The tablet has just one USB 3.0 port, and a Mini-HDMI port for video output.

On the rear of the tablet is an 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash. It also comes with a privacy-shutter to prevent eavesdropping..

The kickstand at the back of the tablet is sturdy and strong, but it only has one clickable setting. The angle can be adjusted slightly but not by a considerable amount.

The fingerprint sensor on the back works well but is sometimes difficult to find without fumbling around. Other security features includes a Trusted Platform Module 2.0 for helping to maintain data integrity.

The batteries can be popped out and changed in a flash. A neat feature is that each battery has a charge meter, making it easy to see how much charge is left on each battery.

The display is high-definition and sharp, boasting a 1,366x768 resolution. The screen has a capacitive 10-point multi-touch screen, which can even be used through thick gloves.

Even the keyboard has rubberized edges, helping the device stay safe from drops and spills -- and worse.

The tablet might be tough, but it's certainly heavy. It weighs 3.6 pounds, making the tablet slightly lighter than the average bag of sugar.
