ASUS T100HA 10.1" Transformer Book $342 Harvey Norman

450

They've upgraded these since the T100TA, they now boast up to 12 hours battery life, the new Type C USB 3.0 Connector, and a faster Cherry Trail Quad Core Intel Atom Z8500 CPU up to 2.24GHz and the associated increase in performance to the integrated graphics.

Unfortunately it is still somewhat crippled by only 2GB RAM (soldered), and a very meh screen but its fine for general use.

These used to be a bargain at $450 https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/130839.
For $342 for the upgraded model seem like a pretty stellar deal.
Today only so get it while you can.

Remember to take advantage of Harvey Normans $25 newsletter signup offer and see if officeworks stocks the same model to get a price match.

    There is a slightly different version of this laptop on Amazon with 4GB RAM and SSD for ~$436 delivered. I bought one a couple of months ago and it seems pretty reasonable.

    Screen in the T100 was really bad, I sold mine 1 week after buying it. Is this one much better or still rubbish?

    Don't want to ask a stupid question but is this touch screen?

    • +1 vote

      yes it is :) I've heard stupider questions on here its ok. But yes the keyboard is removable allowing you to use it in tablet mode with touch screen.

      Careful though, I was planning on doing the same with the X205TA I bought last year, unfortunately the SD card slot only runs at something like 12Mbps, SUUUUUPPPER slow. It is sadly much quicker to use a USB2 SD adapter… I assume this netbook will be the same.

    The reviews killed my interest

      You will find it hard to find a 2-in-1 windows machine at this price
      There is one similar HP machine if you like that in HN bargain posted recently

        Anything around the $300 mark is always going to have significant trade-offs. Same is the case for the Lenovo 100s i bought… but the price, $209.. that made it brilliant.

  •  

    anyone ever tried one of the many chinese 2 in 1s compared to this? Tend to have 4GB RAM and 1080p screens for around the same price.

  •  

    1280 x 800 screen.

    Unfortunately there aren't many options for 10 inch windows tablet with a good ipad like screen.

        Probably a good thing.

        I had the previous version and returned it because with 2gb ram it's unusable.

        Not worth $350.

        These things should be priced at around $200 to be a bargain.

          Sold my acer iconia a501 tablet - had only 1 gb ram. haha 2gb would be heaven. Not sure though with current day android OS and the like how 2gb would run though.

    Hi Freefall101.

    Silly me bought one of those Chinese Spy machines with crappy 1080p screen on a 11.6" touchscreen display. Yes, I was a bit sus to start off with.

    http://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_261673.html

    Had it for a month. Extremely happy. Bought it to replace an aging 10" netbook and my aging eyes. I couldn't mistake it for an i3, but it is pretty bloody quick surfing the net with multiple tabs and browsers opened while playing a HEVC 8Gb file. This was running in Win10-64bit. That was my bit of testing.

    Have not installed Handbrake to test video conversion. May be later for a laugh, but don't want to set the thing on fire .. yet.

    For a bit of fun for the kids, I reboot to Android for them to play games.

    The only thing is, it can only drive an external Hdisk at USB2 speed via the USB3 plug. Sticks go quick at USB3 speed. The battery should last the long flights at about 8 hours playing time.

    For your info

    Does this come with the keyboard as pictured above?

    Silly question but this usb c thing that is the latest gen usb connection - for all of us with the standard usb plugs still (usb 2/3) do you just buy a converter plug? Going to be a pain while everything transitions whereby previously all usb cords have worked for a number of years over many devices :(

    I miss the days of the 9"-10" netbooks for $200-350 back when it was all the rage. Sure you can get a convertible tablet now adays but somehow the price seems to be well north of 400-500+ i find for a decent ram/specs one as opposed to the old netbook days…

    Ah the keyboard IS EXTRA .. careful if you are looking at US$ too. I bought a good tablet cover/stand (hard to find) and use an existing wireless keyboard and mouse. Works a treat. Love that right click.

    Mine is just a USB 3 connection - not a problem. Just don't use the ultra fit thumb drive to fit in, it overheats on idle and the system will eject it. Currently using Cruzer Fit (usb2) much slower but no problem as extra storage. Work with all the many thumb drive that I have, just not the Ultra Fit.

    Not a $200 Netbook with 2Gb, that can only run win10 with a ten second delay on every click — OMG. This thing is worth the extra money, it is actually quick. And 1080p touchscreen and not 600p on the netbook.

    •  

      you must be looking at something else. We are looking at the one linked in the OP from Harvey Norman that DOES come with the attached Keyboard

  •  

    Also for the record i am NOT associated with Harvey Norman, dunno how to change it now.

      Maybe you could let the moderators of this site know and see if they could remove the associated branding you accidently clicked on.
