Singapore (24 August 2016) – ASUS today announced the availability of the new Transformer Book T101, which is the latest addition to its successful series of 2-in-1 detachable laptops. The 10.1-inch Transformer Book T101 has a metallic design and is light and compact, weighing only 580 grams as a tablet, and just 1.08kg with the keyboard attached. It features a reversible magnetic hinge that allows its display to be flipped over, providing users with the convenience and flexibility of four versatile modes: a conventional lightweight laptop, a handy tablet, tent mode for easy screen sharing, and stand mode as a personal movie theater. With its incredibly long battery life of up to 11-hours dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, full-size USB port, and complete Windows 10 functionality, the Transformer Book T101 is the ideal mobile companion. The Transformer Book T101 is available at all ASUS Brand Stores and authorised retailers at $399 from 29 August onwards in pink and grey colours.
a. Durable and Stylish
The Transformer Book T101 is stylish and elegant, with an all-aluminium tablet and a keyboard surround that features a chic honeycomb-inspired textured pattern. The aluminium construction not only looks great, but it also makes the Transformer Book T101 more durable and resistant to everyday knocks and bumps. Lightweight construction also allows the Transformer Book T101’s tablet to be slim and light, weighing at only 580g, making it ideal as a mobile lifestyle companion. The Transformer Book T101 is available in two vibrant colours of pink and grey.
b. Versatile and Reversible Hinge
The Transformer Book T101 features a reversible magnetic hinge that connects the tablet and keyboard. This solidly-engineered hinge allows the tablet to be detached, flipped over and reattached, providing two convenient extra modes in addition to the standard laptop and tablet configurations. Tent mode is great for sharing the screen contents with a group of people, while stand mode turns it into a compact personal movie theater.
Powerful, precisely positioned magnets ensure that the tablet can be attached quickly and accurately with minimal effort. To ensure long-term reliability, the reversible hinge has been rigorously tested with a 25,000-cycle mechanical hinge swing test.
The slim keyboard has ergonomic keys with a 1.5mm key travel— longer than that of most mobile keyboards, and the same as a full-size laptop. This long key travel provides more reassuring feedback for every key strike and replicates the comfortable typing experience of a full-size laptop. The keyboard also features a Precision Touchpad with support for Windows gestures. This touchpad has palm-rejection technology that intelligently recognises and ignores accidental presses of the palm during typing, allowing users to rest their hands naturally and comfortably while typing.
c. Clear, Sharp and Bright Display
The anti-glare touchscreen display on Transformer Book T101 has a sharp 1280 by 800 HD resolution. With up to 400cd/m2 brightness, it is one of the brightest 10.1-inch displays ever made. It has wide 178° viewing angles, and ASUS TruVivid direct-bonding technology ensures higher transparency and improved clarity, with fewer reflections in bright environments — even in bright sunlight. Exclusive ASUS Tru2Life video-enhancement technology — similar to that found in high-end TVs — uses intelligent software algorithms to optimise the sharpness and contrast of every video frame, so that videos look clearer, more detailed and more realistic.
d. Powerful Components
Despite its compact size, the Transformer Book T101 packs powerful components that include the latest quad-core Intel® Atom™ X5 Series processor, 2GB RAM, up to 32GB eMMC storage, a microSD Card reader that can support up to 512GB storage, and fast dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. These components operate in complete silence, thanks to the Transformer Book T101’s fanless design, thus allowing users to work or play without distracting noises. It also comes with a more comprehensive set of connectors than other similar-sized devices. These include a full-size (Type-A) USB 2.0 port, a micro HDMI display port, and a microUSB port that can also be used for charging the device. The microUSB port also supports charging from external power banks, enabling users to extend the already impressive up to 11-hour battery life even further, for all-day convenience and optimised mobile productivity on-the-go.
e. An Amazing Windows Experience
The Transformer Book T101 also supports Cortana, an innovative Windows personal assistant that allows natural interaction via its powerful voice-recognition technology. Furthermore, it automatically detects if the keyboard is attached and reconfigures itself for the ideal user experience as a laptop or tablet.
