With 2-in-1 laptop models becoming a huge hit among consumers it is no surprise that all of the big brands are rushing to get their version out before the back to school shopping starts and today we will be looking at one of the newest entries to this category and it is the Asus Transformer T304UA-BC003R. This model is a 12.6 inch design that is built to get a great on the go companion. Below we will review some of the benefits and downsides to this model and see just how well it stacks up to the competition.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 256 GB SSD
Screen: 12.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10 Pro
– Of course everybody wants a powerful Intel Core i7 processor included in their new laptop but this does add a lot of expense to the device and the Intel Core i5 which you will find here does just about as good of a job and for much less cost
– It includes a full sized HDMI port which makes it very easy to connect to a larger display when the 12.6 inch screen is just not enough
– Extremely light at just 848 grams makes this a great addition to anybody who travels often technology lineup
– Instead of the common Windows Home edition you will find Windows Pro which adds some nice features that are useful for business users who need to connect up to a corporate network
– With 7.5 hours possible on a single charge the battery life in this model is terrible but far from the best that is available
– Only one USB port is available making it difficult for those that have many devices to connect up at once
– This shouldn’t come as a surprise but just in case it does we figured it should be mentioned, You will not find an optical drive included on this model so reading and writing CD’s and DVD’s will have to be done by an external USB drive if this is something you still rely on
The Asus Transformer T304UA-BC003R is a very well built compact laptop that is extremely light compared to much of the competition. It does seem a little pricey for what you get but most of this is due to the very lightweight design which unfortunately does come with a price.
