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?

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.

60% ASUS Transformer Book T100 User Review: A Few Months Later
Source: Notebookreview.com English
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.

The 10.1-inch Transformer Book T100 is a well made and attractively priced hybrid Windows 8.1 tablet. However, its moderate specification and small size make it difficult to recommend as your primary Windows device.

With a latest-generation Intel Atom processor at its helm, the Transformer Book T100 is capable of supplying a swift and mostly enjoyable Windows 8.1 tablet experience. It still struggles with some tasks, such as high-quality Web streaming, which could be a deal-breaker if that's one of your main undertakings.

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.

Pros: For under $500 you get a versatile Windows tablet and a decent keyboard dock for laptop-like functionality. Bay Trail delivers performance and battery life as good as competing ARM SoCs. Cons: A 1366x768 display doesn’t cut it anymore. Glossy design is a massive fingerprint magnet. In its laptop form, the Transformer Book is reasonably heavy.

This can be lighter than an Android Tablet, however it runs Windows 8.1. The transformer part is a near full size detachable keyboard so all your Windows programs should run and it comes with Microsoft Office installed. If you travel a lot then this is a very light unit. 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 T100TA is kind of different for a hybrid. It has extremely low performance as a laptop (productivity and web browsing will be all you do on it), but excellent performance as a tablet. Considering the price, it would be a great choice as a standalone Windows 8 slate.

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. While the Rs 34,000 price isn’t expensive for such a device, it is Rs 10,000 more than in the netbook range. It is one device I’d heartily recommend to anyone looking for both a Tablet and Laptop.

ASUS Transformer Book T100 review: a Windows tablet with netbook roots

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. Still, it offers solid performance for the money, allowing you to run full Windows programs when some pricier tablets will only run apps from the Windows Store.

ASUS looks to be redefining the budget computing market by providing a very well rounded option for those that want to have a tablet that can also act as a laptop system with a full version of Windows for under $400. The system offers an experience very close to many low cost ultraportable systems but with more flexibility.

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."

Rebirth of the affordable portable PC

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. It won’t be the best computer for everyone: The keyboard and touchpad are small, the screen resolution might be a bit too sharp when running apps that aren’t optimized for high-resolution screens, but it’s not as sharp as the screens on the latest iPads.

90% Asus Transformer Book T100TA (64GB)
Source: PC Mag English
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.

The Transformer Book is not without flaws, however. It feels like a $399 device, for starters—especially its stiff keyboard dock and flakey touchpad. But it’s hard to argue with the battery life and performance for the price. Lenovo makes a great keyboard, but it’s not $180 better.

80% Transformer Book T100 review: This hybrid fills both its tablet and notebook roles well
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.

The 1366 x 768 resolution screen might not be Full HD, like the Nexus 7, but for this price point we think that's a fair enough compromise. The 32GB on-board eMMC storage also isn't a total knockout, but there's a microSD slot so you can add in an additional 64GB at minimal cost.

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.

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.

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

» 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).


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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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


1.113 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.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

80.65%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
