Price: $300 

Asus hybrid tablet supersedes all the expectations one might have for a convertible slate in its price class. Functioning with a full version of Windows 8.1, the subnotebook carries a full suite of programs like the Home and Student version of Office, Skype, Amazon’s Kindle app, and much more. Battery life serves as its biggest selling point with the 31Whr cell pushing over 10+ hours of power even in tablet mode. In addition, Asus bundles some sweet extras including 1TB of cloud storage, micro-USB charging, and keyboard with multi-touch trackpad.
