ASUS Transformer Book T100

ASUS today announced that it has begun to ship a new variant of its ASUS Transformer Book T100 convertible tablet. The latest model is one that has been eagerly anticipated; it comes with a 500GB hard drive in the keyboard dock. Other than the additional drive, it is identical to the 32GB and 64GB versions that has been on sale since late last year.

With a 10” detachable tablet, the ASUS Transformer Book T100 is the ultimate 2-in-1 portable notebook. It’s light as ever, but packs an extra 500 GB of HDD storage in the keyboard dock. Access all your content and files in one place and enjoy all-day computing – an amazing 11 hours of battery power – without having to plug in a power cord. With the latest Windows 8.1 operating system and Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 preinstalled, that’s a full day of work or play on the run.
