Yesterday, ASUS Philippines unveiled the T100 Transformer Book, essentially a follow up to the tradition of tablet + keyboard device that made a name for the Taiwanese company even before the whole Windows 8 hype was around. The Transformer Book essentially comes from the line of Transformer and Transformer 2 tablets that ran on iterations of the Android platform. In this case, ASUS has upgraded the processor to a quad core Atom Intel chip which means that (1) you’re going to get some decent computing power for daily productivity and (2) you get stretch battery life at 10-11 hours. Usually, manufacturers over-promise their battery life tests printed on the box but since the FonePad, ASUS has been posting stretch milestones with their batteries.
The T100 isn’t a sprint device. It’s meant for the marathon long haul to get your s%it done before your day ends.
