    Hey I've been looking for anyone who has tried the PC software on a windows tablet. Would it work. It seems it just needs a USB connection to the tablet. Anyone tried it?

    Yes many have , if its a true windows 8.1 tablet with usb it would be no different than a desktop,

    Some may need an OTG adapter though, a couple dollars at most to buy on Amazon.

    Definitely works on a Surface 3 Pro. The only issue I have with the HP Stream 7 is the size of the display, which makes the screen confusing.

    I am getting a WinBook TW100 delivered tomorrow for field use. It runs Windows 8.1 with an Intel Atom processor. The 7" is only $75! I went with the 10" for $179 due to it's USB3, HDMI out, etc.

    The cheaper 7" model has USB2 and I believe an HDMI but I felt it would be to small a screen to really be productive. I plan to use mine for work tasks while traveling also.

    grab a stylus, it makes the keyboard and actions a lot easier if using for any length of time,
    I got one with a 15 case at amazon for my 7
