    Does the harddrive make noise? Does 11.6 inch make the difference? Can I disable HDD?

    Hey,
    I have a T100 as my main machine and to me it's perfect except for its small screen size.
    I am contemplating buying the T200, but i'm not sure if 11.6 inch is enough.

    First I have a few questions though.
    Can you sit back at the T200 at sort of the same distance as you would sit from a 15inch laptop,
    or is it still necessary to sit very close to it to be able to read everything... as with the T100 ?

    Does the HDD in the T200 make any noise? If so can it be disabled automatically on boot?


    Thanks for the answers!

    I should have mine end of the week or early next week, but I would say that the bigger screen will help. But it depends on your eyes of course. As for the HDD it will make a little bit of noise, however you can remove it completely or replace it was an SSD which is silent and faster. I have a Vertex 4 sitting around I will add to the dock bay. As my T200 isa 64GB eMMC and 4GB ram z3795 model doesn't included a HDD In the bay.
    T200TA with 64GB and the z3795 Atom with 4GB of ram.

    Was able to test a 11.6 inch samsung laptop and at first sight, the screen looked pretty spacious.
    Would you all say that 11.6 inch gives a user enough space to use the T200 as ones main device, and for typing text documents for school?

    Or is a larger screen truely needed, as is the case with the T100 ?

    T200 finally arrived. The harddrive makes that annoying sound as i was already scared of but harddrive can be disabled.

    Screen is big enough but fonts still a tiny bit small. Speakers not as good as t100.

    Anyway ill keep it, i dont want another device
    good ips touchscreen and fast system for little money.

    The only alternative to meis the acer switch 11 but im scared it wud be of lesser quality than asus. I already know its smaller, and the t100 served me fine
