Looking for a Windows Tablet

I have bounced around a few models already, but I wanted to see if someone here has any opinions or can suggest one that I may have missed.

Looking at something in the 8" form factor. Was tempted by the Surface 3 and I used one a while ago. Price is good for a used one but it is a bit larger than what am looking for and it charges too slow.

Looks like it is between the HP 608 4gb ram and x5-z8500 processor (ungodly overpriced and hard to find) and the new Dell Venue 8 Pro 2016 refresh with the same specs as above.

Can anyone think of a decent non Chinese tablet that is using a Cherry Trail chip and is around 8".

XiaoMi Mi Pad 2 uses the Intel Atom X5-Z8500 which is Cherry Trail I believe.

I dunno if my Dell Venue 8 Pro is a good or a bad example.
All I can say is, it wasn't the least bit useful. Wasted money. Frown
