I’ve been waiting for a lightweight device that can run the programs I use on my desktop, with a decent battery life, keyboard, and also good multimedia capabilities for entertainment when I’m not working.
Last time I travelled it was a struggle to do what I needed on my netbook, and for me a keyblet ticks all the boxes.
I want a device that I can use for work and entertainment, at home or travelling.
Thanks for your reviews; they’re excellent. In shopping for a Win8 touch-screen computer, for me an important factor is their stability when I touch the screen — many wobble, some want to tip over if I don’t hold the base down. So now I’m looking for computers which have a brace of some sort for the screen.
We are looking at tablets and considering the Dell Venue with Android and the Dell Venue Pro with Window 8.1. Is these any reason the Pro model would be better than android and what are the pros and cons?
Hi, I’m looking for a hybrid laptap to use with Windows. I want versatility, reliability, but at a good price (isn’t that what we all want?). I use it mostly for social media, microsoft office, and to connect remotely to, work so the typing experience is important. No need for awesome system performance or storage space at all. What would you recommend?
A phablet with 8″ 2k screen, 3GB Ram, USB 3.0, micro HDMI and dual sim, with docking station as option (similar to ASUS Transformer TFT700T), with Windows 8.1, would be a dream for users who prefer productivity and efficency.
Please help, I am an artsy banker, not a computer chick.

I am on highspeed. I love Apple (have cell and ipad), love their customer service. Plse recommend, no clue of gbs etc.
