Asus Transformer Book T100 Review

February 10, 2014 by Dragan Petric Reads (223,173)

Performance and Battery Life

The new generation of the Atom processor (Bay Trail architecture) in this device shows that combined with 2GB of RAM, it can offer great performance in all aspects of everyday usage (Internet, multimedia, documents). All this with almost no warming up, which is why the Transformer Book T100 is as quiet as a tomb while running.

Asus Transformer Book T100 comes with 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with microSD cards. If you mainly use this 2-in-1 as a tablet then you will surely find this capacity limiting with time.

Low power consumption is praiseworthy, as the device provides over 8 hours of battery life (the battery is built in inside the screen). On the other hand, the recharging takes quite a long time and despite the fact that batteries of competitive models are recharged much faster, this great battery life is perhaps the tablet’s biggest selling point, apart from its low price.

On that note, the device comes with the full suite of Microsoft Office 2013: Home & Student, which makes the reasonable price all the more affordable.

    This review, although in-depth, seemed like it was written by someone who learned English as a second language. Although it was a very thorough review and the author clearly expended a lot of effort, reading it was a chore and sometimes confusing due to odd word choices and awkward phrasing.
