I have read nearly every post in the forum and I understand there are still some bugs. I would like to get some opinions from you users who have one:

1. Are there any obvious browser problem or incompatibilities (lack of Java support, etc.) or does the browser seem to work on everything?
2. Is there any kind of RDP (Remote Desktop) or some other form of support? If not, has anyone tried to control another PC using VNC or some other web-base pc control software?
3. How is the battery life? Does anyone leave theirs unplugged for extended periods and, if so, how long does the batt last?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I can answer questions 1 and 3. Some websites I frequent are not supported like ESPN.com

After 2 days of use in the evenings the battery meter was down to 1 bar. The battery definitly does not last as long as the pronto. I also notice that if I don't plug it in overnight I am forced to reset the ipronto because devices set to work using RF no longer work.

In addition, if I use the power button to turn it off the sound quits working after a few cycles. If I let the ipronto turn itself off sound continues to work.

Despite the bugs I would buy it all over again. Philips will fix the bugs eventually.
