ASUS Transformer Book T200TA-C1-BL 2-in-1 Ultrabook Intel Atom Z3795 (1.60GHz) 4GB Memory 64GB SSD 11.6
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 11.6" screen, 4Gb ram, 64Gb internal storage, keyboard dock,expansion bay for 2.5" HDD/SSD in keyboard dock, mSD slot

Cons: proprietary charger, may be a bit heavy for some people

Other Thoughts: Have had this for about a month now. Upgraded from it's little brother, the T100TA 64Gb 10". Other than no free Office like the T100, it's a great little 2-in-1. I use it for the web, email, Office, VLC media playback. Fast, responsive, good dual-band N wifi. For some it may be a bit heavy but I like it and wanted a bigger screen.
Some reviews say only a 7mm thick drive fits in the keyboard dock bay. Not true. Just don't use the supplied bracket (do put the screws back in though). I put a Crucial M4 64Gb in w/o the bracket and it fits fine. R/W speeds are OK, the T200 sees the M4 as a USB external.
Also the default power button settings in Win 8.1 on this are set to Sleep for everything. This does cause battery drian cause you think you powered it off but it's really sleeping and will use the battery. I changed the power button settings in Windows to power off and now all is well.

ASUS Transformer Book T100 Intel Z3740 Quad Core 2GB DDR3 RAM 64GB SSD 10.1
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Full Win 8.1, NOT RT so you can install desktop programs and Win 8 Metro/Modern Apps.
Comes with Office Home and Student preinstalled, just enter the included product key
2.4 & 5 Ghz wifi
microSD slot
Keyboard dock INCLUDED
USB 3 port on keyboard dock
great battery life

Cons: Not a lot of Apps in the Win8 Store
You can install the desktop versions of what's not in the store but they may not be optimized for touch.
Trackpad not the most responsive one I've used
Screen and back of case are fingerprint magnets. Don't know why the back is so glossy instead of textured.

Other Thoughts: I've had mine for over a week. Flashed the BIOS/Firmware to the latest version which helped the trackpad some but it still a bit laggy/unresponsive at times. Fast wifi, great display, plays videos fine.
For $379 this is a great little unit. Add a 64Gb mSD card and one should have enough space to install programs (NOTE: Win Store Apps ONLY install to the C: drive so install your desktop programs to the mSD card). I was looking at Dell's Venue 11 Pro but by the time you add their keyboard dock and Office you're over $1000. The ability to work on my job docs using Office while on the road with the small size of this T100 is great.
This is the future of what computing is going to.

ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 (ME302C-B1-BL) Intel Atom 2GB DDR2 Memory 32GB Flash 10.0
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: great display, mSD card slot, dual cameras, excellent wifi

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Don't understand why this is now discontinued here at Newegg cause it's available on Am*z*n and other sites.
