The Asus Transformer Book T100 feels like a necessary maturing of the budget Windows tablet.
It’s practical, pretty powerful, has a half-decent screen and its flexible design mitigates the lack of games and apps designed for Windows tablets – compared to Android and iOS tablets.
It’s not perfect – there are clear generational improvements to be made in the screen tech in particular, and the trackpad needs a tweak – but this is tablet isn’t half bad.
I liked the Asus Vivo RT tablet when I reviewed that and this is very similar. Not too bad so far.
