Absolute most powerful work-horse tablet out there?

May 30, 2013
Hey guys,

My boss is looking for a power-house tablet for work. He does a ton of on-the-run remote support to his desktop for CAD, photoshop etc while out in the field. He's looking for something very high-end and money is no real object.

Currently we have an ASUS TF700 but we plan on giving it to charity as part of a local raffle to support children with disabilities and he wants to upgrade to the next bigger-better thing. Should we just get another TF700 or is there something much more powerful out there?

Whatca guys think? Android OS preferred, but could entertain Window OS. It will need to be able to do remote support, handle about 1 billion emails a day, and pretty much anything else that we can throw at it.



If you get a device that runs Windows 8 make absolute certain you avoid Windows RT. You cannot run .EXE files on a Windows RT device - that means no AutoCAD, no accounting programs, no Outlook.

If you want Android your best bets would be a Sony Xperia, Samsung Galaxy Note, or Google Nexus 10.

Alternately if you want a 7" tablet or you want Windows 8:
