Not so much the speaker. My long-term experience with it is with a Lenovo X1 Yoga.
It's just that Windows isn't built for tablet mode - so it feels unpolished and hacked together. It's still very much a keyboard+mouse operating system, so that touch usability is very sketchy. It works, but it's not intuitive nor natural unlike a dedicated tablet like the iPad. For absolutely basic simple tasks like reading a PDF document, it's acceptable. But to actually use it as an OS, it needs a lot more work. This is probably why the Microsoft Surface will not really do without a keyboard.
But just having the options and the ability to use it as such once in a while is really useful to me. Even in a classroom/seminar setting, to be able to pull up a blank whiteboard app and draw on the screen to copy whatever is written on the whiteboard by the lecturer is a big bonus in learning usability. Or those lazy moments watching Netflix, and leaving it in tent mode.
