The best laptops are not always the ones that needs you to break the bank in the sum of about $1300, there are laptops on the market you can purchase for half that price and still get high quality performance. When I recommend laptops on this site,rarely will you see me display a laptop that rivals an expensive gaming desktop. Yes,those expensive laptops have the best hardware that's assimilated into one, but often times the average consumer just want a laptop to perform functional mundane tasks, like surf the net,view emails and interact in social media. Since I'm a advocate for the consumer because I myself is a consumer, the nod for your next laptop buy is the Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi.
The ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi has a nice sleek compact aluminum build, if you're a frequent reader of my website,you know I have a passionate love affair with all things compact,thin and simplistic in its design. The Asus Transformer Book Chi is a touchscreen laptop with a detachable screen,yes its safe to say this is hybrid device as you can make the ASUS Transformer Book Chi portable simply by leaving the keyboard at home morphing the device into a tablet.
The hardware is nothing short of being impressive,Intel Core M as its processor with a 2GHz Turbo-boost,4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD. It have everything you'll need in output ports,USB 3.0, Micro HDMI, it has a SD Card reader which for me is probably the most underrated feature on any laptop.
My only gripe with this particular model is there is only 128 of SSD storage,which probably explains why it features a SD Card reader.And would love to see at least 8GB of RAM, even with the low-end model laptops that's on the market 8GB is now becoming standard.
The price of the ASUS Transformer Book Chi retails for a reasonable price at $669 on Amazon.
