Re: Windows Tablets

From what I hear, the Surface Pro works very well. A few months ago, I
purchased a tablett size Asus model, with a laptop style keyboard as part of
the computer itself. I got it from Amazon for around 170 bucks. Doesn't
have a lot of hard drive space, but it is pretty fast. I purchased a Micro
SD card for initial storage purposes for around 15 dollars. The computer is
very light weight, and easy to travel with. If you use something like this,
I would recommend a drop box account, so you can put your files there, and
grab them when you get back home for your big computer.
One thing to keep in mind when searching for a Tablett. Make sure it is
running a full version of Windows, and not Windows RT. The RT systems won't
run JAWS. Good luck!

Subject: Windows Tablets

Hello, everyone.

I have a question that I hope will not be considered off topic for this

I would like to purchase some sort of a Windows tablet to use when
traveling, and for when I don't want to drag my laptop computer around.

I am currently using Jaws 16, but plan to upgrade to Jaws 17 at some point,
probably in the next few months.

I assume that any windows-based tablet that I might get now will
automatically come with Windows 10 installed, which I'm ok with, since I'll
eventually need to upgrade my other computers to that operating system at
some point.

Can anyone give me recommendations and approximate costs of windows tablets
that would have sufficient resources to accommodate Jaws, and basic
Microsoft software such as Microsoft Office, Outlook e-mail, etc.?

At one point, I had considered moving to an IPad, but I am quite comfortable
with the Jaws to windows interface, so would prefer to stick with a Windows
tablet if at all possible.

Thank you!
