Asus Transformer Book T200TA Unboxing and Initial Impression
We got the Asus Transformer Book T200TA in the house! Let’s take a closer look at this 2 in 1 Tablet PC detachable device. It’s a 11.6-inch IPS LCD display powered by Intel Atom Z3775 1.46GHz Quad-core CPU with Intel HD Graphics Gen7 4EU. Also equipped with a 2GB LPDDR3 RAM 533.3MHz with 32GB EMMC Storage and an additional 500GB Hard drive which also supports up to 64GB via Micro SD.
Hard drive is the main advantage of this device comparing to the other version T100 that needs to remove the entire back cover, with the T200TA it just need one screw to open the plate of the Hard Drive that you can upgrade if you want to.
Build of the Transformer Book T200 is a plastic material with a metal look finish the only aluminum part is the docking panel that you need to press if you want to detach the tablet from the mobile dock.
Weight of the tablet itself is 0.78 kg (with Polymer Battery) while the mobile dock is 0.76 kg. quite heavy for a 11-inch device.
The tablet itself has all the ports on the left side including Power Adapter port, 3.5mm Microphone-in/Headphone-out jack, Micro USB, micro HDMI and the Micro SD Card Slot. While Mobile dock has the RJ45 Lan Port and USB 3.0 on the left side.
Front display has the Asus Logo on the upper left and the 2-megapixel camera, bezel are really thick with this device since it’s a detachable tablet. IPS Display 16:9 ratio with (1366×768) resolution Multi-Touch Screen (10 points).
Back of the tablet has this circular chrome finish texture with a curve edge. 5-megapixel camera in the center and the Asus Branding with silver color in the center, all the buttons are on the left side the power button, volume rocker and the windows button. Speaker grill are on both sides middle part of the tablet, weight is just OK without the dock.
The package content includes the Dedicated Power Adapter with 19v output, User manual and Warranty card.
When the tablet is attach with the mobile dock it can only be open upto 170 degree so be sure not to force it to open upto 180 degrees flat. The Mobile dock has also have a USB port 2.0 on the right side. Qwerty keyboard is really nice it’s quite similar with the macbook air on first glance and the Trackpad is seamlessly large or better ergonomic experience.
Also has the Shortcut buttons on the Function keys for easy access like the Wi-fi, Volume, Brightness and many more.
I really like the clicky sound of the keypads and trackpad and the elegant build of the dock but then the weight is just heavy for the Mobile dock because of the Hard Drive built-in to it. Keyboard automatically lifts a few angle when it’s attached with the tablet when you fully open the it.
