I have read about various tablets that use similar programs or software that allows basic functions, but is there one that utilizes the full version of MS Office? Or should I wait for the Windows 8 tablet later this year?

There are quite a few that Windows based tablets, having existed for over a decade now. One of the current ones to consider is the Acer W500, which gives you the best of both worlds with its included board dock.

Another option that just became available is OnLive, which was formerly a game server that let you have a screen to a game that requires a high end computer on your tablet. The game is actually played on their server. You just get changes to the screen.

Anyway they're now doing the same thing with Microsoft Office. I think there are several price levels beginning with $5 a month. This is been available for Ipads for a couple of weeks and just became available for Android tablets as well.

I have no idea which versions of Android will support it, but basically you get the full microsoft office on a tablet. You don't have to buy office, just pay for their service. Presumably it's all legal and with Microsoft's blessing because OnLive is a legitimate company.

I've seen a lot of reviews of this service on the internet. I haven't read any of them; just their headlines and more obvious comments.

I once wrote a system that did this for a company to use in a particular situation and the idea is very workable, and that was on hardware that was a lot slower than today's tablets.
