Balky keyboard, sluggish responsiveness

Comment:
Very sluggish touch performance compared to real tablets. Keyboard doesn't support important functions such as some Fn keys (e.g., F4 in Excel to create absolute cell reference) or full right click options. Just feels balky to use, quite unpleasant. A real laptop with Windows is much nicer to use for an extended time.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

The BEST gift I ever received! This was a Christmas present from my husband. My duaghter had one and suggested he get it for me. She has had problems with hers freezing or not turning on (she got hers in October); I guess I've been lucky. My son bought me the keyboard for Christmas (which I HIGHLY recommend; besides making it easier to type, it protects the screen). Price is a drawback, but you can do ANYTHING you do on a computer with the SAME programs...not some scaled back junk!
