Who doesn’t love tablets? They are the perfect balance from a smartphone’s portability and a computer’s features all in one. If you’re looking to buy a new tablet with nice specs, we have here a comparison of three different companies’ 10-inches tablets: Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), Apple’s iPad Air and Asus’ Transformer Book T100.
Asus Transformer Book T100
Asus equipped its tablet with a 10.1 inches display that can render a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. This device is powered by a quad core processor (Atom) working at 1.3 GHz. It supports 2GB of RAM and it can be purchased with two options of internal storage space: 32GB and 64GB (if you choose to use a microSD card, you can expand the internal memory). As for battery, the Transformer Book T100 houses a battery that can last up to 11 hours. Beside a microSD card slot, the tablet also has an USB port and a micro HDMI out.
You can find this tablet at the price of $300.00 (with an attachable keyboard).
In the end, while not a fancy tablet, it does its job with a very approachable interface as well as price.
Regarding outlook, the Apple Company has always been known to get a high end, smooth finish, and out of the three, the iPad Air is the best looking. Next in line would be Samsung’s tablet which is not ugly either, but it shows off a plastic build, rather the aluminum finish we see on the iPad.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 has a 10.1 inches long display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and a pixel ratio of 299 pixels-per-inch. The iPad Air, on the other hand, comes with a slightly smaller display of 9.7 inches with a lower resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels and a pixel density of 264 pixels-per-inch.
Regarding size and weight, the Note tablet is also bigger and heavier than the iPad Air. Samsung’s dimensions are 9.57 x 6.75 x 0.31 in, and it weighs 547 grams. The iPad Air rocks the following dimensions: 9.45 x 6.67 x 0.30 in, while it weighs 478 grams.
What we have to mention is that Apple’s interface is way easier to access, while the TouchWiz may take some time to get acquainted with.
As for operating system, we can see that the iPad Air tablet runs on iOS 7.0.3, while the Galaxy Note 10.1 runs on Android 4.3.
The iPad Air (16 GB variant) costs $439.00, while the Note 10.1 (16 GB variant) is priced at $350.00.
The cheaper of them all is obviously the Asus Transformer Book T100, so if you’re looking for a budget-friendly tablet, this should be your choice.
Both the Samsung and the Apple product have great specs, and if you are an Apple product owner already, the iPad Air may be more up your alley. But considering that the Samsung tops the other two in the display department, the Galaxy Note 10.1 would be a great choice too.
