    ....for a family member still in high school

    While it certainly doesn't compete with my state-of-the-art iPad Air, this unit seems to have a considerable amount of functionality ...And I can get an exceptional deal on it

    Please share your experiences... ..God Bless :hat:

    I bought the 2014 Edition a few weeks ago before Amazon started charging sales tax for CT, and I returned it last week. For me personally, I didn't want a bigger version of my Samsung Galaxy SIII, I really didn't care for it. Again, it's all in what you feel comfortable with. After playing with tablets, I decided I want instead a 2 in 1 laptop that transforms into a Tablet if you need/want it to. I'd rather have the Windows platform instead of Android or Apple's operating system unless it's on my cell phone.

    Is the 'pen' thing more of a novelty?.. Or, do you actually use it very often?

    I used to S Pen once just to see what it was all about, then put it back inside it's holder and never touched it again. Definite novelty.

    The touchscreen is a big need in this instance.. Do they make a touchscreen tablet that's NOT Windows-8 based ?? (The nephew I'm buying it for would get thoroughly confused with that shit)

    has a front & rear facing camera.. But, apparently the "S-Pen" allows you to hand-write documents & labels (among other things)

    If it's as good as their smart phones, it should be awesome. Define "exceptional" and can you get two?
