    We have an Asus Transformer that the wife uses only on trips for checking the mail. But we have never detached the keyboard and don't use the touchscreen. I use an 11.6" Asus laptop on trips. But for real work I need my 22" screen and my i7 desktop CPU. Anything else is too slow for video encoding which I do a lot.

    HP Stream for me...bought mine from the Microsoft store for only 79.00. Windows 8.1 Pro with a full year of Office 365 included, and FREE shipping (and that was to Alaska)! I believe you can still get it for that price at the Microsoft Store if you hurry.

    I recently swapped my Asus B101 for a Nokia Lumia 2520.

    The i5 processor on the B101 was amazing but it was 4 year old technology and the battery lasted a wee bit over 2 hours. It was killing me when I had to be mobile with it.

    The 2520 has a sweet Snapdrgon 800 quad core at 2.2ghz. Plenty fast enough for me.

    Do I miss the x86 abilities? Not that much. I never really understood why Windows RT was so poorly received. I guess people could not wrap their minds on using a tablet with Windows. Have you ever used an x86 app with a touch screen??? It's murder. Really. I have my desktop at home for those applications. I really don't need them when I am out and about. And, when I did use x86 apps on my B101 it was nearly always with at least a mouse. Now you have to drag a mouse around with you.

    Yes, there could be more apps in the Microsoft store but seriously, how many apps do you really need?
    1 billion? Really?

    There is barely anything I could do on my Android tablet that I can't do on my Windows tablet AND I have full Office on my tablet, access to a nicer interface, Onedrve interfaces better than Dropbox or Drive on an Android.

    I would pick a Windows RT tablet anyday of the week over and Android tablet. And would prefer it to my full laptop for mobility a lot of the time.

    No, it is this one:
    Buy HP Stream 7 Signature Edition Tablet - Microsoft Store

    I think the difference might be due to the T-Mobile option of the one that you showed.

    Thanks for the link. But it does not seem for me with my only 40% vision. I saw this comment:

    But the tablet is unusable in its current state due to the incredibly small font used through out the UI and it's unchangeable too!
    Is that your experience too. Is there no way to increase the DPI which I can do on all my Windows devices.

    Well, now I'm curious and will have to check that out. I haven't had any issues reading it...but then again, I have to use my glasses for any computer time. So, I will check this out tonight and post back later or tomorrow whether or not you can change the DPI.

    Type DPI on the start screen and you should get to that screen. I set mine to 150% - but that is on a 22" screen. On a small screen you should stay with 125%.
