Primarily it depends on your design. A basic design will run on pretty much every decent tablet available nowadays.

A design with advanced funtionality may need more processing power. A better processor (like I5) would be definitely a plus in such case. More memory (4GB RAM) is also a good idea.

The design in question is 4 channel Multivariate Coherence. Not one that would make huge demands on the processor.

Would this be sufficient.

Intel? Pentium? Gold Processor 4425Y
8th Gen Intel? Core? m3 Processor

There is no way to tell precisely I am afraid. You will need to try it and see how it performs. It might be good to have an option to return the tablet.

Tablets can be slower than desktops or even laptops, so maybe try to compare some "CPU benchmarks" for the processor you have in mind and select one which is faster on a single thread, like here: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/singleThread.html or https://www.cpubenchmark.net/midlow_range_cpus.html

Jarek,

thanks. It after looking up the processor info it does seem that the core i3 is the better choice. Found a good refurbished one at newegg.com

they have a good return policy just in case something goes wrong
