Just making some public notes on a few of the things I've observed with this thing after six weeks with it. Initial disclosure: I am apparently the only person who has received a working version of this tablet. I didn't do anything special to receive this honor; just luck, I guess. I probably should have played the lottery instead of buying this tablet. That said, I like it. I bought it because my old DV8P got lots of use for OneNote, Outlook, Kindle, and Chrome. Probably not much else. But the pen was never good enough for my expectations; it never matched the old Wacom stuff for me, so I was eager to get something better. Plus the 2GB RAM thing always seemed too small for my terrible multi-tasking / multi-tabbing habits (more on that later). And then there was the screen: the 1280x800 resolution messed with web sites more than I could tolerate. I installed a "zoom" function for Chrome that helped; but it hardly matched having a higher resolution (more on that later, too). Initial / continued observations: - Form-factor works pretty well. Darn near identical to the old DV8P. Works in one hand fine. Not as thin or sexy as many newer tablets, but it's acceptable. - Screen resolution fixes that issue. Yeah, Windows isn't awesome at scaling, but it's good enough. Mostly, I have zero problems with web sites not fitting right anymore. Nice! - Pen is awesome. Not sure if it's as good as the old Wacoms - the feel is pretty different - but it's SO much better than the old DV8P thing, I'm thrilled. I'm eager to get a good matte screen-cover to give it the feel that I like. - Touch is excellent. Maybe not quite iPad but pretty close to a good Android. And the switching between pen and touch is plenty good enough. - Performance is fine. Not much of a performance improvement over the old DV8P noticeable. But once it's fired up and "settled in" it seems more stable and consistent - especially switching apps. But it takes a LONG time to fire up and settle in with all the stuff I have loading. I could clean it up; but once it settles, CPU rests at 1% and only changes when it should. With Outlook 2016, OneNote 2016, Kindle, and Chrome with a few tabs open all running (plus Mouse without Borders, Task Manager, DropBox, Qsync, OneDrive, ESET, Dell Update and other stuff), CPU is bouncing around 10% with memory at 80%. Not bad. Updates and issues: - Somewhere in my first couple of days of updating stuff, it borked the thing where auto-rotation stopped and the Win10 button for rotation went away. I searched and waited for a decent fix (clearly a simple driver issue); but finally just defaulted the thing and started over. All updates since have been fine. - After the above, I turned on System Restore; I wouldn't have done that in the past for fear of a performance hit, but it seems fine. I haven't had to use it yet, so hard to know if it'll serve me should I get hit again. - I've since installed all the various updates as they arrived. The recent BIOS update (Feb 10?) seems to have improved the performance a bit. Basically, it seems to be a bit snappier to respond to things like logins - it had a couple seconds delay to the unlock screen that seems much less now. - It gets stuck in a weird "not on / not off" state now and then. Pretty annoying. With the screen off, I hit the power button and it stays dark. So I hold the power button down for a while and it finally does this "slide to power the device off" screen. But there seems to be no way to get back IN without a reboot. And often it doesn't even power off from that power-off screen; I just have to hold the power button down until it finally shuts off, then hold the power button again until it turns back on. That seems to be happening a LOT less in the last couple of weeks - since the previous bout of updates. I'm hoping this latest bout improves it further. I seem to have also got less of the problem if I use the Windows button to wake it back up instead of the power button. TBD. Thoughts: - Hard to say if the 4Gb RAM makes a difference in performance. I'm surprised to even think that. But the CPU isn't really too robust, so I'm not sure there's a lot of multi-tasking going on. Basically, it's a bit smoother changing apps and stuff, but otherwise doesn't perform much different than the DV8P (2Gb RAM) once focused on a given app. - The latest and greatest MicroSD stuff runs pretty well. Not quite as fast as the internal storage, but pretty darn good. So I moved a bunch of large storage crap - portable apps and such - from my DropBox to Qsync since I can store than on the mSD. Plus backups and movies and music. All runs well. Nice.
