ASUS Announces Transformer Book T100HA

All-new thinner, lighter version of best-selling Transformer Book T100 2-in-1 detachable laptop has 12-hour battery, latest quad-core Intel CPUs, pre-installed Windows 10

ASUS announced the stunning Transformer Book T100HA, the all-new version of the best-selling Transformer Book T100 2-in-1. Featuring a design that’s now thinner, lighter and with up to 12 hours battery life, Transformer Book T100HA combines the power of a stylish ultra-light 10.1-inch laptop with the convenience of a super-slim tablet. A wealth of improvements and performance upgrades make Transformer Book T100HA one of the most desirable 2-in-1 devices on the market. These enhancements include powerful quad-core Intel® Atom™ x5 ‘Cherry Trail’ processors, the new Windows 10 operating system with Cortana, the voice-powered personal assistant, and support for Windows 10 Continuum adaptive interface technology.

With its metal-clad lid, comfortable detachable keyboard and four vivid new color options — Silk White, Tin Grey, Aqua Blue and Rouge Pink — T100HA is the perfect mobile companion for users who need versatile and lightweight all-day computing power.

The Best 2-in-1 Gets Even Better

ASUS leads the way in 2-in-1 design, and Transformer Book T100HA consolidates this lead with its uniquely versatile combination of a powerful, lightweight laptop and a razor-thin tablet. With the strong, reliable and robust magnetic hinge that automatically positions itself when docking, the transformation between laptop and tablet is simple and instantaneous. Support for Windows 10 Continuum means that the Windows interface also reconfigures itself automatically for a seamless transition between laptop and tablet modes.

The tablet portion of T100HA is 20% thinner than its predecessor — it measures just 8.45mm — and its weight has been trimmed to just 580g, making it an even more compelling choice for users who need the ultimate in no-compromise mobility.

A good keyboard is essential for a laptop, and the detachable keyboard on T100HA is ergonomically designed for outstanding comfort, with key travel of 1.5mm optimized for extended typing sessions, plus a responsive touchpad that’s the largest in its class.

With Transformer Book T100HA, there’s no need to carry two bulky devices, making T100HA the dream choice for highly-mobile users who appreciate the ultimate in flexibility, but don’t want to sacrifice performance.

All-day Mobility

With a design that’s optimized for power-efficiency, Transformer Book T100HA gives users up to an incredible 12 hours of non-stop battery life , perfect for today’s on-the-go lifestyles. With all-day stamina, there’s no need for users to be constantly on the lookout for power outlets — T100HA works when users need it, wherever they are. And recharging is super-fast too, with exclusive ASUS BoostMaster technology that can top up Transformer Book T100HA with 90 minutes’ worth of battery power in just 15 minutes!

And that’s not all — to give Transformer Book T100HA even more mobile flexibility, it can also be charged from a power bank via the micro USB ports. So even if 12 hours isn’t enough, users can keep going for longer using a power bank.

As beautiful as it is practical
ASUS Transformer Book T100HA has a durable aluminum-clad lid for elegant looks and a premium feel that users will be proud of. And with the four stunning new color options — Silk White, Tin Grey, Aqua Blue and Rouge Pink — there’s a T100HA to suit everyone’s personal style, whether they want to make a sophisticated statement or just reflect their sense of fun.

Powerful and Connected

At the heart of Transformer Book T100HA is the latest quad-core Intel Atom x5 ‘Cherry Trail’ processor, delivering smooth power for any everyday task, and with twice the graphics performance compared to the previous generation. Images are crisp and clear on the 10.1-inch in-plane switching (IPS) touchscreen, with ASUS TruVivid technology to ensure great visibility even in bright conditions.

Transformer Book T100HA is the first Windows tablet to include the latest USB Type-C connector, which has a smaller, reversible design for improved ease of use, as well as allowing USB 3.0 data transfer rates that are up to 10-times (10X) faster than USB 2.0. The Type-C port is destined to replace the original USB port as the standard USB connector in the near future.

Pre-installed Windows 10 with Cortana

Every ASUS Transformer Book T100HA includes a pre-installed version of Window 10. T100HA fully supports Cortana, the innovative Windows personal assistant that allows natural interaction via its powerful voice-recognition technology.
Transformer Book T100HA supports the new Windows 10 Continuum, meaning that the transition from laptop to tablet is even more seamless and intuitive — simply dock or undock the T100HA tablet and the user interface automatically reconfigures itself for the ideal user experience. Transformer Book T100HA also comes with Microsoft Office Mobile pre-installed, giving user immediate access to the Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile and OneNote apps.

Optional Folio Cover for Stylish Protection

The optional Folio Cover is specially designed for ASUS Transformer Book T100HA. The integrated magnets automatically adjust for thickness, keeping the cover firmly attached whether the user is carrying the tablet and dock, or just the tablet. Two convenient stops inside the cover keep the device from slipping when users are typing or watching videos. The use of high-quality materials protects the tablet against scratches and bumps, and the thoughtful design gives full access to all the ports.
