This month, my Writers Workbench column takes a look at a couple of Windows tablets -- but not the one you've heard most about, the Microsoft Surface. There's a much wider world of such tablets out there, with some very good options. These two may offer a bit less than the Surface in their specs, but they're also much less expensive and should provide more than enough for most people.
(I also didn't review the Surface because...well, Microsoft didn't sent me one. They didn't send me one of the original Surfaces the year before either. I have no idea why not. Everyone else I've contacted about a review unit has. And Microsoft has always been outgoing in supplying review units of their other products in the past. Their explanation with the Surface has always been a lack of review devices to send out -- but, guys, you're Microsoft, I can't believe you don't have enough product.... But, for whatever the reason, I haven't been able to get a Surface and therefor can't review on. On the other hand, this lets me focus on the other options,)

As I've noted each month, it's a huge, convoluted bother to re-code the entire article with all its embedded photos and other links. And since it already exists in pristine form on the Writers Guild website (for whom the column is initially written) and on the Huffington Post, it's just SO much easier to link to one of these here. I've chosen the WGA version because it's the source, includes a few more graphics, and also has the "TWW Notes" at the end, for brief comments on other issues.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
