Best Cheap Windows 8 Hybrid Tablet

Key features: Intel Atom processor, 64 GB storage, 1,366 x 768 resolution screen

The good:
  • Amazing value
  • Flexible design
  • Good battery life

The bad:

  • Screen not as good as rivals
The Asus Transformer Book T100 is a great value 10-inch full Windows 8 tablet that can also work as a decent laptop thanks to its solid removable keyboard dock.

Weighing as much a light ultrabook, keyboard and tablet combined, the hinged-style keyboard is much higher quality than most Bluetooth keyboards and offers a decent amount of travel given its petite dimensions.

The 10.1-inch, 1,366 x 768 pixel screen will not blow you away but it's acceptable considering the price. Powered by the same Intel Atom Z3740 CPU and 2GB RAM found inside the 8-inch Dell Venue Pro 8 tablet, the T100 has enough under the hood to perform everyday tasks and just about cope with some 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, if you want a Windows tablet.

Price: £280/$300
