    I want a tablet that runs Linux proper and doesn't heat the house up. Something with a large amount of RAM (like 16GB) would be great. I love my Android tablets for being silent, energy efficient, but I can't run Qt Creator on those to do my development work and the RAM at 1GB is too tight.
    Something like HP Elite x3 1013 G3 (status) and Dell Latitude 7285 (strictly for usage without keyboard, as there is hardware issues with keyboard that Dell is not going to resolve, and Linux-specific issues in BIOS on top) could give you 16 GB RAM. If you are ok with 8 GB RAM then there is Lenovo Miix 520 (for now only without keyboard and pen) and many other tablets.

      Doesn't sound that upstream though.

      I guess it only applies to intel SoC's.
