Which Windows tablet do you own?

    It is not an option for this tablet either. It was set to 125 by default with no option to change it unless you wanted to go smaller. However, you could use the zoom keystrokes, the pinch motion going outward and it would zoom on the screen. On the settings screen it said to use the magnifier tool to enlarge small text. So, it may not work for you due to your vision. But it is a sweet little tablet none the less. Enjoy!

    I've been using the Dell Venue Pro 8 for just about a year now. I would love a Surface Pro, but the Dell was way more in my budget. I went with the 32GB edition and added a 32GB class 10 SD card. After further adding a Bluetooth mouse & keyboard this replaced my older laptop. I also added a USB to micro-USB adapter and use my Xbox 360 controller with it. It does pretty decent. I can use it for work to take notes and use Office programs and I can use it to play app games. It will run ES4: Oblivion with mods and some other older games pretty nicely.

    My only wish would be for a larger storage option (currently 32GB max SD card) and faster reading of the SD card.

    When I had my Dell Venue 8 Pro (before I got my Surface Pro 3), I had the 64GB model and used a 128GB microSD card with it. I'm pretty sure your 32GB model will accept 128GB cards as well.

    Sandisk recently announced a 200GB microSD card that would probably work as well but at $400 would cost more than your tablet.

    I have an original Surface RT and like it a lot, however it gets kind of sluggish at work after a while once I plug it into the college's network.

    Now that they have announced the Surface 3, I wonder if I'll be upgrading to that in the future or this: ASUS Transformer Book

    The Surface 3 was announced last year (I've had mine since 6/20/2014) and there are rumors that MS will announce the Surface 4 soon (there's also rumors of a mini-Surface).

    Edit: Never mind, I see MS just announced the Surface 3 and I was referring to my Surface Pro 3.

    Correct. Looks like Windows RT is pretty much a lost cause aside from the small update I understand it's going to get in order to adopt maybe a few of Windows 10's features (I have to admit I've repeated this a few times online but is this officially confirmed?). But this new Surface 3 seems to still extend the original philosophy, that is, the fit-and-finish of a Surface at a lower price point, but of course the bonus is that I guess now it can run all Windows programs, not just store apps.
