BTW, I successfully undervolted the cpu, cache and graphics by 50mV using offset voltage with the intel ETU
Helps with batt life AND performance (takes longer to throttle)

Also took it apart. You can replace the SSD and the wifi card!!! uses a regular Msata and wifi card.
$500 for a 1TB SSD on Amazon ....

But it comes with the top of the line Intel 7260AC card, so there is no upgrade to do.

Can you point me to the utility you used for the undervolt?

Edit. This one?

I'm happy with mine. Keyboard is not great but better than expected. just spent 2 nights straight installing windows updates lol.

  Yeah its the intel extreme tuning utility.

It will run as a service and remember your voltage settings.
That means you need to be careful. If you set voltage too low, the pc will crash and you may have trouble booting back up (because it will set your low voltage setting again)

I'm still at -50mV on graphics, cache and core and not a single crash, actually this thing has been impressively stable.
Might go lower.

  Do you have a link explaining this for the masses ?

  I wouldn't recommend undervolting to the masses. I will say I ran -65Mv and never had stability problems. It did help with performance on demanding apps too.

You have to set the offset voltage for graphics, core and cache separately. I ran -0.065 volt offset on each and it ran great.

Anyway, I returned both of mine. Battery life not good enough with the new devices coming out. Even surface pro 3 is only 40% more for double the batt life, much better design and faster to boot.

Anyways, no accessories left but they gave me two free VAIO laptop bags. Nice deal!

The laptop bags are a standard free accessory. And they're sleek, too. The 14-incher holds the Tap 11 perfectly and leaves room for accessories. The rubberized back keeps it from moving much.

The bags that I got looks like they are for 17" laptops, they're huge... not very useful to me so I'll just give them away.

Does anyone have any suggestions for cases/sleeves?
And can anyone tell me how to remove the stylus holder?  There's a little tab that snaps in but I feel like I'm gonna break it if I pull it out by force... a little disappointing that there's nowhere to store the stylus in the tablet...

Here are some cases/cover I found and purchased.

1. Protection Film (I picked entire protection one-tablet & keyboard)

  Yes you can, within 30 days of purchase.

  Is there a restocking fee if you changed your mind?

  No, all money back within 30 days.

  That' not what they told me. The receipt said 15% restocking fee when returned open.
They wanted to charge me 15% when I went to Houston store to return it. I was able to argue with the manager and he waived it. Said "it's going back to the other store anyways."

  Sony store refunds the entire amount if you take it back.

I kept mine, and I'm keeping my Surface Pro 3 too. They're different devices.

Especially with Console OS on the Tap 11, it's going to be my lounge tablet... Surface Pro 3 is just too heavy to enjoy on the couch comfortably.

Pro 3 on the other hand sits next to my MacBook Pro for productivity. When I need to go to a meeting or something, I don't have to lug my Retina MacBook with me... admittedly I don't use the stylus though.
