I ended up going with a compromise and I am getting a laptop with a touch screen instead.
I'm going with the Refurbished aspire m5-m83p-6637... --- *is a fan of the Nats, Caps, and Wizards*

Not a bad choice. Screen is a little gross (too low rez for me) but I think you picked a decent laptop. --- An artist is a creature driven by demons. He dont know why they choose him and hes usually too busy to wonder why.

Nook HD+ is a great budget tablet at $179. --- "There's always money in the banana stand." 3DS FC: 3738-0451-3244
I think I'll definitely need a screen cleaner for this. But the laptop itself is very cool. --- *is a fan of the Nats, Caps, and Wizards*

I think the think pad tablet 3 that is coming out soon is pretty good. Although, that one might be a bit out of your price range.
The Think Pad 8 with bay trail has really good specs, and is about 8 inches.
I also used the Dell Venue Pro 8 for a few months and that one was really great for me too. It should be within your budget for sure. I only returned it reluctantly because I decided to wait until Cherry Trail processors come out, but besides that, it did everything my laptop could. It had the full Windows 8 OS as well.

Windows 8 tablets are the best tablets on the market right now. You get an actual operating system. Not an OS that is only good for media consumption (iOS/Android). --- Sig.

Ultrabooks>>>>tablets. Unless you're getting a surface pro 3 tablet I'd say you should go ultrabooks or bust. --- *is a fan of the Nats, Caps, and Wizards*
