Asus unveils Transformer Book T100HA and TP200SA
The long-running Transformer Book series will now have two new members coming later this month called the 10.1-inch T100HA and the 11.6-inch TP200SA. These budget Windows 10 convertibles will sport a wide array of connectivity features including USB 3.0, USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 4.1, Microsoft Cortana, and 802.11ac wireless depending on the model. Fast-charge is supported and can go from 0 to 80 percent capacity in just two hours time. These convertibles are squarely aimed at home multimedia users similar to the 13-inch Transformer Book T300 Chi.
First, the detachable T100HA will carry Intel's new Atom x5 Z8500 Cherry Trail processor and promises up to 12 hours of battery life. It uses the same Neodymium magnets as the T300 Chi for attaching its tablet portion to its keyboard base. We found the connection to sway a bit too much for our liking, however, so hopefully Asus has improved upon its locking mechanism with the newer and smaller T100HA.
The Transformer Book Flip TP200SA will feature the Celeron N3050 Braswell CPU for up to 8 hours of battery life. This is essentially Asus' answer to the Lenovo Flex and Yoga series for users interested in a 2-in-1 via the 360-degree hinge.
The T100HA and TP200SA will launch for $299 and $349, respectively. The T100HA will come in White, Blue, Red, and Gray colors while the TP200SA will be available in Blue. We recommend checking out the full specifications for each of the devices in the press release below.
