Asus Transformer Book T100 Review
Battery


Some people might think poorly about the tablet’s processor, but it doesn’t mess around when it comes to battery life. Thanks to the battery optimizations of its processor, its’ able to impress us with its near 10 hours of heavy usage. It’s not the single day tally of other ARM based tablets, but we can’t forget that this is a full blown Windows 8.1 tablet we’re dealing with. That tally is actually above average over other laptops and ultrabooks.

Conclusion


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 something that normally requires an additional cost. Indeed, it’s not the most specs heavy, high performing, or features rich tablet on the scene, but there’s something so comforting about this one – more so knowing it’s running a desktop grade operating system. At its core, you get the best of both worlds with this particular tablet, mainly because it’s one part tablet, one part netbook. Best of all, you’re not going to be spending a fortune on picking it up!
