Asus’ Chi series manages to impress us through an impressively slim design, but there are also some models with a more than decent spec sheet, able to deal even with some of the most demanding tasks and even some casual gaming.
Today we’re talking about the Asus T300 Chi RHM5T06, one of the latest additions to this line-up. Thanks to its convertible design, it can be an excellent choice for anybody looking for a compact device, working both as a tablet and a laptop.
It’s powered by an Intel Core M-5Y10 processor, running at just 0.8 GHz, delivering enough processing power for general tasks, like checking email or browsing the Web. It has 4 GB of DDR3L RAM, in order to smoothly run multiple applications and keep a lot of browser tabs open at once.
In terms of graphics, the Asus T300 Chi RHM5T06 is loaded with an Intel HD Graphics 5300 on-processor chip, designed for low-voltage processors, like the M-5Y10. Still, it’s able to quickly render high quality images and stream videos, with less power consumption.
As for the storage, the laptop comes with an 128 GB solid state drive. For many users, the capacity might be a bit low, but since this type of drive has no moving parts, it provides faster start-up times and data access.
The laptop has two USB 3.0 ports, through which you can connect an external HDD or peripherals, like a mouse. It also has a microUSB 3.0 port and a media reader, supporting microSD memory cards.
The connectivity department is represented by a micro HDMI output, so you can connect it to a bigger display, a Bluetooth 4.0 interface, so you can sync it with compatible devices, like smartphones or tablets, and, of course, next-gen wireless, three times faster than Wireless-N.
Moving on to the display, the Asus T300 Chi RHM5T06 is using a 12.5″ LCD touch screen, with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Due to the reduced size, the pixel density will be impressive, allowing you to enjoy some of your favorite movies in great conditions.
It also has a built-in HD webcam, with array microphone, making chatting with your friends and family, over specific apps, like Skype or Hangouts, very easy.
The design is one of this laptop’s biggest pluses. It measures just 0.63″ in thickness and weighs 3.2 lbs, so we can call it an ultracompact model, which doesn’t require that much space and provides improved portability. It’s definitely a very stylish choice, which will impress anybody.
The Asus T300 Chi RHM5T06 is available for $659.99, with a pre-installed copy of Windows 10, alongside a basic software package, including a 30-day trial of Microsoft Office 365 Personal.
