Hands-on with the super-slim Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi (pictures)

Impossibly thin at just 7.3mm in tablet mode, this 12.5-inch two-in-one from Asus is turning heads at Computex in Taiwan.

The Asus Chi feels a little unwieldy in one hand due to the length, but it's not very heavy. I reckon it's just slightly heavier than the iPad Air (but this is just a guess, mind you).

The rear matte surface gives the tablet a surprisingly good grip.

This is the only port on the Chi. It looks like a micro-USB port and not the DisplayPort that I guessed it had.

There's also a rear camera.

The keyboard is razor-thin too.

This is the Chi's charging port.

Asus hasn't yet announced a release date for the Chi, or any prices. Don't expect a bargain though.

There's quite a heft to the keyboard, and is weighted to the top.
