Engadget Summary

On paper, the Transformer Book Chi T300 is a good deal for what it is: $899 (or less) for a super-thin tablet with a sharp screen that accepts pen input, and a keyboard dock that actually comes in the box at no extra charge (ahem, Microsoft). Still, to get the price down that low -- and to achieve a design that's "thinner than air" -- ASUS had to make all manner of compromises. The battery life is short, even compared to other systems with a similar Core M processor. At the same time, when you factor in the keyboard dock, it's heavier than other comparably specced laptops that manage to last longer on a charge. And yet, despite being bulkier, it actually has fewer ports -- in fact, there isn't a single full-sized USB socket on the entire machine, not even on the detachable dock. If you really just want a hybrid-type PC but can't spend a ton of money, this could fit the bill. But if you have any flexibility in your budget, you can probably do better.
