Cool Windows Tablet with possibilities

Post by halfnormal » Thu Dec 24, 2015 6:26 pm

Came across this while cruzing the interwebs;
PiPo X8 Dual Boot Mini PC 7 Inch Touch Screen Intel Z3736F Win10 & Android 4.4 2GB 64GB
http://www.pipo-store.com/pipo-x8-dual- ... -64gb.html

There is a YouTube video here of someone reviewing it;

Looks like it can be bought for around $110.00. Form factor is nice for a controller.

I bought a refurbished HP Stream 11 Windows laptop (glorified tablet really but no touch screen) and it works perfectly with UGS and my SO2. I also have a refurbished HP Stream 7 Windows tablet ($60) and it also works perfectly with UGS and the SO2. Both the Stream 11 and 7 are running Windows 10.
No longer have a Shapeoko, but use a machine of my own design...

I got one of those 130 acer tablets during the black Friday sale its pretty good. I like it because it came with windows 10 and a keyboard that makes it like a laptop. Runs my laser and SO3 software just fine.
