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, its 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 small price tag, and can meet most of the needs of a basic user.
