With Windows 10 looming, is there any value to be had in a Windows 8.1 OS sporting tablet? If Mecer's A105 is anything to go by, then it's a definitive yes.
Solid build quality; Very well priced; Performs ably as mid-range business tablet
A little heavy to hold one-handed; Slightly dull screen
If there is one mark against the A105, it's that Mecer have not included a keyboard, a glaring omission for those who enjoy the tactile feel of keys under their fingers while working. Should you be willing to shell out the extra R500 (average retail price) that a detachable keyboard cost you, the A105 has a bottom located clip in order to keep the touch-typers happy. Apart from this, there is very little that the A105 is lacking from a mid-range tablet perspective.
