If someone would have told me that I would have fell in love with a 2-in-1 device by ASUS, I would have told them they were BONKERS! Well, I’m sure someone in my circle is wishing they did because this ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi 2-in-1 device packs a powerful punch!

When this beauty arrived in my mailbox on Wednesday, I claimed it as an early birthday gift. I’ve been itching to get some new technology in my hands for the past few months and this device was one that was able to really grab my interest. Not only is this device a beautiful piece of work with an all-aluminum exterior with diamond cut edges, it also has Windows 8.1 pre-installed.

It’s a TOTAL lifestyle device and lives up to its tagline “Go. Play. Create. Work.” I was able to do some quick online banking, play a quick STEAM powered game with its fast processor and detach the tablet from the mobile dock to watch a movie on a quick car ride last weekend.

It’s a great device for anyone looking for a lightweight but powerful device that will keep you powered for up to 8 hours on a full charge.

5 stars!
