ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C Review: Why Android Laptops Stink

 

$299 buys you the ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C with a nice screen, good audio a decent keyboard dock but it's a better Android tablet than a notebook.

Runs Android 4.4 KitKat with the latest apps ; Good touch screen ; Excellent audio quality for a small device ; Good performance for a $299 tablet

Android is terrible for laptops (no real multitasking) ; Meager 1280x800 screen resolution ; Cramped keyboard ; Bad performance for a $299 laptop

There are two different ways to look at the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C. You can see this device as an Android tablet that comes with a detachable keyboard or you can see it as an Android notebook with a detachable tablet. The TF103C works very well as...

Asus Transformer Pad TF103C review: This hybrid is better for fun than work

 

This 10.1-inch tablet delivers plenty of bang for the buck, but it's not a great productivity tool.

Solid build quality ; Good price-to-performance ratio ; Very good keyboard dock

Short battery life ; Relatively weak as a productivity tool

The Transformer Pad TF103C is a solid tablet for entertainment and other casual uses, but it won't supplant a true notebook if you're looking to boost your productivity while you're on the road.

Asus Transformer Pad TF103C with keyboard bundle

 

The latest release in the Transformer line of Asus tablets is a simple hybrid for simple needs. The TF103 delivers a full slate of features and a sturdy -- albeit outdated -- design with an optional keyboard. And in a big improvement over the previous...

The Asus Transformer TF103 ships with a keyboard dock, Asus' slick, feature-filled Zen user interface, and useful preloaded apps. Its $299 starting price is low for a tablet hybrid.

The plastic construction of the keyboard feels cheap, the trackpad response sometimes lags, and its thick-bezeled, girthy design is outdated.

With Asus' slickest user interface yet, included keyboard, and a competitive starting price, the small but chunky Transformer Pad TF103 is an attractively affordable tablet hybrid.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C Review

 

The Android-powered ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C sports a vivid screen, excellent audio and a keyboard dock for $299.

Bright touch screen; Excellent audio quality; Keyboard included; Runs latest Android software; Good performance for the price

Cramped keyboard; Stiff touchpad; Poor camera quality

The Android-powered ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C sports a vivid screen, excellent audio and a keyboard dock for $299.

Asus Transformer Pad TF103C

 

With an included keyboard dock, the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C will appeal to productivity hounds on a budget, but it's an otherwise unimpressive Android tablet.

Affordable. Includes keyboard dock. Reasonable performance for the price

Thick, uninspired design. Poor cameras

Taken in isolation, the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C is a nice entry-level tablet. It's not appreciably better than most of the competition, but it represents a good value, since $299 (16GB) gets you the 10.1-inch tablet and the signature transformer...

ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C review: a speedy budget tablet with a few sacrifices

 

When it comes to ASUS, buying a full-size Android tablet has usually meant venturing past the $300 mark; even the Transformer Book T100 set you back $349

Great value ; Fast for the money ; Comfortable typing experience

Terrible cameras ; Low-resolution display ; So-so battery life

ASUS' entry-level Transformer Pad sacrifices quite a bit in the name of price, but you still get a speedy, well-designed Android tablet that can serve as a basic laptop in a pinch.

Asus Transformer Pad TF103 review

 

Transformers, tablets in disguise

Reasonable price ; Versatile keyboard option ; Good screen

Occasional slowdowns ; Quite heavy ; Poor cameras ; Jumpy web browsing

Although it's far from a powerhouse, I was extremely pleased with the TF103. Its failings are minor, while its best points are striking: a big, bright screen, decent sound and the versatility offered by the removable keyboard, all for a very reasonable...

Asus Transformer Pad TF103 review

 

A laptop and a tablet for just £239? Is it too good to be true? Find out in our Asus Transformer Pad TF103 review

Very cheap ; Impressive screen ; Decent docking mechanism

Feels very cheap ; Awful keyboard ; Terrible cameras

The Asus Transformer Pad TF103 does the basics well enough, but there are much better hybrids around. It’s fair for the price, but we demand more from our gadgets.

Asus Transformer Pad TF103C reviewed: handy for a touch of work on the move

 

Asus has been producing its Transformer Android hybrids for years, but the TF103C breaks new ground for the company. While previous efforts have been pitched at the premium end of the market – to compete with the likes of Apple's iPad Air and the Sony...

Until now, if we’d been asked to recommend a budget tablet, we’d have plumped for the Nexus 7 without a second thought, but the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C has given us another option. For fans of large-screened tablets who might want to do a touch of...
