The Asus Transformer Book T300LA-DH51T is a 2-in-1 convertible, an Ultrabook and Tablet at the same time, powered by the latest 4th generation Intel Core Haswell processor and runs on Windows 8 operating system. This is actually the bigger and more powerful brother of the Transformer Book T100.
The T100 is the 10-inch version, powered by a Bay Trail Quad-Core processor, and is much cheaper. But if you want a better display, larger storage capacity, and more processing power then the Asus Transformer Book T300 might be the one for you. Today let’s check out the Asus Transformer Book T300LA-DH51T which is powered by an Intel Core i5 Haswell processor with 128GB of SSD storage. Check out its specifications, price, and where you can buy one below.
The Asus Transformer Book T300 is truly an amazing device. It doesn’t have a dual OS functionality like the Transformer Book Trio, but it is a 2-in-1 convertible Ultrabook and Tablet in one. Its little brother the T100 is okay since it’s very affordable for a tablet and Ultrabook in one, but it is limited in terms of processing power and storage capacity. Not to mention its 10-inch display is not Full HD, instead, it has only a resolution of 1366×768.
But the Transformer Book T300 can provide you with more processing power, better display, and more room for multitasking operations. Under its hood, it is powered by the latest Intel Core Haswell processor, an i3, i5, or i7. The T300LA-DH51T is powered by a Core i5-4200U; and thanks to the combination of a Haswell processor, a solid-state drive, and Windows 8, you’ll get a fluid and smooth-running device.
Its 13.3-inch display is a Full HD IPS touch screen with a resolution of 1920×1080 and a 178-degree viewing angle. The text, images, and colors are sharp and vivid on this device. And since this is a touch screen, the display is glossy. There are built-in mic and speakers on this device, and they are not just your regular speakers, they are Bang & Olufsen ICEpower with SonicMaster Technology to deliver an immersive audio experience. It’s loud enough, but I would still prefer to pair mobile devices, like this Asus Transformer Book T300LA-DH51T, with some external Bluetooth speaker.
This is also built with a feature called Super Hybrid Engine, short for her, which greatly enhances the notebook’s energy efficiency, letting users enjoy longer battery life per charge—enabling longer hours of continuous computing. SHE also offers a choice of performance and power consumption modes that allow users to make quick and easy adjustments to suit their usage scenarios.
In addition, SHE has the ability to intelligently boost system performance under heavy load, thus enabling the notebook to meet the demands of processor and resource-intensive tasks. Check out the rest of the specifications below, as well as its price and where you can buy one.
