At $350, the Asus Transformer Book T100HA isn’t a bad deal, but it’s not a spectacular one either. Sure, it has a relatively affordable price to go with its nice build and top-of-the-line OS, but the mid-range specs can frustrate at times, and the display is a disappointment.
But perhaps most importantly, the lack of any other remarkable attributes suggests that you should only be buying this if you’re dying for the ability to dock to a keyboard; there are comparable machines out there (some of which are cheaper!) whose only difference is that their displays are permanently attached to their keyboards. So if the whole transforming feature isn’t something that’s all that important to you, then you can probably pass on this.
- Tablet has nice build
- Solid battery life
- Windows 10 is great (but Asus’s preloaded software is not)
- Performance lags occasionally
- Below average display
- Keyboard can be frustrating to type on
