Would be great for anyone who would like to have a platform that they could play around with something like Ubuntu on. It doesn't require the resources that Windows does. It has some decent "Office like" applications built in. The newest version (14.04) is quite beautiful too.
Great way to start learning Linux. It is the future after all.
The best options for folks using Word, Excel & Powerpoint is using SkyDrive.
agreed! I prefer Google Docs for most of the stuff that I work on (using Zoho Writer for most items) but when I share anything with someone who is not a Google fool like me I just upload it to my OneDrive and convert it to a word online format. Guess MS has pretty much realized they were going to lose the battle to Chromebooks and decided the best way to possibly beat em is join em.

First of all, Ubuntu has really gone down hill since Unity, and Amazon, and that god awful Software Center. But back on topic, Linux support for this machine is very rudimentary at best. Not recommended. Which really sucks, because otherwise I'd buy it. As-is, it's a Windows 8 only device which is hopeless because W8 on 2GB of ram is going to be a bad time.
