I like it a great deal. I thought I might have issues with it requiring an internet connect for most things but that has not been a problem. I use my new Google Pixel phone either in hotspot mode or direct USB tethering. I now have unlimited data from Verizon Wireless. I have found that I seldom use a computer unless it has an internet connection.
I like the keyboard much better than my old laptop keyboard. The only thing I really miss is a delete key.
