Pros lightweight, portable
Cons dell stage software. No way to change links to itunes or firefox. Stuck with dell stage music stage software and internet explorer as links. However, you still can utilize the other programs, but cannot use the convenient links.
Summary I've only had the tablet for 1 day...just working out the kinks.
Pros I made a switch over from a Dell Inspiron 1525 to a Dell Inspiron Duo, and its just as good. I like that it has a touch screen, great size for people that are always on the road, perfect for organizing pictures and music.
Cons Not even a week after I got it, It started beeping. I looked in the hand book and it has beeping codes. Mine beeped 7 times, it said my processor failed. I turned it off for a couple of days and turned it back on and its working perfectly fine now.
Summary Overall its a great computer. But they might wanna fix a few things like the false beeping codes. Obviously my processor did not fail and then come back to life.

Pros weight- very portable and easy to carry one handed.
flip sceen- the screen rotation is a very well built hinge, it locks into place well.
speed- i was suprised to find that it is very quick and gets the job done well.
Cons internet explorer- when typing into internet explorer, there is a short delay before your writing appears. however any other internet works fine (google chrome)
usb flap- athe usb flaps are hard to close
Summary Nebook or laptop?- Some people say its a convertable laptop, some say its a convertable netbook?
i think, the size is definitley the size of a netbook, however it definitley has the capabilities of a computer or laptop. It runs Windows 7 Premium, whereas normal netbooks run a scaled versin called windows 7 starter.
Tablet- tablet is very simple, however its dell duo stage gives extra apps, there is no pp store, although you have full access to internet, which allows ou to play games. A a tablet, you can do everything that you can do as laptop mode.
This product is snappy, do not listen to people who say its slow and sluggish. They are wrong, from my use, it serves its purpose well and is quick and efficient.
LOVE IT, BUY IT,!!
Pros Love the solid feel, comes standard with Windows 7 Home premium. Does what it says. Great picture. Nothing unexpected.
Cons Heavier then you realize looking at it. Hard to find a case. Software tends to run slower than you are used to on a regular laptop, but then remember this is basically a netbook.
Summary As a normally early adopter (yes it drives my wife nuts!) I do actually like the Duo. It really feels solid and sturdy. The screen is great, as long as you have a good angle...kind of works like a privacy screen. For grins I ported Android 1.6 on it... runs really fast so maybe Android would be a good future for this product. I would love to see Dell continue to update the software for this and iron out any bugs. I'd love to have more tablet specific software out there. The ability to quickly resize all of the icons and menus for your fat fingers would be great too. The best thing about this is that you have the ability to make use of the vast world of windows compatable software vs the limits of the App store...Have had this since the 8th of Dec (thanks Dell for releasing them early), an am still enjoying it. Would an SD slot be nice, sure, but a usb drive works fine if necessary. The only reason it seems slow is because I normally use an XPS system. The ability to have both the tablet and a keyboard is a real plus. As a foray from a major manufacturer this is good and should only get better... There are those who just don't like dell, [insert any big brand name here]. But I've had pretty good luck and I tend to buy almost all refurbs.
