I’ll let you into a secret. I’ve got official access to the Mobilegeeks team collaboration system and I can see what’s coming next – and it’s the first English Transformer Book T100HA hands-on video with a secret price reveal!

The Transformer Book T100HA was the only significant product launched (for us) at the Asus press event this morning and it takes what is probably the most popular Windows 2-in-1 so far and updates it with an Intel Atom X5 Z5800, a USB-C port, USB 3.0 on the keyboard dock and a full 64-bit Windows 10 OS. 4GB RAM and 128 GB storage are options that will delight many of you. There’s a new metal casing on the rear and a few other design changes.

Asus are saying that it has up to 14 hours battery life which is possible…if you’re viewing video in aircraft mode with medium-low screen brightness. The new audio subsystem in Atom X5 saves some power and the 14nm process obviously helps. Battery capacity hasn’t been confirmed yet though.

In terms of processing power we shouldn’t expect too much from Atom X5 over Baytrail-T. Maybe 10%. The important part is the eMMC disk and 4GB RAM option. If the eMMC is an improved module there could be serious usability advantages over the previous model. We’re waiting for full pricing details price but as you’ll hear in the video the entry-level price is $279. Our first guess on a 4GB / 64GB model is $379-$399 which is an interesting deal given the flexibility involved here.

The ASUS Transformer Book T100HA elevates Atom-based 2-in-1’s up to a completely new category.

Update: We just got a corrected screen resolution figure. It’s 1280 x 800 which is not very impressive for a modern tablet.
