    300 eh! Well, it's gonna be a toughie but here it goes. ..

    Look at the Thinkpad Tablet 2 windows tab. Anemic but for your needs and budget it's all you got.

    Also, every now and again I see used Surface Pro 1 popping up on ebay in the price range of 300-400. They will not give you your 6hrs of battery life, but for the price it is the best you can get.
