xx My Tablet - Dell Venue 8 Pro
« Thread started on: May 31st, 2014, 7:44pm »

I have owned many tablets over the years. I discussed many of them on a podcast, but I've finally settled on one that I don't plan on switching from any time soon.

Perhaps the fact that I have Android tablets and a phone to fall back on if I want to, I'm super comfortable using Windows 8.1 most of the time. And this is NOT that stupid RT crap... this is full Windows, with a big touch interface when you want it (and it goes away when you don't). I can use it as a laptop replacement when I want and a comic reader/mobile game machine when I want.

I got the stylus and keyboard to go with it and I love both. Yes, the keyboard is a little small, but it's zippy and solid and easy to use. The stylus is great and using it for drawing and taking notes is awesome.

The only real drawback is the hard drive. There's not a lot of space. Luckily, it takes a microSD card and you can map an SD card as a root folder in Windows to trick it into thinking that there's more space.

This particular tablet also supports Miracast so I can use an adapter to make it HDMI compatible and use my big TV as a monitor (which it will also recognize as being a higher definition device for a bigger desktop).

All in all, it's not too big, not too small, and runs everything I need it to.
