That's the problem, there are Windows 2-in-1s similarly priced, from both Chinese and American manufacturers, which will offer more for the money and you could easily run Android on them similar to the Surface 3 with AMI DuOS ( ). I just dislike seeing such crippled and limited products selling at the same price tag...

Find me a 2 in 1 that is as light as a Samsung Tab. The reason it's my go to device for bedtime browsing and movie watching is its weight. My tab is 298 g Do you bring your surface to bed?

Yes I use my Surface Pro during bed time a lot. I don't need to carry it while in bed, the kickstand pops out and keeps it standing on my side table while my hands remain relaxed. Similar to this: Regardless, if weight is your only concern, there are 2-in-1s like this: The top half alone would weigh equivalent to your Galaxy Tab, but as you can see, it dual boots Anroid and Windows. Still cheaper than this Tab E 8.0...there's probably a lot more just that website alone.

Whichever work for you. I use my Dell 7140 for all lot of thing including playing with Remix OS. Bring it to bed is not as comfortable as my tab S 8.4 especially eBook and manga reading.

Samsung tab s pro was probably the only Samsung tablet even worth looking at, but after comparing it to the new XPS 12, it seems Samsung can't make tablets at all, then again, no 3rd party really takes android seriously on tablets.

Really? The Galaxy Tab S Pro seems like a much better tablet than the XPS 12. The XPS 12 is heavier and much thicker than the S Pro and it also has much worse battery life.
