    Is it an excel spreadsheet or Docs to Go? Q10 and PB will have Docs to Go. I think the Docs to Go format is compatible with .xlsx. PC has to have some software that can open spreadsheet files or at least a viewer.

    Thanks grape. Not thinking that's going to work. The problem is when trying to open it from the email there is an error. Yes if it WOULD download I could use that to read it if the PC wasn't capable of reading it.

    You can't save the attachment to the PC? Usually if you right click the attachment it will bring up a "save as" dialog box instead of trying to open it and save it. Is it really big? That is weird. Do you have a OneDrive (Skydrive) account? Maybe you can upload it to your public folder with the Q10. Then open it with the Excel Online web app (boxes in upper left corner) or download to PC.

    I think it should be OK. It may be a little small (only a 10" screen and it will be a small keyboard) but that will make it more portable. If you want to add a larger keyboard and mouse, it will have to be USB wireless as there is no Bluetooth. It has HDMI out and maybe Miracast (you should ask HP before you buy) to mirror on a HDTV. It has a full size HDMI port instead of the PB microHDMI. Miracast would let you do it wirelessly. It is not particularly fast with the AMD dual core processor. You may need more than 2 mb RAM. Check with HP if you can add another 2 mb later (e.g. expandable RAM).

    2-in-1's are similar to this notebook. With those, you can detach the keyboard and use it as a tablet. You will probably be touching the screen a lot with the Windows 8.1 and reaching over the keyboard maybe awkward. Make sure you can return it if you don'r like it.

    I figured it out. Step 1: I went and purchased a Windows 8.1 table, set down and spent 6 hours redoing the 37 page excel spread sheet and sent it as an email attachment and something strange happened. It sent! Step 2: throw the Playbook in the trash. Step 3: problem solved. Step 4: tell you this Windows table sucks.

    Alot of people have had issues with Win 8 connecting to some peripherals (Praybook includest). It will be a holey new learning curve. I turned back a "high -end" notebook last year (after trying to get used to the GUI for 13 days), just because of Win 8. I was at the returns line at da local BB, and when the Rep. asked me why I was returning the unit, I said "Windows 8, it was a "load of ploppers", and he said, "well, we have classes right here for windows 8, " and he pointed over to a group of about 5/6 people (in the whole range of ages, from young n'eer do wells, to hipsters) being "schooled" on Windows 8. I told him " Youse just proved my point"........

    Now, MS is trying to "repackage" Win 8.xxx, to make it more user freindly to the Win xp/7 crowd (including the IT guys in most companies, they have been very reluctant to adopt Win 8......

    I haven't had much time to play wif it but will say this, the mail tile is a third-party app and haven't found compose email in it. Doesn't Sync worth a crap. Every time you move around things open or that stupid charm bar comes out. I just need more time with it I guess.

    Yeah, I was thinking that it was going to be a long learning curve, but its the same with my Z10. I still cannot figure out how to save phone numbers on the sim card. The Z10 loaded all my facebook friends into contacts. That is just pointless, un,ess you're between 13 and 30 years old. Very few of my facebook friends are people I need to actally phone, so the sim card is very important to me. I posted the question on the Z10 thread, but what they said didn't work. It seems that it shows some sim names I entered, but not all and when I re-enter those names and phone numbers, it says 'you already have this addy on your sim! Maybe I should just cut and paste this bi*ch session into the Z10 thread?
    Anyway, I figured its time for me to evolve with the new technology, so I'm taking these great leaps!
