Hello Tribe Folks, looking for some windows love.

Im looking for a tablet, full windows not rt and it should have a active digitizer for my note taking. I have seen some videos on youtube about note taking, mostly its surface pro 2. Its out of my range and i already have a mbpr so im not looking to throw away money on some thing expensive. My range is max $500, it could be 8-10+ inches and should be tablet form factor only.

Any experienced folks out here, what do you say about note taking on wacom active digitizer ? is it possible to take fast note, most of the videos i have seen people are very careful while note taking on tablet but if that is the case meh.

Hows the flash performance on atom tablets, is it able to play 1080p videos on youtube or netflix ? and lastly can i play some steam games like aoe3?
