The Asus Transformer Book T100 is a 10 inch Windows 8.1 tablet with an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, a keyboard dock that lets you use the machine as a laptop, long battery life, and decent performance.

With a list price of $350 and up, it’s also one of the most affordable devices of its type — if you can find a store that still has the T100 in stock. It was a hot seller around the holiday season and it’s much easier to find a 64GB model for $399 than a cheaper 32GB model at the moment.

Not only does Office Depot have the cheaper model in stock though… it’s offering it at a bit of a discount. You can pick one up for $340. Also — the 32GB model actually has a hidden 8GB of storage used for the recovery partition, which means the full 32GB is usable (not counting the space used up by the operating system).

  1. When does the upgraded version of this system come out? I want one with Android dual-boot, and a wacom digitizer if possible. I am considering getting a Microsoft Surface Pro if I don’t see anything interesting at MWC this month.

    1. Typo – It’s only about 8GB for the recovery partition and it’s a ROM… So, you can’t change it but means the 32GB doesn’t have to deal with that recovery partition but if you get the 64GB model then it’s included in the main drive and means that much less free space for you to use.

      Personally, I think they should just include a USB drive for the recovery and call it a day… at least until larger drive capacities become standard but it’ll also help protect against drive failures as you can always keep the USB drive in a safe place and even if they replace your device you could still restore your last backup…

      1. Ha. I’d bet good money it isn’t ROM. Nobody in their right mind does the full mask rom thing anymore outside super mass production like Nintendo Gameboy titles. Whether the write protect can be disabled without opening the thing up is of course another question. Bet knocking the right knock via ACPI or knowing the right magic in the pre boot environment would do it though. Preboot would be safer but preclude downloadable updates via Windows so it is pretty safe to guess which way Microsoft went.

        1. First, this is a Asus implementation of the Windows recovery… So MS had nothing to do with how this was arranged…

          Second, since it has been tried but no one can do anything but read from this separate recovery drive then as far as the users are concerned it’s a ROM!
