Upcoming ASUS Transformer Book T100 model to sport 500GB hard drive?

ASUS Transformer Book T100

ASUS announced the Transformer Book T100 convertible Windows 8.1 tablet as coming with either 32GB or 64GB of onboard storage. Expansion comes in the form of microSD cards. This may leave those wanting more storage capacity yearning for more. They may be in luck as it appears that ASUS has at least one more still-unannounced T100 model planned.

The ASUS Transformer Book T100TA-DK005H appears much like the current 32GB model except for one interesting difference: ASUS has added a 500GB 5400RPM hard drive to the keyboard dock. The idea appears to be that docking the tablet into the keyboard means more serious work is planned along with a greater need for storage.

The ASUS Transformer Book T100TA-DK005H is already available for pre-order at French online retailer RueDuCommerce for €449 (about CA$630 or US$615), a pricey upgrade over the current 32GB model. It shows an availability date of December 1.

There is no official word about this model from ASUS, let alone confirmed availability and pricing details.
