Having wanted a tablet with full windows 8 on it for a while now, I think I have narrowed my decision down a bit. Surface RT is a lovely TABLET with fantastic build quality and battery life, however my laptop is knocking on deaths door (and I won't be buying another one) so I would like a tablet with full windows on it. I massively wanted a surface pro 2 (wacom pen = amezzin photoshops) but its far out of my price range. Even the surface pro 1 is a hundred squids more than I want to pay and the battery life is poor. I have spent about a month trawling the interwebs, forums you name it, looking for something that might give me a similar experience to the surface pro but without spending any more than £300. £301 is too much.
So, I've arrowed it down to 3.
- Dell Venue 11 pro (atom version, refurb)
Screen size closer to the surface tabs (which I prefer). Has an emming effing pen (although I hear its shite) but extras such as keyboard dock and pen would start to drive the price up
- HP omni 10
Pretty much identical specs to the dell tablet. Slightly smaller and dimmer screen (don't want). No keyboard dock available. No goddam pen. Reported good battery life.
- Asus T100
Crappier screen. Comes with decent keyboard dock, so no extra spending. Has to charge overnight. Ripe with ports. No pen support. Good battery life.
Has anyone had/tested one or more of these?
Which is the best bargain?
P.S. I buy a new computing system about once every 6 years (no joke), so something that'll fail at 13 months will have me rocking in a corner.
P.P.S I can't spend any more time researching, I am becoming detritus.
