    Liking it very much. I really like OneNote (full version) and annotating on PPT's. The i5 is faster than I expected.

    Pluses:
    - PortableApps work great
    - Bittorrent sync works great
    - Camtasia (screencasts) works great
    - VistaSwitcher works great as an alt-tab replacement
    - external monitor worked fine as did Synergy for keyboard mouse control fronm another PC

    Quibbles:
    - managing battery life
    - Dropbox (desktop, not the tablet version) prevents sleep and kills battery
    - looking for a way to disable/enable the attached keyboard (I may get a 2nd bluetooth to use while I'm drawing)
    - looking for a way to turn off (and quickly turn on) the touch interface -- I'd like to do this when drawing
    - would like the docking station

    Welcome, it seems like the sp3 has the same problems as the first one.
