Its day 4 of Microsoft’s 12 Days of Deals, drum roll please! Today, Microsoft is offering an ASUS Transformer Book. Microsoft normally sells the Asus Transformer Book for $329, but you can get it today for $249.
The ASUS Transform Book is a 2 in 1 PC meaning, you can use it as a tablet or PC. Although, I would suggest using this more as a tablet than a PC. Check out the specs below and you will understand why.
|Display||10.1 LED (1366 x 768)|
|Processor||Intel Atom 1.33 GHz|
|Operating System||Windows 8.1 32-bit|
|Ports||Micro USB 2.0, Micro HDMI Headphone/ Microphone input combo|
|Battery||Up to 11 hours|
Do you understand why I would suggest using this as a tablet rather than a PC? Although this is not a high performing piece of equipment, Microsoft is giving you a decent deal, and to try and sweeten the pot you also get one year of Microsoft Office Personal 365 (although you get this regardless).
If you are looking for a windows tablet, this is a good start. It’s no Toshiba%20Encore 2 WT10-A32 10.0-Inch 32 GB TabletToshiba Encore or Microsoft%20Surface Pro 3 (64 GB, Intel Core i3)Microsoft Surface Pro, but it will get the job done for most users.
Up to this point I have been somewhat disappointed with Microsoft’s 12 Days of Deals. Maybe, I am a little bias since I stay away from most lower end tech. Only because I feel I must have speed, and desire top of the line products. With the holiday seasons quickly coming up I am sure that most of us are trying to save a dollar where we can, which makes this deal a little more appealing.
With that said, what do you think? Has Microsoft let us down with their 12 Days of Deals so far this year? Let us know in the comment section below.
