In total, the tablet and dock solution weighs over 1.5kg which, for a solution with a 36Whr battery (and 3-4hrs usage) isn't much but as a hot-desking / round-the-house solution, the Acer Iconia Tab could perform well.

Kupa X11, 10.1", 1019gm

Gigabyte S1081, 10.1", 895gm
Dell Latitude ST, 10.1", 816gm
With a focus on business, the Latitude ST offers a hi-resolution screen and long battery life along with basic connectivity options with full-size ports. The casing is rubberised for grip. Capcative and Digitiser inpout layers are included. The optional docking station adds Gigabit Ethernet and comes with a keyboard. The 'Oaktrail' Z670 isn't a powerful CPU so multi-tasking will be limited. If the SSD is fast, it will help improve Windows 7 performance, otherwise it could feel quite sluggish.
