After switching to Adobe CC I installed LR4 on a couple of tablets, a Surface Pro and a Dell Venue 8 Pro. They both have the power to run LR4 although importing and applying presets to a lot of RAW files at once is pretty slow, especially on the Dell Venue 8. Also, generating previews takes quite a bit longer as well, so I don't recommend 1:1 previews.
The Dell only has an 8" screen and to me, it's pretty tough to edit with. The Surface isn't too bad with a stylus, plus it has a mini HDMI output so you can always plug it into a larger monitor.
The tablet is was looking at was the Dell Venue 11 Pro (64 GB) model. I got to play with one at work (I'm in IT) and I liked it alot. I agree that an 8 inch tablet would be a pain for editing on, I have a Google Nexus 7 which is fine for displaying pics or reading from but too small for actual work.

Are you part of the CC? If so, Lightroom Mobile only works on iPads right now but you would be able to sync collections between your main PC and the iPad so any edits made on the iPad would be reflected on the PC. Sadly, it doesn't sync smart collections.
I am a CC member. I'm waiting for the Android version of Mobile to come out since I am currently have an Android phone and tablet.

Not sure what you are looking to spend but something like the Surface Pro would probably be ideal for you. You can get some good deals on the original surface pro vs the surface pro 2 if you look around, although you can get the pros 2 with 8GB of memory instead of 4.
I do have the v1 of the Pro and have used it on vacations etc. It is eseentially a tablet ultrabook
Right now, I am in the "what specs do I need stage". Once I figure out what I need, I'll start figuring out my budget. The Surface tablets are nice but I think they are overpriced at retail compared to other models. If I find a deal on one, I'd consider it.
