Gone are the days of the bulky computer with its separated tower, monitor and peripherals. Now, it’s easy to get the same power of a desktop compactly kept within a 10 inch Windows tablet — all with a touchscreen, eliminating the need for additional peripheral controllers. Computing technology has evolved so greatly that it’s easy to afford your own personal tablet, thanks in no small part to the many companies selling their own devices through Amazon.
To start, ASUS makes the ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C-A1 Bundle, which comes with a 1.33 GHz quad-core Atom processor by Intel, as well as 16 GB of base storage space that can be increased to 64 GB with a microSD card. Although it isn’t required to use the tablet, the bundle does include a keyboard to help make the typing transition from a computer easier.
From Lenovo, there is the ThinkPad Tablet 2, which arrives with 64 GB of storage space on its own without external storage. With 2 GB of RAM and a 1.8 GHz Atom processor, there’s no app you can’t run on this device. Not only that, but it will run for up to 10 hours on a single battery charge, making it a device you can use the entire work day.
Lenovo also produces the Yoga 10 HD, which runs the Android Jelly Bean operating system, rather than Windows, on a 16 GB device. Because it uses less space and runs with less intensive software, the Lenovo Yoga can run for up to 18 hours on a single charge, depending on the apps you use!
Finally, the Dell XPS 10 XPS10-2727BLK makes a superior budget option in two hard drive sizes: 32 GB or 64 GB. In either case, it uses Windows 8 RT to power the device and its applications.
Whether you’re strictly looking for a 10 inch Windows tablet or are open to other operating systems, there’s no shortage of options available. With fast Amazon shipping, you won’t have to wait long to give your new purchase a test drive!
