    Well, my presumption is that you'll need something that runs a full OS to use the full version of Artrage- either Windows (Xp, 7, Vista, etc) or Mac. If the device has an iOS then you can use the App but not the full version.

    If you want to run the full version of Artrage on a portable device, you'll need to look at stuff like convertible tablet pc's. There's lots of used ones on ebay for around 500$. Most of the current batch of slates are more of "entertainment slates" with underpowered processors or mobile OS's.

    I'm not sure about what the tablets you've mentioned run, but if you can find out if they use a full version of Mac or Windows, then you'll know if you can run the full version of Artrage on it or not.

    Good luck!

    As Screenpainter points out these are all android OS running on ARM processors. So currently artrage wont run on them.

    Windows 8 when it comes out will run on ARM processors, which will allow you to run the windows version of artrage on these cheaper types of tablets if you install it as your OS.

    With only around 1 gig of ram and around 1ghz processor you would be only just over the minimum requirements for artrage so how well it ran would be another matter (as noted by Steve in his post). Also they are capacitive touch screens (are not wacom pen enabled) which means they don't track your finger/stylus very well and do not support pressure sensitivity.

    Juz, still, that sounds great then being able to run full version artrage on a portable device.
    how that will compare to artrage on ipad and how it performs will be interesting indeed.
