The ASUS T300 with Haswell was kind of a known factor back in June but today ASUS made that official with the Transformer Book T300 announcement. This 13.3” 2-in-1 will benefit greatly from Haswell but it looks like ASUS haven’t done any re-design around it. It still weighs 1.9KG

As for pricing and availability, well, how about ‘unknown.’ At least we’ll get some hands-on for you at IFA over the next few days. Until then…
