Nvidia shield tablet
« on: 02:55 PM - 07/28/14 »

http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/nvidia-shield-tablet-review,1.html

So I became interested in getting a tablet to pass some time at work since I may be getting stuck on the graveyard shift... I was mainly looking at something like an asus transformer but I saw this nvidia thing coming out. I may get it after ppl get hands on reviews out later this week. Any thoughts, opinions, concerns?

I have a shield portable, its a great device in all honesty, going to use it to config my xim4 (only android device I have right now anyways :P)

Nvidia does good work, probably the best android tablet in terms of power

Lol, I switch between nights and days every 4 weeks on my job, and on nights we don't hardly do anything.  3-4 hours worth of labs on a 12 hour shift.  So naturally I bring in my xbox or PC and play games.  No online mode though, but whatever. 

That dablet does look pretty sick.  Is there a way to use mouse and keyboard on it?

good question, i highly doubt it though just from speculation.

yeah, because it wouldn't make sense for a product marketed towards PC gamers to be able to use kb/m...

as corporate logic dictates.

I hear you bro... id love it. I guess well have to wait and see. Though the controller has a trackpad on it so im pretty sure the idea isnt far fetched.
