My budget for the new tablet is:

Up to $1000

What are the primary uses for this tablet (IE: email, web browsing, playing games, etc)?

Running PowerPoint, email, very little web browsing

What Operating System are you used to or would prefer if any (leave blank if you're unsure)? 

Currently running Win7, reluctant to move to Win8 but willing to go to Android to get what I want.

How big of a screen would you want? 

Up to 13 in.

Will this tablet be for college, work, home etc?

Work

Do you want to be able to do two things at once, or one thing at a time?

 Mostly, one thing at a time.

Do you want USB ports to plugin flash drives?

Yes, and I also need HDMI for the projector.

 

Thanks for any advice you have.  Shel

Take a look at Microsoft Surface pro tablets. It fits your budget, it's powerful, it has USB ports and a DisplayPort.

Thanks, Digital, for that opinion.  I have been leaning in that direction myself.  I'm thinking that the best plan might be to wait for Win10 (or whatever it's called) with the new browser (whatever that's called) and then go for it for a Surface Pro.  The old VIAO is past it's best-before date.  Cheers, Shel

Ah alright. Keep in mind the Windows 10 official release will take quite some time(several months) and new better tablets might emerge.
