Yes, I would recommend this to a friend, if that friend was not a power computer user. This is more for the casual user of computers/tablets. I would also recommend this product to someone looking for a convertible ultra-book at a reasonable price. It seems to have a slower than I would like response time. However the display is very nice which, for me, compensates for the slower response times. The apps I am using all run smoothly with no major problems. Also, this unit is not too heavy to carry around. The tablet sits nicely in the keyboard, and the fixed angle is fine. However, they need to do some improvement to the keyboard, in my opinion. Does not function as well as I am use to when compared to other keyboards. All-in-all, this would be a good, but not great buy. I am not sorry that I purchased it and hope to use it for many years.
