Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi: Australian Review

We love 2 in 1 tablet / laptops here at Gizmodo. They’re super-convenient, usually very sleek, and still handle all the regular tasks that you need an ol’-fashioned PC for. The Transformer Book Chi is a laptop that’s already thinner than a MacBook Air for your normal work day, but then — if you don’t need its keyboard half, if you’re just watching videos or reading a book — you can tear it in half.


Asus ZenWatch: Australian Hands-On

At IFA 2014 in Berlin, Asus joined Motorola, Samsung and LG in launching an Android Wear smartwatch.

So you want a laptop that turns into a tablet. No kidding! Plenty of people are jazzed by the idea of having a slate for sharing, plus a solid keyboard for typing. And the new Asus T300 Chi sure looks like a great pick: from just $1299 Australian you get a great looking PC that — both halves combined — is thinner than a MacBook Air. But that’s not quite the whole story.

Intel's RealSense 3D Laptop Camera: Australian Hands On

Intel’s RealSense 3D camera is like having a next-generation Kinect inside your laptop. It essentially turns your workspace into a holodeck, complete with sophisticated gesture controls and a face-tracker that can sense your current mood. In addition to various productivity scenarios, the technology is also being pitched at gamers. Indeed, one of the first laptops to launch with the device will be Asus’ Republic Of Gamers-branded G771.

Asus Transformer Book Chi T300: Australian Pricing And Availability

The Asus Transformer Book Chi T300 was arguably the most impressive 2-in-1 Windows laptop at CES 2015. Boasting a 7.6mm unibody chassis, a 12.5-inch detachable WQHD IPS display (2560×1440 pixels), a fanless design with 128GB SSD storage and an Intel Core M processor, the flagship model is significantly thinner, lighter and more powerful than any of its predecessors. Last night, Asus announced Australian pricing and availability during the product’s official launch. Here are the details.


Can A Mini-PC Replace A Console In The Living Room?

We have all been eagerly awaiting Steam OS and the inevitable flood of affordable console like mini-PCs that will let us play our existing library of games in the living room.

But can they compete with your existing console?

There are times when you just need a bit of extra grunt from your laptop, whether it’s for a bit of workday number-crunching or a spot of after-work gaming on the sly. Asus’s ZenBook UX303LN is a thin and light Ultrabook, but has more than its fair share of extra graphical and computing power.
