i have been reading a lot on this forum for this device.
Cannot decide what to do ?

pros :
1)9 incher light weight [compared with 10 inchers], portable
2)Fanless device
3)removable battery even extended battery available to increase backup
4)looks sleek
5)matte display

1)weak cpu - the atom
2)1 micro-usb , headphone port only , no HDMI - for more purchase port replicator separately.
3)win 7 starter - more money needed to upgrade to win 7 HP
4)intel GMA 500 limited capability to play HD, Full HD videos i doubt i can playback.
5)max ram 1Gb - cannot add more
6)Expensive and rare accessories [port replicator,case,battery etc]
7)only b/g wireless - no extended / enhanced N wireless capability [may not play 1080p streamed video with high bitrate]
(8) No client usb port for pc data transfer [Viliv x70ex has that capability]

I have purchased viliv x70ex already but it's yet to be delivered for me to test but i consider it as windows 7 incher wifi music player.

I have acer iconia w500 [NOT fanless] which limited battery backup but it does everything which a powerful tablet 'd do.I like it personally - plays back 1080p streamed over wifi even the streamed DVDs [did not try blu-ray yet]. the w500 is too bulky to be used as windows wifi music streamer so i am getting viliv x70ex soon.

I really need a windows 'portable light weight' device which 'd be fanless and power packed to play 1080p mkv/mp4 and music over wifi from my win laptop.The 7 incher android galore but the 7 incher windows 7/8 are almost non-existent with n wireless and 1080p playback capability.
1)ppl say that installing win 7 HP and adding powerdvd 10 makes it for smooth playback of 1080p mkv/mp4 - does it really ?

2)Can this device playback the streamed 1080p mkv/mp4 from a win PC over wi-fi SMOOTHLY ?

3)should i get this ?

Also i hate android OS whichever version is there - i simply hate the android crap.

cons weigh more than pros but i need the opinion of guys here to guide me
