ASUS Launches Affordable Transformer Book T100 With Windows 8.1
The convertible laptop packs in an Intel Atom Bay Trail-T Z3740 quad-core processor and 10.1" IPS screen.
Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS has launched its Transformer Book T100 in India. This convertible laptop was announced back in May at Intel's Developer Forum 2013. To quote ASUS, "The Transformer Book T100 is an extremely compact ultraportable for people who want the productivity features of a laptop with the easy portability of a tablet — and the flexibility to switch between the two in an instant". We agree.
The device is powered by Intel Atom Bay Trail-T Z3740 quad-core processor clocked at 1.33 GHz. Its 10.1-inch IPS multi-touch screen has pixel dimensions of 1366x768. However, according to the press release, the product sports an "HD Glare" screen. If that's actually the case, the T100 should come with free Gunnar eyeware. We have a feeling that they meant to say, Glare-free. Other features include 7th gen Intel HD graphics, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB port, Micro-HDMI port, MicroSD card slot, 3.5mm headphone, USB 3.0 port, and 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.
The detachable keyboard accessory features a trackpad. The button layout is island type. The hybrid notebook weighs in at 1.07 Kgs (550 grams for tablet + 520 grams for dock). The ASUS Transformer Book T100 runs full-fledged Windows 8.1, which means you can run all your desktop apps without any issue. The T100 is priced at Rs 34,100, which seems like a good deal.
