Transformer Book T300 Chi GoldA little over a week ago, Microsoft announced the Surface Pro 3, the latest tablet that would form part of the company’s Surface lineup of Windows-based tablets. It will big enough to be considered a threat to laptops, and thin and light enough to be used as a laptop, it felt like a win-win situation. Well it looks like ASUS thinks so as well as they have recently unveiled a similar-ish sort of product as well: the ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi.

According to ASUS, they are claiming that the Transformer Book T300 Chi will be the world’s thinner 12.5-inch detachable tablet. Given its screen size and the fact that it is detachable from its keyboard, it certainly sounds like ASUS could be giving Microsoft a run for their money. The tablet will sport a 12.5-inch display with a resolution of 2,560×1,440.

The tablet will also feature “next-gen” Intel Core processors, LTE connectivity for those who want internet on the go but don’t always have access to WiFi hotspots, and a keyboard dock. Give that with its keyboard dock it only measures 14.3mm, it is pretty damn impressive. The tablet portion alone will measure a little more than half at 7.3mm, which once again is mighty impressive as far as tablets are concerned.

Unfortunately ASUS did not mention as to when we might be able to look forward to the Transformer Book T300 Chi’s release, or how much it will cost, but you can be sure we will be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for more information regarding that. In the meantime what do you guys make of this? Could it be worth your consideration, especially over the Surface Pro 3?
