The specs for the ASUS Transformer Book T100HA-C4-GR (ad) really make it seem more like a tablet than a laptop. The memory and storage space could be better, but this device nails the mobile aspect and it has a great battery.

Using the ASUS Transformer Book T100HA-C4-GR

At 0.72 inches thick and just 2.28 pounds, this is a thin and light device. It feels good in the hand, with a smooth top and bottom and nice edges. The device feels like it is very solid construction.

With Windows 10 coming preinstalled, you don’t need to worry about upgrading. I also found there was very little bloatware installed on the device and couldn’t find much that would need to be uninstalled. The device works pretty well, but that 4 GB RAM and 64 GB SSD does have limits.

Unplugging the tablet from the socket it pretty easy. The keyboard doesn’t work if not plugged in to the device. I like that the keyboard has function keys, which is something most users maybe don’t care about and they often get shoehorned in using a FN key that needs to be held down as other keys are pressed to use functions. The keyboard does feel a bit flimsy, but that is to be expected from a tablet keyboard.

Overall

The ASUS Transformer Book T100HA-C4-GR (ad) is a nice device that probably checks a lot of boxes for a lot of people. It’s a cheap 2-in-1 that is more like a tablet than a laptop and can be used as a tablet. It has a new processor that is pretty good, its light, thin and has an amazing battery. If you are shopping for this type of device on a shoestring budget, you might want to consider the ASUS Transformer Book. I could see this device being good for someone that works on-the-go and doesn’t need advanced functionality.
