Another view point http://blog.laptopmag.com/top-windows-tablets-hybrids?slide=1

Yet another take http://www.cnet.com/pictures/best-tablets-hybrids-laptops-and-all-in-ones-for-windows-8-1-pictures/

But these aren't the only Win8.1 Tablets, there's a plethora of Atom based units but then they aren't really competitors.
Dell Venue 11 Pro (7139) is the closest competitor IMO with i5 4300Y. Atom based units are a cut below.
I'm not aware of another tablet that sports an i5 U series CPU though. The Dell and HP use the i5 Y series CPU ... for a little less performance.

The New ThinkPad Helix 2, The New HP 2 and 1's (Pro line), Dell Venue 11 Pro...

None are using as high res screen like the SP3,

The upcoming helix 2 is the only one that mildly interests me, but I think it will have worse performance than the i5 and i7 SP3s

When I was in the market I compared it with the yoga 2 Pro, which I bought because the best buy guy said it was a better deal, and on paper it was... After a few freezing and crashing, and unresponsive touch pad I gave up and returned it. A new more informative employee was there and guided me to the sp3 I'm glad he did... Even with half the ram it's still a better machine than the yoga.

It has replaced my laptop (MacBook pro), and my IPad air which I gave to my wife. This thing is awsome!

Huh?

You returned a perfectly awesome SP3 to wait for something that's not even in the rumor mill yet?

You might as well hold out for the SP5.. Heck make that the SP6..
Totally agree with that, by then you will be able to charge your device with a potato and run it for a week. Although most will be saying, what's a potato :D
