It’s powered by an Intel Atom Z3775 Bay Trail processor, features a 1366 x 768 pixel display, up to 64GB of built-in solid state storage, and some models have an extra 500GB hard drive in the keyboard dock.

Do the Asus t200ta 64gb model have necessary connectors in the dock for adding a HDD or SSD?
Yes, from what I’ve been reading, all versions of the T200ta have the ability to add hard drive storage.
Is there anything actually better than the current T100?
design, full size keyboard, second usb port, 2.5″ hdd bracket, ethernet port, seperate charger (can also still charge via usb though) and a second camera at the back
How is design an upgrade? Some also like the smaller form.
Tangible upgrades then are second usb port, ethernet port, and probably faster charging. I was hoping for more in their second attempt.
The T100 also had the option of a 500gb drive in the keyboard – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJlxH_OYAdo
Can the T200 really be charged via the USB port also…?
According to https://www.tlbhd.com/asus-transformer-book-t200ta-review-18720/ it can not.
1366 x 768 at 11.6″ is a good size for using non-metro desktop Windows in touch-screen mode without having to endure haphazard Windows scaling, and many perceive little probem with sharpness at this size. I think it’s a good match.
Most of the manufactures are moving away from 1366 x 768 pixel displays and moving on to full HD so I don’t understand ASUS sticking to this resolution being as advanced as they appear to be.
Yes, 1366×768 is a total fail these days….even my 2013 Nexus 7 is full HD. I have an old 11.6 inch laptop with this resolution and it sucks, many dialog boxes and such are too big to fit vertically and have to scroll.
No they’re not. The majority of budget laptops (which this is) have this resolution.
the thing is that at 11.6 inch, using the desktop at full hd with touch is almost imposible (everythinig is too small, and windows’ scaling is just bad..) and since this is usable as a tablet i think they chose for a lower res because its more usable in a touch/tablet config.. and it saves them money so they can keep it sub 400€
