    This table PC has been great. I love how i’m able to twist the screen without having have to turn the whole comp. The screen images are cool and sharp. Can’t say i’ve had any issues with this computer.

    I have 3 of these for my medical office. They have heavy use, but not abuse. Two of these have had the hinge fail (one after about 9 months, one at 15 months). I had the service people fix the first one (CompUSA), took about 3 weeks to get it back. I’ve now taken the second one apart. It says it has a titanium hinge, but what happened was that 2 screws on one side had the head pop right if. It’s held on by four of these screws.

    I really like these computers. Wish they had a better pivot mechanism.
