Unfortunately this tablet isn't the fastest or has the best screen compare to the ASUS TF Infinity or the Ipad 3+
I have the 32 GB version that I bought off Woot a couple months ago. First, I have run up to 8 apps at once with this device. Email, Evernote, Comixology, Chrome, Firefox, Hulu+, on and on without a hiccup and pretty quick. For the exception of premium video services, these can be run in smaller windows on the same screen.
As someone who does a lot of research, the window switcher is amazing. Browse an article on the web, copy the URL, switch to Evernote, paste , back to browser (Evernote autosaves), copy text with stylus or finger, back to Evernote, paste. Did about 10 pages of data this way and it was almost as fast as using a laptop.
As for the screen res, I hear people say this a lot, but have never really heard a good, everyday argument for it. Who's doing heavy Photoshop on a tablet? Yes, retina displays are awesome, but this display is pretty good. Great? No. It plays my ripped movies (which I keep on a separate MicroSD) fine as well the premium services such as CinemaNow, Vudu, and Netflix.
Can't say enough good things about this device. Very happy.
