Unboxing – Asus Transformer Book T100

So I got done with unboxing the Sony Vaio Tap 11 and the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop. Next up is the Asus Transformer Book T100.

General Impression

The Asus Transformer Book T100 feels like a necessary maturing of the budget Windows tablet.

It’s practical, pretty powerful, has a half-decent screen and its flexible design mitigates the lack of games and apps designed for Windows tablets – compared to Android and iOS tablets.

It’s not perfect – there are clear generational improvements to be made in the screen tech in particular, and the trackpad needs a tweak – but this is tablet isn’t half bad.

I liked the Asus Vivo RT tablet when I reviewed that and this is very similar. Not too bad so far.

    I bought this for my wife, as a replacement to her old HP Netbook. This is so much better, and batterylife makes it as good as her old iPad. Just don’t let the kids loose with games, it needs the power cable then 🙂
