        Answer

        This was bought for my daughter to use in college as her standard sized laptop was too large to easily be carried around on a daily basis. Since Microsoft Office 365 was the standard used by all departments on campus, an ipad or android device would not have worked very well. So far there have been no issues loading and running Office or connecting to various wifi spots. Also, in tablet mode it makes a pretty good e-reading device for digital textbooks. My daughter also says the keyboard layout is more comfortable to use while typing than my slightly smaller 10" tablet. We compared the keyboard size to a Surface and they seem about the same overall.

        Answer

        This entire answer is IMHO after buying and returning one. Read my review of it. For the most part they didn't waste money on unnecessary stuff. It's very efficiently designed and uses technology that has reached commodity pricing. It's really brilliant but one FATAL flaw. The touchpad is too cheap and renders it unusable. I wanted a 1080p or better display with good network and full windows that I could use kind of like a cloud terminal. Cheap enough that if I ruined it I could buy another, They cut things of no use to me like high powered processor. I needed enough to run Windows and pump hivres display bits in and out of one app st a time. That doesn't take much so it can be cheap

        the old w6100 uses an old version atom processor Z3735F the 7100 uses a newer cherry trail x5 z8300 which is smaller so it runs cooler the performance is similar but the graphics are a little better on the newer chip

          Answer

          It is one of the newer USB connections. It is USB-C, so you will not be able to use one of your other charging devices, unless it is USB-C.

          Are there any other options for word and excel other than the subscription that work on this tablet   (2 Answers)

            Answer

            Hi Sam, I'm not sure if Office is sold as a one-time purchase anymore since they like to push the Office 365 Subscription. However, you can use Office in a web browser. Just log into the mobile versions of Word/Excel/PowerPoint. If you have a hard time finding them, I know you can access them through the OneDrive website. Another solution would be to install OpenOffice (free open source office suite) onto the device.
