iPad vs. Windows

Get the best of work and play with a Windows tablet. Play games, watch your favorite movies, read, and catch up with family and friends. Plus you can get stuff done with desktop programs, do two things at once side-by-side, and access your files anywhere. An iPad just can’t do all of that.

Time to transform

You don't need a separate tablet and a laptop when you can have both in one sleek device: the ASUS Transformer Book T100. With the keyboard attached you can write papers and documents like you would on a laptop. But detach the 10.1-inch HD display and you've got a Windows 8.1 tablet with a multipoint touchscreen.
