I have 11.6 inch Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W700 with I5 Core, with 4GB of RAM and 128GB Storage(SDD) and it came with a bluetooth keyboard case so i can use it as a laptop, it is a great Windows 8 tablet, very powerful and it performs very well at heavy demanding tasks like video editing(which i do for YouTube)and i have completely replaced/ditched my laptop which is great! :)

I only had it for nearly a year but I am interested in getting the Acer Aspire Switch 11(I5 Core when it gets released) in the next few months to replace my Acer Iconia W700, as my Acer Iconia W700 is a bit too heavy and bulky to use it as a tablet and it does not have prober keyboard dock.

Acer Aspire Switch 11 will be a great replacement for my current Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W700(I5 Core). :)


So everyone which Windows 8 tablet do you own and what are your likes and dislikes about it? :)

I have Dell Venue Pro 11 as my only Windows 8.1 device. Great battery life and it multitasks like a champ. Has awesome WiFi that can deliver over 200 Mbps of network transfer and easily able to feed all of my internet bandwidth on WiFi.

So far no really dislikes except when a certain desktop program combinations of programs/apps are open and I put the tablet to connected standby, it locks up and freezes so I have to force shutdown the tablet. I couldn't really reproduce the issue since it doesn't happen only on a certain state.

I have a Surface Pro 3, and I'm also using it mostly as a laptop. Very happy with it, though.

I have a Quantum View 10.1 Tablet with W8.1 and would not be surprised if I am the only Forum member who has. It was only launched in the UK last August and (I believe) has only been sold by Amazon. Users seem very enthusiastic about it according to the reviews and UTube demonstrations. It is modestly priced yet its features appear to be good quality (I think -----it is the only Tablet I have experience of). It is not powerful and does not have a large memory or long lasting batteries but one thing which especially attracted me to it was the greater connectivity compared to many, more expensive Tablets. As well as WiFi it has USB (micro), a Memory Card slot, Bluetooth and even a HDMI port. It has a reasonable Keyboard which doubles up as both a case and a stand. Like several others I mainly use it like a very portable Laptop and as I am connected to mains electricity most of the time the short life of the battery is not much of an issue for me.

Surface Pro 3 (i5, 128G RAM, 128GB storage) here and really like it. I also own a Nexus 7 Android tablet but it sits mostly unused since I made the switch to the Surface.

I have a docking station with external monitor and the Surface Pro makes a pretty decent desktop (although I already have a desktop). I could see it being my only computing device but it isn't so I just use it in addition to my myriad of computing devices.

I had a Dell Venue 8 Pro before I got the SP3. It was a decent little tablet. Not as powerful as the SP3 but very high bang for your $$$.

I have to say I really like the hybrid solution like my Asus Transformer Flip, but in the future I'd move to a Yoga or another 13" tablet as 15.6" is a bit on the big side (especially when only 1366x768 pixels). I do like gaming on this thing's 840m though.

Gave my Dell Venue Pro to my relative and got myself a SP3 i5, 8 GB RAM as I found the stylus to be more responsive and precise. I still use it as a Tablet. Battery life is 7-8.5 hours depending on my usage.

Just picked up a Asus TP300LD-R something. Intel HD 4400 display, Nvidia 820m. I tore out the the mech hdd and put in a Samsung evo 840 120 gb and I downloaded win8 pro to a usb using the media creator from m$ and then installed my license of 8.1 pro onto it. I am truly in love with it, this is my first windows touchpad tablet combo thing. keyboard is not deatachable it folds. I am a light gamer and a tech guy and I love this so much.

I never use mine as a laptop though so I haven't really bought the overpriced keyboard which is flimsy from what I experienced at the store

Winbook TW801 w/8" screen.

Very portable and amazing for the $. It's my little portable quasi-workhorse.

A nice benie I found is when I go to various websites, because it's a full 8.1 Windows system, the websites display the regular version...... not the mobile version of itself.
