The T100 offers impressive specs for a budget device

We got a first look at the Transformer Book T100 back at IDF, but the final product is here and ready for pre-order.

The new mobile device features a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 IPS display, a 1.8 GHz Intel Atom Z3740 quad-core processor, 7th generation Intel HD graphics, 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage, a 1.2 MP front-facing camera, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n wifi, Bluetooth 4.0, a micro USB slot, a micro HDMI slot, and up to 11 hours of battery life. The keyboard dock adds a full sized USB 3.0 port.

As one of the least expensive Windows convertibles we've ever seen, the T100 comes close to being a netbook with a detachable screen (though it sports a much faster Bay Trail processor). It's not much heavier either, with the tablet portion weighing only 1.21 pounds and the dock another 1.15 pounds. Like all sub 11-inch Windows devices, Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 comes pre-installed. Asus also took a page out of Kobo's book and built in a dedicated reading mode which optimizes screen brightness to make long reading sessions easier on the eyes.

The new Transformer Book is not in stores just yet, but a number of online retailers already have the 32 GB T100 listed, with prices starting at US$399.
