ASUS Transformer Book T100: Game Changer Laptop Hybrid
ASUS took the wraps of a product which we believe can be a game changer for the PC laptop market. Dubbed as the ASUS Transformer Book T100, this 10.1-inch laptop-tablet hybrid is powered by the new Intel Atom “Bay Trail” quad-core processor. This chip is optimized for long lasting battery life (up to 11 hours) and runs on Windows 8.1. It’s also quite a compact and portable product weighing in at just 1.07kg with the keyboard and 550g as a tablet. While those specs are impressive what’s really nice is the price. The 64GB model was announced with an SRP of $399 USD. That’s a killer price that will completely disrupt the market. Knowing the Philippines though we’ll probably get it double that (hehe). Maybe around Php20,000-Php25,000 because of all the taxes that we have locally.
Here’s the complete spec rundown:
ASUS Transformer Book T100 Spec Sheet

This is probably one of the, if not the best value-for-money portable budget-friendly laptop tablet hybrids. During the event ASUS announced it will be available in selected markets starting October. We’re hoping that the PH is already included in the first wave of countries to receive it. Sakto sa “Ber” months!
Congratulations ASUS on a spectacular product and we hope to see this in our shores soon!
