Today, Asus is a smart combination of good features and a price tag. Those who want to buy obviously high-quality equipment and do not overpay for this huge money should look at the company's products. The tablet market is slowly fading due to the lack of interest from users. Like many manufacturers, the brand has reduced the number of manufactured devices, but among the relatively old models there are some interesting devices even in 2019. The best Asus tablets are listed below.

The problem with the tablet market is that it is not advisable to make them on Android due to the growing diagonals of smartphones. At the same time, Windows is more suitable for work and has multimedia capabilities. For this reason, many manufacturers are increasingly offering tablets with a keyboard or transformers. This is logical, because the user receives a functional laptop if necessary, and if it is not needed, he simply removes the keyboard and uses the device as a regular tablet.
Transformer Mini is great for fun and work. First of all, we are pleasantly pleased with the performance - an excellent chipset for a mobile platform, a decent set of high-speed memory. There are all the necessary outputs - USB 3.0, 3.5, microUSB, MicroSD, microHDMI. However, not only the filling model boasts. The device is made in a very stylish, thin metal case. Its weight is 620 grams. A removable keyboard of 250 grams does not make the model heavier, but at the same time expands the functionality. In addition, you can work with the stylus, which comes in the kit.
The tablet has a built-in stand on the hinge mechanism, which will provide an inclination of up to 170 degrees, that is, in any place - whether it is an office, a car or a house, it will be convenient to use.

For high-quality sound, two new powerful speakers and proprietary technology Sonic Master are used. Another nice bonus - the device is able to work up to 12 hours, even with the included wireless interfaces.

The choice of Asus tablets in numerous offline and online stores is higher than the number of models represented in the rating. Only actual devices got into it. It is not hard to see what the main focus of the brand is on transformers and tablets with removable keyboards. This is easily explained by the fact that they often become the best alternative for those who are looking for something functional and compact with a long working time for everyday tasks. I want to believe that in the future, Asus will not abandon the production of tablets at all and the choice of devices with modern parameters will become much wider.
