ASUS also showed off its other notebooks, namely the T300FA, which you can buy for Php32,995 and the G551JW, which is available at Php69,995.
The ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi is a gorgeous precision-crafted all-aluminum design, it offers unprecedented sophistication and elegance in a 2-in-1. A recipient of 2015 CES Innovation Award, it is powered by the all-new Intel Core M processor for outstanding performance and power efficiency. T300 Chi is a compact 12.5-inch model with all-day battery life for on-the-go productivity. It has a clear IPS display with FHD 1920×1080 resolution for detailed and vivid visuals.
The flexibility and power of Transformer Book Chi means that users can now work and play more efficiently, with no need to carry multiple bulky devices — Chi can do anything you need, whenever you need it.
The T300 Chi is distinguished by their razor-thin profiles and quiet performance, made possible by the fanless design. It only measures just 1.65cm when docked, which is even thinner than an Apple Macbook Air.
As well as being amazingly slim, Transformer Book Chi has a luxurious and sophisticated feel, with precision craftsmanship and engineering expertise combined to realize the seamless all-aluminum unibody design. The edges of Chi are enhanced with diamond-cut chamfering, adding brilliant highlights to the elegant metallic body.
Chi’s instant, seamless transformation between handy tablet and powerful laptop is made possible by the uniquely-designed magnetic hinge mechanism, which uses powerful neodymium — the world’s most powerful magnetic material — precisely arranged to ensure secure, reliable and fuss-free docking, every time. The comfortable, highly-ergonomic keyboard is connected via Bluetooth, with a working range of up to 20m.
Transformer Book Chi Series uses in-plane switching (IPS) displays enhanced with ASUS TruVivid technology, giving wide viewing angles with amazing clarity and brightness. And with up to FHD (1920×1080) resolution, users will enjoy incredibly crisp and detailed visuals.
Chi’s displays also have an sRGB color gamut — 20% wider than the gamut of standard displays — that gives richer, more vivid and more accurate color reproduction. Colors are enhanced even more with ASUS Splendid technology, which optimizes display settings for a variety of different usage modes.
ASUS SonicMaster audio technology gives Transformer Book Chi Series the edge over the competition when it comes to sound quality. The superior engineering and cleverly-designed software delivers immersive sound that is rich, powerful and distortion-free, with clear vocals and a full-range frequency response.
Powered by the new Intel Core M processor in the T300 Chi, Transformer Book Chi Series delivers smooth performance for all daily activities, whether for work or entertainment. The incredibly power-efficient Intel processors allow Chi users to enjoy up to all-day battery life with no performance compromises. This superb power-efficiency, combined with an advanced thermal management design from the ASUS engineering team, means that Chi needs no fans to keep cool. The clever fanless design enables Chi to run silently, while still delivering better performance than other currently-available Intel Core M-powered devices.
Ultra-fast, responsive all-solid-state storage is used for the T300 Chi — giving performance that’s up to nine times faster than traditional hard disks — so users will spend less time waiting and more time being productive or having fun.
Transformer Book Chi features convenient, fast USB 3.0 connectivity — via a Type B USB port — for data transfers that are up to ten times faster than USB 2.0.
The faster Intel Core M 5Y71 (1.2GHz) variant goes for Php46,995, while the Intel Core M 5Y10 (0.8GHz) model retails at Php39,995. The former carries 8GB of RAM and the later is equipped with 4GB of RAM, while the rest of the specs remain the same for both, according to ASUS Philippines.
