Doesn't change that this AIO at this moment in time does not have this feature.

It's software... can be added.

Microsoft Office may be expensive, but it's absolutely the best on the market by a country mile.

OS completely aside, that tablet is a spec nightmare. The CPU is so over-specced for anything else in there it's just silly.

I am sure as time goes by that will change. It is actually kind of interesting to me. Maybe the future will be a place where Windows on desktop is closed but Android will also run on desktops and be open. Who knows.

Oh yes they can! They wouldn't say it was in retaliation for the Android AIO but all of a sudden Acer could find their pricing on the Windows licenses going up.
