ASUS T200TA Review
Feel & Look
The Laptop is built very well and it feels premium in the hands.The plastic finish on the back of the screen makes it more comfortable to hold.The Screen can be removed from the keyboard dock very easily and it can be fixed easily again.The display carries the Charger port, 3.5 mm head phone jack, Micro HDMI port, Micro USB port and the Micro-SD Card slot on the left.To the right side of the screen, there is nothing.The power and the lock button is placed on the top left corner little behind the screen.The Volume key is placed at the right side at the backside of the display and the Windows Key is placed below the volume rockers.Also, there are two speakers at the right and left to the back of the display which does a pretty decent job but not too loud I would say.
Coming to the keyboard dock, there is an LAN port and the USB 3.0 port on the left side.On the right side, there is an addition USB port which is useful at many times.The keyboard on the Asus looks premium and the keys are well spaced.I could type fastly without any issues and I could feel the clicks of the keys.The Trackpad is very big and very responsive as well.There is a release button placed at the top of the keyboard which is used to detect the display from the Keyboard dock.
The ASUS T200TA features the 11.6 inches TFT display with 1366 x 768 pixels resolution. The viewing angles are good and even the quality of the screen is good. I often use the touch screen without the keyboard and there are no scratches made yet. You can even adjust the brightness of the display and there is no sensor for the auto brightness of the display. The touch screen display supports up to 10 touch-points.
All we need from a laptop is a good performance and when it comes to Asus T200TA, it does not disappoints you. The machine is packed with 1.46 GHz ATOM Intel processor which can be powered up t0 2.39 GHz. Sadly, the device has only 2GB of RAM but it’s sufficient for the normal usage. The ASUS T200TA handles the 8 to 10 tabs of Google Chrome very well without any issues. I have also checked using Adobe Photoshop on the machine and I could observe no problem with it. Coming to the gaming performance of this laptop, it performance a pretty decent job and I have tested with some basic games like NFS Most wanted, EA Cricket 07 and vice city. But this Transformer Book is not suitable for heavy gaming as it has only 2GB of RAM on the board.
The ASUS T200TA runs on the 32bit of Windows 8.1 Operating System and yes, now you can register and download the Windows 10 as well.The Multitasking on this device is not really great, but it can handle the daily normal usage very well.The ASUS T200TA has inbuilt MiraCast Technology which can allow you to watch images and videos on the bigger screen wirelessly and it can be also used as the game controller.
The Asus T200TA comes with the 32GB of internal storage out of which only 20GB is user available. The keyboard dock is packed with the 500GB of Hard disk and you cannot access the hard disk when the display is detected from the Keyboard dock. The Laptop also has the option for expandable Micro SD Card which is placed at the left side of the display. ASUS also provides 5GB for cloud storage for their users. There is no optical drive( DVD drive) included in the device.
The Transformer Book comes with the 5MP rear camera on the back with Auto Focus. The quality of the image is decent enough and performance very well in the good lighting condition. The ASUS T200TA has 2MP front camera which can be used for video calling and you can toggle before the front and the rear camera during the video call. The Laptop has the Skype Application inbuilt and it also has inbuilt Microphone.The Camera UI is pretty simple with Exposure and video settings.Here are the few camera samples of rear camera
The battery performance on ASUS T200TA is decent enough. The battery lasts up to 4hrs of usage which is good I would say. The laptop is provided with the AC Adopter with the input of 100-200V or 50/60Hz. The output value is 19V and 1.75A.Apart from the battery, the machine feels little heavy in the hand which weight up to 3KG with the keyboard attached. Some of the connectivity options available are Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi.
The ASUS T200TA is definitely a better transformer book for a daily usage.Coming to the pros and cons of the machine, the detachable display, good build quality and design are its advantages.While the over weight and 2GB RAM are the disadvantages.The Asus T200TA is priced at Rupees 33,900 and it is also available via Flipkart and offline stores in India.If you have any other queries about this device, please leave the comment down below.For further reviews and updates, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
