Conclusion: Finally we give the ASUS Transformer Book T100TA an 8.3 out of 10 for design, a 9 for hardware and an 8.5 out of 10 for OS and UI.

Review Asus Transformer Book T100TA-C1-GR Convertible
29 November 2013
Summary: 4 x Atom. Bay Trail-T is supposed to eradicate the performance disadvantages of its predecessors. It wants to do this with a CPU Turbo and now four cores, but is that enough for the right balance of battery runtimes and reasonable Windows performance?
Pros: Great keyboard, USB 3.0, Good battery runtimes, Very good display, Low energy consumption, Good performance on the road, Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 (Full), The performance has been improved and the SSD is not low-cost equipment. You can feel that in practice.
Cons: Webcam quality, Not enough storage (32 GB version), Not enough RAM, More storage! 32 GB is not enough. Asus offers a 64 GB or 564 GB version (500 GB + 64 GB flash) respectively for 100 Euros (~$137) more.
Conclusion: For a sub-$400 price, the Asus Transformer Book T100TA is a fully functional Windows 8.1 hybrid tablet, and the natural successor to the netbook ideal from a few years ago. It gives you a bright, usable PC an affordable price. Plus it avoids all of the compatibility issues that plague tablets running mobile operating systems like iOS, Android, or Windows RT.
Pros: Full Windows 8.1 hybrid tablet. Can run all Windows programs. Light. Great price. 11 hours battery life. Micro-USB recharging. 1TB of cloud storage included (for a year). 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi. Comes with full Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013. Keyboard with trackpad and USB port is included .
Cons: Only 2GB of system memory. Touchy trackpad. Only 31GB of free space on SSD. Smaller than standard keyboard. Slow recharge times.
Conclusion: I hated netbooks. That might seem an odd way to launch the conclusion of a review, but I think I need to start there to give my fair opinion on the Transformer Book. From the first Eee PC, through NVIDIA's Ion, and right up through Clover Trail , the very best I felt like Intel's Atom offered was "barely useful.
Pros: Great Price / performance ratio, Snappy performance, Full x86 compatibility, microSD expansion, Keyboard dock part of bundle
Cons: Dock contains no battery, just one USB 3.0 port, Graphics performance middle-of-the-pack, Only 32-64GB storage avail
Asus' Transformer Book T100 convertible notebook reviewed
22 October 2013
Summary: The 64GB Transformer Book T100 we tested is , and the 32GB version will sell for $50 less. Even though a device like this has been such a long time coming, I don't think anyone expected it to be this affordable. Not that I'm complaining.
Except that, well, I am. A little. Like most value-oriented systems, the T100 isn't perfect. The screen is a bit dim, the glossy plastic quickly becomes a smudged mess of fingerprints, and the touchpad has a few annoying quirks.
Summary: Call it a portable laptop or a nice big windows tablet; the Transformer book T100t is capable of being much more with its desktop like Windows 8 functionality and a quick dock detachment. • Custom dock • Expandable storage • Windows 8.1 • Low internal storage • Terrible outdoor visibility The demand of dual-natured products is on the rise. And the reason is simple- it gives you the best of both worlds.
Pros: Custom dock , Expandable storage , Windows 8.1
Summary: A compact Windows laptop and lightweight Windows tablet, the Asus Transformer Book T100T is not the nicest-looking device, but it offers true portability at a great price. Here's our Asus Transformer Book T100T review.
