All of this is complemented by Windows 8.1 itself, which may not have the greatest selection of touch-enabled apps, but does have a fantastic range of built-in features for power users.

The Asus Transformer Book T100 is a full Windows 8.1 entry-level 10-inch tablet, sporting Intel ‘Bay Trail’ internals, and a keyboard dock all for under $500. The Transformer line of products has typically been quite solid, so it’ll be interesting to see how this Windows convertible hybrid fares and if the T100 manages to stand out from the crowd.
