ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi, 12.5", 720gm
Impressive. The Transformer Book T300 Chi 2-in-1 was introduced at Computex 2014 and finally launched at CES 2015. The incredibly thin 7.6mm tablet design is just 16.5mm thick when snapped together with the keyboard. It's a fanless 2-in-1. Available from Feb 2015
HP Split X2, 13.3", 1000gm
The Split is another entrant in the growing Windows 8 Core powered hybrid market and has a number of features similar to the Transformer Book like a keyboard dock with an extra battery and an optional 500GB HDD to complement the 128GB SSD in the tablet. The HP will be powered by a Y-series Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, offer WiDi, and HDMI port, microSD and full SD card slots and 2 USB porst (1x USB2, 1x USB3) on the keyboard dock. WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, Beats audio and front and rear are also present.
Fujitsu Stylistic Q704, 12.5", 980gm
Dell Latitude 13 7000, 13.3", 920gm
The Dell Latitude 13 7000 is a 2-in-1 dockable tablet powered by Intels Core M-5Y10a processor. The processor has a base-clock pf 800MHz with turbo-boost of up to 2GHz. The IPS Full HD 13.3" touchscreen has a digitizer interface as well as the finger touch layer. It supports almost all wireless standards with Bluetooth 4.0 WiFi a/b/g/n/ac and Miracast. The keyboard dock comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports and a mini displayport.
ASUS Transformer Book T300Fa, 12.5", 800gm
The latest Core M processor, based on 5th-gen Core, enables a lightweight and yet relatively powerful Transformer Book. The T300Fa will sit between Atom-based and Core Haswell based products. Optional hard drive in the keyboard. Key feature: Fanless tablet with a total weight of 1600 grams.
HP Envy 13 X2 2015, 13.3", 1270gm
With an integrated stand this 1.27KG tablet has many similarities with the Surface Pro 3 although this one is fanless. It's much bigger and heavier than the Pro 3 but that might be an advantage to some due to the better working space. This is almost a mini all-in-one and quite unique in the market. The Bluetooth keyboard is large and detachable, which can also be an advantage.
