. Android phones have an option outside the screen on left side for more options with the active page. Acer has made Acer touch software which needs more fine-tuning.

I also miss the widgets in Android. So if windows 8.1 could offer widgets & more desktop screens or start page screens it would be great.

Windows store is still young. Android comparatively has more excellent free software to install. In coming time windows store should be able to catch up.
