    Title says it all.
    Been using a surface pro and wished it had USB-C ports. Looks like Dell already offers this.

    , what I like about Dell's Surface Pro clones is that they are more easy to service/repair, so in that regard I think it is a serious contender to the Pro. The Thinkpad and Elite variants also look great though and those have a 13 inch screen.

    The prices seem quite expensive especially for the higher RAM versions. Was hoping to see a drop after the MS reveals.

    Wait for a sale, I know at least MS and Lenovo have decent sales on tablets.

    Neither. We had a few 5285 tablets in work and, over time, they've proven themselves to run hot and generally be a bit odd. One features a touch screen that doesn't touch, to the lower section of the screen (well known problem).

    I just couldn't buy them again, in any form. If I recall, the 5290 also runs quite hot? Plus the 7200 2 in 1 uses a previous gen cpu. Madness.
