Personally, I'd be wary of anything made by ASUS. Known some people who work there and let's just say they like to focus more on flashy new features rather than getting the fundamentals correct. They also have one of the most mismanaged and dysfunctional RMA systems I've ever heard of relating to the political divisions between ASUSTek, ASUS, and Pegatron. Something having to do with a big falling out among top execs once upon a time that still impacts things today.

I've also heard stories from people who did mock calls into the support centers asking questions about products and let's just say that they couldn't even answer some of the basics of the basics, like things that are on the spec sheet for a product they were supposed to have been given specialized training for.

If it were me, I'd take Bob's basic suggestion but apply it to some other manufacturer. But at <$450 for a full blown PC in tablet form, you're not going to find much that would likely qualify as usable, even for limited tasks like you're talking about.

Acer Iconia W3 at 429?

I haven't had any issue with Asus so far and that's after nearly or over 2 decades of using their products personally and way back when I owned a PC repair chain.

As to folks that know anything on support lines, those are rare as honest people today.

as a desktop app in Windows and Android (Play Store) and the Ipad (App store). I would go with windows since you have it already. So the Asus is a good one and Dell released some new tablets a bit ago.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
