The 1,920 by 1080 resolution is great for movies (and means you'll keep the DPI and zoom settings up, because while text is crisp, clear and smooth it can also be a little small on the 10.6-inch screen).

While it's a beautiful tablet, we're going to cut right to the chase with what we don't like here: the user interface and the display.
