Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book TX300CA-C4006H

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 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.


1.9 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.
