5.0 out of 5 stars
Currently the best available Tablet/Laptop in the market at its price point ($760 when I bought it), December 5, 2013
By 
(REAL NAME)
  

Let me first start with the cons

- No backlit keyboard
- SSD/Memory are etched to the mobo. They cannot be expanded
- Keyboard and Tablet need to be charged separately. The dock doesn’t transmit charge
- No WACOM digitizer help
- Tablet on the dock can’t be pushed back far enough. The tilt angle could’ve been better.
- Max brightness could’ve been better

Now after mentioning the above cons, I still give this a solid five mainly because this is the best Hybrid tablet/laptop in the market powered by the Haswell series. Yoga, Taichi, ATIV, Split x2, Venue Pro… none of them offer what this offers at its price point. I bought it for $760 on Black Friday. Now about the pros

-Solid construction with Aluminum
-Screen is gorgeous with full 1080p help. The tablet itself feels like holding treasure
-Performance is quite smooth and pleasing. I have Netbeans, MySQL, Tomcat running comfortably.
-Full sized Wireless keyboard works even when the tablet is not docked
-Battery life of solid 5 hours with decent brightness and multitasking.
-Specs are quite decent for most day to day tasks – i5 4020u, 4GB ram, 128GB SSD
-Enterprise help with TPM
-13.3 inch screen size hits the sweet spot (12″-13″) as 10.1″ sucks for office productivity and anything greater than 14″ becomes too bulk.

If ASUS fixes the following in the next release, it would become a very attractive choice compared to its competition

-4k resolution
-Expandability for SSD, Memory
-Simplified Charging
-Reduced overall weight (Contemporary tablet weight is 2.4lb, Dock weight is 1.7lb)
-Help Hybrid mode for Windows & Android (Like Samsung ATIV Q)
-Digitizer help (Will please graphic designers and artists immensely)

I had been on market for an ultrabook in view of the fact that Haswell processors have become more available on the market. In the past I have used frequently brink like machines for computational power and 3D rendering capability. I figured this is the time for a change. Instead of getting an laptop with huge RAMs for simulation /data processing and a dGPU for hardcore making a bet I don’t know it is better to let desktop to handle that type of material. I wanted something portable, something slick to bring with me in the public, with a touch screen, and it must last long.

I have been eyeballing on the Asus T100 64GB transformer book for a minute. It had a fantastic budget during thanksgiving, but I missed out every deal which were vacant at $300!! How about a MacBook? Nahh, no touch screen. I was honest thinking about getting the UX302 from ASUS but they choose to not come out in US till later quarters :< Why did I choose to go with the T300LA even though the price is triple? Comparing to T100 the CPU benchmarking is nearly three era higher. Two era more ram, two era more memory. instead of a 720p T300LA is a 1080p. A larger screen. Aluminum top instead of plastic. Roughly 2-3 X the computational power in a roughly similar size device, the extra is really worth it.

So about 1 week the apparatus been running like a charm. It is an eye candy. Everytime I dock my T300, or detach it for tablet use, I feel I am under spotlight :D

My GF and I saw a two HD videos on medium brightness background on the airplane for about 4hours and the battery went down from 80%- 40% (lacking wifi on). so I would proudly say the 8hours+ of usage advertised is really valid here. The device came with a keyboard, I believe it has a 1 cell battery in there. The tablet itself has 4 cell 50whr battery. (I reckon) The keyboard is comfortable to type on and the touchpad is sturdy, accurate, and responsive.

What I am effy about the tablet is.. it seems like the keyboard needs to have battery to be functional, and it is only chargeable through a micro usb port.. The device only have 1 USB 3.0, so this means sometimes you will have to use that port to charge your keyboard so that you can use it? Pretty weird setup, why isn’t it possible to charge via docking? Also the maximum brightness is kind of low compare to most of the laptop I had. The maximum brightness is just aptly for indoor sharp environment viewing.

I haven’t install any games on this apparatus yet. I will, just to try it out and I will be updating this review to see if the T300LA is able to run them. I will update on this review if something goes incorrect :)

Update: I transferred War Thunder, a World War 2 flight simulation game using a usb 3.0, the alacrity goes up to about 60mb/s top. with 1920x1080p at low background the game was running around 28-18 fps. is it playable? your call. I noticed at the “minimum” background, even with 1920x1080p in airplane selection window solid 50-60 fps, and in game.. I got 90-50 frequently hanging around 65fps… holy I am amazed! To be honest for this game at minimum background everything looks better than low! because it cut out many unnecessary things.

Diablo 3 works with no lag at lower background. StarCraft 2 works with no lag at medium background. I am impressed. But, my additional laptop with i7 HD4600 have an obvious advantage of 25-40 frame rate when a lot of things are happening.

This review is from: ASUS Transformer Book T300LA-XH71T 13.3″ Detachable 2-in-1 Touchscreen Ultrabook, Core i7-4500U (Personal Computers)
This apparatus is a god send. First, the stats…

i7-4th gen Haswell dual core processor
8 gb of ram
256gb SSD

Oh, and it boots up in LESS THAN SEVEN (7) seconds and it shuts down in less than TWO (2)!

Those stats alone are incredible but add in the fantastic 13.3″ screen with 1920×1080 resolution, the exceptional battery life (at LEAST 6.5 hours but if you tone down the brightness your battery will last WAY longer), the incredibly light weight and all of the additional fantastic things and you come to realize… ASUS is insane for only charging $1399!

Disclaimer: I do NOT work for ASUS. ;)

Seriously, I like this 2 in 1 laptop. I am a student programmer and Link (the nickname I gave this incredible robot) can handle anything I toss at him. Visual Studios with all of its additional components, compiling and multitasking etc, all even as looking sleek and futuristic.

ASUS has made the perfect apparatus.

That being said, there are a few things that might dissuade additional buyers… possible cons:
- Only one (1) usb 3.0 port
- Keyboard is NOT backlit
- Keyboard does NOT spectacle its battery life… kind of a guessing game as far as I can tell (possible that I just have no thought how to tell haha)
- Lack of expansion options (to be honest you don’t need it but hey, some people might want it)
- Non-capacitive screen. It is a 10-point multi touch screen but you cannot use a capacitive stylus with this apparatus

I would recommend this laptop for sure. It is, for me, literally the perfect apparatus. I’m sure in a few years there will be newer, cooler things but, for the second, the T300LA reigns supreme in my opinion.

Feel free to comment if you have any questions, I will try and answer them as best I can.

A few things I’d like to add to help answer some questions:
- Micro SD slot is located along the bottom of the tablet part (note: SDXC capable)
- has a MICRO (NOT mini) HDMI out
- does have a connection for standard headphones
- has front AND back webcams/cameras

edit: added one new possible con (non-capacitive screen) and a section at the end listing additional features that were not included in the original review. As per Steve’s comments we have confirmed that SDXC micro SD cards are usable.
