    Unfortunately, I agree with you, but hopefully both of us are wrong =P

    I'm just starting out with my second device today.

    On a slightly different topic. Wouldn't Win 8.1 contain a lot of stuff we don't really need on a tablet? I found something called iSCSI, whoever uses a SCSI device on a tablet? There has to be alot of unnecessary stuff that can be removed, has anyone tried doing an inventory?

    Of course there is a lot of stuff you don't really need on a tablet, after all, Windows 8 is originally a desktop OS. But why would you want to remove it?

    Storage is at a premium on a tablet so I was wondering how much you might be able to reclaim.

    Its effectively like paying twice the cost for an Office license and getting a full PC thrown in; I imagine the build quality varies a lot but I personally have had no complaints about mine. Fit and finish is as I'd have expected, with typical Windows stability and good performance. There are a lot of happy owners.

    modlock will work, do a search for it and you should find it easily.

    iSCSI is network protocol that allows you to Mount Storage Area Network (SAN Storage) and treat it like local storage using IP, it is typically used on Servers but in some cases can be used for clients as well...

    Do you have ArtDock working on the ATVN8? I've published a couple of Surface Pro versions with working ZBrush docks, but the *.ahk file has to be revised for each new device (above my level of expertise, I'm afraid). Also, ZBrush's interface must be next to impossible to read on that tiny screen.

    That doesn't sound like something you'd need on a tablet, I'm fairly sure there has to be more.
