A Nexus 7 doesn't have a keyboard, or run Windows 8 - which some people might actually need in their device.

Nexus 7 runs Android, why are you comparing Android to Windows 8.1? Android is a buggy nasty laggy mess compared to Windows 8.1 and is only suited for the purpose it was designed for as a mobile OS. I have Android phones my next phone is a Galaxy S6 (currently waiting for stock) in case you think I'm biased.

t200 is worth the extra imo, keyboard on this is bad, and trackpad truely awful - worse than the original asus 4gb netbook thing even

If that's true then windows these days is suitable for nothing. And that's from a developer in case you think I'm biased

Poor screen

Besides the handbag fights is this any good.
I'm sold with the detachable keyboard and I just want it for that lol

It's rubbish mate. Poor res screen, peddle slow processor. It's gonna be a horrible experience.

Shame UK never got the much more interesting 32GB SSD + 500GB HDD model. 32GB SSD is really not enough in this machine.

Had one from the start, use it every day, it's superb...and browsing and using Office doesn't tax it at all, so I don't get the peddle slow processor comment.
Battery life is great - always get 6 hours plus...if you don't over-work it it'll last a full working day.
The keyboard is a little crammed, but as a touch typer I get used to it pretty quickly (it spends most of it's days with an external monitor/keyboard/mouse on it).

Downsides: the speakers aren't great, so it's not the first thing I reach for if I want to watch a film in bed.

For this price it's a great deal...and it's mad to say otherwise, so stop being mad.
I paid £280 for it and haven't regretted it at all.

I have one of these, great little machine at the time of release but I have had issues with random reboots and software update failures. A great device when it works, a frustrating experience the rest of the time.
It runs Fallout 3, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Portal and Football Manager with no issues and the screen brightness is adequate.

There is one thing that frustrates me more than any reboot issues though and that is that fact this thing draws in your fingerprints. It's a magnet for them, the glossy screen and outer case are a nightmare!

The tablet mode is fantastic for when you don't want to lug around the keyboard and go mobile. I would say this is perfect for a student/teen and will do a good job for those looking for a machine that converts into a tablet.

Good price.

I wish it had Full HD - but the price is really good.

I agree with ourdave and mine was great but I upgraded to the Dell Venue Pro 11

If what's true? That Android is only a mobile OS? It certainly is only a mobile OS, hardly a full OS is it. Windows is the only system trying to be a mobile OS and desktop OS. Software is what makes a platform. Windows tablets have access to the largest amount of software on any system. The Windows store lags behind the others but you have a massive range of software to choose from on this plarform currently. It depends how you wish to use the device. Personally I think Android is the worst mobile OS on tablets and IOS by Apple is the best as it supports a minor amount of hardware variance, apps just work as they're supposed to.

Good specification lloking for buy new one this could be the my new gadget ... Still in serach and looking for options

Windows on a Laptop is truly the OS from hell ......................... at any cost!

I have an Office package on my Android Tablet which works extremely well .......... so, what are you actually saying?

Paid around £250 for this 7 months ago, so this is a steal!

He's saying "The tumbleweed sure is noisy this time of year"

Great product - had one since they came out. Has a full copy of MS Office installed and not an online Office 365 license that needs to be renewed. Works well as a tablet, very portable and perfectly good keyboard. Battery life is excellent too.

That Microsoft Office Mobile is not the same as MS Office 20xx/365?

With Windows 8 you can install actual software that once upon a time were only limited to computers and laptops.It's effectively a proper computer rather than a large phone with no calling functionality (depends on the device of course, but generally speaking).

Windows 10 also looks quite promising, which I'm sure the T100 will have no issues running.

32GB is probably a bit short on space,
but £159 for a convertible laptop / tablet has to be hot !

The T200 is £249 for arefurb, so is the T200 really worth £105 more than this? I got an order in on these when they were £145, just waiting for delivery now. Its going to hopefully replace a linx 10 which can go on ebay. I think windows 8.1is very good on a tablet, although I do also carry my nexus 9 as well, I could probably manage with 1 but I like to have both.

I own both win8, android and ios devices (multuple)
note3: good everyday phone, expendable battery and microsd support
iphone 4s: tiny screen, rubbish battery life (company phone)
nexus7: good quality screen, good bedtime meda consuming device, or playing some basic games but not for real work. lack of space and sd card
dell venue 8 pro: good win8 tablet, with decent battery for some lightweight work with micro sd support and decent screen res/quality. charging is a nightmare, also lack of full usb support ( usb underpowered )
t100: cheap and supports all ports you'll need. for what it does I feel is a bit heavy ( still didnt get the iron in the keyboard ) my biggest problem is the screen and touchpad quality, otherwise its not bad for this price ( will sell it )
lenovo yoga 3 11: high price ( £500ish ) but premium quality comes with it; my no1 portable device now

The one you point to is a tablet whereas the deal is for a hybrid. You cannot unfortunately compare the two.

I have had one of these for 18 months and it is a great piece of kit.

As usual you will find people on here that have comments like poor performing processor etc when they will have never even used one. Take the advice from actual owners of the device and go for it as that is a great price (as long as the one you receive is in good condition)

Just received mine. Very happy with purchase. No manuals or paperwork (as described). Not worried about the lack of so-called manual as the condition of the tablet/keyboard is like new.

Initial impressions are very positive. Performance is totally adequate for my needs.

Thanks for posting OP

Yes you get the bare laptop and psu in shrinkwrap - absolutely nothing else.

Condition was as new though.

When I got mine new there was only a quick start guide leaflet in the box and the MS office key

Just picked one up from Amazon warehouse used/very good for £119.99. Got 30 days to send it back too.

Me too, I hope the description of the scratches is pessimistic... it mentioned about 6!
