Verified Buy(What’s this?)
I’ve been using this for about 2-1/2 months and like it. I’ve had no prior experience using touch-screen commands but had very small difficulty adjusting. Additional comments you’ve read including battery life are accurate from my experience. Be aware there are limitations: Only one USB port; no camera a la iPad; very small key pad especially if you’ve got large hands and are used to full size keyboards; 32GB pad is really too small for heavy usage.

Confirming additional’s comments plus some of my own:
1. Do buy 64GB pad even though it costs extra.
2. Immediately set updates for manual selection vs automatic.
3. I’ve left keypad “as-is” and have been very satisfied with default settings.
4. I immediately set-up Firefox as default browser (with ixQuick HTTPS overlay for security).
5. I immediately set-up Classic-Shell overlay to maintain Win-7 versatility. (Installed easily and works fine).
6. I immediately added Glary Utilities; CCleaner; MalwareBytes; and a few others I use regularly – no problems.
7. I immediately added a Logitech mouse simply because I rather it to a keypad for daily usage.
8. Consider buying/using a USB dock due to the single USB port provided in the keyboard. (You won’t need break power supply in view of the fact that the keyboard USB port will involuntarily power the external dock).
9. There are a bunch of aps installed that I don’t use or want (social media, et Al) but I’ve not yet deleted. I’m guessing I’d free up more space on my limited 32GB pad in view of the fact that I made the mistake of not ordering the 64GB version.
10. I’ve downloaded programs directly and I’ve transfered programs/data via thumb drive; all with no problems.
11. The system works simultaneously with mouse and touch-screen commands both activated at the same time.
12. Be aware there is no CD drive (or DVD drive). Not a problem in view of the fact that you can add with a portable USB connector. Mine works fine for both the CD/DVD drive and the older 3-1/2″ floppy drive (guess I just really dated myself).

Hope this helps you with your eval. I wanted to have known much of this prior to my buy. The single change I would have made in my order would have been to upgrade to the 64GB pad.

Much better than i expected!, April 25, 2014

Verified Buy(What’s this?)
So, I spent a lot of time looking at various windows 8 tablets. The huge requirement was that it be the full version of windows 8, not the RT. As I looked, I researched a bit on the new Bay Trail processors that are establish in these tablets. From the reviews I read, they seemed to be a honestly excellent option for the casual user. I must confess, I was very hesitant to buy this tablet at first because I was apprehensive about having a slow processor. I had just upgraded my processor in my desktop purely because of my dissatisfaction with a slower processer(which was still more than enough for what I normally do with it). I just like to have the newest and the best. Anyways, as I looked around, I realized that at the price point I was looking, there were really only three viable competitors depending on the price I could get. My options narrowed down to the Asus T100, the HP Omni 10, and the Dell Venue 11. Both the HP and Dell had a slightly quicker processor, along with the 1080p screens. But, unlike the T100, neither came with the keyboard dock and both were a small more expensive.
I had originally discounted the importance of the keyboard dock. After all, how could it be any excellent at this price point? In the end, I sold my previous laptop, a bulky apparatus and chose to turn around and buy a laptop. A couple things made me bite the bullet and point out the T100. First, the processor was only one step below the additional two, I figured id be fine compelling into account i’m only using it for school. Also, my laptop had the same resolution as this tablet, and it was fine on a 15.6″ screen, so I figured that being so much smaller, I really didn’t stand to gain much vacant for the higher resolution. When I sat down to buy the tablet, I was vacant to get the 64 gb version and get a micro sd card for it at 64 gb as well. Well, during the checkout process, I realized that for 15 dollars more, I could sacrifice some domestic storage down to a 32 gb, but get a 500 gb hard drive built in to the hard drive. That seemed like a steal, so I chose to pull the trigger and just get it. With four dough overnight shipping(finally FedEx got it to me when I questioned for it), I was ready to use it the next day. I plugged it in like it questioned and got rushed, so I started the set up even as it was plugged in so as to avoid the problems I read about from not charging. Turns out I had 100% battery within 30 minutes. surprising. lol. The first thing I noticed background it up is the build quality. Everything uses a plastic, but, it all feels sturdy. I have no flex in the keyboard, and the Chiclet keys are simple to type on. I am writing this review on the keyboard a day or two after I got it. I will admit, the shift key is a small small, but otherwise Im nearly used to it already. It isn’t that hard to type on. The trackpad I feel could use a small work, but for its size and what I was expecting, im honestly impressed. There is the early lag when you have to turn it on again, but that is smallest and you get used to it.
Once the tablet was really set up, I have used it for everything. The screen quality is fantastic! With it on my lap, I notice no pixels or anything and everything is very crisp and clear with fantastic insignia and is very nourishing to use. Its clear and really doesn’t take away from any of the experience. With the Bay Trail processor, I rarely get hung up on anything. It handles everything ive terrified at it. In the last hour and 20 minutes, ive been surfing the web and writing papers on Microsoft word, and ive used about 17% battery so far. Plenty for a full school day. Im also listening to my music collection from the 500 gb hard drive, and vacant into a stats class with SPSS(statistics curriculum) installed and ready to go. Also, some random guy just said it looks cool and questioned to hold it to see how light it is, literally even as I was writing this paragraph. Im pretty much a celebrity now. Anyways, its awesome. Light, cheap, quick, and has plenty to offer for a casual user who desires the portability of a netbook but the productivity of a normal windows laptop. Especially for the price, I vastly recommend this thing!

Minor Upgrades From 2013 Model But Still A Winner!, July 15, 2014

The T100TA-C1-GR(S) is the 2014 version of the T100TA-C1-GR. Looks like ASUS is following the `S’ convention for minor upgrades ;o) This upgrade is indeed minor – seems like the only two differences between this 2014 model and its 2013 predecessor is, 1. Increase in processor clock alacrity from 1.33 GHz to 1.46 GHz, and, 2. Addition of two new insignia – Red and White (ok, ok…this is a small more than a minor upgrade!).

The T100(S) is a fantastic small Windows 8 transformer laptop/tablet with a few flaws. It fills in the void for those who need a reliable keyboard laptop but want very much for a tablet. I would have plotting that there would be more choices out there at the T100 (S)’s price point but even a year later there aren’t very many competitors (Lenovo Yoga, maybe?!!)

The T100(S) is equipped with a new generation Intel Atom Quad Core Processor with 2 GB of DDR3 RAM and a 64GB SSD. The sum of this configuration momentously aids the T100(S) to deal successfully and efficiently with Windows 8.1 and its intensive graphic and touch features. My T100(S) operates just as well on Win 8.1 as my Retina iPad does on iOS7!

The T100(S) has a sharp, clear 10.1″ 1366 x 768 HD IPS multi-touch spectacle. The touch function coupled with the snappy hardware delivers. There is barely any lag.

The tablet docks into the keyboard which houses a full size USB 3.0 port. The tablet has a micro-USB port which is the charging port but can also be used as a regular micro-USB port. It is also equipped with a micro-HDMI port, a micro-SD card slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The T100(S) is primarily constructed of plastic composite and glass. It weighs 2.46 lbs – 1.26 lbs for the tablet and 1.2 lbs for the keyboard. The keyboard does seem a small heavier than it should be, especially in view of the fact that it does not house any batteries. The top of the keyboard including the wrist-rest and touch-pad areas could be aluminium and might clarify the weight. The back of the tablet is smooth plastic even as the back of the keyboard is rubberized.

The keyboard is smaller and in proportion to the size of the laptop. The keys are a small smaller but just as functional as any regular laptop. The keys do not feel like an add-on peripheral, they feel more like a built-in laptop keyboard.

The primary issues I have had with the laptop:
1. The laptop is charged through the micro-USB port. This would not have necessarily been an issue but for the fact that, unlike conventional laptops, the T100(S) needs to get your hands on some (~10%) charge before it starts and is usable.
2. The battery has been of a small concern. Starting with a 100% charge, the behavior has been inconsistent. At era, it will hold its charge in standby for 4-5 days with very small decay. Additional days, it will be discharge in standby mode within a day. I have been playing around with settings in Win8.1 as it seems that the batteries have the potential to hold a charge for a long duration. (See Tips below)
3. The dock connection is still a small flimsy as the 2013 model. Even after the tablet has clicked into place, closing it over the keyboard seems to push against the dock release button and causes it to slip out of the dock. 9 out of 10 era I will pull it out of my case and the tablet would have partially slipped out of the dock.
4. Though this might be more an Win8.1 issue, the touchpad seems to, at era, have a mind of its own.

Bonus Features:
1. Microsoft Office 2013 Home/Student included – this is a very valued bonus.
2. Unlimited ASUS cloud storage for 1 year.

A certain Recommend.

I was experiencing erratic usage era when recovering from “Sleep” mode. I was unable to enable the “Hide” option on this version of Windows and on researching establish that I would have to add a “Hide” shortcut. The “Hide” start-up era are very similar to “Sleep” mode and battery life is the same as where I left it when hibernating.

Aptly click on a blank area on the desktop, Select ‘New -> Shortcut’, type ‘shutdown.exe /h’ in the ‘Type the place of the item:’ text-box. Click ‘Next’, Type a name for the shortcut and click ‘End’. Find the shortcut on the desktop and click ‘Properties’ to set a ‘Shortcut key’ or to ‘Change Icon’ There are fantastic icons available for free on the web to fit in with the Windows 8 schemes. You can add the shortcut to your Metro interface for a one-touch Hide.

* Excellent price-point for a convertible laptop
* Excellent convertible laptop/tablet
* Sharp, clear 10.1″ 1366 x 768 HD IPS multi-touch spectacle
* Fantastic hardware: New generation Intel Atom Quad Core Processor with 2 GB of DDR3 RAM and a 64GB SSD
* Valuable ports: MicroSD, Micro HDMI & Micro USB
* Well built keyboard
* USB 3.0 port on keyboard
* Up to 11 hrs battery life
* Microsoft Office 2013 Home/Student…
