    So far I've only seen this one from Best Buy. Insignia Flex 8.9" Tablet 32GB Black NS-P89W6100 - Best Buy It seems like a decent tablet spec wise but it has no reviews and I'm not sure how good the battery life will be. Anyone know of any comparable ones out their in this price range. I'm okay with refurbs.

    Just bought this one today but it won't be here until sometime next week (hopefully)

    Yoga Tablet 2 8-inch with Windows 8. $199 (on sale) 1920x1200 screen.

    Then 10-inch version is $239 but doesn't have pen support. Still a good screen, though.

    I ended up getting the Insignia, the Yoga 10 was tempting but out of my budget. The insignia is ok for the price, I like the screen size and the lightness of tablet. If I had any cons it would be how easily it grabs fingerprints and the material of the screen, it's sorta grainy for a 1080P like a screen protector is on it, it's not horrible just not super crisp like my Nook HD+. (Update: I changed my mind on this tablet, I just wasn't able to get use to the screen. Maybe I got a bad one so I'd suggest you try it out in store beforehand to make sure it's good enough for you.)

    Doh! If you had gone a couple weeks earlier, the selection at Best Buy would have been greater. I picked up the HP X2 2-in-1 (n113DX) for 224 on Xmas eve. They had an Acer and an Asus for 199 as well. (I'm an HP fan boy [yes, we exist], otherwise I would have walked out with one of those.)

    If you do a clean install, make sure you Compact your OS in the Admin Command Prompt Window. It will give you back a few gb on your 32gb card. (If you are leaving the software as is, check if it's compacted yet.)

    Thanks for the tip. I ended up returning the Insignia when I found a Lenovo Thinkpad 8 on ebay. The specs are pretty good, 8.3in full hd screen with 64GB storage. They go for under $200 used or Refurbished on Ebay.
