ASUS Malaysia has announced the arrival of a new shipment of ASUS Transformer Book T100 (T100TA-DK005H), its affordable 2-in-1 10-inch ultraportable laptop cum tablet. The device has been a hit and stocks have been scarce since its introduction in October 2013.

The ASUS T100 features the quad-core Intel Atom Z3740 running at 1.33Ghz, and packed with 2GB RAM (and 2MB L2 cache) and in 32/64GB variants. The 10.1-inch IPS LCD is a HD display (1366x768pixels @ 155PPI). The ASUS T100 supports dual-band WiFi 802.11b/g/n and also includes a microSD expansion, USB 3.0 slot.
As a tablet, the ASUS T100 weighs only 550g. With the detachable keyboard plugged in, it weighs just slightly over 1kg, one of the lightest notebooks around. Together with the keyboard, the ASUS T100 gives users up to 11 hours of battery life.
