Asus Transformer Book TX300 is a Windows 8 hybrid laptop
Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2013, with the ASUS Transformer BOOK TX300.
Now we've seen this tablet-laptop hybrid machine before in concept form but this is the first time we get a peek at the finish article.
So let's take a look at what's going on.
So first they talk about the display, because it's something that it's quite impressive.
This is a 13.3-inch panel and it has a 1080p resolution.
It's looking very crisp and clear,
I think I've seen brighter panels before in my life but I'm quite impressed at the clarity and generally it's looking very colorful.
I think in movies, photos, it's all gonna look quite good on this screen.
Take it as a whole, this device feels quiet like it's not too heavy and if I close it and spin it on its side, you can see, it's not really that thick either.
I don't think you'll have any trouble logging this around with you all day.
The solid state storage inside the tablet section and that gets confined with a mechanical hard drive that sits inside the laptop when you plugged it back in.
The keyboard is backlit and the touch pad
has this nice large area.
So hopefully, it's gonna be quite comfortable to use.
Or of course you can use the touch screen on the top.
Taking a look around the side is a healthy number of ports on show here.
You got two USB 2.0, you got mini display, there's a fold out Ethernet ports while over the other side you got SD card slots.
But Lewis who's tells me this is the final product, it can't tell me anything about pricing or availability at the moment.
So Intel have actually getting a hold of this thing, we just gonna have to stay tuned.
Windows 8 certainly has a little potential but I'm yet to see one of this
hybrid machines that really blows my socks off.
ASUS has form when it comes to making this kind of device on Android, so let's hope that this could be the one to make my dreams come true.
