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.
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).
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
