    Im looking for a bargain tablet. It will be my first Win 8 machine. I do not support RT at all.
    I messed with Dell Venue 8 pro. Amazing machine. But I need a bigger screen, not a fun toy.

    So looked at the nicely priced ASUS T100 (which bargains constantly fluctuate) or the Dell Venue 11 pro (bit awkward high price).

    But then i read the 2014 Bay Trail models will support 64bit OS. Im not sure if that will apply to me since I dont want to go over the $500 mark and Im not sure if the 64bit versions means they will have a higher price tag, or if they will remain relatively the same as current 32bit versions.

    Not to mention Acer (love that company) is a direct competitor of ASUS, and they will launch their new devices in 2014 and I think they will out due the T100.
    Anyone have any high hopes for changes in low price tablets in 2014?
    Or should I just grab the T100 or Venue11 first chance i see for a bargain

    Definitely wait.

    If you're not settled with the current full Win 8 tablets, then you'll only regret buying one of the current ones when the new ones are announced and released in the next 3-4 months.

    seems intel is releasing something new every 4 months that is a game changer and is making me wait.
