Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book T100HA-C4-GR
More than meets the eye? Asus has leveraged the criticism of their T100 Chi to concoct a completely refined successor which corrects nearly all of its issues. Plus, just for kicks, it’s 25% less expensive, too! Is this the Chromebook killer Windows needs?

The Asus Transformer Book T100HA is lighter and easier to carry around than similarly priced entry-level laptops, and offers a touchscreen experience that you wouldn't otherwise get. The specifications are mostly low-end but up-to-date. You'll also have to live with limited storage, zero upgradability, and a keyboard and trackpad that simply aren't very good.

Given the cheaper price of the T100HA versus the Click, its higher performance result in PCMark 8 Home’s benchmark was a great surprise, posting 1581 versus the Click’s 1277. This doesn’t make it a game-devouring performance-pig, but the T100HA has ample oomph to handle multitasking of normal daily duties like email, web browsing and virus scanning. PCMark also turned in an impressive battery life of 282 minutes.

While the original Transformer Book may have been an affordable trailblazer, the Asus Transformer Book T100HA feels outdated, slow and unremarkable. It's still pretty solid, but quite frankly you'd be better off with a Chromebook if you want a cheap laptop, a regular tablet if you want a slate, or a Surface if a hybrid tablet appeals.

The Transformer Book T100HA is a lesson in how to ruin a promising, affordable Windows device with one terrible flaw. In case you hadn’t already guessed, I’m referring to the keyboard – it is, by any measure, unutterably awful. If it weren’t for the full-sized USB 2 port, I’d be tempted to throw it in the bin. This is a crying shame, because there really is a lot to like elsewhere. This is a nicely executed budget Windows tablet with 64GB of storage; it’s long-lasting; and it’s not much slower than Microsoft’s Surface 3 – that’s not to be sniffed at for £230. And if you desperately want a 10in Windows 2-in-1 for under £250, then you may possibly be able to find it in your heart to make peace with the Asus’ keyboard.

The Asus Transformer Book T100HA combines the value of an old-fashionednetbook with the mod cons of a convertible PC. Unlike premium 2-in-1 solutions, the T100HA doesn't attempt to excel in all areas and instead offers the basics of tablet and laptop computing in an accessible package priced from £229.

As a tablet hybrid, the Asus Transformer Book T100HA is a decent option. But if being able to switch from tablet to laptop on the fly isn’t your top priority, look elsewhere.

Despite our forced positivity above, we can't say that we enjoyed our time with the T100HA. It's not an immediately friendly laptop, at least in this grey incarnation, and the poor keyboard means it's mostly useful as a tablet – and not a wonderfully good value one at that. That said, for the right role, this is a good purchase – if you want a laptop/tablet that can handle just about any office task and won't need recharging for a good long time. Just be aware that when you do set it charging, you may want to consider going into hibernation yourself.

We can't help but remark, however, that under-$400 2-in-1's are a lot more popular and easier to find than they were two years ago. If the T100 was a landmark, the T100HA is, well, a sequel—and one that doesn't enjoy the first model's enviable position of going without competition for some time (and inspiring resellers, in the meantime, to jack up its price).

For £299.99, the Transformer Book T100HA offers reasonable performance, decent battery life and all the perks of Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system. However, it’s design does border on being dull and I’m a little disappointed with its display’s 1280 x 800 resolution. But even with these issues, the Transformer Book T100HA is a solid choice for any buyer looking for an affordable Windows 10 convertible.

This is the latest Asus Transformer Book and one of the best affordable 10-inch Windows tablets of the moment. It tucks inside a sleek metallic body a nice screen, the latest Intel low-power platform and a 30 Wh battery. It's not perfect, but it's a great device for what it costs, so if you're in the market for such a compact slate/mini-laptop, you should have it on your list.

Model: The Asus Transformer Book T100HA is a 2-in-1 convertible, providing both tablet and laptop experience in a single device. Similar to its earlier T100 Chi sibling, this model comes with an easy coupling mechanism for detaching the screen from the keyboard. Weighing at just 0.58 kg for the tablet alone and an additional 0.46 kg for the bundled keyboard, this model is very portable and it is definitely suitable to be brought around on a day-to-day basis. In addition, this model brings plenty of upgrades compared to the T100 Chi predecessor, making it a reasonable purchase especially with its lower price point. It comes with the latest Windows OS, Windows 10 Home pre-installed.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
