Looking for the right computing device can be hard, especially if you have a need for both a tablet and a compact laptop. ASUS aims to blur the line between these devices with their Transformer Book laptop/tablet hybrids, and the latest one is looking like quite a steal.
This is called the ASUS Transformer Book T100HA and boy is it a beauty. Let’s clear things up and let you know this won’t be the most amazingly built tablet. Nor will it be the best-looking, or the most powerful. What makes this device special is that it offers some of the best bang for your buck.
ASUS Transformer Book T100HA specs
- Windows 10 OS
- 10.1-inch 1280x800p IPS LCD display
- Quad-core Intel Atom Cherry Trail X5 processor
- 2-4 GB of RAM
- 32/64/128 GB of internal storage
- 14 hours of battery life
- Tablet is only 8.45 mm thick and weighs 580 grams
- USB-C support
- Available in silk white, tin grey, aqua blue and rouge pink
Of course, what makes this device special is that it has the functionality of both a laptop and a tablet. A casual user could easily replace a full-sized laptop with this bad boy. It’s well built and looks good enough. And to top it off, it expands upon its predecessor by offering more power and more battery life.
We can’t forget the USB-C support, which also makes this a very unique device, and among the very first to support the new standard in data/energy transfer.
Yes, we wish the tablet was better built, as it’s still a bit plasticky. As you can see in the video, the keyboard even bends a bit, but you can’t complain too much with a price point that starts at $279.
Yes, that’s a steal. And this little guy can be yours come Q3 of 2015. Are you getting one?
