ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi Officially Launched, Intel Core M 5Y10 Variant Starts at P39,990

PC and smartphone manufacturer ASUS recently introduced the ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi in the Philippines at an intimate event held at Skye in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

The ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi, earlier introduced in June 2014 at Computex, is among the slimmest 2-in-1 convertibles in the world, and are deemed superior than other convertibles such as the Microsoft Surface and the Lenovo Yoga series. It runs Windows 8.1 (upgradeable to Windows 10) and uses the new Intel Core M chip - one of the first machines to come equipped with it in fact - that's designed for convertibles.

One of the major selling points of the T300 Chi is its gorgeous and thin design. It has a wireless neodymium magnetic removable Bluetooth keyboard - that docks on and off on demand, and is apparently thinner than Apple's MacBook Air (by a slim 0.5mm margin). It also has an all-aluminum diamond-cut unibody, making the premium convertible feel all the better.

Specs-wise, the T300 Chi sports a 12.5-inch 1080p IPS Full HD display, 4GB of RAM (up to 8GB), a 128GB SSD, and a Core M 5Y71 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. It weights 1.43 kgs, and measures 317.8 x 191.6 x 7.6 ~ 16.5 mm. Perfomance on paper should be between an i3 and an i5, but performance should be sufficient enough to handle casual graphics-intensive games.

Also launched alongside the T300 Chi is the ASUS ROG G551 gaming laptop featuring an Intel Core i7-4710HQ processor, a 15.6-inch FHD display, 16GB of RAM + NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M with 4GB GDDR5 VRAM, a 1TB HDD storage, and weighs in at 2.7 kgs.

The ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi is now available for P46,995 for the 5Y71 variant, and P39,995 for the 5Y10 variant. The ASUS ROG G551 on the other hand is available for P69,995.
