Asus Transformer Book T100 Review
29 January 2014
Excerpt: Windows is still relatively new to the tablet market, with the launch of Windows 8 occurring just a little over a year ago. But that doesn’t mean the market isn’t filled with options for consumers, ranging from ARM-based Windows RT options such as the Microsoft Surface 2 and Nokia Lumia 2520, to...
Excerpt: Microsoft may only offer two official Windows tablets but there’s actually a third way you can go – with the low-cost T100 typifying what you can expect. Microsoft is seemingly not interested in pursuing this line itself and that’s frankly a little perplexing to us because in many ways the 10.1-inch...
Summary: The Asus Transformer Book T100 revives the Netbook value proposition (and Netbook usability issues) in a budget-price 10-inch laptop that doubles as a tablet. You won’t love it, but for sheer bang for the buck, it’s hard to beat.
Pros: The Asus Transformer Book T100 runs full Windows 8.1, comes with a keyboard, has great battery life, and is a steal if you can find it for $350.
Cons: The cramped keyboard feels like an old Netbook's used to; not as fast as zippier, larger, more expensive Windows products; display not that vibrant.
Summary: If you want a more premium design and screen on a Windows slate today, you'll need to go for a much more expensive Intel Core-powered tablet, such as the $899 Surface Pro 2. You can also wait for the Dell Venue 11 Pro, which starts at $499, but has a full HD screen.
Conclusion: Yes, you can get Microsoft's Surface 2 for a tenner more, but that model only runs the limited RT version of Windows 8.1 and you'll still need to shell out another £100 for the accompanying keyboard.

Excerpt: The Asus Transformer Book T100 is only one of several tablets announced and released with the all-new Microsoft Windows 8.1 tablet OS. It doesn’t outshine many others in its category but it does have a number of interesting features that make it at least worth a look, if not an outright purchase.
Pros: Uses full version of Windows 8 operating system, Comes with Microsoft Office Home & Student pre-installed, Lightweight, Inexpensive
Cons: Keyboard dock lacks extra battery, Screen resolution is quite limited, Lacks a rear camera
Summary: The T100 is beyond reasonably priced, but can it get the job done?
Pros: Full Windows 8.1, Affordable, MicroSD support, 10.5 hour battery life, As a tablet, the T100 is light, plenty responsive and feels great to hold. It's only let down in this area by a lack of apps in MIcrosoft's Windows Store, which is growing all the time. It offers excellent battery life, meanin...
Cons: Cramped keyboard, No LTE option, Mediocre performance, Lengthy charging time, It's a shame, but the T100 has to be ruled out for anyone who considers a below-par typing experience a deal breaker. The keys are cramped and leave you hunched over the device - you will have to adjust your typing styl...
