The ASUS Transformer Book T100 (T100TA-C1-GR) is extremely interesting as it's truly a reimagining of the notebooks of 5 years ago. It's thinner, lighter and much faster. It is one tough Windows 8.1 tablet to overlook – more so when it’s attached with an oh-so attractive starting price point of $349 including a keyboard dock!. At its core, you get the best of both worlds with this particular tablet, mainly because it’s one part tablet, one part notebook. Best of all, you’re not going to be spending a fortune on picking it up.
