Comment

Model:

These days everyone is looking for a device that can perform multiple tasks while conforming to the desired form factor. The Asus Transformer Pad TF303CL-1D050A is just that device; being able to shed its useful keyboard and become purely a tablet. There is a 10.1 inch LED backlight WUXGA IPS panel display with 10 finger multi-touch support and anti-fingerprint coating.

At the heart of the device is an Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core up to 1.8 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM. Storage on the device is either 16 GB or 32 GB depending on the variant with the option to add a MicroSD card up to 64 GB. The Asus ZenUI is claimed to be the next generation interface for Asus smart devices, and it is placed on top Android 4.4 operating system to ensure easy usability.

Other hardware includes a 1.2 MP front camera/ 5 MP rear camera with auto focus, dual front speakers, Micro HDMI port, docking connector, and all the common sensors found on current tablets. The Asus Transformer Pad TF303CL-1D050A comes in either blue or gold and weighs in at 595 g. Battery life lasts around 9.5 hours with a Li-polymer cell.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

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.


0.595 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.
