Hi Everyone,

I am interesting in purchasing a Windows 8 tablet for my work. However the tablet must have a very good battery life, over 8 hours of active use. Additionally I need at least 10 inches of screen real estate.

If anybody has any suggestions on a suitable model they will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

Acer Iconia W511 has 18 hours battery life (talking about constantly typing), HDMI, 3G, is 10", is light.
I own one and thought 18 hours was a lie on the box, but it actually is 18 hours.

Thinkpad tablet 10 beats all of g-unit's selections (some of which only get 5 hours under real usage). I regularly get 9-10 out of my thinkpad tablet 2 and I think the 10 (the successor) is a little better.

Also the Acer Iconia W511 only gets 7-9 hours of life without the keyboard with it's battery attached, so that's not a like for like comparison. Of course you can attach an external battery to any of these tablets and get a lot more life.
