Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi review – A new Windows laptop/tablet hybrid


Laptops and tablets, tablets and laptops. Are they the future? We’ve seen plenty of convertible devices over the years, and none is more familiar with this market than Asus. The company has been transforming for years. This newest member to its lineup, the T300 Chi, further explores the growing world with a full-on PC/tablet hybrid. And it starts at just $700.


The 12.5-inch Windows 8.1 device can dock right into a keyboard, giving users the flexibility to attach and detach depending on the situation. Getting work done? Attach. Watching Netflix? Detach. Either way, you’re getting a device that comes packing the Intel Core M processor, 64GB or 128GB of storage, and 4GB or 8GB options. Some of the ports include a 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD, micro-USB 3.0 and micro-HDMI.


While the bezels are thick-is, the tablet itself looks quite nice, which is typical in the Asus camp; the company has consistently produced some attractive kit, and the T300 Chi is among its best. And the mechanism for attaching the keyboard is as easy as magnets. Just align the two connectors and everything will snap into place. And they’re strong, too, so you should have no worries about either accidentally attaching from the other.


We haven’t yet really put the Chi through its paces, but it did handle some older PC games with aplomb. To be clear, this is by no means a gaming machine, and it’ll likely be slow for video and photo editing, but it can (maybe) run more intensive tasks if you’re in a pinch. This is by no means on the level of a Core i5, but there’s seemingly enough muscle to push it out of its comfort zone every so often.


That said, we’ve found that the Chi’s battery is just decent so far, though we’ll have to spend more time with it to really get an idea of how long it’ll last. There’s that $700 model, as I mentioned, and also a model for $900. Check out our review in the video above.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
