I bought an ASUS TF300T including the docking station. With the docking
station attached, it functions pretty much as a netbook, but with a much
better screen. The docking station provides a keyboard and full-sized
USB and SD card sockets, and a second battery giving a total battery
life of around 15 hours.
I've installed SCID on the go, it's better than advertised in that it
can create SI4 databases. It can also download direct from some sites
including TWIC. Unfortunately, one download == one database, so each
week of TWIC goes into its own database. It's crook when downloading a
tournament's games, round by round.
It comes with critter. I've also found droidfish, based on stockfish
(and it's UI is loaned to SCID on the go) and Stockfish.
One thing to remember when programming for tables is that "mouse clicks"
are done with fingers and thumbs which are not very precise. And my
tablet notices if my finger or thumb hovers near the screen - actual
contact isn't required and this is often interpreted as a long press,
akin to a double click, with generally undesirable consequences -
instead of SCID advancing move by move, it skips to the end.
