Asus Transformer Pro T304UA

$1,199.99 at Amazon

The Asus Transformer Pro T304UA offers more storage and more power at a more reasonable price. 

Asus gives you more performance for your money. Amazon sells the Transformer Pro T304UA with an Intel Core i7 processor, 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM for $1,199.99. A Surface Pro with matching specs costs $2,199. What's more, you get the stylus and the keyboard with Asus' device.

You also get more ports with the Transformer Pro than the Surface Pro 6. This Windows 10 2-in-1 has an HDMI port, a USB 3.0 port, MicroSD card slot, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, a power jack and a headset jack. The Transformer Pro T304UA has a fingerprint reader instead of a security camera.

All that being said, the Transformer Pro T304UA looks a lot like a Surface Pro. It has an aluminum body and a 155-degree kickstand for Laptop Mode. The included backlit keyboard locks to the bottom of the display for stability as the Surface Pro's Type Cover does. Its 12.5-inch 2,160 x 1,440 resolution display is slightly bigger than the Surface Pro 6's display, but isn't so big that the Windows 2-in-1 can't replace your media tablet. This display detects 1,024 levels of pressure from the Transformer Pro T304UA's digital pen in OneNote and other apps.

An 8-megapixel rear-facing camera captures photos of the world around you. 

The only thing you sacrifice with this Surface Pro alternative is battery life. The Transformer Pro T304UA lasts 8 hours. That's less than Surface Pro 6's claimed 13.5 hours.

    No mention of the Cube i7 Stylus? Should definitely be on the list as a budget pick….

      Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll look into this one for sure. Adding a few budget picks here wouldn’t hurt.

    I was also going to add acer switch alpha…in my opinion i think its the most affordable and has greater value compared to the rest.

    Hi there. I was wondering which of the mentioned models have at least 2 outputs that can be used as audio out simultaneously. I’m considering buying one of these devices, for basic mixing. One for cue and at least one for out.

    Microsoft Surface 2 is already dead. The company does not make it.
