An excellent mobile PC replacement tool. Internet, email on the go, photos, music, streaming video and audio. Everything like home but more compact. Keep in mind is just a tablet. Using the doc with a mini mouse and a keyboard is almost like your home...

Should have bought an IPAD


This tablet is junk. HP continues to rush their computers to market and wait for the consumer to do the testing.
