I recently joined Joeyboy and company as contributor on Pinoytechblog. It had been a while since I last had a similar gig, so reviewing a gadget felt like having to discover my footing in the tech review space once again. I am looking forward to more assignments, as it is indeed quite fun working with new tech toys and writing about them from typical consumer’s (read: your grandparents) perspective. There are technical benchmarks to mention (e.g., battery life, processing power, etc.), but at the end of the day, what’s most important is how a gadget will benefit the end-user (or not).
To road warriors who are keen to find a good balance between a truly useful laptop and a tablet, the hybrid ASUS Transformer Book T100 should be an option. With its lightweight build and detachable screen that doubles as a tablet, it gives end-users easy choices for switching between a laptop and a mobile device in one little package.
This entry level machine comes in compact 10.1-inch unit that can be easily carried in a purse or a satchel. The 2-in-1 laptop/tablet device runs on Windows 8.1 and is installed with Windows Office 2013. Note, however, that users must activate the Office package with the serial provided.
