Product on Review: Transformer Book T100HA
Manufacturer & Sponsor: ASUS
Street Price: £190 GBP / $250 USD
The tablet marketplace has become extremely buoyant in the last 3-4 years – so much so that it can almost be guaranteed that the average household will own at least one of these products. Although popularity has risen for this type of device there are still some setbacks which niggle certain individuals and may even put off traditional users from a purchase and that issue is the lack of keyboard functionality.
Seeking to merge the tablet and notebook together, ASUS has engineered the trusty Transformer Book T100HA. This 2-in-1 device is essentially a 10-inch Windows 10 tablet that comes with a detachable keyboard. Being able to combine both these components allows the user to get the best of both worlds while on-the-go. Furthermore, ASUS has added in a burly quad-core Intel Z8500 processor and the capability to take advantage of up to 12 hours of usage. Is this enough to make the new Transformer Book a good deal? Let’s find out!
ASUS on their Transformer Book T100HA
Let's admit it: carrying both a tablet and a laptop is a nuisance. The 10.1-inch T100HA is a 2-in-1, which means exactly what it says — it's a laptop with a keyboard that detaches, turning it into a 8.4mm-thin and 580g-light Windows 10 tablet (yes, Windows 10 is pre-installed!). So it’s two devices, in one amazing package. It's a simple idea that's elegant and convenient, too. Need to work? It's a powerful laptop. Time to relax? Detach the keyboard and it's a handy tablet. No fuss, no hassle. What’s more, it’s the only 2-in-1 with the revolutionary time-saving USB 3.1 Type-C port. And with up to an incredible 12 hours battery life, it’s always ready — for work or play!
