I think yes. But what kind of work? Microsoft Office etc?
Yeah the usual word, excel and powerpoint presentations when meeting clients. Outlook for emails.

Watch videos for entertainment when travelling and light gaming in the form of very old school RPGs and civ style games. that's it

Yes it should be able to replace your ultrabook but u might consider a bit more as this is also an ultrabook aka tablet, will this upgrade be better than your current ultrabook and will the size of the screen matter as this is an 11.6" some ppl might find it small.

Cheers,
Ben.

This might be able to answer your question:

Er. For the folio version it's a keyboard case and for the dock version a case for the tablet is included. You can search it up or YouTube it for unboxing it review.

If you buy the folio version, it comes with a keyboard case & if you buy the keyboard dock version, it comes with a case.

If u want other I only can find this Qoo10 w700

Hey guys,

Does anyone know how to lock and power off the w700 screen while still being able to play music?

i.e. equivalent to turning off and locking the screen on the iPhone with the top-right hardware button; only the screen is off and locked but your music/browser still active.

Thanks.
