Thanks. I think he wants to be able to have a tablet but doesn't want a Surface as his main device, and he can't afford both a tablet and a laptop. If he was going into a creative field or something I'd probably try to sway him from a 2 in 1.
Yeah, if he wants a 2 in 1, I definitely agree the Asus Transformer is going to be his best bet. Really cool how the keyboard detaches, too. Honestly though, you can find a bluetooth keyboard to pair with just about any tablet on Amazon for like $10, so I wouldn't necessarily let that be the only deciding factor; i pair a cheap, shitty keyboard to my Galaxy Note for school (the stylus support is sweet for notes), and it gets the job done perfectly fine
