    Different Asus Trio Models

    Searching the internet presents two Models of the Asus Trio, each with i5 and i7. They are
    • TX201LA-CQ012 or TX201LA-CQ013
    • TX201LA-CQ004 or TX201LA-CQ005

    What are the diference between these two groups? In November i have got the CQ013, but i returned it in December.
    Now i want to buy a new one.

    Which are the differences between these Model-groups?

    I wasn't actually aware there were different models out there, but Asus did originally announce a range of processors would be available... I guess they've finally gotten around to shipping the alternative variants.

    Out of interest, what made you return your Trio?

    The first answer from asus support was, that there are different harddisks/SSD. But all models have the same 500GB HDD. I found on international sites some models with 750 GB HDD, but these models are named with TX201LA-1A**. I am waiting for a second answer.

    I've got some of the first trios on 18th of November. At that time was Windows 8.1 listet on the support site of Asus. So the first thing was to update to Windows 8.1 with all the problems later on.

    Quite later i found this forum with the warning not to update.

    After reinstalling Windows 8 there were the problems with wifi and the black screen which leaded to return the trio.

    Now i read, that asus has updated some software and the problems with wifi can be handled.

    And now i want to give the trio a second chance ;-)

    I got one of that same first batch too and also updated to Win 8.1.... and yes, had the same problems with the black screens. I have to warn you, even running the latest versions of BIOS code, drivers and Android firmware there are still a lot of issues with 8.1 support, mostly around the display driver freaking out and just displaying a blank screen in Windows until you power cycle it or plug in an external display.

    That said, I've been running 8.1 the entire time I've had my Trio and, whilst it is a bit of a pain in the butt sometimes, it does generally work. The OS switching is reliable, even if Windows is just a black screen when the driver bugs out. Supposedly there is an updated Intel driver but it's not hit the Asus driver site yet so I assume it's still working its way through Q&A.


    I've never heard of any WiFi issues with the Trio though, mine seems to have been working perfectly well... gets a better signal strength than my old Transformer Prime (which worked fairly well for me, albeit with a lower signal strength than you'd expect... that model was notorious for poor WiFi performance though)

    Finaly i've got the answer, that TX201LA-CQ004 or TX201LA-CQ005 do not have an adapter Displayport to VGA. That is the only difference
