Default Should buy a Dell Venue Pro 7140?

I found a great deal on a refurbished Venue Pro 7140 with a M-5y10c CPU, 4GB of ram and 64GB SSD for under $200. It has Windows 8.1, but I will put Windows 10 Enterprise on it. Since this is an aged tablet think i should go for it?

I can also possibly get an Acer Aspire switch alpha 12 (i3, 4GB, 128GBSSD) for $379.99. So almost $200 more for the Acer. The Acer is new, but I guess I am having a hard time spending double. Though, its cheaper and better (Spec wise) than the Surface 3 with an Atom.

Should I stop being cheap and just spend $379.99 or go for the refurb Dell to play with and hack around?

But for $200 bux, I'd probably buy it.

Default HP instead?

Found a HP Spectre x2 12 for $369. Same specs, but with a newer Core M proc. Comes with a keyboard. I think would be a better deal than the Dell. Still waiting to see if I can get that Acer.

Was going to get the Spectre refurb for $369 and ended up getting a brand new one for $370! I have always wanted a Surface like Windows tablet and I figure if this doesn't give me the experience I was hoping for I'll just return and get an iPad or Android device. Amazon prime

I was thinking I'd like to get one of these:

Gives you a Wacom stylus, powerful processor, and a high res screen. Might be one to consider you decide to go Android.

Thanks brother. If I don't like the Windows tablet experience I think I am going to go Android and I'll check this one out. I love my iPhone, but to be honest wasn't as much in love with the iPad.
