I've always been an iPad guy but with the new Windows 8 tablets with full Logos capability, I'm really thinking about moving over. I want the full functionality of Logos on a single screen without shelling out $1000 for a MAC book air. Anyone have a Windows 8 tablet recommendation for Logos 5?

If you want to run the full Logos 5 Windows application, it has to be a "Pro" tablet (i.e. not a tablet that only runs Windows 8 RT). For example, see:

You'd need the Surface Pro, not the Surface RT. And the Surface Pros won't be out for 2 - 3 more months.

Or....you could look at something like the ThinkPad Twist which is full blown W8, a great laptop and capable tablet.  Works well for me.

Dr. Clint,

Do you have the ThinkPad Twist?  I'm considering one as an option to my laptop and a transition toward a tablet.  I can only afford one and can't quite afford the Yoga, so I was wondering how you liked yours (assuming that you have one).

God bless,

Richard

If I were getting a Windows tablet to run the full featured Logos software I would really look into a high end tablet and make sure it has solid state storage. I recently got a Macbook Pro Retina 13" which runs Logos a lot better than my Toshiba Core 2 Duo 16", but Logos still gets hung up at times on it. Of course, this probably depends upon how many resources one has and whether one does a tweaking to the program to improve performance.

Of course, with high end components one has to watch out for battery life.
