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.
