If you're shopping around for a Windows tablet that will run Windows 10 without a fuss, we've got some of the best options lined up right here.

We're pumped for the upcoming public launch of Windows 10, and many of you guys are eager enough to try the Technical Preview. Anyone on the cusp of picking up a new Windows tablet will no doubt be keeping the Windows 10 experience in mind, and for them we've picked out some excellent options that are currently available.

The minimum system requirements for the Windows 10 Technical Preview set a relatively low bar.

  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
  • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
  • Free hard disk space: 16 GB
  • Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
  • A Microsoft account and Internet access

There are a few caveats to these requirements (opens in new tab), but by and large, if your PC meets these criteria, you're good to go. We've got some information below on how to install Windows 10 on your existing machine, but if you're good to go, you can start our list here.

How to install the Windows 10 Technical Preview

Microsoft Surface Pro 3

The grand-daddy of Windows tablets has been running the Windows 10 Technical Preview fine since the October release, and will no doubt be the first consideration for anyone in the market for a Windows 10-ready tablet. The Surface Pro 3 is just as much a laptop replacement as it is a tablet, thanks in no small part to its generous 12-inch 2160 x 1440 display, adjustable stand, smart keyboard cover, and full-sized USB 3.0 port. That said, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is priced in line with laptops rather than most tablets.

Dell Venue 8 Pro

Dell Venue 8 Pro

The Dell Venue 8 Pro has become the everyman's Windows tablet thanks to exceptional bang for buck. The good display, strong build quality, and solid performance are punctuated by an altogether reasonable pricetag. The base model has 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, an 8-inch 1280 x 800 display, and a quad-core 1.8 GHz Intel Atom processor. The only serious mark against the Venue 8 Pro is a poorly-placed physical Start button on the side.

Lenovo ThinkPad 10

Lenovo Thinkpad 10

The Lenovo ThinkPad is a light Windows tablet with plenty of battery life and 10.1 -inch 1920 x 1200 display. A wealth of accessories include desktop dock, keyboard dock, and an included active stylus. Even the snappy cover offers an imaginative flip-down corner for rear camera access. Tucked away inside is a 2.4 GHz processor with 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The starting price is a little high given the alternatives available with similar processing power, but the ThinkPad 10 offers great quality for those with a flexible budget.

Toshiba Encore 2 Write

One of Toshiba's newer Windows tablets is built specifically for note-takers. Its included Wacom stylus stays accurate and affordable thanks to new Active Electrostatic technology. The Toshiba Encore 2 Write packs a 1.8 GHz Intel Atom processor with 2 GB RAM, 64 GB of flash memory, and a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 display. An 8-inch version is also available for $50 less. You'll find a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 1.2 megapixel camera on the front. Battery life is listed at 11.1 hours.

HP Stream 7

HP Stream 7

The HP Stream 7 is a super-affordable Windows tablet that provides all the necessities. It packs a quad-core 1.8 GHz Intel Atom processor and 1 GB of RAM. You'll have 32 GB of storage for your stuff, and a 3000 mAh battery to keep it going for 8 hours. On the back is a 2 megapixel fixed focus camera for occasional shooting and a 0.3 megapixel camera on the front for video calls.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 AnyPen

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 AnyPen is ready for stylus input, but don't worry about having to carry around a dedicated, expensive Wacom pen. Just about anything with a point to it can be used as a stylus with this Windows tablet. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 AnyPen has an 8-inch 1920 x 1200 screen with an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a 1.6 megapixel camera on the front. Under the hood is 32 GB of storage, 2 GB of RAM and a 1.3 GHz Intel Atom processor powering Windows 8.1 with Bing. The two-cell 6400 mAH battery should last you about 15 hours.

Your favorite Windows 10-ready tablet?

There are plenty of Windows tablets out there that meet the spec requirements for the Windows 10 Technical Preview, and should run the final release just fine. What tablet are you currently running Windows 10 on? If you're in the market for a new one, which do you have your eye on?

  • Is it compatible with my refrigerator too..??
  • No but it is with your water heater.
  • Well, technically there is a Windows 10 IoT version ComingSoon (TM).
  • Put a windows logo with a 10 on it and it is ;)
  • That remembers the auto-upgrade your iPhone 4 to 4S, or 5 to 5S xD haha. Those stickers were so funny!
  • Lol!! I walked around with an small Xperia with a Lumia 800 sticker on it. The actual words, Lumia and 800, no Nokia and people believed it. :D
  • I don't get why my mobile phone can't do the same things than these tablets. I mean, it has higher specs than the most out there. Why i would buy a freakin tablet??? Come on, microsoft, thats ridiculous. 10 years ago it might have made some sense, not now
  • All those tablets will also run legacy programs and your phone will not... Duh
  • Do you even know the difference between ARM and x86 based processors? Also, 4-5.5 inches aren't close to good for some things, like full web experience for example. Your thoughts not even make sense actually.
  • I was waiting for that answer!!! X86 is packed today in a usb key for less than 100$. 5 inches are not close enough?? Now listen, suppose that I'm not rich, I go for a 535. Why the heck should I spend furher 100-200$ for an 7-8 inch tablet??? Second point, i use remote desktop, and I find it even easier on my phone then vice versa.
  • What do you mean by
    X86 is packed today in a usb key for less than 100$ 
    I don't get it? Windows Phone (7/8/8.1) does not seems to run on X86 based hardware (look the Motorola RAZR-i or the Asus ZenPhone). All Intel ATOM phone I happen to know run Androïd, but maybe that will change with Windows10? To be honest with you, I can't wait to get a X86-64 processor (AMD would be cool) in my WinPhone, but I think I can still wait a lot... Let's imagine a phone you can dock and use as a full desktop (Windows 10) when at work, then undock and use as a phone/tablet when "on the move" :) I'll get it, even with a 4.5" screen :)
  • That's great!
  • I think the final build will. Check out raspberry pi 2.
  • My heart yearns for a surface mini..Microsoft, please.
  • I agree,  I am waiting for that, But if they do not announce it when Windows 10 is released, then I will stop waiting and look to other solutions.  ALso make sure to keep the pen with it.
  • A Surface Mini with higher res screen, 64GB storage, same pen as SP3 and built-in 4G would be a gift from the Gods!
  • Get an Asus VivoTab 8, own or penless edition. Feels and performs like it has the Surface name, but at a lower price. I definitely recommend over the HP Stream... Weighs less, better display.
  • Agreed, the Asus Vivotab 8 is awesome. I have the newer, penless edition ("M81C"). Can recommend it to everyone: bigger screen, more RAM (for non-Europeans) and lower price. (I have a review on it on YouTube)
  • The Yoga Tablet 2 is way better than what the Surface Mini was going to be.
  • Why does it have to have the Surface name?
  • A surface mini isn't doable. It runs on a real processor, so that heat has to go somewhere. 
  • 2 Lenovos in that list? Hmm... No thanks ;)
  • Lenovo snapfish your ass please
  • Had loads of problems with dell venue 8 pro
  • Yes it does the only way to install 9926 is either clean Install or upgrade from previous build because of some compression issue. Not to mention the myriad of other things that are wrong with it on windows 10
  • Even with deleting everything im having issues ! Got to ISO file it
  • Yeah awesome device but stained by little issues. WiFi dying when waking from sleep is most annoying.
  • I have read a lot about driver issues with the DV8P. Is this article suggesting that those issues have been fixed??? I'd love to test out W10 on my DV8P, but I don't think I'm ready to tackle that if doing so is as troublesome as I've read.
  • Have no problems with mine, all up to date with drivers and OS updates and everything works fine. Still one of (if not) the best 8" tablet around.
  • Wait until you are about a month past warranty.  Then the fun starts.  Mine stopped charging.  This is pretty common apparently, but not a word from Dell about it.  
  • The charging issue is due to the unfortunate choice Dell made for the USB connector on the device. My first one had the issue and thankfully it was still under warranty.  You have to be SUPER CAREFULL when inserting the charger. I am well over a year and all works well.
  • I did with storage too but Win10 working fine on it currently.
  • My final straw was when something went wrong with the signed drivers and I had to ship it off for repairs because it refused to boot
  • Same here with Dell XPS 15. All problems are driver related. I'll wait for dell to supply W10 drivers before I try again
  • I installed 10 on my DV8P (1st Generation with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of storage), and had to roll it back to 8.1. Not a good experience using W10TP build 9926 on it. Very annoying. But I'm currently having zero network issues, or any other issues whatsoever on W8.1. I really love that tablet and use it every day, but I think current W10 builds are not ready for it just yet. I sent as much feedback to Microsoft as possible before rolling it back. I'll wait for future builds and decide if I try another preview build when available or if I just wait until W10 is final to install it on the DV8P.
  • I had no problems installing W10 on it, but performance was terrible on upgrading from W8.1.  I finally wiped the system partition and installed fresh from the 9926 ISO and the tablet flies!  I've found myself using it more than any other non-phone device lately at home.
  • Linx 8 is it ready
  • Is that a question? You should be ready to use the question mark, you know?
  • Should be the specs are above minimum...
  • Nope, I have one and tried to install W10 on it, it said " technical preview is not compatible for PC's with compressed OS yet".
  • Nope. Any tablet running Windows 8.1 with Bing isn't yet compatible. But Gabe Aul said the next build will support wimboot installs so it isn't going to be a long wait before Linx 8 gets W10.
  • Until the tablet experience improves it's really not ready for the dell venue 8 pro I'm sure it'll change my main gripe is tiny buttons in explorer and in internet explorer
  • It actually isn't too bad on the screen size (once you put it in tablet mode). The biggest problems are lack of a modern browser (Chrome sucks in modern mode) and wasted space in the start screen because you can't get rid of the left column.
  • I also miss the charms bar. If they don't return it, I won't upgrade to Windows 10.
  • How about the original surface pro?
  • It'll work. I had one of the early Tech Preview builds on my original Surface Pro and it had no issues.
    I'm not sure if this is still the case but you'll want to get the graphics driver from NVidia and not use the one built into the OS.
  • I remember trying to use their reference drivers on a vista laptop it seemed to always crash most games id play
  • I could be wrong but I am pretty sure the original had an Intel graphics card in it.
  • @Hysonmb Lol... Nvidia drivers... Only the RT variants use Tegra. The Pro variants use the igpu in the Intel cpus :P.
  • Has to be at least the pro 2 as RT is not yet supported.
  • HP Stream 7 has been a really nice tablet for me so far. Looking forward to Windows 10 on it.
  • I picked up one too! Crazy good for the price
  • That's cool to hear. I think they could make great tablets for schools at the size and price point.
  • Just wondering...will there be the required 16gb free hard drive space on the HP Stream 7 and other low storage tablets?
  • Wait for next build. It will have wimboot install so you won't need 16gb free. It will only need about 4-6gb for WU.
  • Go for it!
  • Win 10 TP is working on my Dell Venue 8 Pro like a charm. Looking forward to RTM!
  • Did you just install it through the update process, or was it more involved?
  • I did clean installation
  • I'm considering dropping it on my Dell Venue 8 Pro.  Did you have much of an issue installing it?  Win 10 works great on my laptop and my desktop
  • There ara issues, but they are not critical for me. The worst for me is PIN authorization, it doesn't works now.
  • I have a 'not enough memory issue' !
    If I reboot the device do I have to do all the previous 8.1 updates before I do windows 10?
  • There isn't a lot of space on the 32GB versions. I did a system refresh, cleared most of my apps and then installed from an ISO.
  • I installed Windows 10 on my Venue 8 Pro -- HUGE mistake. It turned a fantastic tablet into a nearly unusable pile of garbage. Win 8.1 is excellent on the tablet, Windows 10 is less usable than Windows 7 on the touch screen. (Half the new interface doodads don't work at all and the start bar never goes away even when running "modern applications" After a couple weeks trying to get used to it, I decided to roll back... but recovery failed repeatedly. I ended up having to call Dell and order OEM OS and Driver USB drives in order to restore the tablet to itsWin 8.1 factory fresh glory. And yes, I know this is only beta software and not the finished product. I used Windows 8 previews as well, and while they lacked the polish of the finished product, they were ultimately usable and I was happy to test them until release. Windows 10 is awful on the tablet. MS is going to have to do a TON of work to make Win 10 work half as well as 8.1. At this point I have reserversations about ever "upgrading".
  • I do hope you submitted your feedback to Microsoft. Otherwise you wasted your time and money for nothing. For you and other inexperienced beta testers, beta software is never meant for full functionality. Beta software is what it's definition is: FOR TESTING PURPOSES ONLY.
  • There was a major diff in win8 preview and win10 preview and have been very forward with problems. Also if you have problem with metro apps with the start bar even in tablet mode, upper right there is a 'fullscreen' mode for the apps. Also not to be little your intelligence but if you thought it was anywhere near complete then you didn't read the big freaking disclaimer on the download site from Ms and you should stop testing software.
  • I think all you need is Tablet mode from continuum which is not ready yet
  • How do you think the DVP8 works as a work tablet? I have a Lumia 1520 but going into meetings it works be great to have a compact tablet with a stylus that I can write notes with. They're will be many places I go where can't take phone in with me (distribution centres etc) due to security.
  • Personally I don't think the synaptic tech I there yet for a stylus. I have the newest version of the synaptic stylus (after the redesign) and it still is horrible and jumpy. Asus and the wacom is much better.
  • Well the story is MS has acquired N-trig. It would be interesting to see what they do what the acquisition.
  • I installed 10 on a spare SP3 at work, and all I can say is that I hope tablet mode is no where close to being done. 10 is much, much better for the desktop, but a giant leap backwards for the tablet. 8.1 is currently the lesser of two evils. I'm also disappointed that they haven't solved the scaling issue when switching between the dock and undocked. It's annoying that Windows only checks the dpi when logging in.
  • It'll be interesting to find out exactly what the position is with RT tablets...
  • +2520. Even if we get the rumored Windows 10 "lite", you'd think a stripped down version would be ready sooner. I know the full release is priority, obviously, but it would at least make me think it should be nearly ready around the release of Windows 10.
  • Honestly I'm fine with losing the desktop as long as I get a little more features than presently in the touch Office previews.
  • Provided everything you will need is finally migrated to Modern UI (control panel or explorer for example).
  • I only hope we could be able to install and run the new universal apps on our RT devices. I actually like the desktop on my Surface 2, it comes handy sometimes and we haven't seen modern replacements for Explorer (OneDrive won't access network shares), registry editor and command line/powershell
  • I have a Stream 7 tablet but haven't figured out how to install Windows 10 TP on it yet... It keeps saying it "can't install Windows 10" because it's a "compressed operating system". What should I do to get it up and running correctly? Thanks.
  • You have to do a clean iso install
  • Soooo same requirements as Win7 and 8. Neat
  • honestly I think the Venue's start button placement is actually really smart.
  • I don't mind it. I don't actually use it often, however, as Windows 8.1 trained me to swipe from the right and use the soft Windows button -- a gesture I came to love and rely on. A gesture that was removed in Windows 10. Gah.
  • I agree with you. I'm afraid I'm going to miss a lot of Windows 8/8.1 features when W10 is officially released.
  • I recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga 2 10.1" with windows 8.1 and thus far im loving it, the added bonus of getting to run win10 on it will be icing on the cake. I am now completly free from android since swapping out my SHIELD tablet and I'm not missing it at all.
  • Surface 2 should work. Why isn't on the list? Can't wait to install it on that.
  • Exactly, was wondering why it wasn't on the list.
  • Pro 2 works fine. I installed it on mine. No issues.
  • RT hardware doesn't have a build yet I thought.
  • Ok thanks for information
  • The HP Stream 7 and 8 tablets have WimBoot which means part of the partition is used for booting the device and allows more storage for the user. W10TP will not install on these devices. It says right on the website, "cannot install on compressed operating systems". From my experience with W10TP on my Surface Pro 3, you won't want it your tablet. Navigation around the OS is very cumbersome. Also, the HP Stream 7 will get the same version on Win10 for phones--which has not been released yet. Shame on Windows Central for sharing bad info.
  • All current tablets with access to the desktop will retain access, as per MS. The HP7 is an X86 device so will support full W10.
  • Try this:
  • Not interested in an x86 table. Will stick it out with my ivybridge 18"AW.
  • Ummmmm, Ivybridge is x86
  • Had no success with my clovertail ativ smart PC. Installs, but then won't boot.
  • I am running it on my DVP8 and it runs fine, but nothing improves the "phantom tap" problem on the DVP8. I'll wait for the final release to put it on my Asus Vivotab Note 8 (all around better than the DVP, for a small price increase)
  • I thought I was the only one that had both of those tablets. Disappointed in the Dell stylus, so bought the Asus, which I use all day every day. Nice little device (sad that I bought the 32GB version though).
  • Yeah I got the 32GB version of the DVP8, so when the 64GB version of the Asus was on sale at the MS store I grabbed one... So much better.
  • Lenovo thinkpad 8!
  • My Dell Venue 11 Pro is ready.
  • I have been using the newest build on my atom based DV11 pro and it has been running pretty well. With the newest updates I have gotten the best standby performance with this tablet so far!
  • Thats awesome. I get 8 days standby with the mobile keyboard. I wonder how much I will get now with Windows 10.
  • Good to hear that. I'm waiting for the release later this year for mine.
  • How the hell do i get it on my HP Stream 7? I've tried and it says the os is compressed...
  • Not a single tablet is ready for windows 10 until they fix that damn task bar in metro and bring back a lot of touch first features
  • This. It's a torture to use it after Windows 8
  • Amen brother.
  • Can I install the OS to the external storage?
  • The fact that you even ask that question indicates that you should stay away from it.
  • Yes it does
  • Asking for an information is not a matter of shame.... Everyone here r not bill gates like you. You better stay away from replying my post..... If you cant help anyone don't disrespect anyone. It will be better for you. @BaritoneGuy
    And thanks @sporosarcina.
    I actually never used a windows tablet and planning to buy one.
  • I'm pretty sure Windows to Go will be available on final release. I've ran Windows 8 To Go and it runs pretty good if booting from an USB 3 device.
  • Wow! Sounds helpful.....
  • I have the HP Stream 8, for the extra $50 bucks I cost me the extra screen space is well worth it. So far I'm waiting to put Win10 on it. I'm using it on my laptop but from what I hear the Tablet mode isn't quite up to par yet. Really, looking forward to having the same OS on all my devices (L920, Stream 8, HP Envy laptop).
  • Until MS makes the Windows 10 Tablet experience better I would recommend against installing it on any tablet. The switching is awful, and those charms everyone seemed to hate really did have a use on a small tablet for getting aroundf, going to Start, Sharing and getting to settings. Now it's almost impossible to navigate the tablet UI on my Dell VP8Pro. TOO MUCH DESKTOP, not enough tablet.
  • ^^This!!!^^
  • +1
    But you still should install it on a separate position if you can, so you'll be able to provide feedback to fix the OS.
  • I'm glad I did this only for this reason. I had a pop up yesterday that asked how I like tablet mode, and I unloaded on them. Felt good. :)
  • OFF TOPIC, but this new design of post is really really nice! 
  • by the way, you use kind of parallax effect in the main image, why nobody complain about the missing parallax effect in windows 10 for mobiles??? want that in the final OS please!
  • I am  not downloading the windows phone 10 preview too much bugs. Also yes I want parallax effect in windows 10
  • I've tried installing Win10 preview on my HP Stream 7 but I got an error saying that it's not capable of running it. .
  • Did you not read the instructions or the replies to the 8 other posts above that say the same thing? Your stream has a compressed image and unless you want to fully format the device and do a clean install you will have to wait.
  • I had an issue with dell venue 8pro the company said that if I am on w10 next time I request help from customer service my warranty would be voided. They told me my tablet was not designed for w10. That was not nice to hear. I want to keep my w10.
  • Dell venue 8 has constant touch problems, jumping screen input and double keyboard input mistakes. Ten rocks on my surface pro, though.
  • The touch issues are a DVP8 problem, not W10.
  • I use my dell venue pro every day so I didn't want to turn it into a guinea pig. I put it on my other tablet which is a Samsung Ativ 500t smart PC. It runs horribly. I'm not sure if its a compatibility issue or if the OS is still that unfinished.
  • Still rocking a Asus Vivotab Smart... Not even a single dent on it! Love that tablet even after two years of use.
  • How is 10 running on your VivoTab Smart? I experience lots of non-responsiveness when usng touch. Currently on 10130.
  • Can't wait to run Windows 10 on my Stream 7!
  • The Surface Pro 2 should be great with Windows 10 too since the hardware specs are pretty much the same as the SP3. I snagged a SP2 from Best Buy from that post on here from last week and just got it yesterday. That thing is a speed demon compared to my Lumia 2520. I can't wait to see how Windows 10 runs on it.
  • Been running the TP on my Surface Pro from the start works very well.
  • Basically anything that can run Vista. My old Vista laptop is doing remarkable well with it, much better than 8 so far.
  • Can there be Atom phones?
  • I'll go ahead and assume the ASUS VivoTab 8 that I got after returning the HP Stream 7 will work. It has the same processor and double the RAM.  Am I the only one who bought the tablet? No one else ever seems to mention it. 
  • I've been looking for feedback on it because I want to buy one. How do you like it?
  • I like it. The extra RAM and bigger screen and better front facing cam (for Skype) are what made me trade up from the HP Stream 7.  Those things were well worth the $50 for me.  I run a couple of desktop programs and I think the RAM helps.  
  • Yeah, the newer Vivotab 8 (M81C, not the Note) is awesome. I bought it in December to replace my three year old iPad.. -- I'm VERY happy with it. Note that in Europe, it 'only' has 1 GB of RAM, but I don't notice anything really.. If you want a personal review, search for my "Vivotab 8 M81C review" on YouTube :)
  • if it has a compressed image then it is in the same position as the HP.
  • Asus Transformer Book T100
  • I enjoy my Asus Vivo Note 8, great device.
  • Any 1 installed it on a linx 8 yet
  • Anyone running w10 on the Toshiba Encore?
  • Mentioned the venue 8 pro, but not the far superior venue 11 pro
  • Windows Insider updated
  • When and what has changed in the update
  • it is going to be interesting to see bigger 10" windows tablets get the normal Windows 10 full upgrade while the smaller ones will get the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade. if they don't work similar or look identical some people are going to get stumped
  • I thought the "normal" version was for 8" and up. 
  • I reckon the look will be the same but they may function differently ??
  • Any one running win 10 on Lenovo mix 2 10?
  • I just bought ASUS transformer T100TAM.. Is it good enough?
  • I'm confused. Does the article explain if those requirements are actually for the Technical or public preview?
    Also my Surface Pro once installed the TP if I shut it down and then restart I manually it would never leave the black screen till I had to reset to 8.0 three times the same thing.. About 9 hours of trouble x.x
  • Windows technical preview
  • Thank you for clearing that up. Really wasn't sure. Now if only anyone knew to inform me about the Surface Pro 1st Gen issues if they are fixed. I really want to contribute in the beta but I can't as much as I've tried and wanted to...
  • Got tech on main pc running gr8 but can't install on linx 8 coz of compressed os
  • I am running W10 on my Acer Aspire Switch 10 and Surface Pro 2. Works well.
  • if thats the requirement why cant it be installed on an onda v961w 3g tablet its saying am using a compressed version of windows
  • I get the same msg on my linx 8.1
  • I want an 8" device with a high resolution screen, the build quality and size of an iPad mini with either a 4:3 or 3:2 aspect ratio. I have a first gen DVP8 but after having to test the mini for my company the Dell feels like a brick.
  • Now I think I feel a bit more secure about buying a hp stream 7
  • as long as it has an x86 it should be compatible, the bad thing about ARM.. it actually gives more power to OEMs, thats why unless you count on android 3rd party support you are screwed 2-3 years
  • Not sure I'll manage to get 16GB free of my Venue 8 Pro. And I don't have much software installed...
  • What about Toshiba encore 2 1gb ram
  • How about HP Pavilion X2? Should be compatible as well.
  • Is it compatible with my Acer Tab 8 W1?
  • Is winboik T801 ready?
  • My stream7 is ready to go.
  • Lenovo Miix 3 and Asus transformer book?
  • Lenovo all the way. I love the superfish. Lol!
  • I've had the venue 8 pro for a while now and it is just awesome I love it.
  • Can I haz that wallpaper on the toshiba 2 encore write? It looks amazing. Windows Central App for Android- Lenovo IdeaTab A3000
  • Notion ink Cain!
  • I'm waiting until I can get at least 8gb ram for about $800 US
  • Stream 7 is blocked by compressed OS. Requires fresh install from ISO
  • I would love to own Lenovo yoga tablet 2 Anypen. Seems perfect.
  • One thing you didn't mention is the minimum screen resolution requirement. My VivoTab 8 has a screen resolution of 1200x800, and Windows 10 shows a not-so-promising warning that my device doesn't meet the minimum resolution requirement of 1200x900. I hope that isn't a finalized minimum, because a lot of these lower resolution tablets have, and are continuing, to sell pretty well.
  • Hi! Did you install Windows 10 on your Vivotab 8 (M81C)? If so, did you have any issues? I'm doubting to install it... and Asus Support discouraged me to install it.
  • How much does Asus VivoTab 8 cost
  • In US, $149 at online Microsoft store...
  • I'm using DV11P. if DV8P is supported, I guess I'm good to go. But, as this is my main tablet, I will wait for the official release. Just good to know my computer will be supported by Dell. My last laptop was left behind at W7 when W8 was released. And I had to find the drivers on my own to short things out.
  • Encore, first generation, Win10TP, work also.
  • It's too old video link....wanted comparison of all those tablets.
  • The Yoga!
  • I'm not running Windows 10 TP on my HP Stream 7, but glad to know that it should be compatible with the final version of Windows 10 as trying to use the full Desktop Office is such a pain. Will the rest of the Office suite, Access, Publisher & Outlook be getting a Touch friendly version for Windows 10 or will it only be the ones that are available in Preview form in the Windows Store beta?
  • Unable to install it on my yoga tablet 2 10"
  • What about Lenovo Thinkpad 8 Pro?
  • Eve T1 for me.
  • Tried it with ASUS T100TA. It was slow and laggy, and ran into the blue screen of death several times. Good thing was, that 8.1 drivers worked well.
  • No they are not. Windows 10 in tablet mode still sucks. Missing charm bar, and lot of gestures from Windows 8. Win 10 is harder to use on tablet. Because "one click is better than five clicks"
  • Surface 2?
  • Lenovo Miix 2 8 would get Windows 10 updates or not?
  • Sooo...RIP to my 2520??
  • Acer Iconia Tab W500 \o/
  • upcoming desktops "no fuss" ready for windows 10 I can follow/imagine, but tablets is whole different story. In my view this article is published too soon. All the tablets mentioned (even the forgotten ones like the surfac pro 1 and 2!!!) are currently not ready for a "no fuss" experience. It's too soon to say that. Even on my surface pro, if all bugs and issues were resolved, the tablet experience potential is still "meh" at best. Windows 8.1 still is the better, less "fuss" and more natural tablet experience for a windows tablet in my opinion. I think its would be good idea if this article was reviewed in 6 months time. And in general all tablets that are windows enabled should be able to run with no fuss. I think this article is cutting the tablet space for windows tablets too short. 16 Gb is a steep requirement for an OS partition and shouldn't be taken lightly. Price still matters and I think tablet makers will still make 32 and 64 Gb models. That makes 16 Gb a pretty sizeable chunck of memory from a tablet device.
  • I love your article design Simon. What did you use. Sway? also love that paralax effect of the picture at the top. Catchy and kind of proffesional.
  • Unless you offer more App Store choices, no matter all the bells and whistles, WP will be nothing more than an "also participated" footnote.
  • And Microsoft Surface pro 2?
  • I tried installing it on an Acer Aspire switch 10, got denied because of the compressed OS on the Switch.
  • Including the Surface Pro is a little silly since it's a real PC disguised as a tablet. of course it can run Win10, it can run anything a PC can run. I have Win10 running on my Stream 7, which cost me only $80 which is still the price on Microsoft Store.
  • To bad Win 10 isn't ready for Tablets, what a step back for Tablets compared to Win 8.1
  • I have the Lenovo ThinkPad 8, awesome tablet and I have it running Windows 10. It's a little hard to get in the States now and Amazon has a limited stock, but it's an awesome tablet if you want something smaller than a 10" tab.
  • Man, *finally* someone commenting in the Thinkpad 8. I'm about to buy one and opened two threads on the forums. I'm looking for someine who had already tried using with one (either capacitive or active) pen...
  • What about Lenovo Thinkpad 8?
  • I just received the HP Stream 7. It's ready but I'm not quite ready yet. I'm still enjoying the pocket sized full Windows 8.1 goodness. Now several of my coworkers want one. :P
  • acer switch 10 running windows 10 tp runs great with a upgraded ethernet driver installed via usb using rufus using otg adapter to usb
