ASUS Transformer Book T100 review: a Windows tablet with netbook roots

Summary

With cheap build quality and a mediocre display, the T100 is far from perfect. But thanks to some solid performance and generous pricing, it still offers incredible bang for your buck.

from $164.9+
Pros
  • Solid performance, long battery life
  • Runs traditional desktop apps
  • Screen offers good viewing angles
  • Inexpensive, includes keyboard dock
  • Almost no bloatware
Cons
  • Cramped, flimsy keyboard

  • We wish the screen were brighter
ASUS Transformer Book T100 review: a Windows tablet with netbook roots

We generally don't have time to review lower-end products, but sometimes we see something at such an aggressive price we just have to take it for a spin. That pretty much describes our feelings about the ASUS Transformer Book T100, a 10-inch Windows tablet that comes with a keyboard dock in the box -- all for just $349. Incidentally, too, this is the first product we're testing with Intel's new quad-core Bay Trail-series Atom processor, which can run full Windows while at the same time keep pace with low-power chips like the ones in the Surface 2 and Nokia Lumia 2520. So, is all of that enough to make it a good deal? And can you forgive ASUS for all the ways it cut corners? We think you might.
