ASUS Transformer Book 10.1inch Detachable 2-in-1 Touch Laptop

ASUS Transformer Book 10.1inch is awesome laptop, and comes with office, but has one fatal flaw. It can't handle power well at all. It comes with office, and performs like devices that are sometimes 500+ dollars more. It has a regular usb port when docked, and an HDMI mini output which makes it great for movies and Netflix. It even has a micro sd card slot which I've seen work with up to 128GB micro SD cards. At this time there aren't larger capacity cards available. It doesn't look bad at all, and the touchscreen is accurate and responsive. The screen size is perfect and keyboard feels natural. The pixel density isn't very high, but supposedly that helps with processing and battery life. And it's crazy cheap for what you're getting from ASUS Transformer Book 10.1inch.

ASUS Transformer Book 10.1inch Detachable 2-in-1 Touch Laptop

The specs of ASUS Transformer Book 10.1inch are great and the features are amazing, it's definitely a grande experience. One thing I might also recommend laptop is buying a $4 protective screen cover at to keep the fingerprints and dust under control. Because the screen gets a little smudgy from all the touching.

Pros:
+ It's fast for intel atom core but don't expect to play any heavy video games
+ this is design and ideal for notereading and somewhat for notetaking (will explain in the cons)
+ Some people say the material is cheap but I only agreed to the keyboard which sometimes I feel if you hit it hard enough it will break. But tablet wise feel very solid.
+ Comes with a microsoft windows 365 office (I prefer 2010 windows 7)
+ Touch screen is very fluid and responsive
+ Was at a cheap price so no complaint
+ there is a usb on the keyboard not to be bad
+ battery life is good as long as you don't use any heavy program that will drain it heavily
+ Good for traveling with
+ Has a webcam

Cons:
- A very terrible at stylus note taking (What ever you do, do not buy this for stylus writing!!!!!!!!!!). It's very unresponsible and I feel liike if you buy a stylus buy a one with a sharp tip not the ball pen one (sometimes it write off into a different tangent line). You will have a terrible writing and fustration is there.
- Keyboard is very small and fragile so becareful with it, also have a hard time typing on it so I rather type it on the tablet.
- You will need to buy USB connectors if your gonna use multiple USB devices (this one isn't too terrible since I bought a bundle)
- It's 32 gb as said its for notetaking and not gaming
- It's 10 kindve small
- Windows 8 you have to sign up a new account everytime, prefer the old style where you didn't have to do that.
- The microsoft office did had an install error and took forever and froze. Solution to this was reinstall again.

Overall: It's a ok tablet for notetaking but I wish it had more functions into the stylus like the lenovo x230 tablets where you don't have to constantly manually switching between mouse and stylus. It's good for surfing the internet and READING notes 10/10. Note taking side I give a it a 4/10 since it's small, cheap keyboard thats about to break if your forcefull, not ideal for stylus writing, and sometimes not responsive. Good for traveling, watching movies, and other casual entertainment.
