My recommendation is to try both options (iPad/cheap laptop) out before you decide. Both are likely to work functionally but they will feel very different. Display and keyboard are key factors.
Costwise , there are possible extras (cases for both keyboard for the iPad - though you could also use one with the laptop if you so chose). Presumably you have to buy Scrivener in both cases (iOS/Windows)
If I am just writing I might decide just to dictate into my phone. If I am using all aspects of Scrivener, I prefer a laptop. If I am out and about, I might choose the iPad. I would definitely recommend a high end keyboard if you go the iPad route (Apple & Logitech both good).

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 would be a great and cheap laptop that would be awesome for gaming.

That Dell weighs more than double than Asus, cost more than double and have less the half of battery.

But yes, it more more powerful.

The point: if this will be your only pc, then you have to choose Dell o similar.
But if you want a 2nd pc, very portable then you have to not choose an heavy one.
