Impressive. The Transformer Book Chi 2-in-1 was shown briefly at the Computex show today and although Asus didn’t say it outright, the ‘next generation’ Core processor, slick design and lack of detail in the specifications availability and pricing leads us to conclude that it’s going to be a product built around the 5th-Generation core. It means we’ll probably see this on stage a few more times before we get to see it for sale.

The incredibly thin 7.3mm tablet design is just 14.3mm thick when snapped together with the keyboard. The weight should be just as groundbreaking. The design suggests that it’s fanless too.

The 12.5-inch 2560×1440 display, 4GB RAM and SSD should provide enough for good, smooth productivity. LTE is an option.

Don’t expect too much more info out of Computex on these devices as it appears to be locked-up behind plexiglass. We’ll keep watching for further information though.

More from us. (No silly ads.)

    How does the keyboard connector work? Same as Surface? Or in a fixed angle holder type?

    It’s not fixed angle, its just like a detachable.

    I am in wonder how they made it that thin. Detachables are usually in the 20mm range when the dock and tablet is combined. This is 14.3mm…

    The rumors are its pretty light too.

    I wonder how much performance they can pull out of Broadwell if its capable of such form factors. The Y might not be much faster than Atom chips.

    This is.. thin.
    Release it this year and it will be mine :)

    I was hoping that the connector on the side was a new USB 3.1 connector, but it seems that it is just a Micro USB 2.0 connector.. (?)

    Based in information from the Intel keynote we now know it’s based on Intel Core-m CPU.; (14nm) Weight of tablet likely to be under 700 grams.

  1. Intel’s fanless mobile PC reference design is 7.2mm thin and uses Core M 14nm processor. (Updating) « Ultrabook News and the Ultrabook Database says:

    […] the Y-series too. More importantly it looks like ASUS have used the Intel reference design in their Transformer Book Chi product. Both have a 12.5-inch screen. Both use the ‘next-generation’ Intel core. One is 7.3mm […]
