    If its a full Windows tablet like any other 8" one, I think it will indeed get Windows 10.

    I don't have any qualms suggesting that tablet, but I highly recommend looking at other tablets like the Dell Venue 8 Pro, ASUS Vivotab Note 8, Lenovo Miix 2 and ThinkPad 8, etc. since the current generation is very similar under the hood, save for feature differences like a stylus digitizer, better or worse battery life, different designs, build quality, and prices vary.

    I agree with xandros9. My favorite tablet by far is the DV8P, but having recently picked up the Toshiba Encore 2, I can safely recommend that tablet to anyone who wants a device for casual entertainment purposes or short Word editing. It's a good little device.

    Abother question: What's the difference between windows 8.1 and windows Rt? Which one do you recommend? In windows rt can I install apps in *exe? Should I be able to install windows 10 in a surface Rt?

    I loved my Surface running Windows RT, but if you plan on installing programs on your tablet, you'll have to go with straight up Windows 8.1, as RT will not allow you to install programs. I recommend a full Windows tablet.

    So in win rt I only can install "modern" apps? Or I'm wrong? In a tablet with windows 8.1 can I install for example a quake 4 game? Doom for PC? Or I'm misunderstanding all the concept of a win 8.1 tablet? Thank you!

    the primary difference is that RT cannot run .exe programs like normal Windows due to insurmountable hardware differences.
    thus, you can only get additional software from the Windows Store. Fringe benefits include enhanced security and virus protection. (since virii cant run, etc!)

    full Windows 8.1 PC's are as you'd expect.

    Windows 10 is less certain, but likely to come out for the RT.

    I also have the Toshiba Encore 2. It's a nifty little machine. A bit lower specced than the Dell Venue Pro but still remarkable in its ability to run full fledged Windows 8.1. I'm still impressed with how smooth the software runs on such low end hardware.

    There are a handful of minor things but nothing that you should be afraid of (or not unexpected for a sub-$200 dollar tablet). For example, sometimes the onscreen keyboard won't let me type in the letter "U." No idea why. Luckily, rotating the screen fixes it. And the problem rarely happens since I'm usually rotating the screen anyway. Another example is that you might see a slight screen shutter when swiping to switch apps. But even that was dramatically improved months ago thanks to a Toshiba update.

    I hear the Windows 10 will use the same hardware requirements as 8 but I'm not sure how well it would run.

    Thanks for your answer. Now I have more options for my purchase. I like the Toshiba tablet, so maybe I will purchase that one.
