    Check out the new Lenovo Thinkpad 8. That's the one I'm going to get if I return the Dell. It has a faster processor than the Venue 8 Pro and looks just as nice. It's only $50 more.

    Maybe this will be my replacement tablet:

    CES 2014: Asus VivoTab 8 Windows Tablet
    Jan 06, 2014

    We’re starting to see an influx of smaller form factor tablets running full Windows 8.1 and the newly announced 8-inch VivoTab 8 from Asus looks to be a promising addition.

    Following today’s reveal, I had a brief opportunity to get my hands on the VivoTab 8. The 380g tablet really feels light when you consider the operating system running on it, looks nearly identical to Dell’s Venue 8 Pro and feels comfortable in your hand with a pleasing soft touch back.

    It pack a bright IPS display with 1280 x 800 resolution and seems to render color realistically with good blacks and pure whites. Powering things is an Intel Atom Z3740 processor, 2GB of memory, and a 15.5Whr battery. Of course the VivoTab 8 has a welcome surprise on its lower right side: A professional Wacom Digitizer stylus.

    In my admittedly short testing, the stylus was super responsive and felt intuitive to use almost immediately. Asus says the stylus has palm-detection and about 1000 levels of pressure sensitivity, which seems about right for a Wacom. What hooked me right away was the handwriting recognition, quickly detecting and translating my chicken scratch into actual words.

    Add a 5MP camera and front-facing HD camera, 64GB of internal storage + microSD support, Microsoft Office Home & Student Edition bundled for free, potential 8 hour battery life, and a rumored price tag of $299, and Asus may have a very compelling option on their hands for an affordable Windows 8.1 tablet. One that’s sure to have Samsung and Dell looking over their collected shoulders.

    Stay tuned for review impressions as soon as the device is seeded out to the tech press.
