Tech reviews are all about the latest devices and new releases, but how do these devices hold up over time? How are consumers supposed to determine which devices are worthy of consideration for purchase as a refurbished or used unit?
These are the questions I attempt to answer in my Retro Review series, featuring commonly available laptops and tablets that are worth considering for purchase a year or more after their release date.
Today’s Retro Review: The Asus Transformer Book T100-TAM (2014)
What is it?
The Asus Transformer Book line launched in late 2013, featuring a 2-in-1 hybrid design, and attempted to offer the convenience of a tablet with the functionality of a laptop running Windows 8.1. It featured an Intel Atom processor, a 1366×768 IPS touchscreen display, and an all-plastic body design. An updated version has been released annually since that time, as the initial one was a commercial success for Asus.
