  • Elegant design
  • Vibrant and rich display


  • Poor audio
  • No full size USB port
  • Micro-HDMI

Bottom Line

While stylish and portable the lack of full size USB port makes this devices lose points in the connectivity department and the audio leaves much to be desired.

The ASUS Transformer Book Chi T300CHI-F1-DB is a bestselling 2015 12.5-inch convertible laptop that received positive reviews for its elegant design, vibrant display, detachable Bluetooth keyboard, and longer battery life than its siblings. However, it’s audio and battery life are underwhelming compared to competitors, and there is no full-size USB port. All in all the T300CHI-F1-DB is a solidly built convertible offering you the power of a windows notebook and the convenience of a tablet. It looks like a premium machine but carries a low price tag, and can meet most of the needs of a basic user.

    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.

    For browsing, word processing, and multimedia, the T300 Chi works wonderfully as it is responsive and more than capable for common everyday tasks.

    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.

    This hybrid laptop finally gets things right with a thin and light design, and a vivid high-res display that'll steal your breath away.
