which tablet do I buy? - New Topic!

by sillybilly01 - April 26, 2015 5:13 AM PDT - Tablets

I am considering getting either Acer Switch SW5-012-16K7 Black 2in1 (a mobile phone Nokia 530 SZA goes together with this package) OR an Asus T100TA-DK003H 2in1 W8.1 (a mobile phone Lumia 435 goes in this package). The retailer tells me both come with a free Microsoft Office for a year, after which I will have to upgrade it paying about $70 annually. I definitely need the Mic.Office for I am getting either of these tablets so as to be able to work and not to drag my big, heavy laptop when travelling; and I am on the road frequently. When I asked which one would the person helping me at the store personally get, he answered that he'd get the Acer as it tends to be faster and (honestly, does look) more solid. But friends in tech advise me to get the Asus as it is (apparently) a more distinguished brand.
This is the offer in Laptop stores in Budapest, Hungary - and both packages cost the same for a 64GB device; around $460. Advice/ recommendation on which one to get & share experiences with these please?
Thanks, (read more)

Are bootable anti-virus/malware scans as good as the normal
