Now that that is out of the way: General Questions. 1. What is your budget? <$400 or >$900. Preferabbly I'm staying under $400 (or $500 with upgrades), but I am willing to consider going over $1k if it makes sense. In my research it seemed like the $500-$900 level is where I'd be running into consumer oriented products. My Dell Inspiron 7568 has really turned me away from that option... 2. Would you consider purchasing used/refurbished? Absolutely! But once I'm past the $500 mark I would be looking for some way to insure it. Crazy kids and all. I am totally down with the items like the t902 and x220t, I'd just like some words from those that have them on what I'm giving up from the rest of this questionnaire if I go in that direction. 3. Do you prefer a media/mobile tablet like the iPad, Windows tablet PC, or notebook convertible? Probably a convertible. I NEED a good keyboard. If it makes sense... I don't want to but would consider doing an old laptop with an ipad pro. I'd really like to avoid that situation though. 4. What size Tablet PC would you prefer? Above 13-inches; and the bigger the better honestly. But I am willing to consider 12" screens depending on aspect ratio. 5. Which country do you intent to purchase from [where do you live]? USA/Canada 6. Do you have any preferences to brand loyalty or dislikes? Big fan of Thinkpads. Brand open for the most part. I DID NOT have a good experience with my Dell. I will grant that it was more consumer oriented, but... 7. How many hours battery life do you require? 4+ would be ideal. And an external battery or similar would be nice. 8. What will be the primary usage scenario of this tablet? (Email/Web Surfing/Drawing/Word Processing/Entertainment/Notetaking etc) Daily driver + digital painting + light-ish video editing (very light on effects, but FHD), MUST HAVE A WEBCAM. 9. Do you have an OS preference? For example, do you own an iPhone and a Mac, or are you a Windows fan? Do you own an Android device and use Google services frequently? OSX with wacom EMR!!! But anywhos, I need Windows out of necessity. I'd like to be running Linux for the majority of time within a virtual box. Easy ability to hackintosh (x220t) is a plus, but not absolutely nessecary. 10. What software and tasks do you intend to run? (Microsoft Office or other Word Processing Suite/Photoshop/3D Studio Max/Autocad etc) Daily Driver: Text editors & Browsers Digital Painting: CSP/Sketchbook Pro/Krita, maybe the affinity series in the future. Video Editing: Vegas 11. Do you intend on playing Games? If so please list. Potentially. Not a necessity though. The majority of my games are 2D anyways, without too many shaders or computations (Jump Jet Rex, Valiant Hearts, Valdis Story...). 12. Would you like to stream content through your home theater system? Nope Screen Specifics 1. Any preference on screen resolution? The higher the better. But I am willing to hear thoughts on usability for sub-FHD resolutions. 2. Will you be using the tablet outdoors? Do you need to be able to see it through glare from the sun? Nope. 3. Do you require a pen? With or without pressure sensitivity? Do you prefer Wacom EMR, AES or N-trig? Yes. With pressure sensitivity. I'd prefer EMR, but am open to AES (from experience) and N-Trig (from ignorance). Component Specifics 1. What size Hard Drive and Memory do you require? Would you like expandable memory? Space for a 2.5" SSD. Expandable to at least 16 gigs for memory 2. What sort of inputs do you require, if any? Would you like full-sized USB and SD card slots? Are microUSB and microSD ok? Do you require HDMI inputs? USB and some form of SD are necissities. It has to have a front facing camera. Misc 1. Other non specific items ~ please add other items you require not covered above? None. 2. Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration? A good non-chiclet keyboard sure would be nice. Some solid travel. Good spring to the keys. I'm willing to consider different mods/upgrades that I would need to install myself. A 14" screen or bigger is appreciated but... THANKS A TON!
