How are the temperatures? Is it throttling at all?

At the end of the day, if it's not as advertised then you should be entitled to a refund or replacement, but I'd double check that it's not an...

Personally, I'm going to wait until there is a greater range of Z170 motherboards available, because I'm unconvinced that paying the thick end of 200 for a motherboard offers an acceptable...

Perhaps something like this "vertical" mouse? I think they're primarily designed to relieve RSI-type symptoms, but might help your good lady. It appears that they offer a 14-day trial too.

For all of it's faults, Win 8.1 was actually pretty good for tablets, and I agree with loftie that Win 10 feels less suited to tablet use than 8.1 did. That said, I was using my Linx with a mouse...

I reckon that'd be cutting it a bit too fine, personally. Windows could take up a quarter of that, and games can weigh in at 30-50GB, so you'll struggle (and that's before worrying about...
