 (but it might be more useful to have the critique before the product launchs).

I am prepared, but I think you have to have some standing in the industry to be favoured with a pre (or even post) production unit...

<cue sobbing violins> but I am a simple blogger, with few readers or respondents!

Thanks for the review. It's a good idea to have engineers critique consumer products their industry colleagues work on; it's like a peer review (but it might be more useful to have the critique before the product launchs).

@TonyTib: More comments after I've used it for a while.

Instead of comments, why not write it up as a short (~500 word) review and email it to me at max.maxfield@ubm.com and I'll post it as a blog here on EE Times?

I've been thinking about a 10-11" tablet for getting work done (so a keyboard is a must, but I want something that's also very light).  I was really thinking about the Dell Venue 11 Pro series, but I still want to run legacy software, so I wanted a lower resolution display than the Dell's 1920x1080.  Oh, and I don't need fast, since I've got a quad-core Xeon at work and an 8-core FX8350 for myself.


The result?  I've got a Asus T100TA on the way: quad core Bay Trail, 2G RAM, 32G flash, 1366x768 display, keyboard, and long battery life, for $235 (refurb).  Once I feel like spending more AND all the programs I need on the go will scale, I'll look at the Dell again or the Surface 3 Pro.

I think I can deal with 32G flash size by using the microSD slot and/or a USB 3.0 flash drive (such as the superfast myDigitalSSD models).  More comments after I've used it for a while.
