    Is it Gorilla Glass or any other type of scratch resistant glass? Does anyone know?
    I haven't been able to find any info on that.

    Give this virtual mouse a try when not using a mouse, it a onscreen virtual mouse for desktop mode. Sort of like having a touchpad except this appear on screen:

    A couple of questions:

    1. Why the Venue over the T100? Considering the ASUS option comes with the dock and Office (not sure if the Venue comes with the latter), I'm curious as to what this thing offers over the ASUS solution. Is it just because of the 8-inch display, versus the 10-inch one? Oh, and I don't see a frontal picture of your device, so I wanted to ask--is the Windows key placed along the long or short side? Since it's branded in portrait, I wondered if they oriented the Windows key that way as well.

    2. Are you sure this is 32-bit Windows? I saw that they list the Bay Trail as x86-64 architecture, so I thought I'd ask.
    All Bay Trail 8" tablets that have been announced all come with Office. This include Asus, Dell, Lenovo and Acer.

    Atom based tablet usually comes with small storage size, and being 32-bits OS helps to cut down the OS size. Also, this particular CPU cannot address 4Gb RAM so the advantage of 64-bits OS able to use more than 4Gb RAM is moot.

    Thanks for the awesome review. Pretty much everything I wanted to know.

    I am wondering if there is any other way to output the video signal apart from Miracast. Would something like a MHL cable (micro usb to HDMI) work with it? I am keen to hook it up with a FHD TV for movies.

    The processor is 64-bit capable (this is a completely new architecture and not the same as the old Atom processors). The reason all of these new Bay Trail tablets come with the 32-bit version of Windows is because, at present, only the 32-bit version of Windows supports connected standby (a cell-phone-like, always-on mode). Microsoft will be adding this feature to the 64-bit version of Windows in early 2014. I hope this clarifies why these tablets are using the 32-bit version of Windows. But you are right that the 32-bit version of Windows has a somewhat smaller installation size, too.

    For MaxHu: Walmart appears to only carry the 32 GB version.

    This is not true concerning 32-bit processors and 4GB RAM. PAE has been used to get around this since the days of the Pentium Pro. There are other design reasons why this tablet isn't using a 64-bit Atom.

    The virus threat is the same as full windows. Just treat it as such and make sure to download all security updates regularly.

    Windows 8 has some built in protection.

    Wow!! I just realized Google Chrome running on Desktop mode now supports swipe left and swipe right for page backward and page forward functions.

    Didn't use to do that in the past. I did download a few updates from Dell site and Windows a few days ago, not sure which actually contributed to the change.

    Thank you. This really is a great device. I got the 64 GB version and very glad I did. Used my printer, flash drives, plugged my BlackBerry into it and I have setup BlackBerry Link so I can access files back and fourth with ease between my Venue, BlackBerry, and Windows 7 machine all wirelessly. This is an awesome combo I have now. VERY happy with this decision!

    Also works with my BlackBerry PlayBook mini bluetooth keyboard flawlessly as well as my external 1TB HDD. I just don't know what more I could ask for at this point. Downloaded Chrome and I can mirror it with my Chrome Cast, and I'm still finding new and useful things I can do with it.

    Right now I'm study for a promotion for my employer (UPS). They gave me a CD with a training program to use. I ripped it to me Venue with my external DVD/CD Rom and now I can run it right on my tab, no laptop required.

    Needless to say, I'm blown away by the functionality of this little gem. Everyone that wants to be productive needs this tablet!
