Well I do not have one but based on the processor and the video I would say you can expect to run Office pretty well. HD video editing and encoding; not so much. 2 gigs is not going to be enough to run Windows 8 64 bit fluidly for any serious tasks. Overheating should not be a problem since this is a low-voltage processor. HD web content should run fluidly mainly because the screen is pretty low resolution 1366 x 768 does not tax the video card very much but will in my honest opinion make it unsuitable as a video editing platform unless you were to attach a full HD external monitor and the video card will struggle with that I am afraid. $350 is just not going to get you a full-blown production computer even in these days of plummeting PC prices. This is a multimedia and internet consumption platiform, kind of a tablet with just a bit more muscle and a keyboard. You can remove the battery and run it on "mains" as the Brits say.
