    I will probably end up buying this, I like the Windows experience.

      1GB more ram would be good though. Windows 8/8.1 will eat your 1GB of ram leaving nothing for other apps. :(

    I also like the windows experience. thanks to their huge price drop I was able to afford for me a lumia 1520 and for my wife lumia 1320. its been smooth sailing ever since. the update from 8 to 8.1 I did in under 25 mins.

    the 1320 has only a DUAL core, 1gig of ram, 8gig internal and up to 64 gig external. with windows 8.1 all the apps and files can be saved to the external storage except around 8 apps that needs to be in the phone like music, video, fb messenger. its fast considering its ram is 30% used for the 8 apps and im satisfied with it. Microsoft hit the spot on the 8.1 update. I just wish we had cortana in asia.some friends did install a cortana by changing their location setting to US which is I think is not worth it.

    the above acer has quadcore which is more faster.

    with windows you really need to know your basic tech skills.

    • Correct me if i’m wrong, but doesn’t this tablet run on FULL Windows 8.1? That is completely different from the windows phone os which runs on your 1520 and 1320…
