Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book T300

Asus Transformer Book T300 hands-on: Move over Surface, Asus wins at HD laptop-meets-tablet design
Source: Pocket Lint English
When it comes to laptop-meets-tablet devices Asus knows what it's doing. The latest Transformer Book T300 is proof of that - it's a super-high resolution Windows 8 device that, from what we've seen at the IFA electronics show, has the upper hand compared to many of its similar rivals.

ASUS Transformer Book T300L
Source: Itsvet HR→EN
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.

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.

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.


1.2 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.
