YouTube also has some interesting clips of the w500 running Windows8, which seems to markedly improve the touch screen scrolling etc.

We got this device in order to:
1. Link up to the TV via the hdmi able to screen videos, photos etc.
2. Read ebooks at home and on the move.
3. Check emails on the move.
4. Word process (we have WORD 2010 installed, even though I am aware of free and lighter weight versions).
5. Skype our far flung family.
6. As cover in case the laptop seizes up.
