ASUS today unveiled world’s thinnest Windows tablet, Transformer Book Chi in UAE, The beautifully-engineered, razor-thin 2-in-1 Windows detachables tablets, offer unrivalled convenience of a powerful laptop that transforms seamlessly into a handy tablet whenever needed.
The Chi range comprises three models, headed by the flagship 12.5-inch T300 Chi — recipient of a 2015 CES Innovation Award — that is powered by the all-new Intel Core M processor for outstanding performance and power efficiency. T100 Chi is a compact 10.1-inch model with all-day battery life, and T90 is an incredibly-light 8.9-inch powerhouse for on-the-go productivity. All models have a bright, crisp and clear IPS display with up to WQHD 2560 x 1440 resolution for detailed and vivid visuals.
According to ASUS, all Chi models are distinguished by their razor-thin profiles and quiet performance, made possible by the fanless design. T100 Chi is the world’s thinnest Windows tablet at an incredible 7.2mm, T90 Chi has the world’s thinnest 8.9-inch tablet at a mere 7.5mm, and T300 Chi measures just 1.65cm when docked, which the company claims is even thinner than an Apple Macbook Air.
Transformer Book Chi offers 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.
Chi uses IPS displays that is further enhanced with ASUS TruVivid technology, giving wide viewing angles with amazing clarity and brightness. And with up to WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution and a class-leading pixel density of 235ppi especially in the T300 Chi.
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 delivers immersive sound that is rich, powerful and distortion-free, with clear vocals and a full-range frequency response.
Ultra-fast, responsive all-solid-state storage is used in all Chi models, 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.
ASUS Transformer Book Chi series will be available soon across the UAE and the retail price for T300 Chi is AED 2,699.
