64GB eMMC (cannot be upgraded)
2GB RAM (cannot be upgraded)
CPU is 64-bit compatible, but OS is Windows 8.1 32-bit only. - When RAM is 2GB, why do you need 64 bit OS? is there any advantage?
32bit Windows 8 used specifically as currently that is the only version with Connected Standby working
Comes with free Microsoft Office Home & Student

It is the best price I've seen for the Asus T100 thus far. I'm still contemplating on whether or not to buy this.

All the specs are very appealing and the free keyboard dock is giving me itchy fingers. However much I want this hybrid, I don't necessarily need one right now. What I do need is to replace my slow as heck desktop PC come BF or Cyber Monday. And with the Nexus 5's release date looming above us any day now, don't know if I should pull the trigger.

yep, 32 bit Win 8.1 (with free Microsoft Office Home & Student)

I'm attempting to get ubuntu to load on the device (device UEFI only support 32bit bootloaders ATM)

if you don't need it, wait for next generation Atom, or BayTrail Clearance or BayTrail + 4GB ram later

This seems like an extremely good deal. $50 bucks off an already ridiculous price. Never bought through Microcenter as they usually are B & M.

This is hard to resist. I really wish this thing could dual-boot Android. Should be possible thanks to the x86 version.

Yup, many other devices coming out soon. Waiting for bay trail w/ 4gb, or bay trail m devices. This is finally a good deal for the T100, though. Good deal.

chip is 64 bit, but it's definitely Windows 8.1 32 bit


wished someone would refund me $50 for the T100 64GB that I bought @ MSRP
