Requesting recommendations for a Windows tablet/hybrid to replace my Nexus 7. I want to remain diverse in the devices I use. That was the one reason I, an Apple user, bought my Nexus 7 in 2012 instead of another iPad. I also loved the Nexus 7 form factor. I mainly needed it for the Kindle App (textbooks), reviewing documents (PDFs, Google Docs, Microsoft Office), and the occasional movie in bed. It worked perfectly, but is starting to feel slow. I loaded Windows 10 on an extra PC, i3 with 2GB RAM, and I'm impressed with the OS and for my next tablet would like to continue playing with Windows. The problem is that from my research, most of the Windows tablets being sold have crapware on them. This is one of the things that turned me off of Windows more than 10 years ago (use Macs and Chromebooks). If I buy an iOS tablet, I know what I'm getting. Same with an Android tablet. But I have no idea what I'll get buying a Windows device and I really don't feel like hunting through the registry, trying to defunk it. Other than the Surface Pro 3, are there devices that don't have manufacturer products preloaded? Are there pure Windows 8/8.1 tablets in the 8" form factor, preferably with 2GBs RAM and HDMI?
