Currently I run Logos 6 (with latest update) on ASUS ViVoTab ME400c 10.1-inch Tablet.

Affordable? Yes. Powerful? Depends on your needs.

I Bought it with Windows 7 and have since upgraded through Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.

Note that:

  • Being using this for about three years now. So it is ancient by today's machines.
  • My library is small, just over 10K of resources.
  • Initially Logos was on the main drive. moved it to a 64GB Micro-SD card when space for indexing became an issue. Then that also seemed to fill up because of other software
  • Logos 6 with Logos Now is now installed on a 128GB Micro-SD on the tablet (More than 6 months since I did this).
  • Have Microsoft 365 and other software installed on the main drive
  • Mainly use it for reading, preaching, teaching at Bible Study, watching videos and listening to audio books.
  • I do a bit of research and writing on it especially when I travel out of town
  • I do the bulk of my work on my laptop.
  • I have the psychological satisfaction that I have my whole Logos Library with me anywhere I want it.
  • No problem of any sort on it so I have no reason to replace it for now.
  • Hope that helps.

I recently switched my mobile computing to a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga.  Quite svelte at a mere .6 inches thick.  Adequate power, speed, and storage.  Comes with an active Wacom stylus (which I prefer to a greasy finger on the touchscreen).  It's a convertible laptop with a full keyboard when needed, or, with the screen flipped around it is a tablet configuration.  However, when I flip the screen around, instead of entering Windows Tablet Mode, I maintain the full Win10 application (i.e., non-tablet mode) and thus am able to use the full Logos 6 application.

For some time I had been using Lenovo Yoga 2, 10" size, with 32GB SSD disk. And that was my problem. I had to do some tweaking to make Logos working from my MicroSD 128 GB card. And it worked but... not ideal.

Confession time. . . I am a lifelong Windows user, laptop and desktop, but for some reason switched to IPad for my tablet of choice.  I currently use the IPad Mini2 with 16 GB.  The learning curve to go to IPad was short (some of my best friends are MAC people).

I use the IPad primarily for Logos, Kindle and email with a little light internet available when I am in a WiFi hotspot.  I really love reading on this device and switching between Kindle and Logos is simple.

Confession time. . .

My confession is... I was on iPad for a couple of years. It worked well but I really missed full Logos experience. I switched to Lenovo Yoga 2 and it was not ideal. Now I am using Surface 4 Pro i5, 256 GB SSD and my experience is great.

I know it is not meeting the question criteria. It is not really easily affordable, but worth of every cent I paid for it.

Alexxy and others...God bless you for your gracious wonderful replies.  My search (apparently endless) for a cool-temperature, affordable Windows Surface Pro alternative that runs Logos and has a few ports on it and is thin and powerful continues.

I've recently switched to the Dell Venue 11 Pro 7140. Check the Dell Outlet for regular deals; I picked up a refurbished model with a Core M-5Y71 for $360 recently.

I know it's been a year since this post. I'm looking to get a windows tablet so I can have the full logos experience with me.

You mentioned you got that Dell for your logos 6. I'm curious have you upgraded to logos 7? 

Does it run smoothly on that Dell?

Thanks,

-Jeremiah

I used to have the DVP11 7140 and it ran Logos very well. It did run warm, though.

I now have a DVP8 5855 and am running Logos on that.

I have similar toys in my toy box. Both perform admirably. The  DVP11 7130 has the advantage of greater screen real estate, slightly faster processor ( i5 4300y), and 128 GB internal drive ....a boon for larger Logos libraries

Whereas the DVP8 5855 is super portable ... fits in a cargo pants pocket. but is limited to 64 GB drive and a slightly slower processor. ( Atom X5 Z8500) Your library size and need for portability would greatly influence which is better for you.

Both run Windows 10 and Logos 7 flawlessly.

Does your DVP11 7130 have 4 GB or 8 GB ram?

Thanks

I also have L7 running on a DVP11, but have had issues with throttling due to heat.  Some users of DVP11 have issues with this, others appear not too - it may have to do with the specific model you purchase.  This affects more than just L7 - make sure you look into this before you purchase.  Other than that, I've really liked the Venue.

Steer clear of the Samsung. l had one and returned it. Bad keyboard and not powerful enough to justify the price.

I have found that app.logos.com has really improved and is quite good for my Toshiba Windows Tablet, which is more of an entry level tablet.
