1. You do not have to worry about disk space with the SD card slot. Add a 128 GB SDXC card (I am sure it will take the bigger one even if they don't say so. I have seen other tablets, phones do that). Pick some amount of space for Win 10, partition it to a new drive with NTFS and then assign that drive to a folder in the C drive. That way, the Win 10 system will see that extra space as part of the disk where you can store programs and what not. And use the rest of the space for Android (and whatever file system it wants).
For directions & more info on volume mount points on folders, see Microsoft Technet site [microsoft.com]. ~sanders
2. Also, most of these Win 10 tablets (even American made assuming there is some so called) seem to suffer from a quirk in the OS. The OS shuts off many devices to conserve power and they seem to fail to wake up at the proper time leading to "My tablet would not wake up from sleep" syndrome and you have a eWaste or eJunk in your hand. To prevent this from happening, go to device properties and look for a tab called power management and deselect a tab that says "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". And this takes care of the dead while sleep problem. Yes, the tablet would consume more power and last less with each charge but a tablet that is working is better than a dead one.
3. I would keep the tablet plugged and do not allow complete discharge since the tablet may not recover from fully discharged battery. Again, some problem in the design or the OS.

I don't see why not. Only time I run into any compatibility with my Chuwi is with games due to the Intel CPU. Everything else works perfectly.

Also, the only negative for this tablet is that the dual boot OS kills space on the actual tablet itself so you end up with something like 5-7gb of available space for Android and Windows which is really bad. If this was a 64gb unit, then it would be a much better buy imo.

Wow that is depressing as hell. Just read an article on it. Intel Atom is the only interesting thing Intel has done in YEARS and now they are killing it off.

Intel is killing it off because the Qualcomm chips were dominating.

I picked up the 10" teclast with 4gb RAM and 64gb ROM. Very happy with it so far. Android on it is iPad smooth.

A shame, guess it didn't catch on. Personally, I have owned about 5-6 intel atom devices over the past few years, but I'm a bit of an odd duck

What did that set you back? I saw the Tbook for $180 but that seems too much to pay for a no name imo.

I'm guessing you can't format it to remove the dual boot and have just android running?

Are these running open android software or is it a restricted/locked down OS?

You can remove the recovery drive in windows 10 and that will give you more room, but it will screw you over if you ever need to do a system restore.

As far as wiping the whole partition, I have never tried though I imagine that Windows 10 could be wiped with a custom room, but someone would have to develop it.
