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 HYBRID

 

Today we're going to review the much awaited Asus Transformer Book TX300. The one I'm playing with is a press-sample, but it should be very close to what's

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

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

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...

"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.
