i use it 90% of the time in one place so it's easier then a desktop screen is good, sounds okay

not sure of the point of a touch screen when the keyboard and mouse are attached and work faster, the new windows 8 is hard to get around why change this that much. only had i a few weeks and it's already saying low memory !!! what with only running...

It's brilliant all round, when you have had a tablet before getting this V5 touchscreen and a decent mouse along with the touch pad, It's brilliant to use and play .

I should have chose the core i3 version for more speed, But no problem.
