Being able to swivel the screen 180 degrees is beyond handy. I can literally sit on the couch with the family and the tablet isn’t any bigger than a standard paper notebook on my lap. This is a handy feature for a writer who might find themselves anywhere in the world, and where adding a mouse or an external keyboard would not be an option.
If I had a complaint, it would be that the tablet comes loaded with Microsoft Works. I didn't realize Works was even still around. I hate it, but I can't find my copy of Word to uninstall the one and install the other, but it will take time. In addition, the Symantec security software shorted out somehow and I couldn't get to my Yahoo mail page. It took awhile to uninstall Symantec, but I finally got it done and the problem was gone. I've also tried to use the system restore (due to the Yahoo mail problem, before I realized it was a Symantec issue) and it did not work. I'm still not sure why.
On to Gateway Tech Support: Wow. I got through after a ten minute wait. Which, as most of you know, is not a long time to be "holding." I got a person who was helpful, not sarcastic in the least bit, and best of all, an American. I personally detest getting tech support of any kind from people in another country when our own country has such high unemployment. To me, having techs in North America is a huge selling point. The guy actually helped me – on the first and only phone call — (Symantec issue) and I was off and running again.
I give this tablet PC five stars, or ten stars, or whatever type of star system you want to think of when you think "Maybe I should look into this."
