I've found no definitive way of dual-booting this into the Windows version (the keyboard layout is also different according to the forums) but it may be possible in the future.

Shipping is whatever is normal, but I am a Prime customer so can't tell you from the listing I see.

Wow, that's an expensive tablet! Yeah it's got 4 gb of RAM, but so do a lot of phones now. This is running an Atom processor, but hey, it's got a flash looking keyboard that doesnt actually have keys....each to their own on this one but it seems very expensive for what it is.

Nope. Get a much better surface 3 for like 200 these days without these eMCC drives.

New wave of Chromebooks with android will finish these off.

It maybe popular with artists and writers but for me it's one very expensive tablet and would still be expensive even if it came with windows. Looks like a revamped miix 3.
#5
Very niche, but for those who want the unique paper & drawing tablet features, this seems to be a decent price.
#6
Now OOS, so I've expired this.

I have the windows 10 version and I would agree, unless you need the drawing and note taking functionality (which is surprisingly good) then this is no more than an expensive tablet. The keypad functionality looks very clever at first impression but is actually not that responsive, and the haptic feedback is annoying (I've turned it off). It is neither a very speedy nor a very pleasant typing experience. 4GB memory may be adequate but the processor is gutless, and in my experience the wireless connection speed has been poor - it is significantly outperformed by another laptop and an iPad Mini in the same household.

I appreciate that my experience has been with the windows version rather than the Android version posted here, but the hardware related issues will be very similar if not the same.

Good to here a real world point of view.

As an avid note taker and scribbler when I first saw the idea for this I thought it could be a great device to use in a wide range of situations but they ruined the concept with using such a poor processor and low memory for a high price. They even want £100 extra for the windows version with no increase in memory or power.
Really hope they continue the development but need to make a leap and stop messing around, we know that Lenovo and Wacom have the engineering,software and experience to make this device good from the start but seem to be going through the usual technology product cycle.
It needs a processor that can take advantage of the stylus and touch features to be used not just as a note taker but design tool with software such as adobe or other third parties. It needs more onboard memory too to store graphics, photos, software and the ever increasing digital content we have in our lives today.
A great feature would be that when you get home you could plug this device into your main more powerful computer and use it as the graphics tablet it is with tilt and pressure sensitivity. This is easily possible for them to do just like an app called Astropad can turn your iPads into a graphics tablet with your mac and use all the facilities in software such as adobe..
We can all but hope they will get an all-in-one device right sooner rather than later, when people will not be fed up of all the delays and small technological updates to increases profit margins from upgrades.

It looks like Lenovo and other manufacturers are drip feeding us their old technology. I bought an Asus T300chi last year which came with an intel type M processor, same one as they put in the macbook air. That's already a couple of years old now yet Lenovo appear to be fobbing us off with last years Atom chip. It's the same on the 15.6" laptops with their 1366 x 768 screen resolution. How long has full HD been out, 10 years ish. Do the manufacturers order millions of these processors or panels at a time and then push one, two or three year old technology onto the consumer. Technology is fairly cheap these days but it seems we are getting spoon fed with technology that's been superseded and paying a price for it as well.

Key word: Cheap.

Buy cheap, expect cheap specs. Simple.

Not really sure what you mean tbh. The Asus t300 chi was hardly cheap and from a processor point of view it used the same one as the macbook air which was hardly a cheap laptop to buy. The Asus was actually a very well made 2 in 1 laptop running full HD graphics with cost put at more mid range price for a convertible and certainly not at the bottom end from a quality point of view. My point was that the processor used was already a couple of years old from introduction and irrespective of cost manufacturers appear to be holding off on giving us the next stage of technology whilst palming us off with stuff that was available years ago for the same price, i.e. 1366 x 768 pixel screens. My wife has a 6 year old Acer running with those pixels. It was a budget laptop. Price is about the same today with same screen res although may get an i5 instead of an i3. Unless we are all fortunate to be rich or have loads of disposable income, then we have a budget and sometimes within that budget we will not get the specs we desire. I run a mac as my main laptop so I know what money can buy and not everything that is cheap is crap, just the same as not everything that is expensive is good. Not so simple is it.

I would not call these cheap either, this deal not so bad but if you look on pcworld they are selling the windows version for £579.99 and the chip is not much better than one I have in a £40 windows tablet...now that is cheap.

I've played with the Windows version of this and it is a lovely bit of kit, fantastically engineered and feels 'special'. The only issue I had is that the keyboard is not as intuitive as one with actual 'keys' in the same way a touchscreen keyboard is less intuitive. For people moaning about it being underpowered: don't just see 'atom' and write it off; the Z8550 is far more capable than the Z3735 most of you are comparing it to in <£100 rubbish tablets, it has 4GB of RAM, a decent amount of storage and a 1080p screen. My main issue with the model in this offer is that it runs Android which limits its utility massively. If they could drop the price of the windows model significantly they'd be on to something.
