Asus unveils its new line of laptop/tablet hybrids with Windows inside - the Transformer Book Chi trio
As we said right above, the Transformer Book Chi consists of three gadgets - 8.9", 10.1", and 12.5" ones, all of which are made of aluminum. The largest among them, the 12.5-inch Asus Transformer Book Chi T300, will be available in in two variations. One of them will come with a 1080p IPS display, an Intel Core M 5Y70 CPU clocked at 0.8Ghz, and 4GB of RAM, which will cost you $699.
The other one will boast a pixel-rich Quad HD IPS screen, an Intel Core M 5Y71 processor humming at up to 1.2Ghz, as well as 8GB of RAM, which boosts the price to $799. Asus also boasted that the T300 is thinner than Apple's latest MacBook Air, though tipping the scales at 1,445gr (measured with the detachable keyboard) makes the T300 a rather heavy slate.
The mid-sized offering, the 10.1-inch Transformer Book Chi T100, is powered by a Intel Atom Z3775 chipset and has a resolution of 1,900x1,200 pixels. It will bear a $399 price tag once it lands on the market. Last, but not least, the munchkin in the group, the 8.9-inch T90, sports an 1,280x800-pixel display at the front and will damage your wallet by $299 if you decide to give it a go.
Asus' new line of tablet/laptop hybrids will be available sometime this February.
