I would say no 

32 GB hard drive and 2GB RAM is not enough.

It has 64 GB  hard drive and  4 GB Ram. It is also possible to upgrade it up to 128 GB. Is it possible to run the full version of logos ?

Assuming you can get it with an SSD that is big enough for your library (128 SSD for me), the other drawback of this tablet is the Atom processor. Coupled with 4GB of RAM, this tablet will be slow.

A step up would be the Surface Go 8GB RAM/128GB SSD, which I reviewed here.

It looks like it "can" run it, but would you "want" to run it. I supposed I could enter my Honda CRV in the Indy 500, but I wouldn't do it. That's an extreme exaggeration and the Miix is that under powered by comparison. I would say go another device instead if you want an all around computer. But if ALL you want to do is run Logos and Windows and maybe word, then go for it. Few people want to use a device for only a couple of applications so you will likely be unhappy long term.

This summer I made a try with a small budget PC. 2Gb RAM and 32Gb HDD; Atom Z8350. There was no way to load logos with such a small hard drive. But then I tried with an SD card. They are not expensive. And it worked surprisingly well. No problem with searches nor hover. Mobile Ed videos run flawlessly too. I used several columns (two bibles, a dictionary and a commentary, all of them connected) at the same time in the screen. I had other books opened in the background at the same time.

Thanks for this - good to know it worked well.

For others reading this thread I just wanted to flag that there are, potentially, issues in using SD cards:

Thank you Kevin for the recommendation. I want only for logos and word. I have ordered it today.

Don't forget to post when you have loaded Logos and tested it a couple of days. I would be interested to see if you are satisfied with the results. I had Logos on a Lenovo ThinkPad 2 and it ended up being too slow to be practical. It was good for some things like reading with. Since it ran full windows I could open my personal books on it while I couldn't on my Samsung tablet.

I canceled my order and ordered "Lenovo Thinkpad T550 i5 FULL HD 1920x1080 15,6" 8GB RAM 256GB SSD Windows 10 " . I will have it next week. Thank you for all your advices.

Blessings in Christ.
