All-Aluminum ASUS Transformer Book T300LA-DH51T is a hybrid ultra portable notebook and tablet that offers power and flexibility that will let you do even more than your daily computing. You can change from the tablet mode to laptop mode in only seconds. 13.3 inch Asus T300 has a solid build with metallic finish, a very modern design that makes it quite an eye-candy.

4th generation Intel Core i5-4200U processor at 1.6GHz speed, 4 GB DDR3 RAM and a 128 GB All-Flash Solid-State Drive.. Haswell i5 is good for both strength and efficient energy use, 4 GB RAM is sufficient to multitask smoothly and All-Flash SSD means extremely quick boot-ups and response times in any program or app you're running. It also comes with 3GB ASUS Cloud based WebStorage to save and access files on whatever device and wherever there is internet access.

13.3 inch FHD IPS multi-touch display at 1920x1080 pixel resolution with 178 viewing angle is very responsive and intuitive, offers beautiful picture quality and sharper texts. Sound quality is way better than what one would expect from such a small machine- clearer sound, wider audio range and deeper bass through bigger speakers and sound system that make movies, songs and games fun.

Keyboard is full-size with a responsive large touchpad and works wirelessly when you detach it from the secreen. Both the multi-touch touchscreen and touchpad are awesome to use with Windows 8, which can be upgraded to Windows 8.1 through the Microsoft store and it is free.

Haswell processor makes sure you get around 8 hours of battery life in normal use from its Lithium ion battery and you have the auto data back-up function when the battery level goes below 5%. Super Hybrid Engine II allows for up to two weeks of standby times in hibernation mode.

Silver aluminum ASUS Transformer Book weighs only 3.7 pounds in the laptop mode (tablet is 2.4lbs) and is just 0.94 inches thick. 13.3 inch screen makes it ideal for both portability and productivity. It has a USB 3.0 port for much faster data transfers and uses the 802.11 a/g/n for better wireless connectivity.

Verdict: On the negative side, this ASUS hybrid doesn't have a backlit keyboard, RAM/SSD seem to be fixed- they can't be expanded and it is probably not for the most advanced 3D games but for power, speed, flexibility, great looks, build quality, durability, battery life, picture and sound quality, portability, lightweight and compact size, it certainly is one of the best 2-in-1 ultra portable systems in the market. Asus Transformer Book T300LA-DH51T is a superior machine that we highly recommend for those that are in the market for a high-class portable hybrid.
