Thanks, @Denovich. That's one of the reasons I'm considering the notebook as well. BT peripherals for tablets are too fiddly for my taste. Would avoid any OTG cable pitfalls too.
I ran Parallels and Win XP some years ago. But I don't really want to pay the "Microsoft tax" again for a current Windows license. I like the idea of physically separate systems, in part because I'm running out of SSD space on my MBP. Might be able to run a VM on one of the desktop Macs (with larger HDD) instead.
Thanks for making me think this through before blowing money on a Chinese tablet.
