    Vista and Win7


    The Atom Z3740 in this little guy is really amazing. I just got one last week and I am impressed - and not only by the CPU. 11hours of battery is excellent too and the screen and speakers are really very good for a tablet.

    I have used it now for 3 days installing 8.1 and all the updates, Office, Windows Live, a whole set of programs, made all my usual settings and 3 images (you never know), tested all kinds of outboard devices on it, etc. - and I still have 60% of power left from the initial charge. It appears that the CPU uses only 2 Watts. That beats any modern Pentium or modern Celeron - even the RISC processors. And that CPU is very fast - not an i7 but feels like an i3.

    Pretty obvious what "personal" means.

    That is distinct from just having a terminal. The tech Corps would love it . It puts them in control. All that information gathering. targeting, drming ( if that is a word ) - constant income stream. Information about their citizens will also be available to foreign governments. I wonder what they will use it for.

    Welcome to the future. Just a little bit of history repeating. ( Thanks Shirley )

    Isn't google more guilty of privacy violations and information gathering?
    It is difficult now to buy any software that does not have activation limits.
    Subscriptions are a pia.
    At least Windows can be installed endlessly on the same machine (no activation limits)
    A media tool I bought is now warning that it has been activated too many times and will be deactivated
