Reviews for the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C-1B072A

83% Asus Transformer Pad TF103C-1B072A Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Transformer - The Return. An Android tablet with a keyboard dock is a handy thing. Asus' Transformer pads were always good representatives of this category until now. Why this remains to be true for the Transformer Pad TF103C-1B072A although some compromises have to be made can be read in this test.

Given the $429 price point, there are probably better tablets you could find without the keyboard, and we’d probably look at these, factoring an extra hundred or so for a decent set of keys. If this is a must-hit price, fine, but once again, we’d probably see if anything else fits the bill, because with less expensive and better performing Chromebooks out there, as well as more capable tablets without keyboards, we’ve probably choose those instead.

As far as budget tablet options go, people have quite a few. Seven and ten inch bodies alike have been out for a while, and so it’s not as if it’s hard to find something for a price point, but packaged with a physical keyboard, well that’s a different story altogether. But while the Asus Transformer does manage to provide the combo for a price point, it’s not the best you can get, not by a long shot.

Asus says the Asus Transformer Pad TF103 will last for nine hours playing movies at 720p, with Wi-Fi on and brightness at 100nits. We put it through some pretty extensive video streaming, and got closer to eight hours of real use without tweaking any of the settings. So it should last you a working day. Just easy on the cat videos

As a budget tablet, the ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C hits many of the right notes. For $299, it offers a vivid 1280 x 800 touch screen, loud audio, solid Intel Atom performance and, most importantly, a clamshell keyboard dock. The fact that it runs Android 4.4 KitKat is a major plus as well. However, the keyboard feels cramped, and the touchpad is uncomfortably stiff.

Around back is a 2-megapixel camera, complemented by a 0.3-megpaixel front-facing camera. They're useful for apps that require one, and the front-facing sensor at least makes video chats possible, but neither should be relied upon for any critical photography. Images are overly noisy, devoid of detail, and suffer from exposure and white balance issues. Video tops out at 720p and looks similarly subpar.

Until now, if we had been asked to recommend a budget tablet, we'd have plumped for the Nexus 7 straight away, but the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C has given us another option. For fans of large-screened tablets who might want to do a touch of work on the move, its performance, display quality and usable keyboard make it a worthy alternative.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z3745: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.86 GHz (Turbo), an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a dual channel LPDDR3-1067 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it 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. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.55 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.

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.
