Which Processor Should You Choose?
For the best performance choose an Intel Core i7, i5, i3 or m3 processor, in that order. With these processors, you will get performance similar to what you experience on a desktop computer. In exchange for better performance, you will often sacrifice battery life.
If you don’t require top-end performance, or if you want to save money, choose a Windows 10 Tablet with an Intel Atom processor. These tablets are often smaller, cheaper, lighter, and have great battery life
Memory and Storage
Look for tablets with a minimum of 4GBs of RAM. This will allow you to run multiple applications comfortably. A 2GB Windows Tablet may be fine for light duty but performance will decrease as you open more applications
Look for Windows tablets with at least 64GB of storage. With 32GB of storage, you will often have very little available space available for your files because most of the space will be used by the operation system and programs. More space is preferable but 64GB should be your absolute minimum.
The Intel Core based Windows Tablets should get around 6 to 8 hours of battery life. Intel Atom based devices should get 8 hours or more. Tablets with an attached keyboard may see 8 to 10 hours or more.
Windows Tablets with a Stylus Pen (Digitizer Pen)
If you want a Windows Tablet with a stylus pen, you probably should go with one of the Microsoft Surface devices. They all ship with a digitizer pen and each provides a reliable pen experience.
Windows 10 Tablets with a Keyboard
To get the most out of your Windows Tablet, I strongly suggest you consider devices that include, or offer optional keyboards. Keyboards are a must for interacting with legacy Windows applications. Keyboards also give Windows Tablets an edge versus Android tablets and the iPad in terms of productivity.
All of the tablets in our comparison chart has a keyboard option except for the 8″ NuVision Tablet.
Windows Tablets with 3G/4G Sim Slot
Current generation Windows Tablets equipped with a 3G/4G Sim slot are mostly non-existent. The Surface Pro 2 featured broadband compatibility but this device is no longer available.
The only option I’ve seen currently available is the HP Stream 8. If you aren’t interested in the HP, the best option is to chose the Windows Tablet you like the most and make use of an external 3G/4G device.
- HP Stream 8 (Amazon $184.82 | User Reviews)
- Your cell phone’s mobile hotspot feature
- A Mi-Fi device purchased from your wireless carrier
- Microsoft Surface Pro 2 via eBay
What About Windows RT Tablets
Do not buy a Windows RT tablet! This line of devices is dead. Microsoft has stopped manufacturing them. Windows 10 Tablets perform better, have comparable prices and battery life, and have greater compatibility. Plus you can find many cheap Windows Tablets running Windows 10 these days. This makes the Windows RT tablet an unnecessary product, which is why Microsoft killed it.
