One thing I will say is that this thing is bloody heavy for a tablet.... It's also quite thick.
Yeah, the reviews I found said it was pretty chunky for a tablet, but that's to be expected when it's basically just a netbook without a keyboard.

I wonder if buying a refurbished unit is ideal then if the touchscreens were a bit flaky. I'd hope they would of fixed/revised that while refurbishing them.
