Fresh from the ASUS press conference at CES 2015 is this hands-on video of the Transformer Book T90 Chi. This is the Atom-based (Z3775) 8.9-inch tablet and dock that weighs just 850 grams together and starts at $299.

it looks like a tidy combination and the pen (no stowage) is going to make this a really interesting all-round UMPC. We expect the pen to be an additional cost but even if this comes in at $350 it’s not a bad deal. A 64GB SSD might cost you another $50 so budget $400 if you want the full specs. Soeakign of which we’ve found out a few more. Here’s a full specification set.

  • Windows 8.1 32-bit
  • 8.9in WXGA 1280 x 800 IPS display
  • Quad-core Intel® Atom™ Z3775 processor
  • 32/64GB eMMC
  • 2GB RAM
  • 241 x 137.5 x 7.5/16.5mm (tablet/docked)
  • 0.40kg (tablet) 0.75kg (docked)
  • 1 year Office 365
  • Micro USB (Possibly USB 3.0)
  • MicroSD slot.
  • Stereo speakers.
  • Headset jack.

    This. This is the device I have been waiting for since intel announced the new generation of Atom. What on earth took so long!?!?

    Ok, i am intrigued! My first thought went to the venerable Fujitsu U1010, though clearly this one is larger.

    Needs a nub for a mouse. The digitizer pen isn’t good enough for mouse purposes especially without a built-in holder.
