ASUS Transformer Pro T304UA DS71T Review – The True Detachable 2 In 1 Laptop

The detachable laptop is becoming so popular and having their market right now. Many people start to prefer this model rather than stick with standard machine for some reasons. I guess the main reason is because the portability that becomes right matter. Here, we could just easily swap it into traditional mode for working and tablet mode for multimedia purpose. This is the important thing that misses from standard machine. Here, ASUS giving you nice option with Transformer Pro for anyone who is getting tired with Microsoft Surface Pro price.

I really know the Surface is a great device, but the price is so expensive and really bother people. Here, you get the similar thing that it has, but in much better cheap price. This is a huge deal and there is no way to miss. Still, we need to know what good and bad things from it. That is why I decided to make a review about it.

That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to talk about it further on this article and see the performance. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.


Design is for some reasons appeared to be similar like Surface. The metallic matte body really reminds me of that device. The design itself is considered as great because it looks and feels nice. I basically really love the glossy silver logo that placed in the center of lid. It does look like Microsoft has and I found that many of friends said it as Surface.

The system is measured at 8.2 x 11.7 x 3.5 inches in 1.9 pounds of weight. The thickness and weight is pretty similar to Spectre X2 without any much different. The body measurement will be thicker as you put the tablet into the keyboard. The two stands on the both sides help you on extending it for reclining it into 155 degrees. The hinge is pretty strong and smooth where I did not have any problem on reclining it. I am so happy since they take their time on providing a nice product.

Display And Keyboard

Transformer Pro 2The 12 inch display with 2K resolution really shows its performance here. As the result, the images quality looks so great and colorful. The panel has 4:3 ratio and means it does looks good on horizontal, but not in vertical reading. The only complain I got is located on the screen brightness that can be better in my opinion. Well, the price is talking here, so no complain from me.

The chassis might be appeared as small, but they still bring a very great and comfortable keyboard. It features of recessed keyboard with 15 mm travel keys distant. It required you to force of 70 grams of punctuation in order to press it. As for it, the typing experience is so smooth and I was able to type for more than 70 words with small errors. The result is great since typing on the 12 inch screen is harder.

Performance And Battery Life

Intel Core I7 processor is rarely to find and offers a promising performance. The 256 GB SSD also helps the performance as the booting process done so fast with only in few seconds. I have tested it for further by opening multiple tabs on Chrome at the same time. I opened for more than 20 of them and there is still no lag although one of tab is streaming 1080p videos. Doing anything from editing documents and streaming video should be done without any issue.

As for the battery life, the life is pretty decent thanks to its 2K display. I only got the maximum battery for around 5 hours and 40 minutes on many test. I tested it by surfing through the net while connecting to the WIFI. The battery is slightly behind with Surface that has battery for 7 hours. I basically do not mind since the charging process done faster.
