ASUS Transformer T100

Rich Hein | Jan. 24, 2014
If the price of the Surface Pro and other similarly equipped tablets has been preventing you from buying a Windows 8 tablet then the recent update to the Intel Atom processor may be your cue to make your move.

The speakers, located on the back cover, are surprisingly loud but buzz when maxed out. That said, the volume at 75 percent is plenty loud and the sound it produces is clear and crisp.

No Bloatware
A welcomed surprise, the device comes without all the unnecessary bloatware you normally find when purchasing a new laptop these days. ASUS does include its Web storage application where it offers 1 terabyte of storage free for one year.

Final Thoughts on ASUS Transformer T100
If you've longed for full Internet access or Microsoft Office products on your tablet, but the prices have been keeping you away, this hybrid could be the answer you've been looking for. The overall performance is good and applications function smoothly, even with several apps open there is no stutter or delay.

For the budget-conscious techies, the Transformer Book is a viable option. Even with its flaws, the power, the price and the included keyboard make it a great value.
