    [OFFICIAL] I got my Asus Transformer Book Trio Thread

    Asus has released the Transformer Book Trio and they should start appearing in the wild!

    Let us know when you get yours, and what you think about this versatile new device.

    Hi,
    I bought it last week : very good device, quite heavy but apparently robust (except the keyboard).
    The main drawback of this trio is: a standard hard disk and not a SSD. Windows 8 is very slow with this HD. I changed it by a SSD and now everything is GREAT !!
    Some others small issues with the integrated ASUS keyboard, but not very important.

    I recommand this TRIO : very good idea!

    Awesome, glad you are enjoying it.

    I switched from mechanical drives to SSDs in my work laptop and my home theater PC. HUGE difference.

    Keep us posted if you have any issues, or if you find any tips and tricks about getting the most out of it.

    Thanks.
    The most important advice that I could give to new owners of TRIO is not to update to W8.1: drivers all not fully compatible. Keep Windows 8 until new drivers will arrive at this page (in French for me) :

    Hello can i ask if the dock keyboard has backlit or not?
    Also can you tell the model of the ssd and how easy is to replace the hdd from the dock.
    Thank you.

    No unfortunately it is not backlit. But perhaps further models will include it.
    Concerning SSD, it is not complicated to install it on the trio: but you should get a high quality torx t5 screwdriver.
    Personnaly I used a Samsung evo 256go ssd. In order to successfully obtain a good clone of the original hard disk, the SSD must be at least 256GO. Moreover, in order to clone the HD, you should use the most recent version of Acronis 2014 (which can reactivate windows with W8 licence present in the bios).

    I live in France and quite surprisingly the TRIO is available in several stores in France since two weeks. But I guess it will be available in Germany the 20th November. in France, we have the i5 version.

    I wish I had seen this thread before I updated to 8.1 . There is a work around but it takes time. Playing with it for couple of days and generally fine although windows seems a lot slower than Android. Also I am used to Samsung flavour of*android and Asus version not as user friendly.

    Bud news since i found in France the i5 100 euro less than amazon de,but without backlit a m not very interesting since i must spend 120-130 euro for ssd and Samsung 840 Pro model 128gb
    ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA-CQ004H (90NB03I1-M00680) : achat / vente Tablette tactile sur ldlc.com.
    Unacceptable form Asus not having backlit since there is battery on dock and very bad move that not using ssd technology.
    Also i would prefer only windows on this product since in tablet mode you can not using windows but only android witch i dont like at all.
    To many compromises from this model by Asus.
