ASUS announced at the beginning of the month that the ASUS Transformer Book T100 would launch in Canada on October 18. We’ve seen a lot of interest for this Windows 8.1 convertible tablet from our readers and reached out several times to ASUS in an attempt to get information on where it would be available. Sadly, we never got a response from ASUS.
Also strange was that the ASUS T100TA, better known as the Transformer Book T100, appeared on the ASUS Canada website ahead of the launch but disappeared from it yesterday, the day it was to launch. It proved equally elusive with Canadian online retailers through the day and remains so to this point.
If you’re still chasing the ASUS Transformer Book T100, we have but one recommendation for you: Canada Computers. They list the 32GB ASUS T100TA-DH11T-CA on their website for CA$399. But there’s a catch: They have it as a special order with no current stock. They do indicate that they “will ship within 5-10 business days, but sometimes it might take longer.” You’re best to check with them before placing your order.
Here’s hoping that we’ll see it pop up at more retailers early next week. If or when it does, we’ll update this post.
Update (10/20/2013): The ASUS Canada website suggests the Transformer Book T100 will be carried by Best Buy, Future Shop and Staples. None of them show it as we updated this post.
Update (10/24/2013): NCIX currently shows it in stock: http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=91384&vpn=T100TA-DH11T-CA&manufacture=ASUS
Amazon Canada (affiliate) is now showing as in stock as well. Apologies, that’s Amazon.com.
Update (11/8/2013): You can add Staples to the list as well. Again, huge thanks for Chris!
