    This thing is nice, so far the only thing I am not liking is the keyboard is not back lit and I find I have to click on the trackpad more than once sometimes, like it doesnt register a click when I am on a link or whatever. If anyone has any questions let me know and I can try my best to answer. I got this for $250 off craigslist, the guy was short money for a bill and needed it asap so lucky me!

    How is writing and drawing on it? Does pressure sensitivity work on apps like that are not by Samsung?

    I just tried the default note app an it didn seem to make a difference between putting more pressure or not

    Really? that's a shame. There is also a default Samsung android app that it should work on (10:18 in the video). That's why i was wondering if any other apps support it.
    Thanks for checking.

    I returned mine. The performance of the ARM processor was just too sluggish. Scrolling a webpage with all of the jerky motion and hesitation was horrible. Waiting to see what the Pro version has to offer except I think Google is having a hard time getting Android apps to run reliably on Intel chips.
