The Asus Transformer Book T100 is a 2-in-1 tablet that comes with a keyboard dock that lets you use the device like a notebook. It runs Windows 8.1, has an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, and a 10 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel toucshcreen display.

It’s not the fastest tablet (or notebook) around, but it’s compact and offers decent performance and great battery life.

New models usually sell for between $300 and $400. Right now Newegg is offering a refurbished model for just $210 after rebate.

  1. At this price the refurbished T100 is worth ignoring the bother of MS-tax (sad) and replacing Windows with Linux (merely added effort).

    Any similarly well thought out device with user-replaceable SSD, swappable battery and, god forbid, with the buyer having actual options for the operating system would easily become a modern-day classic. Any hardware engineers and designers willing (and allowed) to take the challenge?

    Of course my little problem is living outside the US along with some 96% of the world population combined with the useless rebate thing and probable lack of shipping outside the US. But no worries, we’ll live.

    But if Liliputing has other “world” frequenters besides myself, maybe some day mention whether the listed vendors only target US clientele or if it’s genuine fabled “free trade”. 😉

    The HP 11 with Exynos is unfortunately a dead-end piece of hardware although still fine for the intended limited purposes.

    1. Have you seen Google’s Project Ara?

      But in general, manufacturers don’t want to create mobile devices with user-replaceable parts, and by and large, most customers don’t care. In most customers don’t even care if there is no SD card slot these days.

      Replaceable parts add overhead in a device where space is an extreme premium. When you’re trying to be the thinnest and lightest device on the market, you need every last millimeter of space, and adding removable covers, replaceable battery modules, etc. works against that.

  2. Is the ASUS T100 the only 10.1″ tablet that has a full notebook mode (ie. physcially attaches and has an adjustable angle)?

    1. No.

      The recently released Acer Aspire Switch 10 can do that. It also has Yoga features.

      1. If by Yoga-style features, you mean a 360 degree hinge… nope. But you can take off the tablet and flip it so it faces away from the keyboard.

        I’m in the process of reviewing one right now, and I like the design… but I’m underwhelmed by the battery life. The Asus T100 runs for 1.5x – 2x as long.

        1. I meant yoga features like tent and presentation mode.

          I’ve heard the same thing about the battery life but it also a slightly different processor and a screen with higher max brightness (350 nits compared to 220 nits if I heard right)

    2. The Dell Venue 11 pro with the optional mobile dock does as well – though it’s 10.8 inches.
