A friend has a Chuwi dual windows/android thing that he loves.

Don't know if that ticks your boxes?

The specs on that thing look horrible. It’s on an ancient version of Android too. I’d avoid.

He's had the 10" for the last year & 1/2 or so and has just passed that on to his daughter and replaced it with the 12" one so it must be fairly robust.

Concur. It's absurdly expensive for what it is.

I'm happy with it being 10 inches. I think 12 inches would be unwieldy and would be a pain to lug around.
Plus it would make my balls look tiny.

As long as its not for a woman. Otherwise she'd be all "how typical of you to claim that this is 12 inches"
