Product information

Asus' Transformer Book T100TA combines an ultra portable laptop with a 10.1-inch tablet to help you take computing on the go, with the keyboard ready for when you need it. The 2-in-1 ultraportable design is complemented by a 9 hour battery life and powerful mobile processing from Intel.

Quad-core processing
The Transformer Book T100TA is powered by Intel's Bay Trail Atom processor. Designed for mobile computing, the Bay Trail range of processors deliver fast processing power combined with long battery life, so you can finally have an affordable Windows experience on the go without having to charge every couple of hours.

More Room for Files
With 32GB of storage built into the tablet in the T100TA, you'll be able to keep your most important files close. If you need more room, then you can save an additional 500GB worth of data on the hard drive in the keyboard dock, more than enough to ensure you're never missing an important document.

Elegant design
The tablet section of the Transformer Book T100TA slots into the keyboard dock and locks in with a simple slide mechanic to hold it to secure. With tablet and dock together, the Transformer Book T100TA measures just 13.1mm thick, ensuring that it'll slip discreetly into a bag or sleeve when travelling.

Windows 8.1 & Microsoft Office
The Transformer Book T100TA comes complete with the latest version of Windows: Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 introduces a number of features to make your computer easier to use, including the return of the start menu seen in older version of Windows. This convertible also features the full Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Student package. Office Home & Student gives you the tools you need for homework, letter writing and managing household tasks. It includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

Great visuals, fantastic sound
The multi-touch IPS display will help you navigate your convertible, whether in tablet or laptop mode, with Windows 8.1 having designed with touch in mind. The bright HD screen is great for watching movies on, and with a new reading mode, you can reduce eye strain when enjoying eBooks, text heavy webpages and documents. Asus' SonicMaster technology perfectly complements the screen for movies, delivering lifelike audio.

Q & As

Asus Transformer Book T100TA Convertible Tablet Laptop, Intel Atom, 2GB RAM, 500GB+ 32GB eMMC, Windows 8.1 & Microsoft Office 2013, 10.1" Touch Screen 4.4 5 7 7
Generally good product but a bit restrictive for using Microsoft Word The laptop is very compact and great for travelling, the 10.1" screen has a good resolution & the 16:9 ratio is good for films/video. For me the biggest disadvantage of the screen size and ratio is when I'm trying to use it to produce a Word document, which I find quite an irritation as that was one of the main reasons for purchasing the this laptop (a tablet to read documents on the train and the laptop mode to modify them). This is primarily down to the 16:9 widescreen ratio as when you utilise the whole width of the screen, you are very limited in viewing the vertical aspect, especially when the toolbar is open. This also applies for viewing webpages (I feel that the iPad screen ratio is definitely more user friendly from this aspect), but for PowerPoint it's less of an issue because of the layout of the screen. Unfortunately you can't test this before you buy the laptop as the Office package isn't activated in store on the demonstration models. I feel it should be to allow the potential purchaser an opportunity to test this aspect of usage. If you are planning to use the Office package a reasonable amount of then I would recommend purchasing the bigger brother (T200) now that has been released as the 11.6" screen will be more user friendly for Word documents etc and it's still compact enough to carry around easily. Both come with Windows 8.1 which I found easy to get used to (going from Vista) but because it's Windows rather than Android based the range of Apps available is much more restricted especially for niche markets however the benefits of a full having a full Windows based machine for what I wanted it for does outweigh this irritation. On the whole this is a good machine depending what you are going to use it for, but for my needs, as a replacement for a "work" laptop, a bigger screen would have made it much more practical to use. The two year warrantee, price matching and after sales reputation made John Lewis the obvious choice. 09 October 2014
Little Gem Bought identical one without the 500gb Hard Drive but immediately swopped it. No problem doing this with John Lewis as you would expect. 15 July 2014
Fantastic cross breed of tablet and laptop I have had this for a week now and cannot find a genuine fault worth highlighting against it. I had the Surface 2 before this and this tablet is far better, especially with Windows 8.1 rather than RT. Its quick, lightweight, has excellent battery life and despite some comments about the keyboard having the keys too close together I don't find this is an issue at all. At the price I paid this is an absolute steel, especially when it come pre installed with Office 2013. If you want a tablet come laptop and don't want to spend a fortune this is the ideal one to buy! 19 June 2014
Excellent piece of kit - the post-PC PC Having used a conventional desktop and laptop for many years, I have been wondering whether to enter the tablet frenzy. Well, with this little beauty I can have it all! It's very workable as a tablet, the Win 8.1 interface works well on the touchscreen. It can go instantly into desktop mode (workable with fingers only if necessary). And clip on the keyboard and it becomes an instant small and cool 'netbook' - but there's a 500MB HD in there too. It has MS Office built in and included in the price. Adding the 64GB micro SD card is very useful. My only slight reservation is that the track pad is a bit plasticy. I even bought a cover for the 'tablet' which will (just) allow the keyboard to clip on without removing it. A great purchase, so far at least. 10 June 2014
Excellent tablet laptop combination I’ve had this little beauty for a couple of months now I give this a 4 out of 5 (only drops down from 5 out of 5 due to running windows 8.1). I have tried to like windows 8.1 but am thankful it now has an option to choose the ‘desktop’. It did take a little while to set it up as I wanted it but that’s something I’ve found with every laptop I’ve ever bought. I have found this to be a very useful little machine, especially as it has word & excel included as standard. I originally thought I would only use this for the documents option however over the last month I find I’m using this more and more as both a tablet & mini laptop. My larger laptop has been relegated to the cupboard as this is much lighter and more convenient to use (both at home & out and about). There can be some screen reflection when sunny but I have never had a time when I couldn’t see the screen through this. It can take a lot of use (I’ve found about 8 hours of web searching, document writing & some You Tube) before the battery gets to a level you have to recharge. The best thing about this however is the keyboard option. This is very quick and easy to use (I’ve got small hands so people with big ones may find it a bit more awkward) and is VERY responsive. This is a bit heavier than other tablet/keyboard combinations but I’ve found it is better as this has a button which links the two items together very well and only delinks when you actually press the button, not when you move it around on your lap! I would recommend this to students, business people and travellers who need/want word and excel and want the option of carrying around a tablet & mini laptop. 22 May 2014
Absolutely brilliant! I am seriously surprised and delighted with this Asus Transformer. I needed a laptop but wanted a tablet so this purchase felt like a compromise but it is far from that. The quality of the tablet/laptop is really good and Windows 8.1 (very easy to install and get used to) is great fun. This is such an excellent value for money product that as yet I can't fault it. A very happy customer. 20 May 2014
heavy and slow but... This particular model is smart looking and packed with what appeared to be good package which made it attractive when compared to other windows tablet. It was not as easy to set up as expected and ended up having to take it to John Lewis for help. received an excellent level of help. I am having some issues such as speed or rather lack of. at times it is very slow, wont connect to internet, becomes unresponsive. at times it does operate at reasonable speed. i have only had it for a month but finding lack of speed rather annoying. The screen is crisp and relatively quite good outdoors. There is reflection but you can still see the screen unlike my Acer. The sound is also surprisingly good. Due to the curved edges of the tablet it makes it difficult to use the controls on the sides. The volume control bar to the side is cliky and annoying and difficult to use, tend to use the screen for volume control. It is fast when switching on but then becomes slow when just surfing the net. when battery totally flat it will not switch on when on charge and it does take some hours to charge enough to be switched on whilst charging from the mains. The key board was one reason for choosing this item but I must say that due to the combined weight and that cannot angle the screen properly (design fault) I have not used it but appears to work well when I tried it. The tablet is easier to hold in a sleeve /case. Had to get one that allows me rest on my lap as the tablet is too heavy when holding for longer than a few moments. The idea of a transformer is good but if I had a choice I think I would invest in a laptop and a tablet both of which would be lighter than this particular model. Due to the slow response time and its weight I am looking at purchasing a tablet that I can carry with me without being weighed down. 22 April 2014
