ASUS Transformer Book T100TA is the latest tablet on our testing table these days. This is a hybrid that also involves a keyboard dock and it actually has a very nice price. This device is priced below $500 and it comes with few accessories in the box: a charger and a USB cable.
We’re dealing with a 2 in 1 laptop with a plasticky case and this product was launched at the end of 2013. Its specs include a quad core Bay Trail CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and Windows 8.1 with MS Office Home and Student 2013. We get 32 or 64 GB of storage, depending on the model bought and the display included on the tablet is a 10.1 inch IPS with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution.
Other specs include Intel HD Graphics, a 1.2 MP camera at the front and a 31 Whr battery that theoretically offers 11 hours of functioning time. There’s also a microSD card slot on the side and on the same side there’s a microHDMI and microUSB, the latter being used for charging. We’ve also got WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 3.0 on the dock and an audio jack.
The product weighs 1.1 kilograms and the slate incorporates stereo speakers on the side. We’ll be back in few days with some impressions on the battery, multimedia and performance. You can find a nice price for the device on Amazon.com.
