    Will a USA Windows 8 Tablet Work in The UK


    Hi, i am looking to buy an ASUS Transformer Book T100.
    I have looked at the prices of the tablet from the UK, and US. It is cheaper from the US.
    Will the Tablet still be fully functional in the UK? Will i still be able to do everything i can with a UK version of the same tablet? I know the wall charger will be different but it is Micro USB and i have loads of those chargers, will they work?

    Thanks

    Don't see why not, if you have the proper AC adapters, it's just like if I were to travel to the UK with a US based tablet. It'll still work.

    All you need to do is to change the language and keyboard layout settings, as well as region, and you'll be fine. Although ideally if it were me, I'd just do a clean wipe and reinstall Windows from scratch, but that's me.

    I just got the Transformer and plan to take it to Germany. I already took a few US machines to Germany and they all work. I think there would be absolutely no problem. The AC adaptors are universal. You only need an adaptor for the UK outlets. I got mine from here - they are scarce on the market.

    PS: It is a great machine. Very fast, long battery life (mine is still @ 60% of initial charge after 3 days of use), excellent screen (set the DPI to 125% - is easier to read), even the speakers are pretty good and after installing the system, office and a small selection of programs I still have 15GB of free space on the 32GB SSD.

    I got a Bluetooth mouse. Like that better than the touchpad which is OK but too finagle for my big hands. Also got a Stylus to keep the screen clean. My data I keep on a 32GB USB3 stick plus I use a 32GB Micro SD card. Thus you get plenty of storage.

    The sleeve I got is very practical. It has a pocket in the front that holds all the accessories - Charger, USB sticks, Stylus and even a 60GB SSD in an enclosure with cable that I use to make images - you never know when these things go on the blink. Only the mouse does not fit. It is too fat, LOL.

    Supplies seem to be very low. I had a very hard time finding mine and Office Depot only got it in 2 weeks ago - and only on-line. The other brick and mortar stores have none nor do the usual on-line stores like Newegg.
