Asus ships Transformer Book T100

Extended battery life and storage capacity are two  features of the latest 10-inch convertible notebook-tablet tablet device for work and play from computer maker Asus.

The company’s Transformer Book T100 comes with a 500GB hard drive inside its keyboard dock and for at least one year, unlimited storage in Asus WebStorage, the Taiwanese firm’s online backup service for data, images, music and movies.

The device also provides users with up to 11 hours of working power. What’s more, according to Asus, its Super Hybrid Engine II technology allows the Transformer Book to remain on standby power for up to two weeks. And just for good measure, the technology also automatically backs up data when battery level drops to five per cent while in standby mode.

The Transformer Book weighs 1.2 lb. It ships with an Intel Atom Bay Trail quad-core processor. Without the keyboard, the Transformer can be used as a standalone Windows 8.1 tablet.

The device is among the lightest 10-inch ultraportables available, weighing in at just 2.5 lbs. with its detachable keyboard HDD dock.

It also comes with pre-installed Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 with full versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.
