Asus Transformer Book TX300

 

No one has yet come up with the perfect Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrid, despite dozens of attempts between late last year and now. The powerful Asus Transformer Book, however, comes pretty close, adding several premium features that are on my wish list.

The Asus Transformer Book TX300 is a rare hybrid with a Core i7 CPU, a high-res screen, and smart dual hard drives -- there's an SSD in the tablet half, and a larger hard drive in the keyboard base.

The system is awkwardly top-heavy, and you feel as if you're fighting the touch pad at every turn.

Asus adds a lot of what I've been looking for in a hybrid to the Transformer Book, but no one has yet really nailed the perfect laptop/tablet combo.

ASUS Transformer Book TX300 Review

 

The ASUS Transformer Book TX300 offers a premium design, a full HD detachable display and great battery life, but it's on the heavy side.

Handsome design; Gorgeous 1080p display; Solid performance; Long battery life

Heavy for 13-inch notebook; System heats up easily; Subpar webcam

ASUS Transformer Book review: meet ASUS' first detachable Ultrabook

 

More InfoASUS announces line of Transformer BooksASUS Transformer Book shows sudden sign of life: 13-inch Core i5 model coming to Japan this

Lovely 1080p IPS display ; Comfortable keyboard ; Fast boot-up, resume times ; Keyboard dock has a spare battery, hard drive

Heavy for a 13-inch touchscreen Ultrabook ; Launching with a year-old CPU

The Transformer Book was an innovative concept when it was first announced a year ago. But now that it's finally shipping with old components, you're better off waiting for a possible Haswell refresh.

Asus Transformer Book TX300 review – the HYBRID

 

The Asus Transformer Book TX300 is a versatile machine, capable to go as a Windows 8 tablet or as a regular laptop. It meets most of my expectations, although there are still things to brush for the next generation. But if you're after a hybrid, you...

IPS screen, powerful hardware, good build quality, good keyboard and trackpad, fair battery life

some light bleeding on the screen, the hinge does not grip the tablet properly, rather large and heavy for a 13 incher

Anyway, as we draw closer to the end of our review, I believe some of you might find the Transformer Book as the next step for laptops. You get all the power and the features of a laptop, but you also get to detach the, let’s call it “screen”, and end...

Asus Transformer Book TX300 review

 

A well-built machine with bags of power and a unique twist

Great keyboard ; Easy to switch between laptop and tablet ; Decent performance ; Good battery life

Last-gen processor ; Very heavy ; Slightly ungainly tablet ; Buggy performance

The Asus Transformer Book TX300 is a great laptop, with a great trick up its sleeve. While it's unlikely to give the iPad a run for its money as a tablet, it's still a useful device with real-world benefits, and, most importantly, this doesn't hamper...

Is the Asus Transformer Book the most innovative laptop-tablet hybrid yet?

Asus Transformer Book TX300

 

Fully detachable screen, Good build quality, Fast 128GB SSD, Dual storage with 500GB HDD

Expensive, Poor touch pad, Only two speakers, Speakers not in the best position for landscape use

The Transformer Book TX300 is essentially two products in one, so starting with the tablet you get a device with a large 13.3" Full HD (1920 x 1080) well performing screen, albeit not in the same class as Apple's Retina displays. There's also better...

"You can get so much better for the money."

 

This isn't a total don't buy. As far as the new hybrid lap-tabs out there, I hear that this one is one of the best. The Transformer has it's perks just as much as it has it's flaws, as does anything.

Very high resolution and full HD, very nice looking, The core i7 gets a lot done, large amount of storage, and excellent screen/tablet.

No optical drive, only 4 GB ram, no HDMI (only micro HDMI), below average battery life, and, despite having the i7 processor, some programs don't function as well as they do on other lap-tabs of this type.
