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

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.

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
  • Cheap build materials
  • We wish the screen were brighter
