Review Asus Transformer Book TX300CA Convertible

 

Big screen tablet. Smartphones are growing so browsing and gaming becomes more pleasant. Tablets are growing so we can work more productively and performantly. Is Asus heading in the right direction?

High-grade aluminum stability, Concept with much memory space (HDD in dock), Mode: dock serves as energy filling station, Color-intensive IPS panel, Low system noise, Optically speaking nearly a real notebook, Good keyboard, Many connections incl....

High weight, USB ports too close to each other, Core i7 clearly below standard, Throttled HD 4000, Longer battery runtimes. We expect more of two batteries than 3:34 to 5:42 hours (WLAN browsing; notebook mode off/on)

ASUS Transformer Book TX300CA

Tablet and keyboard dock weigh 4.2 lbs., which is a bit heavy for a 13" Ultrabook. Battery life just OK

The Asus Transformer Book TX300 is the best Windows 8 transformer to date. Granted, at $1,499 for the high end model we tested, it should be great. The IPS display is simply stunning and the machine is quite fast. It has the excellent build quality and...

Asus Transformer Book TX300CA Review

 

The core strength of Windows 8 lies in its touch-driven Modern UI and the only way to experience it is on a Windows 8 tablet, which are quite rare in our market. Windows RT tablets are pretty pointless since you're restricted to Modern apps with no...
