Asus announced it’s new 2-in-1 Windows 10 device, Transformer Book T100HA, yesterday at Taipei Computex. Transformer Book T100HA will be a budget-friendly device with solid specifications.
Computex Taipei is currently taking place in Taiwan, and manufacturers from all over the world are presenting their new products. As a powerful domestic company, Asus was expected to deliver something worthy, and it seems they did just that with announcing the new Asus Transformer Book T100HA. This device is the successor of company’s budget 2-in-1 Windows 8 device, T100.
Asus Transformer Book T100HA will come with preloaded Windows 10 and feature thinner USB Type-C port, which is also featured in Apple’s MacBook devices. The device will feature a 10.1 inches screen at 1280 x 800 resolution, will weight 580g and will be 8.45mm thick. As for the interior of the device, it will run a quad-core Intel Atom Cherry Trail X5 processor and 4GB of RAM. The company is claiming that battery life of Transformer Book T100HA will be around 14 hours. Also, the keyboard is pretty solid, and the trackpad is better than on most other devices in this price range and class.
Asus hasn’t revealed how much the T100HA will cost, but it is reasonably to expect it to be in the same range as its predecessor, which means around $350. The device is pretty solid, and would be a good deal for that price, it’s only bigger deal-breaker could be the lower screen resolution, but other specifications are just fine. So if you’re looking for a decent 2-in-1 device that doesn’t cost much, Asus Transformer Book T100HA could be your choice.
The company still hasn’t revealed an exact release date, but only stated that the device will come somewhere in the third-quarter of the year, which is logical, because Windows 10 has yet to be released to manufacturers this summer. Also, we should expect to see more and more light, USB Type-C equipped Windows 10 devices after the release of Windows 10.
