Asus has been in the tablet and keyboard dock game for a while now. After several generations of Android based tablet and keyboard dock combinations, the T100 brings the interface of Windows 8 to its logical home on a hybrid tablet or notebook.
The company at media launch introduced the ASUS Transformer Book T100 and said that it is specifically designed for the Nigerian market.
The Transformer Book T100 is a 10 inch Windows tablet with a detachable keyboard which lets the user use the system like a laptop.
At 1.07kg (with keyboard), it is one of the lightest 10-inch hybrids available today. It runs the latest Intel Atom ‘Bay Trail’ quad-core processor and the screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels with excellent viewing angles and great touch response.
Around the sides of the tablet you will find a micro USB port, micro HDMI port, micro SD card slot, headset jack, power, volume and Start buttons.
The 1.2 MP Webcam lives above the display. The Transformer Book comes with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB flash storage and micro SD slot that accepts 64GB cards. Battery life is much better and in a rundown test it lasted 11 hours and 9 minutes.
The Transformer Book T100 is already on sale in the US, where it costs $349 (about £217), and also offers better value than most of the competitors in the market. It is one of the most significant products of the year.
