The new ASUS Transformer Book T100HA will soon be available for purchase in the UK. ASUS has shared launch details that include both Currys PC World and John Lewis who have partnered with the manufacturer to sell the new Windows 10 tablet from September 30.

You may remember the tablet from Computex where we managed to get some solid hands-on time with the piece of kit. As well as Windows 10, we're looking at an Intel Atom Cherry Trail x5 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS display.

  • Pretty low end. I'm really surprised to see a 2015 tablet/hybrid be released with that low of a display resolution.
  • yea, totally agree, a huge step down from their Chi line
  • It's not the Chi line that's why ;-)
  • ah yea i forgot that
  • And what about firmware update for T100TA so we can enjoy continuum (automatic tablet mode) and mobile office apps fully and for free? T200 already got the update. I'm sad they don't care about us.
  • It is a bit surprising...but this laptop is now more than 2 years old.
    Also, the Office issue is a Microsoft one not recognising the screen size as being eligible for the free Office apps.
    Not a problem for me as I have 365 - but it would be nice if they fixed this issue so others can the apps.
    Still love my T100TA. A great balance of features - with a faster than usual processor.
  • I agree. When I updated mine to the latest Insider build the Wi-Fi stopped working too! This is not a good sign that they can't do some simple fixes so their customers get a good experience. I probably won't get an Asus 2-in-1 when this one completely stops working. Right now I can't access internet at all so it's pretty close to being useless.
  • So you're complaining about an INSIDER build breaking functionality?
    Just a thought...if you aren't prepared to deal with such issues, don't be an Insider!
    My T100TA is working fine with the RTM Windows 10 release.
  • This is true. Still, it's indicative of quality... I have a T300 i7 Transformer Book. It's massively underpowered despite it's high end processor, the hinge mechanism is fragile and connection with the keyboard is unstable.
    It's a beautiful device, but the quality certainly doesn't match it's design or it's price. I'm not likely to be buying an Asus device when this one dies.
  • I bought my T100TA six months ago and already have n cracked screen. This happened when i tried to dock the screen in the keyboard. Now im sitting with a tablet where half of the screen does not recognize touch inputs
  • Impressive effort.
    My T100TA is now 2 years old. It's lived in a cycle touring pannier for 9 months of that time. The only thing that has failed is the HDMI port.
    Not bad considering it only cost me £120 (sold cheap to me because the buttons on the tablet were misaligned. Asus fixed that as part of the first years warranty).
  • I just bought the CHI 300 it is an amazing machine and very good value for you're money. I think Asus is one of the bests Oems.
  • Cool lapaz,although it got a lower screen resolution,lower RAM but thats cool wth mi...Believe mi that's gotta b out compited in no tym
  • Looks good.. Estimate price?
  • "With the piece of kit". You sure you meant kit?
  • It's a Rich Edmonds article. Weird sentence construction and phrases are to be expected.
  • English expression.
  • Used in a different context, perhaps. But it just doesn't sound right in the way it is used here.
  • It was used correctly.
  • Common expression here in the UK
  • Wish they would launch a T120, I find a 10" screen too small to use as a laptop. The bezels on this are so large they could easily fit a 12" screen without increasing the overall size of the device.
    And make it 1920x1200 while you're at it.
  • if ASUS did not put 4GB of RAM and 1080p is to keep price down, this convertible is a winner device for kids, young students and eldery people, you dont need more specs to run about 70% of desktop software on this device smoothly
  • if you need a powerful tablet with those spec. for a good price then you need to buy a Cube i7 with 4GB ram, 128B SSD (not eMMC), Full HD screen and Intel core M for just 500USD. Yes, its not a world wide know company but for 500USD is a must have for students or people with low budget but high expectations :)
  • 1.5kgs...and 800 grams just for the tablet.
    Way too heavy - regardless of the cheap price.
  • I want something like this, but powerful, and not this poorful.
