Another caveat is the storage space available. While the promos might say 16 or 32GB, some of this can be used up for the OS and some mem chunks might be reserved. Although some tables are expandable via an SD card (micro or otherwise) this may be for data only, not applications.
Just something to be aware of when going on the shopping spree :-) Salvador

The only real difference between a Windows 10 tablet and a low end Win10 PC
is the lack of a keyboard. Both run full Win10.
Its a different story if you're looking an a Windows RT based system.
That's not full Windows, and it ran on ARM based CPUs.
