1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy!

Pros: None

Cons: Tablet won't start even factory reset doesn't work. This is a piece of poop and I wouldn't recommend this to even an enemy. Asus supposedly has fix for this but that requires a device be able to turn on to install the fix.

Other Thoughts: Simply do not buy this product.

5 out of 5 eggsWife is loving it

Pros: Battery life is great.
Compact computer/tablet with full Windows OS.
Comes with Office 2013
Micro SD card reader
USB 3.0 port on keyboard.

Cons: Windows 8, even though it comes with 8.1
glossy back - fingerprint magnet
64 GB is not really enough - but there is a micro SD card slot

Other Thoughts: I got this to be able to get some work done while on a trip.
Plays some games decently: Torchlight 2 on Steam is what I have saved. Played on the plane but the tiny space is really cramped.
My wife is using this daily to play FB Flash games so there's not much use I have on it recently.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Manageable size, good battery life, full Windows 8.1 (not RT), Office included, USB charging (see cons), full USB 3.0 port on dock, micro HDMI output, MicroSD expansion.

There is a lot to like about this tablet and it brings a lot to the table for its price point; to find anything with comparable features and hardware you would be spending closer to $1,000. I appreciate the Transformer book for its ability to function as both a tablet and netbook; the dock is very easy to attach/detach. The ability to run regular desktop Windows applications is a big plus for me over an Android or iOS device. The onscreen keyboard configuration is well laid out, making typing moderately easy without the keyboard dock; the letter keys are split in half along the two sides of the screen so you can use your thumbs to type while holding the device.

Cons: Charging from USB very slow, USB 3.0 port doesn't always accept older USB plugs, graphics chipset not very beefy, low upgradability, 32-bit Windows, all plastic construction.

While 2 GB of RAM is sufficient for Windows 8.1 and many common applications, it's not very much for a machine with a quad-core processor and integrated graphics. Everything is soldered to the motherboard, so the only expansion options you have are up to 128 GB of additional storage via the MicroSD slot. In what must have been a cost-saving measure, the device uses a 32-bit EFI even though the Z3740 is a 64-bit chip, so you can't install 64-bit Windows or apps for better performance. In case you were wondering, the dock that comes with this model does not have a drive bay--the 32 GB model comes with an extra 500 GB drive in the dock. So, if you need more stoarage beyond the 64 GB onboard SSD and 128 GB of MicroSD, you will have to use the USB port in the dock to attach more storage.

You may be disappointed in performance if you are a gamer, the generic Intel HD Graphics chipset doesn't really impress and chokes on pretty much everything but casual gaming. Even older titles like Day of Defeat will be running at 40-50 fps, though newer games like Team Fortress 2 and Skyrim can run around 30 fps if you turn down the detail enough. I wouldn't recommend using this to play multiplayer FPS games, though it might suffice for light MMOs, RTS, classic and casual gaming.

The dock hinge is not very reliable past 90 degrees, or if you pick up the tablet and the dock is suspended by the tablet. When that happens, you may lose connection with the dock, which is especially annoying if you have anything connected to the dock's USB port, like a hard drive. If you don't really need the USB port, a Bluetooth keyboard might be a better way to go, though you will lose a little battery life with Bluetooth on.

Other Thoughts: Even though you can charge the device from any USB port, charging is slow and the battery will continue to discharge if the device is in use while charging. Your choice of USB port or power supply can help the charge speed, but even the factory supplied charger doesn't provide enough power to charge the battery and run the device, and the battery will continue to discharge slowly. Even though the charger is rated at 10 W, the device will only draw a maximum of 5 W. However, once charged the battery life is pretty decent and you can expect to get a good 8 hours of use from it if you turn off Bluetooth; 10 might be possible if you turned the display brightness down enough.

For daily use, I would recommend a cover and screen protector as everything is plastic and thus prone to scratching. Make sure you get a cover that will hold the keyboard dock, if you want to use this device to get any work done bringing the dock along is a must as the on-screen keyboard will hamper your typing speed.

This device will probably be sufficient for the majority of users, though if you are a gamer or tech addict you will probably end up wanting a more powerful tablet.

5 out of 5 eggsLeave it alone for a day.

Pros: I like the portability of office for school, watching movies, basically antyhing you would do on your PC just smaller.
Perfect if you want to stay productive or entertained on the go. Battery life is solid, I got it at 40% and it lasted 6 hours.

Cons: It charges slow if you have it on. Probably have to keep it off if you want it within a few hours. 20-25%/ hr charge.

Other Thoughts: FIRST! Update through myasus and windows update. Remember the review title? LEAVE IT ALONE FOR A DAY. When I received the tablet it would not charge, the lights and windows notification that it was charging would come on but the battery would keep draining. I contacted support and had an RMA set up while I was at work ( i had left it plugged in at home) and lo and behold I was able to power it up and it began charging normally. Just a forewarning if you have this issue, leave it alone for at least 8-10 hours charging before you mess with it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I bought one of these for myself after getting one for my mom. We both wanted tablets that were basically a pc.
I use this more than my newly built gaming pc for everyday use like browsing the web, checking email, blah blah blah. You get the picture. Battery life is great, I charge about once a week with browsing every night online. You can download your steam and origin accounts to this thing and play older games fine. Newer less demanding games work fine as well. Plants vs Zombies using the touch screen, nice. You can also get bluestacks running to get emulated android apps running on this thing too. Includes Office Home and Student 2013 which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. OneNote is not a big deal, since you can download that for free from the app store. I personally like windows 8, touch screen makes it even better. Overall, this thing is just to convenient and useful. I feel like you really get your money's worth. Got mine for $350 on newegg and saw recently it was as low as $325. Another review said this is what the surface should have been, and I have to agree. The Surface is nicer all around, but factoring in price and what you get for your money, this Asus is sweet.

Cons: could use a little more RAM. App store not as robust as android or apple, but you can get bluestacks running on this. This only applies to my keyboard (mothers appears ok), but it seems to randomly undock from the tablet itself sometimes, so I have to give it a little extra push to lock in better. Charger gets warm. Finger prints everywhere Rear facing speakers. Wish it had a rear facing camera as well. In desktop mode, you will probably touch the wrong thing every once in a while, unless you have the smallest of fingers. I find a stylus is useful for the desktop mode.

Other Thoughts: Run all windows updates and asus bios updates when you open this thing. Also, you'll most likely want to spring for a micro sd card. You only have about 32 gigs left after all updates are complete. Micro HDMI cable is useful if you want to hook this up to your tv or a bigger monitor for using Office, or just to hook it up to your tv and stream things.

5 out of 5 eggsit's just plain useful

Pros: small, light, tablet and laptop, inexpensive. can run dual monitors. runs full windows, can even play some basic games well like AOEII

Cons: charging! the need for the use of the included charger and there is one that is marketed for this device for about $12 on another retailer are the only ones that will charge it while in use and with any speed as most chargers just don't work
Other minor gripes are the track pad, rear facing speakers

Other Thoughts: neutral comments and realizing what this product is a cheap dual purpose tablet
screen resolution is lower than other tablets, track pad is not so great, the tiny chicklet keys are tiny (but i still can type decent on it) the 2 gigs is understandable but it can impact performance, but your really pushing it outside its comfort range at that point anyway.

i would only suggest the 64 gm version not the one without the hdd as being light versatile.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: 1.) Price was great, got it on sale for $40 less as well
2.) Full Windows. I have been looking for a good tablet with full Windows as I refused to buy anything less.
3.) Free Office 2013!!!
4.) SSD is a nice feature.
5.) Design, look, and feel of the actual device. Sleek, smooth, and just looks cool.

Cons: Not much to say here, so far I love it. Could use a little more RAM, however I realize as a tablet, 2 GB is probably enough as I won't be gaming too hard on it. Another con might be the need for dedicated graphics memory/card, however, the things I'm running on it seem to run fine without this.

Other Thoughts: Great product, would definitely buy again if I went back in time. This is my first ASUS product, but so far loving it and may add additional ASUS products to my repertoire in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsMuch better than I expected

Pros: Stunningly fast for running on an Atom processor. Everything opens and runs instantly, and restoration from sleep is no different. 10.1" is the perfect tablet size. The addition of the keyboard is a good productivity boost. Sale price of $350.

Battery life is incredible. The tech specs say ~11 hours, but I'm seeing about 10%/hr being used.

This also comes with Microsoft Office 2013. Not sure if it's a one-year license or not.

Cons: Running updates takes a while, and so does rebooting. Fortunately, this isn't something you have to do often.

Other Thoughts: Windows 8, while not suitable for a productive desktop replacement, is nice on a tablet. Having MS Office on here and a keyboard makes this useful for an office environment if you need to quickly manage some documents and you're away from your desk.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall good

Pros: 1. The price
3. Full Windows 8.1 (not RT [this is a huge deal])
2. Comes with Office! (also a big deal)
2. Small
3. USB and Micro SD
4. Camera
5. Speakers can be loud
6. Set-up is easy. It is virtually a plug-and-play

Cons: 1. Not enough RAM (needs atleast 1gb more to completely win me over)

2. Not a whole lot of built in storage, but the Micro SD slot helps.

3. You might have to update the BIOS when you get it in order to get the most out of your battery (an email to ASUS will tell you what you need to download for that)

4. The charging wire is too short. Your initial charge will most likely be on your floor. Thankfully, wires are cheap. Although ASUS should provide a long enough wire initially.

Other Thoughts: Managing multiple tabs is slow. 1gb of RAM is really not enough to let this be considered a laptop. There should be 2 models of the t100: one with 1gb and 2gb.

I had to return my first one due to the fact that it would not charge. That lead to a long 20 day wait and an annoying transfer of extended warranty; however, it was worth it.

ASUS could toss in a couple cheap items to make this purchase phenomenal; such as a tablet pen, a screen protector, a longer wire, and a 2gb option (had to toss that in there).

Overall, I am happy with my purchase. There are a lot of case options available for this product. I bought a $20 leather case for it that looks nice, but makes it over 2 times thicker. I really like the keyboard and the 3.0 USB. I would like if the feel of the keyboard. Also the joint feels like solid aluminum, which gives it a premium feel.

Would buy it again. I love having the keyboard to type stuff up and work with office and then having the ability to detach it and read documents in portrait mode.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

It's good to know that you are happy with the Transformer Book overall. I apologize that you have to return the first unit due to some issues. All ASUS products undergo intensive quality control testing and inspection, these are isolated cases. I certainly understand your disappointment with some features of the unit. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140707643 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel
