    Since the topic got off topic, what was your final decision/choices you were looking at again? There was the Gigabyte and the Samsung if I recall.

    The first thing that matters is that you make a list of your requirements. And don't forget, tabs are for on the go. For at home, PCs are better solutions.

    What apps do you really need on the go
    What can be better be done on the PC
    How much portability do you need - 10" tabs are BIG to carry
    Do you need connection everywhere or is WiFi OK
    etc., etc.

    What do you call a tablet PC and does it have a 22" screen - no touch screen.

    Well, it's a tablet sized form factor, that does PC things.

    Why would I want to trade that for my comfy high end desktop with a 22" screen. I am retired and do all my work at home. When I am out on a trip, I have other things to do. An occasional check of the mail, the news of my local station via internet, the weather report, planning the excursions of the next day, navigation in the car and when I am bored at night at the hotel I may watch something on the tab or turn the TV on.

    If I wanted to do real work away from home, I would lug one of my laptops. But I have never done that.

    What is that supposed to mean. Most of the people I have seen to turn Windows 8 down are experienced Windows gurus. It is just unacceptable that M$ wants to push such a hybrid down our throat.
