Visit manufacturer site for details, While having a big 10-inch tablet to swipe your finger around is great fun for games and apps, when it comes to getting proper work done, it's much more comfortable typing on a proper keyboard, With this in mind, Archos has brought to life the 101 XS, a 10.1-inch tablet that has a keyboard dock that handily doubles as a protective cover -- similar to Asus' Transformer line of tablets, With a price tag exhale: a pretty, minimal, acrylic piece in pinks, blues, and gold iphone case of £300, it undercuts the cheaper of the Transformers -- the Pad TF300 -- by a healthy £100, But does that make it the bargain it first appears to be?..

The Archos 101 XS will be available to buy from mid-September. The Archos 101 XS is a 10.1-inch device, which should immediately tell you it's less hand- and pocket-friendly than smaller 7-inch tablets such as the Google Nexus 7. On the other hand, the larger screen real estate makes full-sized slates much better suited to watching video, browsing the web or using any apps that require more space. I won't try to argue which size is better, as it's totally down to what you need a tablet for. If you're looking for a device you can slip into a jacket pocket and pull out easily on a train or a short-haul flight, a smaller tablet will be more suited to you. If most of your tablet time is likely to be spent browsing the web and watching YouTube clips from your sofa, or working at your desk, a bigger screen will come in handy.

The 101 XS measures 273mm wide and 170mm tall, which is pretty standard for 10-inch slates, More impressive is the atom-splitting 8mm thickness, which makes it one of the slimmest tablets on the market, By comparison, the iPad measures 9.4mm thick and the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 -- arguably the 101 XS's closest rival -- is a chubbier 10mm, Whether you really need a tablet that slim is debatable, but it does make it feel pretty good in your hand, Looks-wise, exhale: a pretty, minimal, acrylic piece in pinks, blues, and gold iphone case the 101 XS has a silver metal back, surrounded by white plastic with a silver bezel around the screen, It's far from the most beautiful design I've seen, but I'm sure it will appeal to at least a few of you, The use of metal panels and solid-feeling plastic makes the 101 XS seem pretty durable and capable of taking a few knocks..

Annoyingly though, both the white edging and the aluminium panel like nothing more than to pick up every piece of dirt they come into contact with. It shows off the tiniest of scuffs. If you're planning on taking this tablet anywhere fancy, I highly recommend you keep a pack of wet wipes handy to give it a quick polish. Around the edges you'll find a micro-USB port that handles both data transfer and charging (which is nice of it), mini-HDMI for hooking up a big tellybox, a microSD card slot for increasing the 16GB internal capacity and a 3.5mm headphone jack for, well, headphones.
