I have been given permission by my wife to seek a more powerful tablet as a Christmas present. After being disappointed by the Nexus 9 (I think it's out of the running but we'll see-- the ease of modding a Nexus is a powerful lure), I have been thinking about what I really want out of a tablet and why I would want one instead of a laptop. Part of that is because I have a desktop computer. I want something that is truly portable but can actually do work as well as entertainment and I think tablets might be there. I would like to explore doing this with Android rather than Windows because I think, hardware and software wise, this is possible and preferable. I don't want to do chrome OS and I'm not looking so much for a 2-in-one as BT keyboards are just fine. So I'm starting my search with the following few preferences: Android (preferably with some reasonable chance of getting Lollipop. 10"+ screen, best resolution possible Fast CPU (I don't have a good definition for this) 2GB minimum System memory, 3GB a plus External memory card Reasonable battery performance (given my other preferences) Good support <$500 The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is on my list to consider, but I'm looking for what else is out there. I'll be doing my own research, of course, but I'd be curious for any suggestions. One that I'm curious about is this 13.3" Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro which is on sale this week. http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/tablets/lenovo/yoga-tablet-series/yoga-tablet-2-pro/#tab-customize Anyone seen much on this. I could also consider the 10" model, but I might only put up with the yoga joint for the bigger screen. All input welcome.
