HP Split X2 and Win8
We just bought my daughter a present - for getting her degree - proud parents :)
She chose a 2in1 HP Split X2 over a straight laptop/IPad (her choice)
And she loves it :)
She is praising the way the touch screen works (and only slight moan over no start button) - it works fast and seems to do everything it says on the packet.
When in tablet mode - its much bigger and heavier than an IPad so not quite as portable but for sitting on the sofa and multitasking (watching rubbish TV/Facebooking/buying clothes online) then the screen size is perfect - no more pinching and zooming.
My only concern is the physical robustness of the inter-connector (so I took out the extended warrant just in case!)
if these things are made cheap and well enough (this one cost £500) then MS might make be able to fight the IPad in the educational field
And the killer for me was that I just downloaded and ran the Scratch 1.4 windows installer - and voila - Scratch on a pad :)
Welcome to the 'dark' side, Windows tablets are actually pretty sweet. A tablet but you can run everything a full computer can as well as use it wherever.
You could put ClassicShell on it to restore the Start Menu and Button like I have on my Win 8.1 stuff that makes my life a lot nicer :D
