Asus transformer book T100 vs Surface Pro from Microsoft

As many gurus have already said, T100 has made Microsoft Surface Pro obsolete for now. The Surface Pro has more than a few limitations when you compare it to Asus T100. As said earlier, T100 allows the use of full version software, Surface Pro on the other hand has a different set of software for tablet use only.

It seems Microsoft is more interested to sell the software for tablets as main product, instead of the tablet itself. The browser experience as well is limiting factor. Asus T100 allows the use of full blown PC browsing experience with all the plugins and add-on, whereas the Surface Pro just permits the use of restricted browser, with much less functionality than that in a real PC.
File system is also restricted in Surface Pro, while in T100, you can virtual do anything you can in your PC.
