I am looking for find a Windows based tablet to run MS Access. Does anyone have suggestion?

Will Access run successfully on Microsoft Surface Pro 6 or Pro (5th Gen)?

Will Access run on Samsung Galaxy Book tablets?

Many thanks for the guidance.

Hi. Not sure about Galaxy but Access should run on Surface Pro.

Does the Galaxy have a Windows Operating System?

Surface Pro would definitely be good enough but its expensive
No idea about the Galaxy specification though it does run Windows and the advert I saw offers 1 year Office 365 in the price

I've been using a Linx 1010 tablet for the past 3 years. Windows 10 OS, 32GB hard drive & 2GB RAM.
Some models allow an SD card to expand the drive capacity
Its well built and I got it with a detachable keyboard (which I only rarely use as its quite heavy)
I installed Office 2010 including Access and it works fine though inevitably a bit slowly on complex queries with only 2GB RAM

Much cheaper than a Surface but then the spec is lower.
If you spend slightly extra for a 4GB model, it should be more than good enough

Hi JN: No on the Galaxy that I have (unless there is a non-android one out there somewhere that I do not know about). I have a Samsung Galaxy tablet here in front of me and it has the Android operating system - not compatible with Access (although versions of Excel, Word, PowerPoint, OneDrive, OneNote and Skype came on the tablet). Sure would be nice if MS DID have an Android version of Access. I could use that.

If there IS a Windows Samsung Galaxy tablet, then perhaps you could load Access there.

Thank you to all that replied. I hadn't considered a Linux but will.

Samsung Galaxy Book runs Windows 10.

Assume you meant Linx rather than Linux

Hi: Just another note ...

QUOTE
Samsung Galaxy Book runs Windows 10.

Actually, the Samsung Galaxy Book is a PC (2-in-1) rather than strictly just a tablet. And it runs, according to the specs I have seen, Windows 10 S Mode, limiting what you can load on it. Plus it is about $1,000.

Just some additional information, for what it is worth, in case your guys are still watching ...

It would be nice, IMHO, to have a small, much less expensive, true tablet that runs Access.

Regards,
Joe

That's exactly what I have now with the Linx tablet. Windows 10 Home (not S). Cost approx. £150 GBP. Plenty of hard drive space for Office 2010 in my case or 365 if preferred

The earlier link I gave for a Galaxy Book tablet also has Windows 10 Home (not S). See post #6.

Ah, yes, I see what you are talking about. That's the Galaxy Book2 with the full Windows. I was looking at the Galaxy Book. Still expensive.

Sounds like Linx is a good solution, with a good price.

Regards,
Joe
