Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book TX300CA-C4032P
Asus has once again built a very finely crafted and desirable product, but that’s not enough to make a it a commercial success. The Core i5 variant of the Transformer Book is priced at a whopping Rs 91,999, which we find exorbitantly expensive. Samsung’s ATIV hybrid PC shares a similar configuration (minus the 500GB HDD) and design and is priced almost Rs 20,000 lesser. Our other main issue with the Transformer Book is the weight. It’s simply too heavy to be carried around as a complete notebook. Asus has created a very good tablet, with great connectivity, but sadly, it doesn’t work very well as notebook as far as portability is concerned.

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.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
