Agree totally with your review. The speed is really disappointing, especially since previous generation Atom chips were apparently faster (e.g. my Dell Venue 8 Pro and Dell Venue 11 Pro). I ended up buying a pack of these stick on pen loops ($6 for 6 or so on Amazon). they work great. The "loop" on the keyboard is very disappointing. I wish they had provided a real loop that covers the whole length of the pen. Be careful if you use the keyboard loop - mine ripped after 2 weeks of use. Otherwise, this is one of the best tablets out there. Really wish that they update it with a better CPU (but keeping the current battery life).
