ASUS Transformer Book

As we covered yesterday, Microsoft is today listing the Asus Transformer Book T100TA at its retailer and online stores for just $249, as part of the company's 12 Days of Deals sales event. Should you happen to be one of the first customers who show up at participating physical stores, Microsoft will sell you the Windows 8.1 tablet for $199..

The T100TA sports a 1366x768 display and can be a stand alone tablet or laptop, thanks to the detachable keyboard. There's also the Intel Bay Trail-T quad-core Z3735F processor running at 1.33 GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, a 1.2MP web camera and a battery that can last up to 11 hours.

Microsoft is throwing in a free year of Office 365 Personal with every purchase of the notebook.
