I am using an ---ASUS Transformer Book 10.1" T100TA-C1-RD(S) Detachable
2-in-1 Touchscreen Laptop, 64GB (RED)--ordered from Amazon
It did take the latest update to work this well...but it really is nice now.
It is the size of an ipad and about 1.5 thickness of it..very lite and goes
Any big major work I will email it to myself for work on my major computer
with a very large hard drive and faster RAM.
