    Hi all,

    I'm trying to do Google searches at the folks but their internet is the slowest thing I've ever encountered and it's nigh on impossible to work with.

    I'm humouring the idea of getting a 4k tablet but want it to be easily portable - ~10" being the sweet spot. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. Windows 10 is pretty much a key requirement - I want to install screen calibration software.

    From what I've been able to see (SLOW internets remember), not yet. There's some 20" offerings, but that won't really work when I'm trying to edit photos on a plane...

    If 4K is non negotiable you'll unfortunately be looking 4k 13" laptops with a touch screen as no 4K tablets exist at 10".
    That does however entail a very hefty premium:

    (of course it kicks the living hell out of any actual tablet if you can put up with the size and price, I have the cheaper 15" version and its brilliant).

    The 12.3 inch Surface Pro 4 is 2736x1824 and there are a few other 12 inch tablets/convertibles (from ASUS, Dell and Lenovo at least) that use a 2880x1920 display. I think that's about as high a resolution as you can get with anything about that size that runs Windows and is reasonably mainstream. That is about 300PPI, which is a lot.

    EDIT: HP Spectre x2 12.3 inch is a nice round 3000x2000: https://www.theverge.com/2017/8/4/16091268/hp-spectre-x2-2017-laptop-tablet-convertible-review

    EDIT EDIT: There have been at least a couple of 12.5inch windows tablets with a "proper" 16:9 4k resolution (3840x2160): Aspire Switch 12 S, Dell XPS 12.

    even Wacom's own 13" tablet is 2560x1440

    A quick google and on the windows front, the MS Surface Book [3,000 x 2,000] is as close as you'll get to 4k at <=13", there is meant to be an ASUS 13" convertible with a 4k [or close to it] screen but like **** can I actually find it for sale anywhere...

    Thanks for all the responses guys.

    Well, unfortunately I'm nowhere near as flush as I used to be, so this will have to be a pipe dream for the moment. At least there are 12" options, even if they do cost an arm and a leg and next of kin.

    P.S. Folks' internet is 64KB/s at best. It hurts.
