Excellence & Entertainment

I was travelling from my college back to my home for my summer vacation. I travelled in a bus- a rickety old bus that was so slow that I could literally watch cycles whiz past us. Bored as I was I looked around to see my neighbor take out his Asus T100.


It was so sleek and wonderful in design that it caught my eye. At first I thought it was a tab but then noticed the guy take out a keyboard from his backpack and attach it in. Pretty cool, huh? A 10 inch tab or a frikking laptop.


He did some official work – or so I thought, because I saw him working on Microsoft Office 2013 on Windows 8.1. On asking him, he replied that the software was in-built and that he got them when he bought the tab-cum-laptop.

He then proceeded to gaming. Amazed at his audacity, I asked him about the battery backup and the processor speed. “11 hours and Intel quad core” he replied with a smug smile.



Intrigued, I proceeded to ask him about the device. After learning that it supported USB 3.0 and had IPS screen with 1366 x 768 resolution, and also supported reading mode which helps in creating lesser stress for the eyes, I decided what I want for my birthday… the Asus Transformer Book T100.

This is fiction written for the Indiblogger contest - Time to Transform.
