So, in probably a very questionable move last night, I bought a Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 from the Microsoft Store in Kansas City. I liked that it charges via micro USB, is light weight, and has a full USB cable. I got it home and started setting it up, but I noticed some discoloration on the bottom of the LCD panel. I am going to take it back after work today and see if I can get it exchanged.
I'm posting this wondering if anyone here has experience with the low power SoC Windows 8(x86) tablets.
Do you have one? What do you think of the idea? Are you planning on getting one?
I have a Microsoft Surface Pro, it's an x64 Tablet, but x64 is compatible with x86.
I just love how complete it feels, compared to Android and iOS, and how you can do everything you can't do on the other said Tablets.
Besides, Tablets with an x86 or x64 Processor are considered Laptops in a Tablet form factor, which is good, because you have full freedom over your Tablet (even way more than you have on Android Tablets), and it also means you don't need to buy a new Tablet every year, just to keep up with the latest OS.
Will your Tablet work with Windows 9? Install Windows 9 like you would do with a Laptop or Desktop.
Will your Tablet not work with Windows 9? Either stay on Windows 8.1, or install Linux, OSx86 (Mac for non-Apple Computers), *BSD, or anything else you like.
You only can't go to Windows 7 or lower, because they don't support UEFI.
I think I'm fine enough with Linux, actually.
I can't do as much with Linux as I can with Windows, but at least I don't need pay Millions of Euros a month on electricity, because I need to put a fan behind it.
