    Hello everybody,

    I've been using a Dell Venue 8 Pro the original version with 32gb storage and 2GB RAM which i got for $100 during one of the Microsoft 12 days of Christmas sale events a few years ago. The device runs Windows 10 fine and for my uses I can live with the limited 32GB storage (thanks to the MicroSD card slot), it is getting a bit long in the tooth and a bit beat up which has me looking into a replacement.

    What I'm looking for:
    - Slab style tablet with at least 2 USB ports (they can be micro/usb-c or full size)
    - At least a 1080p screen (1920x1080)
    - 8-9 inch screen.
    - No proprietary power brick (device needs to charge via the USB ports)
    - dual or quad core CPU (I would prefer something other than an ATOM CPU but can live with one).
    - minimum 4GB RAM
    - MicroSD storage
    - at least 802.11ac Wifi
    - Wireless Display support (Intel WiDi), though I could live with a micro HDMI or mini/micro displayport.
    - Windows 10

    I'd prefer to keep it under $400 but if the device has decent sounding speakers I'd be willing to go a bit higher. I was looking at a lightly used Surface 3 but at 10 inches its a bit larger than I would ideally like. Any suggestions?
