Asus Transformer Book T100

Best Cheap Windows 8 Hybrid

Key features:
  • Excellent value
  • Flexible design
  • Great battery life
There's a whole host of Windows 8 hybrids out there and in the Asus Transformer Book T100 this is a laptop and tablet mash-up that offers the best value for money. The 10-inch device runs on full Windows 8 so you can install desktop applications to get that traditional desktop experience. It weighs about the same as a light ultrabook and the hinged-style keyboard is much higher quality than most Bluetooth keyboards.

The 1,366 x 768 pixel screen will not blow you away but it's acceptable considering the price. The T100 has enough under the hood to perform everyday tasks and cope with multitasking. Throw in an impressive 12-hour battery life and this tablet-laptop Windows 8 hybrid is the best budget option available at the moment. And if you're worried about the size of the screen, it has an HDMI port so you can connect an external monitor when at home.

Price: £349.99
