I run my DCC layout with a Windows 7 laptop connected via USB to an Arduino clone with motor shield and 15 VDC power supply.
I've started using a handheld wireless mini-tablet for the throttle, rather than the decoderpro throttles.
The laptop and mini-tablet communicate on my wireless home network.
I start decoder pro to energize the layout, then the laptop slides under the layout, but it is bulky.

Can I replace my PC laptop with JMRI -with a touch screen Windows 10 tablet
Looking at a SmarTab 10.1" 2in1 Windows 10 Tablet 32GB 2GB Ram With Detachable Keyboard.

If the tablet is actually running win 10 it should work fine. What I don't know is if there is a "tablet" version of win 10, that might pose a problem. I would check on a JMRI forum, if its possible, some one has already done it!

The JMRI web site (jmri.org) mentions that JMRI works on a Raspberry Pi, You might consider that as an inexpensive option. It might take a HDMI monitor, keyboard and mouse to get it working.
