a few quick questions:

(1) is the screen IPS?

(2) am I stuck on Win8, unless I wish to pay for Win10 upgrade?

(3) is it a bad idea to buy a 2013 tablet/laptop?

Thanks! Smilie

the price is good FHD, 8gb 256gb, maybe only the ssd is upgradable. It is a m-core Q4'14, think of it as a tablet convertible. I don't think it can't be beat with this price, I mean even college students don't use this cheap.

It's Windows 8 pro, though. Probably too late to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

It is an IPS screen based on reviews. Seems decent, but with some minor color issues.

I'm interested in replacing a venue 8 pro and this hits what I'm looking for. Anyone else have experience buying refurb from woot?

Decided to get one after thinking overnight. My laptop gets used for browsing, watching movies & light office work. Tablet gets ~7 hours battery life + ~4-5 hours with the keyboard.

This also comes with the Pro keyboard with trackpoint, along with 6 month warranty from woot.

Remember that this was selling for over $1000 and all reviews were based on that price point. This should be a fanless model. The keyboard is one of the best keyboards for laptops, Trackpad should be decent. It is a 1080p IPS screen (LG in one review) rated for 400 nits and all reviews say that screen quality is good.
