The Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi is a high end hybrid laptop/tablet combo for less. It deviates from the more recent “bend over backwards” technology to the “take off the screen” using a magnetic latch. It uses the Intel Core M processor and has Attached and Detached Bluetooth modes for the keyboard.
The performance and the battery life fall short when compared to similar models in the market. The power button is placed on the top left corner of the screen edge making it susceptible to unintentional power offs.
The processor, the memory, the hard drive and the battery are all embedded in the screen making it a little top heavy, but the resolution is better than HD. Overall, the Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi is a good choice for the price, though some design quirks make it less attractive.
The Asus Transformer Book T300 is a convertible laptop that operates as tablet-cum-laptop. The device offers an alternative to replace your laptop for a more compact and sleek tablet-cum-laptop.
The laptop comes with an Intel Core M 5Y10 processor. The processor has helped reduce the weight of the laptop. The laptop is powered by Windows 8.1.

The most prominent feature of this laptop is its Bluetooth compatible keyboard. The keyboard is a full-fledged working keyboard that can be used by attaching it to the tablet or independently using the Bluetooth connectivity feature.
The Asus Transformer Book T300 uses neodymium magnets as hinges to connect the keyboard and the tablet. The magnets are minuscule and replace the large locking systems that persisted in its predecessors.
