Asus Transformer Books T100TAM and T200TA reviews

 

Asus were among the very first to offer stand alone Windows tablets paired with matching docking stations with their Transformer Books. In the meantime, this has grown to become one of...

An 11.6 inch Transformer Book has been long awaited. Some of you complained about the fact that the T100 TA is actually too small to allow you to properly get things done and I’m inclined to agree. A 10 inch slate is properly sized for...

To small for me.

 

had to return it.

Light, sleek, and powerful

Biggest thing I didn't like was that it was way to small. I wanted something to replace my current laptop, but when I got it I found it was totally unusable as a natural laptop. It seemed like everything was made for a child, it was just to small and...

System didn't work out of the box

 

I own one of these already and i do like it, I got mine new for 100 less then i payed for this refurbished system but we wanted a 2nd one for my son's school work, we payed extra for it as we could not find one anyplace else.

the battery gets 12 hours of normal use, touch screen worked well in tablet mode

It was dead,had to charge it up for 2 hours before it would even get a screen , the WiFi adapter showed error Code 10, installed new drivers and old drives did not fix this problem , upgraded to windows 10 found driver .113 worked but it would not get...

Good Value

 

I would recommend this product for any general consumer. If you need a high powered device and are doing anything which requires high processing power I would recommend choosing a more expensive device. Very high value for the money though, I use this...

-Reasonably long battery life with frequent usage -Lightweight/easy to transport

-Screen smudges easily with touch screen use

save the money

Consumer review (newegg.com)

not linux-friendly

 

If you can stand Windows this might be a decent combo machine aside from the cons. If you want to run linux do some serious digging on the web first.

Clear bright screen. Decent keyboard. Snappy processor.

Touchpad click screams "cheap". UEFI firmware might be non-compliant. With tablet docked and upright, metal feet scratch tables. Tablet wobbly when docked. Proprietary drivers required for Broadcom wireless and bluetooth.

Great tablet/hybrid

 

Yes I will, and have recommended it to friends.

Small though a little heavy compared to other brands. Robust and fast enough.

My onlyreal problem is that the charge socket has become loose. To get the charge going I have to wiggle the cable until I get the sweet spot. I often have to insert the stylus through the stylus holder on the cover to keep the cable in place to keep...

paper weight, poor service

 

really great... for a month at a time

would not turn on after a month, took a couple of trys online for warranty claim before I gave up and waited on hold for ever to get it fixed, so excited! lasted less time this time, again multiple trys online for warranty yo no avail, called several...

Loving it

 

I may get one of these for myself, I'm really that impressed.

I'm very impressed with the performance of this little machine. The pc is fast and applications open with very little lag. It upgraded to Windows 10 without a flaw, everything works as it should. It comes with some great features such as Bluetooth,...

I don't have to many con's. The only draw back on this machine that I could find is the SSD drive size. It's a 64GB drive but only shows that the size is 52GB. This happens because Windows creates a hidden partition, so you can restore the machine....

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very impressive

 

To overcome the limits of the 64GB (C:\) SSD, I added a 256GB Class 10 microSDHC card to the tablet portion .. it runs fine. I did not experience any issue with the W8.1 to W10 upgrade ... but I have had several W10 related issues that are not unique...

metal body, clear screen, removable keyboard/HD dock

Although it has a 500GB HD (D:\) in the keyboard/dock, the tablet portion only has 64GB (C:\) which I assume is a fixed SSD.
