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.

Battery Life

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.

Surface Book | Surface Pro 4 | Surface Pro 3

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.

  1. HP Stream 8 (Amazon $184.82 | User Reviews)
  2. Your cell phone’s mobile hotspot feature
  3. A Mi-Fi device purchased from your wireless carrier
  4. 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.

For you unlucky soles that purchased a Windows RT Tablet like I did, I didn’t forget about you! Check out my Best Windows RT Apps for Microsoft Surface! 😉

  5. MNewall says

    I’m really struggling to find a replacement for my Lumia 2520. I love this thing, it does everything I need it to, it looks gorgeous, and it will survive a weekend away without me having to worry about keeping it charged. Unfortunately I dropped it… oops.

    I need something with long battery life, has a keyboard accessory, has front facing speakers (why do they always put them on the back????) and looks good – preferably with a laminated screen. Don’t care about super high resolution, and I’ll only really be using windows store apps and office (maybe a bit of LaTeX as well) so a bay trail would probably do it.

    My needs are apparently too specific (Or maybe I should just replace the LCD on my 2520)

    Very infomatif blog. What tablet support 4G Network?

    1. TODD Bedocs says

      Very good article. Very informative. You helped me decide on the Surface 3. AT&T now offers a 4g Surface 3 I know that I can connect with my hotspot or phone but nothing easier than turning it on and going. Plus they are giving it to me for FREE since I switched 12 devices to their great network. I will bookmark you and look forward to reading more of your great articles in the future.

    Great comparison Quentin.
    Have you had hands on experience of using GPS on the ASUS VivoTab Note 8 (M80TA)? I’ve read that the GPS in this device only works with Nokia “Here Maps” and not with any other applications or browser based maps, can you confirm this please?

    1. timon says

      Yes, you are right,

      Steve Ballmer lifted a boulder which finally hit Microsoft’s toes, and Ballmer himself broken into the worst CEO one as his end.
      The crushing defeat of Windows 8 was containing many problems, therein the defeated Windows 8 tablet policy contained a very execrable spot, —- the Windows 8 device the built-in GNSS is incompatible to mainstream GPS apps (a large number of existing resources), caused the problem by the Windows 8 Location API and Sensor API, and thus the already existing GPS app resources are unable of being used directly.

      Helplessly, these Windows 8 tablet purchasers who have to do buy and use of a third-party stepping-stone patch software — “Centrafuse Localizer”, otherwise the Windows 8 tablet GNSS is simply a waste.
      Why did Windows 8 Location API and Sensor API not directly support compatible to mainstream GPS apps, Microsoft? Trying to kidnap all of Windows users fight against Google maps and Google Earth? Merely got stupid fiasco.

      For a direct result, many buyers complain and even roar about the Windows 8 tablet GNSS, some who said “would no longer buy Windows tablet next time”.

      In the earliest Windows 8 version the virtual COM port was fully unavailable, thus led to all of external GPS receiver were unable to be used, the later two years users’ complaining voice around everywhere, and then MS had to update patch.
      However, built-in GNSS in Windows 8 (10) tablet that is still unfortunate, so far, MS did not resolve the Windows 8 (10) Location API and Sensor API incompatible to the already existing GPS app resources — NMEA 0183 and virtual COM port.

    1. Quentin Moore says

      Thanks for the suggestion. I will be updating the chart soon and incorporate some of these items. Thanks!!!

  12. Garth says

    I am curious as to why you did not mention the Dell Venue 10 Pro ?

    1. Quentin Moore says

      I plan to refresh the list soon. I’ll include the Dell Venue 10 Pro.

  13. James Stump says

    I don’t see Fujitsu on this list. They have a lot of tablet models and have been in the tablet business longer than about anyone.

  14. Stephen Schumacher says

    Terrific round-up! Very informative, judicious, and well-organized. One trivial typo: the HP Stream 7 is 7″ not 8″. BTW at these prices the not-bad HP Stream laptops are worth looking at for comparison, particularly the HP Stream 13 which includes forever-free 4G for about $260.

  15. Brian Lynn says

    I have a WinBook TW801. I also have the Asus Vivo Note 8 with the Wacom digitizer and pen. The $150 WinBook continues to surprise me. No 5g WiFi but the usb is a full size USB 3. The TW802 sports a full size USB 2. WinBook also has the TW100 which seems to be a 10.1″ version of the TW801/2. Same cpu, ram, ports, etc. Even the screen is the same resolution at 1280×800. At a $200 price point this looks like an awesome gift for grandpa with the bigger screen.

    Nice review, helped me chose my TW801 even though its not on your list!

    1. Quentin Moore says

      Thanks for the comment. I’ll add the WinBook to the list. I’m working on an update of this page right now.
