Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book T300FA-FE010H

78% ASUS Transformer T300 Chi 2-in-1 Review
Source: T Break English
The Transformer T300 Chi is ASUS’s latest offering, which provides the flexibility of a laptop and a tablet. You may not get the comfort of holding an iPad because of the 16:9 aspect ratio but the 12-inch device does open up some new possibilities. In all, if you’re looking for a simple Windows device to make quick work on the go, the ASUS Transformer T300 Chi seems to fit the bill very well.

The T300 Chi is an attractive and power-packed 2-in-1 that doesn't quite manage to bridge the gap between tablets and laptops. I love the gorgeous all-aluminum design and responsive detachable keyboard, but its relatively short battery life and heat management give me pause.

Disappointing battery life aside, the Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi is easily one of the best premium convertibles we've tested. Despite a low $699 starting price, the device looks and feels like a premium machine, and the hinge mechanism is top-notch, delivering a solid connection without a lot of extra bulk at the back.

The Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi represents the latest evolution in the company’s long-running line of detachable notebooks, which started with Android systems several years ago. Practice has helped refine the formula into a thin, yet functional, device that strikes a good balance between laptop and tablet usability. The base price of $699 is competitive, and the as-tested price of $899 isn’t bad.

On paper, the Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi sounds like a great combination of smart design, new components, and a very reasonable price. In person, it's not as effortless to use as I'd like, and the Intel Core M platform doesn't seem to be optimized for especially long battery life.

For work, though, it falters behind the Yoga Pro 3 with a shorter battery life and a keyboard that's great, but not as good as Lenovo's mastered AccuType keys. Likewise, the Surface Pro 3 offers a 3:2 resolution screen that's much better suited for productivity and color accurate for photography work. If what you seek is a premium machine that'll stream anything from movies to games, the Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi has your number.

Asus is that company that delivers a classy looking product for less money, and this time they've outdone themselves with a really sexy looking Ultrabook that's priced several hundred dollars below the competition. That is, as long as you like deep plum laptops. You get an aluminum casing, super slim design, a good keyboard and a good selection of ports for the price.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
