I’m waiting for a tablet PC that can run Revit – without its head in the cloud. In other words, I want it to be powerful in its own right. I don’t want to have to rely on someone else’s processor to do my work for me. And I want a decent amount of storage on-board.
Currently, there are only a couple of Tablet PCs that I would even consider buying:
I’m particularly interested in these two tablets because I like both brands – I own a Samsung LCD TV, which is beautiful, and my ASUS laptop has been very reliable and capable. Both of these tablets run Intel Core i5 processors and can have 4 GB of RAM.
If you didn’t know already, I am NOT an Apple guy – I have no iPhone, iPod or iPad. Nor do I have any plans to purchase any of these devices. I don’t care to elaborate (maybe in another post), but I’m just not interested in joining the masses in this particular instance.
With regard to tablet PCs in general – I know that things will improve next year, with Windows 8 and cheaper, more powerful Tablet tech. So I may wait for a while before making a final decision.
Do you have any tips or advice? Feel free to comment.

I purchased an ASUS UX21 Zenbook (Ultrabook laptop) several weeks ago and it suprises me what it is capable of despite it's small size. It is essentially a showcase of how technology is converging, and perhaps one of the last steps for the windows OS laptop before tablets take the torch.
