I bought the tablet at Microcenter a few days ago (Merry Christmas toy early for me!) Seems to work OK, as advertized. The documentation is awful, no hardware or software user guide. For instance, it has HDMI out, but I don't know if audio is available. I added a 16gig card, but I don't know if I can move or install apps onto the card. Anyone else farther down the learning curve?

Update:

I found my HDMI cable and connected to the TV. Sound is included on the HDMI.

Update:

There is an undocumented blue LED, I suspect it is a camera indictor. I will check on that.

I assume they bought it at Microcenter, you should take it to the tech support center at your local Microcenter store. They are pretty good, they should be able to set you up for a login to your tablet. When you get home, you will need to connect to your home WiFi, so ask them how to do that before you leave. Good Luck!

To connect to WiFi, drag in from the right side to pop out the charms menu, then tap the gear at the bottom (settings), then tap the five bars on the bottom left to bring up the list of available wireless networks.


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Update September 2015:

Installed Windows 10 via "Get Windows 10" app. Install went mostly OK, a minor glitch was resolved. WIndows 10 running well for about a month. One major benefit that I have not taken advantage of yet will be to create a recovery USB and delete the old Windows 8 internal recovery partition. That should save a few gigs of internal storage.
