The Asus Transformer Book T100 line of 2-in-1 laptops have been pretty popular over the last few years, thanks to a combination of compact size, decent performance, and a great price. Originally priced at $399 and up, these days you can often find this 10 inch tablet with a detachable keyboard dock for around half that price.
Now Asus is getting ready to launch the biggest update to its Transformer Book T100 since it launched nearly two years ago.
In June the company unveiled the Transformer Book T100HA with an Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor and a USB Type-C port. Now it’s up for pre-order in France for €299 ($340)and up. It’ll probably be cheaper when it comes to the US, where there’s no VAT attached to prices.
The Transformer Book T100HA has a 10 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 Cherry Trail processor, a micro USB port, a full-sized USB 2.0 port, and a USB-C port, along with a micro HDMI port, stereo speakers, a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, a microSDXC card reader, and a 30 Whr battery that Asus says should provide up to 12 hours of battery life during video playback.
The 2-in-1 tablet supports 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
The tablet measures 10.4″ x 6.9″ x 0.3″ and weighs about 1.3 pounds, while the keyboard dock is 10.4″ x 6.8″ x 0.4″ and weighs 1 pound.
