I would highly recommend a trusted brand, Asus or Dell etc, therefore id recommend either the Dell venue pro(http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Venue-Pro.../dp/B00FEE7B1I)

or

The Asus t100ta, http://www.amazon.com/Transformer-T1...ords=asus+t100

Thanks, I prefer Dell and i do not want a laptop. But the screen size is not enough for me, do u have other recommendations?

PS: I hope the price should not be high or it will exceed my budget.

I'd say it would depend on what features your looking for: 10" screen vs 8", HDMI out, Dedicated USB port, Wacom Digitizer, 1080 screen resolution.

That's really the main differences on the tablets right now as most the cheaper ones feature almost the exact same atom processor and 2 GB ram.

My Opinion: (These exclude the more expensive Core based tablets)

Best for Price - Dell Venue 8 Pro

Best for Productivity - Asus Transformer Book and Keyboard Dock

Others:

Lenovo Thinkpad 8 - Gives you a 1080 screen and a HDMI port

Asus VivoTab Note 8 - Wacom Digitizer
