In a while I should take delivery of a replacment for my 2-in-1 Tablet which after a too short working life now has an unrepairable SSD. The replacement, a Cube iWork Ultimate 10.1, is very similar to my dead Quantum View as I am sold on the hybrid form factor (excuse the jargon). But despite being at the low end of the market it is an upgrade in a number of respects (except the cameras) so I wondered if someone with experience could comment on what differences in performance, etc. I could experience along with any dos and donts? I am going to have a lot to do so I want to be at least to some extent prepared.

It will be

dual boot with both Windows 10 and Android Lollipop installed --- will I find updates installing themselves, in particular Windows Anniversary and Android Marshmallow

64 not 32 bit OS, with 4 instead of 2 GB RAM ---- I understand my 32 bit software will still work OK but I will not get the benefit of 64 bit until I start installing 64 bit apps / programs

64 GB storage not 32 GB ---- a major factor in my buying decision, it is one of the few changes I understand quite well

although it has USB 2 ports there is one micro port which is (claimed to be) USB 3, but some users say it only has USB 2 charging power and data transfer performance

I must emphasise that I am not at all 'a power user' and despite years of experience (starting when the Sinclair Spectrum was launched!) my technical competance is exceedingly limited and very dependant on the help generously given by Bleeping and other forums.
