    Hi everyone!

    1. What is your budget?
    400-500€ or less

    2. Would you consider purchasing used/refurbished?
    I would prefer new. But used or refurbished would be ok if the product has still some kind of warranty.

    3. Do you prefer a media/mobile tablet like the iPad, Windows tablet PC, or notebook convertible?
    I'm looking for a windows tablet (because on One Note) with a digitalizer.
    Also a 2-1 would be ok.

    4. What size Tablet PC would you prefer?
    • 5 to7-inches
    • 7.1 to 10-inches
    • 10 to 13-inches
    • Above 13-inches

    5. Which country do you intent to purchase from [where do you live]?
    I live in Italy, but i'm willing to buy from all the UE if the product has an International Warranty.

    6. Do you have any preferences to brand loyalty or dislikes?
    Absolutely not

    7. How many hours battery life do you require?
    8 hours or more

    8. What will be the primary usage scenario of this tablet? (Email/Web Surfing/Drawing/Word Processing/Entertainment/Notetaking etc)
    I'll basically use it only with an active pen for take note during lecture, and for pdf reading, also some light web browsing.

    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?
    I need a windows tablet, because i've never find a good One Note-like app in Android or IOS

    10. What software and tasks do you intend to run? (Microsoft Office or other Word Processing Suite/Photoshop/3D Studio Max/Autocad etc)
    I need it to works flawless with One Note

    11. Do you intend on playing Games? If so please list.

    12. Would you like to stream content through your home theater system?
    Also no

    Screen Specifics

    1. Any preference on screen resolution?
    2. Will you be using the tablet outdoors? Do you need to be able to see it through glare from the sun?
    See the above linked FAQ for guidance

    3. Do you require a pen? With or without pressure sensitivity? Do you prefer Wacom or N-trig?
    See the above linked FAQ for guidance
    Yes, i need a good pen, and i have no preference between the two, i only need it to work reallty well

    Component Specifics

    1. What size Hard Drive and Memory do you require? Would you like expandable memory?
    I would prefer 64gb or higer, with expandable 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?
    An USB port would be appreciated, but i don't have any strict demand

    1. Other non specific items ~ please add other items you require not covered above?
    I need it to last at least 2-3 years with no problem with One Note. I don't really care about the other things; my main use would be note taking with One note.
    2. Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration?
    I have considered the surface pro 3 and 4, but they cost too much in the UE. I've also seen the Asus Transformer Mini (T102HA) it seems ok but i don't like too much the processor.

    Thanks to everyone!
