    Previous Transformer models are generally bulkier than the laptop models due to the detachable element. The latest Transformer Book Chi series have eliminated this constraint. Consumers who likes using a Windows tablet but still yearns for the conventiona...

  • In a lot of ways, the T300 Chi is the Transformer I've always wanted. It has a decent-sized screen with a high pixel density, and it's powered by a Core M processor that splits the difference between Atom and ultrabook chips. And, true to its name, it ca...

    Good: Svelte chassis. Clamshell mode is balanced. Screen's magnetic latch and hinge are very stable. Fanless design, thanks to Intel Core M processor. Performance similar to that of a Core i5-equipped tablet.

    Bad: Micro ports mean dongles for everything. Can't charge tablet via USB. Bluetooth keyboard needs to be charged separately. Short depth on trackpad. AC adapter's barrel connector fits in headset jack. Hidden media card slot. Bloatware

    The pricey Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi is a very thin, elegant-looking detachable-hybrid tablet that makes some major concessions in the name of portability....

  • Good: Flexible use modes of fully detachable tablet, Longlife keyboard dock, Thin, wellbuilt chassis, Completely silent

    Bad: Battery life, Screen glare can be distracting, Occasional delay in using keyboard after waking system

    Tablets and laptops are often used for different purposes. Even so, there are also many days when someone might want the flexibility of a tablet, along with the convenience of using the keyboard and touchpad found on a laptop, without the need to carry tw...

    Good: Beautiful premium aluminum design is super thin and lightweight, excellent 12.5inch WQHD display, the keyboard is included, versatile formfactor, comes with free upgrade to Windows 10, runs fanless, solid performance, compatible with an optional stylus, k...

    Bad: 16:10 aspect ratio is a bit awkward – especially for tablet use, at about 5 hours on a charge – battery is a bit disappointing

    We can't help but compare the T300 to the new MacBook. In which case, priced $400 less than the comparable new MacBook with similar specs, it really offers a lot of value for the money. Pair the system with a subscription to Office 365 University and...

    Good: Better battery life than QHD model, Elegant aluminum design, Runs cooler, Detachable Bluetooth keyboard

    Bad: Slower CPU, Poor audio, No full-size USB port

    The $699 Transformer Book T300 Chi is the better version of Asus' two tablet-laptop hybrids, but its battery life is still a little underwhelming....

  • Asus)The T300 weighs in at 3.2 pounds, which is divided almost evenly between the tablet and the keyboard. That's twice the weight of Microsoft's 10.8-inch Surface 3 and heftier than the much pricier 13-inch Lenovo Yoga 3 (2.6 pounds) and even the MacBoo...

  • Good: Beautiful design, Thin and lightweight, High-res display

    Bad: Low-end specs for laptop, Full-size USB usage requires an adapter, Extremely top heavy, Dismal speakers

    The Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi makes for a fine Windows tablet, but don't go tossing out your laptop anytime soon...

    Good: Lightweight and very thin, Attractive and well-made tablet, Respectable CPU performance, Beautiful WQHD resolution display with wide gamut, Bright backlight, Low latency, responsive hardware, USB 3.0, MicroSD reader, and HDMI-out, Fanless design

    Bad: Wobbly magnet hinges, Keyboard dock provides no additional features or ports, Keyboard keys have shallow travel, Reduced performance on batteries, Unable to maintain full Turbo Boost under constant stress, Display could benefit from calibration, Right sid...

    Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi For browsing, word processing, and multimedia, the T300 Chi works wonderfully as it is responsive and more than capable for common everyday tasks. Users will be impressed by the slim design, enormous amount of RAM for a tab...

    Date: 3/23/2015

    Good: Very thin for a 12.5-inch Windows tablet, Excellent magnetic hinge, Premium look and feel, Comfortable keyboard, Perky performance, Reasonable price

    Bad: Disappointing battery life, A little heavy for an ultrabook, Big and awkward as a tablet

    Asus' impressively thin 2-in-1 looks and feels great and starts at just $699 (with an upscale model at $899). But battery life is short for a Core M device, and the 12.5-inch screen makes a slightly unwieldy tablet. Read More…...

    Good: It's really thin, Solid build quality, Fast performance

    Bad: Below average battery life, Trackpad is too small, Connecting anything requires an adapter, Keyboard hinge doesn't rotate far enough

    More times than not, the Verge score is based on the average of the subscores below. However, since this is a non-weighted average, we reserve the right to tweak the overall score if we feel it doesn't reflect our overall assessment and price of the produ...

  • Good: The least expensive computer I've ever used that made me feel like a high-powered executive. Yes, that's a backhanded compliment—but it's still a compliment! This machine looks good, and it looks professional, Advertisement, Advertisement, Seriously great...

    Bad: The speakers sound like a bad joke. So. Ridiculously. Quiet. The primary reason I like tablets is so I can stick that screen right up in my maw while watching movies and catch every last detail. But I can't even make out dialogue with this poor excuse for...

    No. You may like the idea of this computer, but I doubt you’ll appreciate the reality—not when your money could be so much better spent. If you want portability and performance, you can get it in a thin Core i3 or i5 laptop like the $800 Dell XPS 13, or a...

    Good: The Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi makes good use of Intel's low-power Core M processor, and includes a keyboard dock that works attached or remotely. The screen has a better-than-HD resolution

    Bad: Performance and battery life is still not on par with what other slim hybrids and laptops deliver. Some design quirks, such as a poorly placed power button, can get in the way

    This good-looking fanless hybrid works as a slim Windows tablet or an ultra-portable laptop, but still suffers from the same awkward marriage of base and screen as many hybrids....
