Doesn't an iPad Mini meet the criteria as much as a Win 8 tablet (albeit it is slightly out of the price range). Any Win8 tablet in that range is going to be 7" or 8" as well, especially if "Win 8" does not include RT.

I am not saying that it is a better option than a Notebook, but why not consider it?

iPad Mini is CAD$419 + keyboard dock puts it well over budget.

Thanks for the review. That's certainly a good price for a laptop, and I think a good choice.

Regarding productivity on Android, I'm currently beta testing Softmaker Office HD, and that's a full PC-like office suite, including a PC style interface. It really transformed the way I felt about productivity on Android.

Still, PC is always a good choice, and for a main computer I would certainly go for it.
