ASUS announces the arrival of the Transformer Book T100, a 10.1-inch ultraportable laptop with an Intel Atom ‘Bay Trail’ quad-core processor and a detachable HD display that can be used as a standalone Windows 8.1 tablet. With a slim design and durable finish, Transformer Book is not only one of the lightest laptops currently available at just 1.07kg, but also one of the lightest 10-inch tablets around, at 550g.
High-performance laptop and lightweight tablet combined
ASUS Transformer Book T100 is an extremely compact ultraportable for people who want the productivity features of a laptop with the easy portability of a tablet — and the flexibility to switch between the two in an instant.
Transformer Book features a new Intel Atom Z3740 quad-core processor for smooth multi-tasking performance and incredible energy efficiency, and lasts for up to 11 hours on battery power. The lightweight keyboard dock features precision-engineered keys designed for comfortable extended use, plus a multi-touch touchpad with full Windows 8.1 gesture support.
Just 10.5mm thin in tablet mode, Transformer Book’s 10.1-inch display has a crisp 1366 x 768 resolution and features IPS technology for wide 178-degree viewing angles with excellent daylight visibility. Capacitive multi-touch gives fine fingertip control in tablet mode, while exclusive ASUS ‘Reading Mode’ technology adjusts the display automatically to make the screen easier to read for long periods.
ASUS Instant On and SonicMaster Audio technology
Transformer Book also features ASUS Instant On technology for the kind of instant response that people have come to expect from tablets. Transformer Book wakes from standby in an instant and lasts for up to 14 days in standby mode.
ASUS SonicMaster audio technology gives true-to-life sound, and Transformer Book also features USB 3.0, 802.11a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Transformer Book is also bundled with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 with full versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.
