    General Questions.

    1. What is your budget?
    Preferably <$700

    2. Would you consider purchasing used/refurbished?

    3. Do you prefer a media/mobile tablet like the iPad, Windows tablet PC, or notebook convertible?
    No real preference. I've only really owned convertible notebooks so far, though.

    4. What size Tablet PC would you prefer?
    • 10 to 13-inches
    • Above 13-inches

    5. Which country do you intent to purchase from [where do you live]?
    United States

    6. Do you have any preferences to brand loyalty or dislikes?
    Not really, as long as it's reliable and is capable of doing what I need.

    7. How many hours battery life do you require?
    My old laptop got me 2 hours, so honestly I think most suggestions will get me at least that, which is fine with me. Haha

    8. What will be the primary usage scenario of this tablet? (Email/Web Surfing/Drawing/Word Processing/Entertainment/Notetaking etc)
    Typical web tasks and word processing, 2-D and animation, light video editing for animations.

    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?
    No real preference. I currently use Windows and Android, but I'm fine with Apple products.

    10. What software and tasks do you intend to run? (Microsoft Office or other Word Processing Suite/Photoshop/3D Studio Max/Autocad etc)
    Office and art programs similar to Sai and Photoshop mostly.

    11. Do you intend on playing Games? If so please list.
    Probably won't be using it for games very much.

    12. Would you like to stream content through your home theater system?
    If possible, but not necessary.

    Screen Specifics

    1. Any preference on screen resolution?
    Not really.

    2. Will you be using the tablet outdoors? Do you need to be able to see it through glare from the sun?
    Yes to both (if possible).

    3. Do you require a pen? With or without pressure sensitivity? Do you prefer Wacom EMR, AES or N-trig?
    I require a pen with pressure sensitivity. No real preference unless there's a significant and noticeable difference to using one over the other.

    Component Specifics

    1. What size Hard Drive and Memory do you require? Would you like expandable memory?
    I'd like expandable memory. No requirements really.

    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?
    I'd prefer full-sized USB and SD card slots. HDMI is nice, but not required.

    1. Other non specific items ~ please add other items you require not covered above?
    Nothing in particular that I can think of.

    2. Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration?

    I'm upgrading from my current T902, and my previous notebooks were the T5010 and Tecra M7. But my T902 is starting to show its age and is a bit cumbersome for everyday travel. I'd definitely enjoy something more portable
