Brothers and Sisters,

Might some of you share your experiences with a fully functional Logos 6 "on the go" with hybrid tablets/laptops like Microsoft's Surface Pro 3?

Have any of you found satisfactory less expensive alternatives to the Surface Pro 3?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, Steve;

I use a Dell Venue 8 Pro as a Pocket Portable. It runs the full blown desktop version in a respectable fashion. Admittedly not as quick as my desktop or laptop, but for an ultra-lite, fully portable solution, I don't see how you could beat it. I got it on the Dell outlet site for a flat $200. It came with Microsoft office home and student. (Which retails for over half of that price, and equips you with one-note.) Smile

God Bless

Edit: They offer a 32 GB and a 64 GB version. I would recommend no less than 64 GB in whatever solution you end up choosing. With 32 GB you would undoubtedly have to run logos on an SD card...which hampers performance.

I had an Asus VivoTab Note 8 before I got the Surface Pro 3. The Asus tablet worked fine for Logos, but I had to install it on an SD card. Surprisingly, I didn't find the performance any worse than running it from the main memory of the tablet. On the Surface Pro 3, Logos is just fantastic. Whatever tablet you consider, make sure that it has an active stylus. Logos' controls can't be manipulated with your finger, but with an active stylus, the stylus acts like a mouse.

As for a "Hybrid Machine" :

I run a Lenovo X220T.  It is convertible. The touch screen can be rotated and folded facing outward...resembling a tablet. It has an i7 processor and 8 GB ram. No appreciable difference in speed or functionality compared to the PC. It seems much more stable on the lap than the surface pro 3. However it is heavier, and the keyboard does not disconnect. It is considerably cheaper since it's been on the market for a while. In fact they have offerd 2 new "improved" versions since I bought mine ...The X230, and X240. This series of Lenovo machines has a track-point button on the keyboard... a trackpad alternative. I love it. Don't think I will ever be without one. I even bought a usb version of that keyboard for my PC.

Hi Steve, I have the ASUS VivoTab Smart with Windows 8. My L5 library was on the hard drive. But I have now upgraded to L6 and have moved my whole L6 library to a 64Gb micro-SD card on the tablet.

I must say that I have not noticed any difference in performance between when it was on the Hard drive and now that it is on the micro-SD card.

I have no plan to replace my ASUS Tab for any expensive tablet for now as I get the performance that is satisfactory for my current needs. Of course, I do most of my heavy work on my laptop.

I have been running Logos on y Surface Pro 1 since early 2013. Now that Surface is available in a 3rd generation, you should be able to find older SP 1 or 2 for a lower price. This allows you to still have SSD and active stylus but not the latest battery life or larger memory configurations.
