1 out of 5 eggsif you like troubleshooting, buy this!

Pros: It's light
Comes with a Keyboard
Priced ok.

Cons: Problems Charging
Problems Updating
Problems Crashing

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if it's a Windows problem or a ASUS problem. They are both blaming each other. I have 60 of these for the school I work for. Unfortunately neither ASUS nor Microsoft can offer any solutions.

2 out of 5 eggsA mixed bag

Pros: Seem to be a surprisingly capable Win 8.1 pad/mini laptop. Very good battery life. Good screen

Cons: Some strange solutions for the pad - lack of back camera. I guess it's a windows thing. Has an USB 3.0 port but on the keypad.

The major complain is the built quality. I had a number of Asus products over the years, but this one has by far the poorest design/built. Here a some examples:
When attached, to the keyboard part, the connector seems to be loose and wobbles notably;
Power button on top got stuck (!!!! like it's 90's !!!!) and I had to tap around it to get it out.

Other Thoughts: Although it's great for watching movies and doing some light editing, I don't think that this thing will last long... also, the panels of win 8 is a mixed blessing. Every other application I use will jump to the regular desktop version and becomes barely usable in the touch screen mode.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS T100TA

Pros: I bought this notbook because I needed a light travel computer for mostly trip report and the occassional touch up of office products. It came with MS Office student version. It worked like a champ for just over a year and then one weekend after cahrging it up for my trip when I got to the hotel it did not startup at all. Only had a red light when I plugged it in. When I returned from the trip I attempted to use ASUS website to get if fixed but thier site did not work properly or was really confusing because nothing seemed to work. I ended up callig and only waitng a few minutes when I was greated by an ASUS person. We quicckly rechecked things I already checked and determined it was the logic board or the flashdrive had crashed. He told me the system was under warranty and explained what I had to do and I sent it that afternoon overnight to ASUS. A week later I got back my notebook/tablet working fine. I had to re-install the office and the few file on it were lost forever but that did not bother. I'm surprised I hear so man compaints with ASUS. I normally buy only their products for hardware, i.,e., MB, graphic cards, etc and have never had an issue with ASUS products. I have had no less than 5 of ther topline motherboards over the last ten years. This is the first time I had to ever contact ASUS over any product I have had from them and while the website needs cleaning I had no issues with tech support or the time it took to fix the computer. I normally don't place review but this one was warranted because of the great service I did revceive from ASUS. I will also be a buyer of ASUS products and hope I never experience some people put on this site about ASUS.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: While the T100TA is a fairly inexpensive notebook/tablet I believe it serves and fulfills my needs.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Asus Product, Terrible Asus Customer Servive

Pros: Not hard to find

Cons: Last August I purchased the Asus T100TA for my son to use at school. Within 2 weeks the screen got about a quarter inch crack in the upper left corner of the pad/monitor. This happened while the laptop was inside a well padded pc computer case. After using the laptop for sometime my son noticed the device was losing power while plugged in with the Asus AC adapter. I did some research on the web and found this was a common problem with this model and was due to an inadequate chipset in some of these models. I opened up an RMA on Feb. 24th, 2015 and was sent a fedex label to send the laptop in for repairs. I did tell the ASUS representative about the tiny crack when he asked me. Now I am receiving a bill for $204 to fix the crack and was told that they would not replace the chipset until I paid for repairs to the crack. I was also told the crack I mentioned to the asus rep before receiving the RAM label had voided my warranty and the lap top was being returned unrepaired. Then I was told the crack was 4 inches long and was being returned as is. The laptop was not like this when sent in. Asus did not provide any packaging for me to return the item, which I find very disconcerting at this point. The laptop was packaged in 4 inches of bubble wrap and was then placed in a cardboard box. I was also told yesterday by Dwayne, that I could not speak to a manager concerning this issue and that I needed to disputed this $204 invoice before I could get any further assistance with this issue. At this point I fell Asus is just grasping for any reason not to repair a faulty laptop that they sold knowing it had battery drain issues. Apparently this problem has existed with this model for at least two years. This is the first Asus product I have ever purchased and was under the impression Asus was one of the leading companies in the technological industry. I am not finding this to be the case..I have filed a complaint with the BBB in Fremont, CA and with the attorney general. I have also emailed Tien Phan and Annette Fontanilla in CUSTOMER LOYALTY. If this issue is not resolved soon I will take a a small claims lawsuit for a full refund. This is not the first time the ASUS service department has refused to fix known defaults or claimed the customer damaged the items sent to them. They have also refused to return items to customers if they did not pay the repair bill. even though the items are still under warranty. I hope I will find out that this company has higher ethics than this.

3 out of 5 eggsAsus Transformer T100

Pros: Have setup at work when I start I plug power in and swing away deskmount. Does everything I need and more. Very portable and when just using as tablet is just great for carrying around and entering info i'll need later.

Cons: Cannot keep running even with power plugged in. Have to wait for it to recharge. If I would have known about this I would not have bought it. Am trying to sell or trade for different unit but power problem prevents this option. Very frustrating. Don't buy it if u expect to use it as desktop, even with power plugged in battery will drain until u have to turn off and recharge it. Trusted ASUS products before but this really sucks!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat replacement for a netbook. Better than a tablet.

Pros: Long Battery, accurate touch screen, MS Office,

Cons: power charging cable is a bit short, I think it was only 3 ft. If you purchase an extra cable, make sure you get one that is powerful to help speed up the charging. My old cell phone charging cable takes forever to charge.

Other Thoughts: This is an great replacement for our aging netbook. Windows 8 really shines with the touch screen interface, and the inclusion of Word, Excel & Powerpoint 2013 is a very nice plus. It's the same screen size as a tablet, but is a laptop. Aside from games, I can't think of a reason why you would want to use a tablet in lieu of this. I recommend this for anyone that needs a small PC to do basic web browsing, simple spreadsheets, etc.

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.
