  • Intel Quad-Core Atom X5-Z8500 1.44GHz
  • 2GB RAM + 32GB eMMC
  • 10.1" IPS touch 1280 x 800
  • WIFI + Bluetooth + 2 Cameras
  • Windows 10 Home


With a lid finished in ultra-cool anodised aluminium, T100HA is not just designed to make a style statement. Yes, it's elegant. And of course it's sophisticated. But it's also durable and practical - and it feels great!

The original Transformer Book T100 was no heavyweight, but with T100HA we've taken it to a new level. At just 8.45mm thin, the tablet is 20% thinner than before, and weighs a mere 580g. Even with the keyboard attached, T100HA still a very slender 16.5mm thick and weighs just under 1kg, so you'll never have an excuse to leave it at home. Take it everywhere, store it anywhere

I'd be amazed if this performs even vaguely adequately.

It's not exactly a gaming range laptop is it...

I didn't say it is. What I am saying is that, yes it's cheap, but it'll probably perform like sh*t and only get worse over time. Barring the windows version, it has the specs of a circa 2012 netbook. False economy in my view.

I think the techradar review mentions the storage's eMMC is slower than not just ssd's but also sd cards...yikes..

Oh so you saying that expensive stuff gets better over time!? Lol you seem to know alot about false economy.what you need is to learn to lower your expectations with lower priced items! I have 1.5 grand custom pc and 8 inch dual core 1.33ghz tablet. And tablet just suits me right for what i need.yes for you probably would be better to get core 2 duo or linx tablet!!!!!!

Have the previous version of this (T100) was running windows 8 upgraded to 10.. about 3 years old now and runs fine. Good for general light use (web browsing, Media player, playing older games etc.) yes it is not a replacement for a full computer but It fits the role of a cheap portable windows tablet fine in my opinion.

Yup, the same things i use my 2 yr old Acer One for. It was very handy when I took it on holiday to Italy last year. When resting in the hotel room I played movies and youtube videos onto the TV via HDMI. Capable enough, but I'm not modelling 3D graphics on it.

I have the older version which I got 2nd hand on ebay for around 120. It is great! Main thing is the battery life which they claim 9 hours and I rarely charge it so that makes sense! It is great for browsing, netflix, videos etc when away marketing. Can play strategy games but xcom 2 didn't work but battlefield academy did. Wii emulator was too slow but you can also use it as a steam link device too to play games in another room and hooking this up to a projector.

How did you upgrade to 10? I never got the invite unlike on my other pcs. I am scared upgrading to 10 will kill battery life or bluetooth (it killed that on my m11x). Can I just install windows 10 using usb drive and use the registry for windows 8? Was it an upgrade or overwrite? I have the office 2013 licence on mine so might lose that. Hmmmm

Quick Question looking around cant seem to find the anwser. Is the battery in the tablet end or both? I have a 6 year old TF101 Transformer Book (2011 Android) with the keyboard dock but the dock is where the larger battery actually is so the claim for the battery life was actually when docked only with the keyboard with my model. Time for a replacement as my headphone jack connection broke on it and really not that fussed on bluetooth headphones with only having something else to keep charged. Currently using a Linx 8 on Win 10 but would prefer the better screen.
Another question aslo, have you tried running bluestacks on it (Android emulator).

Was a while ago so can't remember completely, but it all went smooth for me with no problems at all, hardest part was clearing enough space for the upgrade (had to pretty much uninstall everything, including all the (formally known as) Metro apps)). It seems that mostly older machines have issues with Win 10 upgrade and in my experience is normally down to windows 10 deciding to use drivers that don't work so well with things, but if you can find working drivers most issues can be fixed. Had USB issues on my desktop but manually selecting the intel drivers instead of the microsoft update ones fixed it.

Hate the res, hate the memory, I wouldn't buy something like this in H2 2017. Sorry poster, cold from me. I had an Asus transformer CHI and completely never used it until I sold it off at a loss.

Hi. The battery is all in the tablet. There is no battery in the keyboard in this one.

Don't remember using bluestacks in this one. But did install remixos alongside windows on c drive. Worked fine from what I recall. But was not much storage with both os as only 32gb and I could not get remix os to install and run from d drive microsd so went back to full windows.

I had this model.

Pros:
Lightweight
Keyboard dock is included and key presses are fine.
Performs well for basic tasks
Plays Pro Evo 2016 / 2017 quite well
Also did well with emulators such as PPSSPP & Dolphin (New Super Mario Bros Wii, etc.)
MicroSD storage
Battery life is good

Cons
The keyboard dock is so hollow that the trackpad is annoying to use
Limited uses - ideal for travelling but not really something to use regularly
Charging seemed to take many hours.

Did you expect to sell it off at a profit? oO

I have the 64GB version, couldn't really recommend it - trackpad is cack, and occassionally gets stuck down. it is also slow... I think the lack of Ram is a killer. i bought it to travel for a month and it did this fine, but anything more than very light use is a no go. Wouldn't worry about the screen res though, it's a really good display in general.

Forgot to mention. The old one can play h265 with media player classic (including hdmi out say to my projector) which uses some hardware acceleration. Vlc does not work

They are going for around half this ln ebay for older version. Although I love mine at this price I would look for a chromebook that runs android apps. Depends what you need it for though. Mine came with full office 2013 for example but if just browsing and streaming a chromebook might be better

That depends on your definition of adequate, which will vary greatly for different needs.

It's not going to be a powerhouse by any stretch of the imagination and use of things such as Chrome will not be as effective on the Cherry Trail SOC, so Edge it will have to be for multi tab, reasonably fluid operation.

The quality and speed of the eMMC will be the key factor that decides how fast or sluggish this will be.

USB-C Gen 1 and 12 hour battery life does not make it 2012.

Video playback through HDMI will also be great through Kodi because the Cherry Trail can play 4K and HEVC with ease.

Detachable element also makes it a little more versatile.

So useful things to like for more basic uses.

2GB of ram is not sufficient for a windows 2 in 1 / tablet.

Most of the reviews on amazon say so too.
