The Asus MeMO Pad 8 ME181C is an Android tablet with an 8 inch display, an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, and a $199 price tag. It’s also a surprisingly powerful machine for the price.

The Asus C200 Chromebook is a 2.5 pound laptop that offers up to 12 hours of battery life and sells for just $249.

But there’s a lot to like about this little laptop… especially […]
