Transformer T100 or Acer C720 Chromebook

I'm in need of a dependable mobile device for school that has long battery life and is easy to carry. I have come down to the T100 for $349 and the C720 for $249.

I'm very invested in Google apps but have never owned a chromebook, causing me to have some second thoughts about leaving windows. I hear chrome remote desktop could fill the gap?

The T100 2-1 hybrid intrigues me, but I may be using it more as a netbook than a tablet (productivity).

I have a 17in windows laptop that I use at home, it's becoming a nuisance to carry.

I'm so split, do any of you have thoughts or suggestions? I want to make up my mind already. I should also try seeing if my local Best Buy has these devices to have some hands on...
