Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book T100TAM

76% Asus Transformer Book T100 vs T200: Battle of the Budget 2-in-1
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The bottom line is that you can’t have everything in life or electronics; if you want to have to most compact, full-featured Windows laptop with great battery life at a low price then the Transformer Book T100 is your best choice. If you value a nice keyboard, want to connect multiple USB devices, need an Ethernet port, and want to upgrade your laptop later, the larger, heavier, and slightly more expensive T200 belongs on your shopping list.

70% Asus Transformer Book T100TAM review – revamped!
Source: TLBHD English
Long story short, the Asus Transformer Book T100TAM is a marginal update of the popular T100TA model. It gets a metallic case, a slightly bumped processor and faster graphics, plus a more color-accurate display, while inheriting all its other traits. Hopefully Asus worked on their quality-control process as well and we won’t see as many units with faulty wireless chips and batteries.

Asus Transformer Books T100TAM and T200TA reviews
Source: Ultrabook Review English
People buy these small 2-in-1s for what they can do, for their ability to run legacy software as well as the touch-optimized apps, for the keyboards they provide and the ability to connect accessories when needed, something that’s a bit more difficult to do with an iPad or an Android tablet. And the 10 inch screen might be indeed too small to provide an enjoyable Desktop-mode experience, while there’s just not enough space for a proper keyboard and trackpad on a device this small.

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).


Z3775: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at 1.46 - 2.39 GHz, 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":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.61 kg:

This weight is typical for small tablets.


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.
