    The integrated LTE modem offers the user Internet on-the-go, but the Transformer is too expensive compared to the competition. Sadly Asus sacrifices the USB 3.0 port in the dock.The good battery life and strong IPS panel are great traits. However, the scr...

    Good: T100:, Cheap, New processor for better multitasking, Small and lightweight, Great battery life, T200:, Similar processor to new T100 (good performance), More ports and expansion bay, More comfortable keyboard and touchpad, Rearfacing camera

    Bad: T100:

    If you're shopping for a new Windows laptop this holiday season, there's a very good chance that you'll consider spending your hard-earned money on either the affordable Asus Transformer Book T100 or the slightly larger and slightly more expensive T200. T...

  • With the T100, Asus has shown that they can produce a cheap yet well built device yet again; an ode to their success with the Eee PC. The tablet itself feels a bit flimsy and cheap with the smooth plastic back, and the keyboard has the mediocre quality yo...

    Good: Win8.1 and x86 for $400, nice IPS screen, excellent battery life.

    Bad: Aggravating keyboard/trackpad, charging through Micro USB takes hours

    Looking at Microsoft's hardware model, you might think that all Windows tablet/laptop hybrids fall into one of two camps: capable-but-pricey, à la the Surface 2 Pro, or the opposite of that, i.e. the ARM-toting, Windows RT–sporting Surface 2. Luckily, no...

  • Good: Well made, Highquality keyboard, Good battery life, Affordable price

    Bad: Cramped keyboard, 10.1inch screen seems small in notebook mode, Few ports, no Ethernet, Minimal internal storage

    The Asus Transformer Book T100 will present many people with the sort of dilemma they may have faced when considering a netbook a few years ago. It functions as a standard Windows computer, running applications and accessing the cloud, and has a decent ke...

  • Good: Great battery life, USB 3.0 hub on the keyboard, Solid performance of the Intel Bay Trail processor, Affordable price,

    Bad: Insufficient display resolution, Plastic body and keyboard, No rearfacing camera, Unpolished keyboard touchpad

    On one hand, the Asus Transformer Book T100 can be seen as the successor of the Asus VivoTab (now with Windows 8.1), or, on the other hand, as a cheaper match for Microsoft's Surface Pro 2, where the dock and keyboard take on the role of Type Cover. With...

    Good: For under $500 you get a versatile Windows tablet and a decent keyboard dock for laptoplike functionality. Bay Trail delivers performance and battery life as good as competing ARM SoCs.

    Bad: A 1366x768 display doesn't cut it anymore. Glossy design is a massive fingerprint magnet. In its laptop form, the Transformer Book is reasonably heavy.

    Windows is still relatively new to the tablet market, with the launch of Windows 8 occurring just a little over a year ago. But that doesn't mean the market isn't filled with options for consumers, ranging from ARM-based Windows RT options such as the Mic...

  • Good: fantastic battery, great speakers, no lag, good CPU for the money, runs Bioshock, bundled Office, good price, And the

    Bad: plastic case, no back camera, weak brightness, not many unique ASUS bundled apps, Windows 8.1 still not very appealing

    If you want a tablet that's good enough to run Bioshock and offer you half a day of usage, then you may be interested in the ASUS device we're reviewing below. This is the ASUS Transformer Book T100TA model, a hybrid between a 10 inch tablet and a netbook...

    Good: Solid performance, long battery life, Runs traditional desktop apps, Screen offers good viewing angles, Inexpensive, includes keyboard dock, Almost no bloatware

    Bad: Cramped, flimsy keyboard, Cheap build materials, We wish the screen were brighter

    With cheap build quality and a mediocre display, the T100 is far from perfect. But thanks to some solid performance and generous pricing, it still offers incredible bang for your buck....

  • In the interest of full disclosure, I think I should point out that I already own a Nexus 7 and I use it on a daily basis. Furthermore the T100TA is not a review sample. I got it as a company bonus. Now that I've tried it out, I intend to keep...

  • Good: Runs the full version of Windows 8, Physical keyboard included, Can be used as either a small laptop or a Windows tablet

    Bad: Cheap construction and feel, Not as powerful as some convertible laptops

    The Asus Transformer Book T100 just looks like a netbook. Under the hood, a drastically enhanced Atom processor runs rings around its predecessor and provides plenty of power for real everyday productivity. Detach the display and you have a great 10-inch ...

    Date: 12/10/2013

    Good: Incredibly low price for the functionality,

    Bad: Some design compromises, significant early teething pains due to bad firmware, finicky wireless

    The Asus Transformer Book T100 is the first of a new breed of hybrid tablets that combines the low-cost design of netbooks of the late 2000s with the modern performance and efficiency of tablets. Coming in at $399 with 64GB of storage (or $349 for the nea...

  • This is not an iPad killer, or even a rival to the Surface Pro 2. But at £349 it is a compelling deal. The Asus Transformer Book T100T is a compact device that offers true functionality and decent performance. And it is a truly portable office PC. Much mo...

    Good: Well priced, Keyboard dock included, Full Windows 8.1

    Bad: Tacky build materials, Average display, Windows not quite on par with iOS/Android

    Once upon a time, manufacturers thought that extremely affordable PCs called netbooks were a good idea. As it turns out, they were all kind of bad. Build quality was poor, but worst of all, they were ridiculously slow. Netbooks thankfully died a slow deat...

    Good: The Asus Transformer Book T100 runs full Windows 8.1, comes with a keyboard, has great battery life, and is a steal if you can find it for $350.

    Bad: The cramped keyboard feels like an old Netbook's used to; not as fast as zippier, larger, more expensive Windows products; display not that vibrant.

    The Asus Transformer Book T100 revives the Netbook value proposition (and Netbook usability issues) in a budget-priced 10-inch laptop that doubles as a tablet. You won’t love it, but for sheer bang for the buck, it’s hard to beat.

  • Good: Bay Trail is the Atom processor we never knew we needed, Intel HD Graphics get it a modicum of gaming potential, More performance than we're used to from a netbook, Versatile design without the high cost of the Surface, Excellent battery Life, microSD slo...

    Bad: A bit on the heavy side, even just on tablet, No extra battery in the keyboard dock leaves it envious of its Android kin, With just 3264GB onboard, storage is scarce, The power/volume/Start buttons are a squishy mess, Display lacks pixels

    The Asus Transformer T100 has three players in its story: Windows 8.1, Intel, and Asus. For Microsoft's Windows 8.1, the biggest competition comes not from Google or Apple, but from the hundreds of millions of PCs already running Windows 7, Vista, and XP...

  • Good: Affordable cost, Include keyboard dock, Great battery life

    Bad: Plastic casing is prone to scratches, Trackpad is stiff

    Hey, we still can’t wrap our heads around the fact that the Asus Transformer Book T100 is priced at $349 for the base 32GB model – with the 64GB at an equally pleasing $399. On top of that, the cost includes the keyboard dock attachment, which is somet...

  • I hated netbooks. That might seem an odd way to launch the conclusion of a review, but I think I need to start there to give my fair opinion on the Transformer Book. From the first Eee PC, through NVIDIA's Ion, and right up through Clover ...

  • There's a lot to like about the Asus Transformer Book T100. It's small and cheap, gets long battery life, and offers decent performance whether you use it as a notebook or a tablet. It won't be the best computer for everyone: The keyboard and touchpad...

    Good: Full Windows 8.1 hybrid tablet. Can run all Windows programs. Light. Great price. 11 hours battery life. MicroUSB recharging. 1TB of cloud storage included (for a year). 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi. Comes with full Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013. Keyboard...

    Bad: Only 2GB of system memory. Touchy trackpad. Only 31GB of free space on SSD. Smaller than standard keyboard. Slow recharge times

    For a sub-$400 price, the Asus Transformer Book T100TA is a fully functional Windows 8.1 hybrid tablet, and the natural successor to the netbook ideal from a few years ago. It gives you a bright, usable PC an affordable price. Plus it avoids all of the c...

    Good: Great battery life, Keyboard dock included, Very responsive

    Bad: Flakey touchpad on keyboard, Cramped keyboard, Topheavy in notebook mode

    The Transformer Book T100 delivers a solid tablet experience and a good notebook experience in one machine. But it would be even better with a superior keyboard and trackpad....

    The Asus Transformer Book T100 is the first machine to ship with the Intel Atom Bay Trail platform, and it heralds the advent of affordable Windows 8.1 tablets with touchscreens and convertible designs. To achieve these very low prices, you won't get ...

    Good: Low price includes keyboard and Microsoft Office, Light weight, Long battery life, “Bay Trail” Atom CPU makes Windows 8.1 feel snappy

    Bad: Unresponsive touch pad, Petite keyboard

    The people who brought you the netbook bring you its 2013 equivalent—a $399 mini laptop/detachable tablet with a 10.1-inch touch screen and 11-hour battery life. With Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Office preinstalled, it shoots to the top of our list of tabl...

  • The 64GB Transformer Book T100 we tested is priced at just $400, and the 32GB version will sell for $50 less. Even though a device like this has been such a long time coming, I don't think anyone expected it to be this affordable. Not that I'm complainin...

    Good: Very long battery life; Inexpensive; Keyboard included; Microsoft Office preloaded; Solid Bay Trail performance; Good webcam

    Bad: Very slow to charge; Stiff inconsistent touchpad; Cramped keyboard; Awkward Start button placement

    The ASUS Transformer Book T100 offers fantastic battery life, a peppy Atom Bay Trail processor and a keyboard for less than the Surface 2....

  • Assault first and foremost comes from Google's latest lineup of Chromebooks. The HP Chromebook 11 addresses many of these concerns but with a fairly limited OS and silicon that's honestly a bit too slow, even for the target market. But you do get an aweso...
