Here is what I want in a tablet
- 8 - 9 - inch size class (7 inches on my Nook seems too small and my mom's Ipad seems too big - if I want something that big I'll get a laptop or a convertible so it can double as my laptop)
- Nice IPS screen (or comparable). Quite frankly 720p (1080p would be nice, but not at extra expense) would be fine for my applications, but it needs to have decent contrast and color accuracy.
- AMD 3.9W Temash processor (slight battery life hit, but wipes the floor with Atom)
- Full Windows 8.1
- Price of $299
If Microsoft/AMD/Partners could come up with something like that it would be something I would actually consider buying as a nice auxiliary to my other systems for throwing in a carry-on to take on a trip or get on the web while sitting on a couch or even plug into a TV (HDMI out is a must) to watch Netflix or something. My other dream system would be this
- 13.3 inch convertible tablet
- Core i5/i7 Haswell processor
- Keyboard dock with additional battery to make into a laptop
- Desktop dock with Thunderbolt 2 and external graphics
I honestly would probably rarely use this in tablet mode, but it would be nice to have the ability. The thing that would be really nice would be to be able to get rid of my desktop and still have enough graphics to game and then disconnect from the desktop dock and have a thin and light laptop. I think Thunderbolt 2 could allow this (at least at 1080p high settings).
