Adorama great - returned the product
2 Star Review   By M on Adorama - Jul 19, 2013   

The product had some issues. You could see finger marks on the screen when you touched the back side. It didn't run quite right. But Adorama was very responsive and helpful. I wouldn't buy the S56 myself (after seeing it and running Windows 8 on it, I decided I'd rather have a touch screen anyway), but I'd do business with Adorama.

A great buy!
4 Star Review   By TSC on Adorama - Mar 26, 2013   

Excellent hardware and design for the price. Reviews suggested the battery life would be around 5 hours, but I was slightly disappointed to find it only lasting a bit over 3 during normal use. Not a deal breaker, but definitely something to consider
