Easy to set up
Right size for my cabinet
Screen is great. Battery last a long time. Fast. I hate to say this, but this is much better than the Surface RT (Tegra 3). This processor does the job. Night and day difference. Perfect size and play

Good performance
Not sure if i like the button for opening
