Asus was always the brave one among the innovators growing out of Taiwan. I remember back in the day when all CD readers were 32x, they were the first to release a 40x one (and I was the proud owner of one of them). Since then I retained my trust in Asus products, even with many others bashing the brand for its failed attempts to innovate.
And today the manufacturer has released something that once again makes me want to buy Asus: the Transformer Book T100HA, with support for Windows 10, with USB-C and with a battery life of 14 hours.
The Transformer Book T100HA is the follow-up to its predecessor, the T100 – a tablet transforming into a netbook with an 11″ screen, Windows 8.1 and up to 11 hours of autonomy. The new version will have a 10.1 inch screen, a weight of just 580g (a bit much for a tablet computer), a screen resolution of 1280×800 pixels, reversible USB-C, and a maximum battery life of 14 hours.
Just imagine how much playing royal vegas canadian online casino games this means on the go. Asus has not revealed the price of its new transforming tablet / netbook device will be, but judging by its predecessor, it should have a price point under $400.
A thing or two about the hardware hidden under the T100HA’s hood: its processing power is assured by an Intel Atom Cherry Trail X5 processor with four processor cores. The device comes loaded with 4GB of RAM, with no word yet about the amount of storage space hidden under its plastic back panel. The device is due to be released sometime in the third quarter, with no exact release date specified just yet.
The T100HA is just one of the several new products the Taiwanese manufacturer has presented at this year’s Computex in Taipei. Asus has announced the following:
– the ZenWatch 2, its 37 or 41 millimeters wide smartwatch with (probably) a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU in it, and with a crown on its side.
– the ZenFone Selfie, which is a ZenFone 2 with a large front facing camera fitted with a 13 megapixel sensor
– the ZenPad S 8.0 with a quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 (64bit) under its hood, fitted with a 2K IPS display and with a thickness of just 6.6 millimeters and a USB-C connector
– the ZenCase, which has the potential to boost the battery life of the ZenPad tablets considerably, by about 15 hours, which is in itself quite impressive.
