Best option could be to buy a faster version 32GB+HDD, replace HDD with SSD and use HDD as ext. backup. SSD read/write is cca 2x eMMC, but much faster then HDD. Following, with cca 80 Eur additional costs (128GB SSD) the storage problem is solved and the overall performance is very responsive.

Secondly, I'd like to mention that all(!) 8 inch tablets (Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba, Acer, Asus) are difficult to use as desktop replacements since they have just one usb port simultaneously used for powering (unfortunately, a separate power connector is missing and docking is troublesome). Only Toshiba/Acer has available hdmi, only Lenovo usb 3.0, and of course, without keyboard and docking. Moreover, desktop work on 8 inch tablet is quite stressing. If we assume comparable weights of 10 inch(550g) and 8 inch(450g) tablets, then Asus T100 is very versatile and cheap option on the market. Thank you, Asus
It gives you less than half the battery runtime, it gives you more heat, more weigh and a bloody fan. Bay Trail isn't a performance CPU, it's a fanless tablet 'good enough' CPU.
In fact, A6-1450 is a 15W design. Compare it to a Haswell 15W design and you get thrice the power. And still more battery life.
People won't buy subnotebooks or tablets thinking in absolute performance. Performance per watt is king here and that being the case, Temash's 2009 notebook battery runtimes shouldn't even be a contender here.
4 x Atom. Bay Trail-T is supposed to eradicate the performance disadvantages of its predecessors. It wants to do this with a CPU Turbo and now four cores, but is that enough for the right balance of battery runtimes and reasonable Windows performance?
