Design and Screen
A nice combination of aluminium and plastic is used in the design of the Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi. At a thickness of only 16.5 millimetres, this convertible is quite slim – the tablet-only half of the machine comes in at just 7.5 millimetres.
The weight of the notebook is rather decent at 1.43 kg. Contrary to what is obtainable with some of its rivals, the Transformer Book T300 Chi is completely detachable such that the keyboard and screen portions can be used separately.
It sports a brilliant 12.5-inch touchscreen with a resolution of either 2560 x 1440 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi is powered by a newer Intel Core M processor, which is revered for its power efficiency and helps to do away with need for fans in the notebook.
The low-power chip, whose performance compares well with Intel Core i5 processors on some notebooks, is supported by standard DDR3 RAM of 4 GB, upgradeable to 8 GB. Graphics is taken care of by an integrated Intel HD Graphics 5300 GPU. A 32Whr battery powers the hybrid for about five hours nonstop.
