I am sorry, there is no nice way to put it. I have had the thing for 2 months now, and find about the only thing it is good for is playing movies. It is not even good to surf the web as you cannot load Java! I know MS hates that (preferring ActiveX), but unfortunately many sites use it.
I also cannot use Logmein, VPN, VMWare View, or even OWA! There is no hard client for VPN, and since RT does not do Java, you cannot use the Anyconnect. VMWare View has a client in the "store", but it does not work. It connects, gives you an error and then disconnects.
OWA is supposed to be Outlook anywhere, but it still does not load the mail. You can log in, and do nothing. Logmein wants $30 for the client, which is stupid! My wife has the Kindle fire HD and she can do Logmein for free! Why? Java again.
Then there are the old standbys for anyone who has to maintain a network. Nope! None work. I tried the Jailbreak, but apparently MS has gotten wise to that one. It BSODed me at first, and now just does not work. SO I am stuck with a very expensive paperweight that I can play movies on.
Oh, the final insult is of course Windows 8. It has no concept of "closing" a program, so start enough of them, and you zap the battery real fast. Which kind of defeats the purpose of a tablet (at least one major part of it).
Since the RT does not do HD (yet), I see no reason to pay for an over priced, under performing, paperweight. I can do a lot more with the Kindle Fire or any Android OS device, and they are not even Windows!
On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this one a 2. It gets one point for coming bundled with MS Office - Student version of course, no Outlook.
