Some people complaining that it stops working after a few months. Put me off buying.
Certainly a good price but it would be best to read Amazon reviews. Multiple quality control issues reported. Caveat emptor!
I've got one and you just need to disconnect battery inside tablet and re connect. works fine after that.
after my a_us transformer TF201 which cost me £500 and was the biggest pile of "a_us" ever, I would probably not buy another a_us transformer anything in the future!!

I see what you did there. Clever.
I'm desperately trying to avoid buying an iPad 3 but I need something reliable for work. I need to type documents and sync calendars and a few other things. It also needs to be ultra portable with a keyboard. Any suggestions?
I had 2 and both went wrong, very short battery and very slow with Windows 10

It had good potential but it was just too ming-bogglingly slow and unresponsive to be of any real use.
If reliability is a concern. This is practically the same spec and we have one and its great.

Luvvvvvvvvv these 10" Linx Tablets, have a few of them from around the time they were being pushed out at £50 each at Sainsburys over the last 2 months (those were the 2GB RAM & 16GB Internal Memory mind, as opposed to 2GB RAM & 32GB Internal Memory, etc).

The build-quality of the Linx Tablets are very good, & runs quick on either Windows 8.1, or Windows 10 regardless!, on account of its 2GB RAM (as opposed to 1GB RAM which is common within their 7" & 8" Tablets, etc).

I've never had an Asus Transformer before (even though I always wanted it from wayyyyyy back in their 500GB Hard Drive Docking Bay days, but ... ) so I can't comment on any of them.

But from what I've heard of the Asus Transformers (from last year at least), more tended to like them than not?, so not too sure what to make of that now?.

But so far so good with the Linx 10" Tablets anyway ..... :-)
i would suggest getting the version with the 500gb hd dock, you take a small hit on battery life but it's so much more versatile. i bought one recently, swapped the 500hd with an ssd, and put the original 500gb hd in a usb3 caddy. fantastic little machine.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lenovo-Miix-10-Inch-Tablet-Black/dp/B016BB8V84/There is also this one for £118.




After their recent acts of nonsense, I wouldn't trust a Lenovo as far as I could throw it.
Anybody know of an outlet for similar but with much improved Z8300 processor without a serious price hike? Thanks.
I bought this 8 months ago refurbished from John Lewis. £150.
I installed Windows 10 and Office professional, and it's fairy quick and responsive. No problems to date although it does take longer than expected to fully charge. For this price, brand new, it's a good deal.
I've been using the Asus for over a year now, I bought it off Argos/eBay, and reasonably happy with it, I only use it for work. I don't know whether being a refurb has any bearing on the couple of issues I've had with it.

The mouse buttons are fine but the mouse pad isn't brilliant. The other issue I had was that having worked on a document, when I went to save it I got an error message and had to close it, losing the document. Not knowing whether it was a hard- or software issue, I upgraded to Win 10 and I've had no further issue with that problem.

I'm very tempted to buy a new one, or a Linx.
I bought this last week from very for £139 (including Anti-virus). Quite impressed so far, fairly heavy with the keyboard dock attached, but responds well and streams Xbone without difficulty. Severe lack of apps, but knew this before buying as I bought it to compliment my Lumia 930. Watched BT Sports for a couple of football matches and coped well.

As a caveat I'm using it to replace a IPAD1 so to be honest I've not much to compare it against.
Can anyone do a comparison between this the miix 300 and 1010b? I've been considering all 3 for some time, and can't decide

I personally ended up going for a Dell Venue Pro 11 (7140 version) from the Outlet and keyboard unit with battery from Ebay, for the extra cash (mine came to around £450 in total, core M CPU + 8GB RAM + 256GB SSD) over these cheap tablets you get a faster processor, more RAM, more storage and a better screen. It also comes with a full size USB port. Be warned a full HD screen is a bit more difficult to use on an 11" tablet, but it does mean serious software, like Visual Studio, Photoshop etc. work better and you get more on your screen.

Oh yea voting cold because it does not have a feature tailored to your needs, rather on how good the price is. My comment was justified.

You need to look at what programs or apps you need to use for work, Me i like windows system and use lumia phone windows laptop and tablet but also have ipad for 3 work apps that are not supported by windows and it can be a pain lugging round a iPad when i could use a iPhone but i really don't like android or iPhone systems so put up with the iPad.

What 'Migration Software' did you use to transfer the Windows OS from the original 500GB Hard Drive to your then newer SSD Drive please?. :-)

​The OS isn't on the hard disk. It's just a data partion like a removable storage The OS is on the 32Gb flash in the tablet part. Take the keyboard off and you take the hard disk off with it!

Mine hasnt stopped working but it gets a lot slower when it gets below 40% battery and charging seems to take a long time which is probably due to it using micro usb to charge.

Where from please? The new Pro 3s seem more expensive than a Pro 4.
We ordered one of these for someone at work. First one wouldn't power on so we sent it back, second one powered on but then failed after it had been set-up, third replacement failed to power on. We sent it back and ordered a Dell Venue Pro instead.
