Thanks to its light weight of 11.92 oz (338 g), it's also easy to hold with just one hand – something very important for an 8” tablet.

If your job or hobby requires a pretty large tablet display that is still somewhat portable, the NotePRO might entice you with its excellent suite of apps and multitasking abilities, with its high-res display, and S Pen stylus modes.
