Hi I’m looking to upgrade my tablet. I’ll be using it primarily as a netbook for coding on the go. Mainly c/c++ that requires long compilation times, so I’m looking for something with good CPU grunt for the price. However I’d like to stick with a convertible or tablet.
I’ll be using Linux only (probably arch) . Windows will be deleted the day I unbox it.
I currently use an Asus transformer t100ta with a 500gb SSD in the keyboard dock, but the slowness, lack of ram and tiny low res screen is getting me down.
- Fast (Kaby Lake, ideally 8GB RAM)
- 10.1 inch screen or bigger, at least 1080p but would prefer HiDPI
- Upgradeable SSD
- At least the WiFi and display drivers working in Linux (or likely to on the mainline kernel) .
- Reasonable keyboard or keyboard cover.
Looks like one of the best choices is still the Cube Mix Pro… But it’s not a looker, and is 2 years old… Are there any newer options?
The Knote 8 and Teclast X6 Pro look decent but I can find very little info about them.
Thanks in advanceJanuary 13, 2019 at 4:07 pm #150015

Teclast X6 Pro I hope to have soon. It looks the most promising. KNote 8 was okay but a bit overpriced. Some minor issues

Thanks. I might go ahead and order one. Can’t find a good source for the keyboard though.
I’m hoping it’s a real SSD and not emmc, and that it won’t be glued together. In your experience are Teclast products screwed together?
