Asus Transformer Book T100T Review: It's a Tablet

We seldom review PC laptop but we decided to do this. Well at least the Asus Transformer Book T100T is not truly just a laptop, but a Windows tablet. The Transformer Book T100T is a refreshed version of the T100. It has a newer processor and now comes with multi-color options.

What You Get From It?
- 10.1" HD (1,366 x 768 pixels) display
- 1.46 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3775 processor
- 500 GB HDD with 32 GB eMMC storage
- 1.2 MP front-facing camera
- 31 Whrs 2 Cell battery
- Windows 8.1 32-bit
- Free Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013

Regular Tablet Look

If you know the Android-powered Transformer Pad, you probably will find that the Transformer Book T100T looks familiar. Yes, both have the Transformer naming, so it's nothing wrong with the identical design.

Just like the Transformer Pad, there are ports below the tablet which is for the keyboard dock to detach. The tablet has 32 GB eMMC internal storage, while adding the keyboard dock will give you extra 500 GB HDD (465 GB available).

The dual speakers with SonicMaster are located at the back of the tablet, just like most of the Asus tablets. Asus has managed to put everything inside the 10.5 mm thin body. Adding the keyboard dock which measures at 13.95 mm thick will increase the thickness of it.

The keyboard dock comes with extra 500 GB HDD internal storage, and it has the one and the only USB 3.0 port at the left side of it. Not sure why the keyboard dock is so thick as it has only HDD storage and USB 3.0 ports, while the microUSB port, 3.5 mm headphone jack and micro HDMI port are at the tablet.

10.1" HD IPS Display with Wide Viewing Angle

The Transformer Book T100T sports a 10.1" HD (1,366 x 768 pixels) IPS display. Being a Windows tablet, the display is different from other Windows laptops. Although its resolution is not as high as Android tablet now a day, but the viewing experience is still good. Viewing texts and images on internet isn't a problem. And, its viewing angle is wide too.

PC Link - Bringing Asus Android Device To The Screen

There's nothing much to talk about Windows user interface as all are same and familiar. However, the difference between Asus Windows devices and other Windows devices is it comes with a few software app. One of it is the PC Link, PC Link allows you to control your Asus Android devices using the Transformer Book T100T. All you need to do is turn on the USB debugging on your Android device, and connect to the PC with microUSB cable, and you are good to go. Of course, you need to install the app on your Transformer Book T100T.

Intel Atom Z3775 SoC - Good For Apps From Microsoft Store

Powering the device is a 1.46 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3775 processor, much faster than Asus Fonepad and MeMO Pad series. It is able to handle some high graphic games from Microsoft Store like Asphalt 8 well, but not ideal for those games that only able to run on at least Intel i3 processor. Multitasking seems well although 2 GB RAM is not enough for a Windows device.

Final Words

Pricing at RM 1,499, the Asus Transformer Book T100T is actually a well worth Windows 8.1 tablet. It comes with free Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 and the dock is detachable too. It is light and convenient to bring out, so if you're not a heavy laptop user, it's worth to consider.

- Convenient to bring out
- Impressive display
- Free Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013

- Wi-Fi bugs
- Thick keyboard dock
