The Asus Transformer Book Chi T300 is a Windows tablet with a 12.5 inch high-resolution display and a low-power Intel Core M Broadwell processor. It’s also a Windows notebook thanks to a detachable keyboard dock.
The $699 model of the 2-in-1 tablet features an Intel Core M-5Y10c processor, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB solid state drive, and a microSd card slot for removable storage.
Asus is also expected to offer models with 2560 x 1440 pixel displays and 8GB of RAM in the future.
Other features include a micro USB 3.0 port, a micro HDMI port, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 2MP front-facing camera (but no rear camera), and a separate micro USB port on the keyboard dock.
Asus says the Transformer Book T300 Chi should get up to 8 hours of battery life from the built-in 2 cell battery. The tablet itself measures about 0.3 inches thick and weighs 1.6 pounds. Add the keyboard dock and you’ve got a notebook that measures 0.64 inches thick and weighs 3.2 pounds.
Don’t need a touchscreen and detachable tablet? Asus also offers a $699 laptop called the ZenBook UX305. It measures 0.5 inches thick, weighs 2.6 pounds, has a fanless design, a 13.3 inch full HD display, and an Intel Core M processor.
