80% Asus Transformer Book Trio: The most versatile hybrid yet
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Transformer Book Trio is a very compelling proposition if you’re hunting for a workhorse hybrid PC. With ability to use the notebook as a Windows 8 PC and the screen as an Android tablet – at the same time; is something that hasn’t been done before. This alone makes the Trio one of the best hybrids in the market right now. If we have to nit-pick then the battery life of the base station could have been better, the trackpad buttons are unusable and a backlit keyboard would have been a neat addition at this price. If you don’t fancy the detachable design then the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 is another well spec’ed hybrid at this price.

ASUS has an interesting product in the Transformer Book Trio, but it's hard to recommend something 'interesting' over something that's useful. Don't get us wrong, you can do a lot of stuff with the the Trio, but it's a product that feels messy in the way it works. For the most part, the only reason we used the Android tablet was because the PC Station ran out of battery power.

80% A Hybrid That's More Than Just Hype
Source: Digital Versus English
The Asus Transformer Book TX300 is a great example of a hybrid laptop/tablet. Once the screen is attached, it turns into a true laptop with a high-performance processor and an excellent display. And as a tablet it's perfectly honourable. The biggest downsides: it's heavier and has less battery life than most ultrabooks.

Intel Haswell platform for ultra mobile devices is very good and offers a good combination of performance and autonomy that exceeds 8hrs. It has a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-4200U dual-core processor with hyper-threading (up to 2.6GHz in Turbo mode), with 4GB of DDR3 memory, integrated Intel HD 4400 graphics and a 128GB capacity SSD. Although LAN is lacking, there is a built-in WiFi (it is supporting 802.11 a/b/g/n dual band at 2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0, and Intel WiDi technology that sends pictures from the computer to compatible devices (newer projectors, for example). The chiclet keyboard is comfortable to use, offering a spacious touchpad that can be used even when the display is not connected. This is an interesting concept that will suit those who are looking for an ultra compact laptop with 13.3" screen, along with the autonomy better than average, and a possibility to detach the screen of the keyboard and use the device as a tablet. Price is slightly higher, which is not surprising since it is a Premium model. This interesting device will certainly be popular.
Positive: Full HD screen; great performance. Negative: High price.

80% Asus Transformer Book T100T (Windows 8) Tablet Review
Source: Kitguru English
Asus have been pushing the hybrid tablet form factor for a while now and the shift from Android to Windows 8.1 on the Transformer Book T100T is positive. This operating system makes the T100T ideal for those users who are looking for a standalone device. In terms of its physical design, the T100T doesn’t exactly push the boundaries. The product would feel much more exclusive if it featured a metal chassis – the gloss plastic looks nice when you get it out of the box but it soon picks up marks and scratches. That said, considering the price of the T100T we cannot expect the highest levels of quality, especially with the inclusion of a keyboard dock.

Overall, this reviewer finds she reaches for the Asus T100 over alternatives like a 15-inch notebook or an Apple iPad which are also within arm’s reach. The keyboard and track pad give the T100 the versatility of a notebook with all the portability and features of a tablet. It may just be that it is easier to overlook any cons when the price is right, but with the Asus there really aren’t many concessions. Compared to a Chromebook, the Transformer Book offers even greater portability with far more functionality. Hopefully its popularity will motivate other manufacturers to follow suit with affordable hybrid options. With the Asus Transformer Book T100 it’s easy to get the best of both worlds, switching back and forth from notebook to tablet with ease.

There may be a large number of convertible devices, instigated by Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, but The Transformer Book T100 sets itself apart with solid design, reasonable performance, and a low price. Furthermore, it is almost certain we will be seeing more of these 2-in-1 notebooks with detachable keyboards and touchscreens for the foreseeable future. Asus has a slight upper hand because it was among the first companies to have offered such devices with above average performance at a reasonable price. The Transformer Book T100 is also a device which has more pros than cons. This tablet’s main advantages are its alluring price, great battery life, USB 3.0, a solid display with an impressively sustainable contrast, brightness and color vivacity despite its low resolution, as well as its smart software package which makes the device ready to perform all the tasks (more or less) which made one want to buy it in the first place.

While Microsoft is still trying to convince everyone that Windows RT devices are the spiritual successors to the netbook, Intel has made its feelings clear – ARM isn’t welcome to a piece of the Windows action. The new Atom platform delivers a dramatic performance increase – enough power for casual gaming – and the same great battery life, all at a price that has allowed Asus to sell the Transformer Book T100 for only $600. In our opinion, this represents the death knell for Windows RT. As for the T100 itself, it delivers everything you could ask for, and it’s ludicrously affordable. Snap one up while you can – we predict these will sell out fast.

This can be lighter than an Android Tablet, however it runs Windows 8.1.

For a second PC it is ideal and remember most Windows programs should run without problem.

Gadgets like the Asus Transformer Book T100 mean you no longer have to choose between a tablet and a laptop - it's a fully functioning computer so your only choice is keyboard-on or keyboard-off. It's pretty lightweight, comparing well to a laptop with both parts assembled. And it performs well, and at length. On the flip side, the display really doesn't match others out there, so you may tire of its low resolution and average colour palette. And the keyboard is a disappointment in terms of build quality and usability, especially the creaky touchpad. The T100 is also available in wi-fi only configuration, there's no 3G model.

The Asus Transformer Book is almost a bargain considering how much less it will cost compared with Windows 8.1 convertibles such as Microsoft's Surface Pro 2 - but you have to make the purchase with realistic expectations to avoid disappointment. The device is certainly waving the flat for Windows 8.1 and opens up the OS to a wider audience by appealing to anyone looking for a laptop, tablet or combination of the two. It works well as both and succeeds in aiming for versatility.

Netbooks fad went away, then came Chromebooks, which are a whole different deal and now netbooks are back for the Windows 8.1 era and ASUS Transformer Book T100 is the way to go! It’s got great performance for its class, is full blown Windows 8.1, a good screen and behaves well as a tablet too.

We wouldn't necessarily like the T100 if it weren't for its extraordinarily low price: It looks and feels like a netbook, with a tacky plastic shell, middling display and cramped keyboard.

There’s a lot to like about the Asus Transformer Book T100. It’s small and cheap, gets long battery life, and offers decent performance whether you use it as a notebook or a tablet.

The Asus Transformer Book T100TA is the first Atom-powered consumer PC that we can wholly endorse after the virtual death of the netbook after 2011. It's running a full version of Windows 8.1, so you won't give up any legacy programs, third-party browsers, or plug-ins that you've grown accustomed to over the years. It works all day in the touch-enabled tablet form factor that people have grown accustomed to since the rise of the tablet in 2010. It also works in the traditional netbook/laptop form factor that we recommend for extended typing and work sessions. The Transformer Book T100TA trounces the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 10, Acer Iconia W3, and even full-sized laptops like the Dell Inspiron 15 (I15RV-6190 BLK) on performance, features, and bang for the buck.

We’re really impressed with the Asus Transformer Book T100. Its 10.1-inch scale works well as either a tablet or a laptop, even if the keyboard does feel a little squeezed up on initial use. It’s something that we got over, though, and given how responsive and bright the touchscreen is you might find you only want to dabble in Windows with your fingers instead. In context to the rest of the market it's a real winner. It might be a touch more cash than a Chromebook competitor, but the Asus has so much more to offer. We think it’s an excellent device and one not to be overlooked.

Source: PC World English
The tablet looks and feels like so many other slates. It’s a 10-inch slab of screen with a few ports and buttons on its edges. The buttons are hidden behind the curve of the tablet so you can’t see them when you look from the front. It makes for a clean look, but they can be tricky to find by feel. On the left side of the top edge, you’ll find the lock button. Moving around the corner to the left edge there’s a volume rocker and a start button. The Windows logo in the center of the bottom bezel does nothing.

Despite its few flaws, the Asus Transformer T100 is a capable tablet and laptop. It won’t win any performance crowns compared to more capable processors in its Core i3, i5 and i7 bigger brothers but it is definitely a more welcome improvement over the netbooks we used to chastise for their sluggish processors and overall experiences. Were it not for the clunky touchpad, the T100 would have been perfect. The T100 is a serious contender for the budget laptop and tablet market and at only AED 1699 for the 64GB version, it could start a new trend of affordable Windows based tablets just like how Asus started the netbook craze a few years back.

In our last Transformer review we said its design was getting a bit musty. However, that was an Android tablet. And a low-cost hybrid like this is just what the Windows 8 tablet market needs. The Asus Transformer Book T100 feels like a necessary maturing of the budget Windows tablet. It’s practical, pretty powerful, has a half-decent screen and its flexible design mitigates the lack of games and apps designed for Windows tablets – compared to Android and iOS tablets.

81% Review Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Convertible | Notebookcheck
Triple champion? Tablets with a keyboard dock are an old hat? Notebooks are prehistoric? Android tablets are cheap slowpokes? Asus combines these three categories, and the result is not outdated, archaic or boring.
70% Asus Transformer Book Trio
Source: Computer Shopper English
As a versatile piece of hardware, the Asus Transformer Book Trio is impressively well designed. Asus has crafted an attractive device that runs both Windows for (mostly) productivity and Android for media consumption and apps. And the two operating systems play pretty well side by side. But the device is also relatively heavy, and its battery life is disappointing, especially for the tablet alone.

80% Asus' Vision of the Hybrid—Mark Two
Source: Digital Versus English
The Asus Transformer Book T300 is the best laptop/tablet hybrid we've reviewed to date! Whether in tablet or laptop mode, it met all of our expectations (with the exception, naturally, of gaming), and has an ace screen and long-lasting battery to boot. Our only real complaint is the skimpy connectivity.

Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300
Source: Trusted Reviews English
There are a few awkward parts to the Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300. Its headline price doesn't reflect the version of the product we'd want to own, and even at its full spec it won't feel as impressive as an aluminium or magnesium Ultrabook. However, the ease with which the TD300 switches between Android and Windows is impressive. And while many will dismiss this as a solution to a non-existent problem, the idea of being able to take off your laptop's screen to watch or play on the sofa or in bed isn't a bad one.

As if a two-in-one wasn't enough, Asus has gone down the road of "four-in-one" with the Transformer Book Duet TD300. Part laptop, part tablet, all Windows 8.1 and all Android - is it the ultimate device without compromise or a confused take on the multiples concept?

100% Where Windows Meets Android
Source: Digital Versus English
Asus pulled it off and fused three products into one unique device that costs the price of an entry-level ultrabook. However, just because we gave it five stars doesn't mean it's absolutely perfect: it could use an SSD and better intercommunication between the two systems... But for a first attempt, it's a definite win!

Source: Expert Reviews English
At £900, the Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA might seem overpriced, but you’re getting two products in one device for the price of one laptop. Neither device is particularly exceptional on its own, but the combination of the two makes this one of the best value hybrids available.

Source: PC Pro English
As a concept, we can see some appeal in the Transformer Book Trio TX201LA. The hardware is well designed, the display is excellent, and the fact that the Android and Windows halves of the device work entirely independently raises some interesting possibilities. However, there's a glaring issue, namely that this is neither an outstanding Windows laptop nor a great Android tablet – and, at £900, it simply isn't affordable enough for us to forgive its flaws.

This THREESOME is a HANDFUL: It’s the Asus Transformer Book Trio
Source: Reg Hardware English
So, does three into one go? Pretty much, yes. Having a fully functional Android tablet and a Windows 8.1 PC in one package and both with a fine 1080p display certainly has its attractions. Cough up a few hundred quid for a monitor and it becomes an even more flexible package. There are a few slightly rough edges, like the wonky file sharing hotspot and the absence of a keyboard backlight on the cheaper i5 machines. And the batteries could be little more beefy. But there’s no denying that with one of these in your backpack you have got all the bases covered for work or play or anything in between.

Asus reviews


:

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge): In the mobile Ivy Bridge Celeron and Pentium CPUs integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs) and only one texture sampler - compared to the GT2 HD Graphics 4000.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3650: Integrated processor graphics card (e.g. in the Atom N2800) without dedicated memory. Most likely based on a PowerVR design similar to the GMA 500 but with higher clock rates.

unknown:

PowerVR SGX544:

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z2580: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at 1.3 - 2 GHz (short bursts), a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 based GPU clocked at 400 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.

Z3740: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.86 GHz (Turbo), an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a dual channel LPDDR3-1067 memory controller.

Z2560: SoC with an integrated dual-core Atom based CPU clocked at 0.9 - 1.6 (short bursts), a 400 MHz PowerVR SGX 544MP2 graphics card, and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.

Intel Core i5:

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i3:

4010U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with no Turbo Boost support. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

:


10.1: The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions.

13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.7 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


78.62%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
