Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA-CQ004

100% Where Windows Meets Android
Source: Digital Versus English
Asus pulled it off and fused three products into one unique device that costs the price of an entry-level ultrabook. However, just because we gave it five stars doesn't mean it's absolutely perfect: it could use an SSD and better intercommunication between the two systems... But for a first attempt, it's a definite win!

At £900, the Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA might seem overpriced, but you’re getting two products in one device for the price of one laptop. Neither device is particularly exceptional on its own, but the combination of the two makes this one of the best value hybrids available.

As a concept, we can see some appeal in the Transformer Book Trio TX201LA. The hardware is well designed, the display is excellent, and the fact that the Android and Windows halves of the device work entirely independently raises some interesting possibilities. However, there's a glaring issue, namely that this is neither an outstanding Windows laptop nor a great Android tablet – and, at £900, it simply isn't affordable enough for us to forgive its flaws.

This THREESOME is a HANDFUL: It’s the Asus Transformer Book Trio
Source: Reg Hardware English
So, does three into one go? Pretty much, yes. Having a fully functional Android tablet and a Windows 8.1 PC in one package and both with a fine 1080p display certainly has its attractions. Cough up a few hundred quid for a monitor and it becomes an even more flexible package. There are a few slightly rough edges, like the wonky file sharing hotspot and the absence of a keyboard backlight on the cheaper i5 machines. And the batteries could be little more beefy. But there’s no denying that with one of these in your backpack you have got all the bases covered for work or play or anything in between.
