Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA

81% Review Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Convertible | Notebookcheck
Triple champion? Tablets with a keyboard dock are an old hat? Notebooks are prehistoric? Android tablets are cheap slowpokes? Asus combines these three categories, and the result is not outdated, archaic or boring.

The Asus Transformer Book Trio presents a collection of contradictions. The laptop and tablet performance, taken separately, are actually very good, while the marriage of two separate devices and operating systems provides clever solutions to several unique technical problems. This combining of devices and operating systems is riddled with problems, however, from the kludgy approach to file sharing to booting problems and power issues when switching between tablet and laptop. In the end, the problematic design and very high price outweigh the benefits offered by the otherwise decent performance of the Transformer Book Trio in either laptop or tablet mode.

As a versatile piece of hardware, the Asus Transformer Book Trio is impressively well designed. Asus has crafted an attractive device that runs both Windows for (mostly) productivity and Android for media consumption and apps. And the two operating systems play pretty well side by side. But the device is also relatively heavy, and its battery life is disappointing, especially for the tablet alone.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

11.6": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.703 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.


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. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

77%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
