Wow aren't we the lost puppy, no I'm sorry that was rude. Ask your self what you want to do with this wonderful gift. If surfing is your only goal, then I suggest installing Opera as you main browser as it's the best right now. If watching movies is your goal then defiantly install MX Video Player along with the needed plugin codec arm v7. Then head over to icefilms.info to get some well deserved content. The Asus Slider is a wonderful little machine and you have a very intelligent and nice friend to buy you one. The things you can do with the Asus Slider are to numerous to list in this post but if you can give me a hint of what you would like to do with it I can point you in the right direction. As far as learning how to use the machine well common sense is your best friend, if you have ever used a computer before then you pretty much no how to use your Slider. You need to just play with it, don't be scared you can't break it, touch everything, touch everything you can get your hands on. A manual will not be able to help you, use Google if you have any questions.
