Seeing others post pictures of their $79 8 inch Windows 8.1 tablets running SSDR 1.4 encouraged me to attempt resurrecting my 8 year old AMD dual core laptop as a somewhat portable operating platform. As expected, it worked but just barely. I then began wondering about the overall suitability of the new Intel Atom/Windows 8.1 tablets. I note that Walmart is selling the Nextbook 10.1 inch Intel Atom based 1.8 GHz quad core tablet & keyboard for $179. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Nextbook-10.1-Intel-Quad-Core-2-In-1-Detachable-Windows-8.1-Tablet/3909220...Somewhat more interesting to me is the HP X2 for $234 because it ups system RAM from 1 to 2 GB. http://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-10-1-inch-Detachable-Personal/dp/B00NJF1IIG/ref=sr_1_4?s=electroni... Has anyone purchased either of these devices for prolonged trial and home usage? Many of us would be interested in learning of your results. Thanks and best 73.
