Getting a 4 GB DDR3L RAM is more-than-enough for this processor. And getting 64 GB eMMC type storage for a detachable laptop is a great spec to consider. Most of the laptops in this price range feature a 32 GB eMMC storage at the time of writing this review. So, RAM and storage are the best specs for ASUS T101HA. Overall, this detachable notebook is suitable for light usage and using for entertainment purposes.

There will be a disappointment in webcam quality as this model comes with a 2 MP webcam and an integrated array microphone. So, you can't have high quality video calls.

Good connectivity options with a USB 2.0 port, micro USB port and micro HDMI port. You can expand storage memory via SD card. With 802.11 ac WiFi, you can have better internet connectivity than previous generation WiFi standards.

This detachable laptop runs on Windows 10 operating system. You can expect a greater battery life, up to 11 hours in normal usage. Battery life depends on your usage but in general, this battery life is awesome.
