World’s thinnest ASUS Transformer Book T300Chi, now available in the Philippines

Geeks, ASUS Philippines has recently unveiled the ASUS Transformer Book T300Chi, a razor-thin 2-in-1 Windows detachable, that features a powerful laptop and a handy tablet in one. Powered by the new Intel Core M processor, Transformer Book Chi is fast but silent made possible by a fanless design and it only measures 1.65cm when docked making it to be the world’s thinnest laptop.

Aside from being amazingly thin, Transformer Book Chi has a sophisticated feel featuring its all-aluminum unibody design with edges enhanced with diamond-cut chamfering that highlights its metallic body. Transforming from a laptop to a handy tablet is made possible by a magnetic hinge mechanism using the world’s most powerful magnetic material – neodymium. The comfortable, highly-ergonomic keyboard is connected via Bluetooth, with a working range of up to 20m.
