    I was looking for a tablet that met certain perimeters. I don't know if any of them meet what I need.

    -Transformer styled with the extra battery
    -backlit keyboard
    -full Windows 8 (not RT)
    -decent battery life (obviously the keyboard would help)

    Is there something out there that meets those needs? Having an i processor would be a benefit, too, because it would be my main workhorse.

    Another Windows 8 tablet with an Core i.x processor? The Surface 8 Pro already struggles with battery life with a 3rd Generation Core i5 processor with only 4 hours of usage. Sure the extra battery would help, but I'm not too sure yet. Most other tablets that meet most requirements you've set only run Windows RT.

    You might want to wait a little while longer as more Windows 8 products are produced, since the current offerings don't match your parameters. If you really need one NOW, find one that suits your needs the most. (My number one priority is excellent battery life)

    I'm hoping to replace both my iPad 2 and MBA with a tablet, a single device.

    That's why I say an iProcessor, unless atoms are good enough to run Visual Studio these days.

    I am currently running visual studio 2010 on my Samsung 500t which is an atom processor. I am using it for my C# class. It takes a few seconds to open up the program. But once it is open it works quite well. Then again I'm writing small programs.

    Check out the KUPA X15

    Dynamism - KUPA Ultranote X15

    Its only on sale from dynamism but it does cover a lot of the bases that the surface pro and the other W8 tablet hybrids just cant match at the moment. Removable batteries, replacement batteries, 3g,4g, Core i7, 8gb ram. Its spec'ed to the nines. Ive got the top spec i7 on order with a spare battery and charger. Will be ordering the projector when its available too. Cant wait for this puppy to arrive. Was holding out for a Surface Pro but the lack of any release date news in the UK has finally pushed me into ordering one of these.

    It only has 3D renderings for photos, not a good sign

    ^^ The pictures they have are all renderings and not real pictures, usually means something is vaporware or at least a good ways off

    ^i'm not saying they don't exist, I'm saying renderings are usually a sign its not being mass produced for sale.

    Kupa UltraNote Windows 8 modular tablet hands-on (video)

    As I said its from late 2012. Dynamism have been responsive to queries and have been good with discussing future modules available for the device like an add on projector module

    It'd be the best tablet ever if it had a backlit keyboard.
