Powerful laptop, handy tablet
Let's admit it: carrying both a tablet and a laptop is a nuisance. Chi is a 2-in-1, which means exactly what it says - it's a Windows laptop with a keyboard that detaches, turning it into a Windows tablet. Two devices, in one beautiful package. It's a simple idea that's elegant and convenient, too. Need to work? It's a powerful laptop. Time to relax? Detach the keyboard and it's a handy tablet. No fuss, no hassle.

Thinner. Lighter
Transformer Book T100 Chi is razor-thin and feather-light, with a tablet that's just 7.2mm thin and weighs a mere 570g. Even with the keyboard attached, it's still a slender 13.2mm and weighs just 1.08kg, so you'll never have an excuse to leave your T100 Chi at home. Working (or playing!) on-the-go has never been so easy.

Luxury. Elegance. Purity
Transformer Book T100 Chi may look smooth, slim and sophisticated, but it's tough at heart. The body and display are both precision-crafted, all-aluminum one-piece designs that eliminates the need for ugly seams and screws. This also means that even though it's exceptionally thin and light, there's no loss of strength. Chi takes real life in its stride, without missing a beat.

Picture Perfect
Experience beautifully-clear and bright images with T100 Chi's ASUS TruVivid display, engineered using direct bonding to reduce reflections and give sharper, more vivid colors under any lighting conditions. With Chi, images look so good you'll think they're real. And with IPS technology for super-wide viewing angles, Chi really is a feast for your eyes.

Immersive Audio
Chi banishes the idea that small size means small sound. Exclusive ASUS SonicMaster technology combined with powerful stereo speakers gives you crystal-clear audio with deep, rich bass. Now you can enjoy the ultimate sound experience - anywhere!

You won't find anything on sale that does that. Both MS & Google have "banned" their sale. You'll need to do it yourself.

These are pretty good for the price, so heat added. You'll want to get Windows 10 on them though.

Yes - it's only about the price for me on this. And the 64gb eMMC. For the price, this is a bargain - not that I intend to buy one...:)

The screen is a big bonus as well. Main reason why I kept mine rather than sell it on.
Also, Poundland have excellent cases for these at the moment - see HERE for pics (not listed online)

Probably only true of high street outlets. Far East suppliers and their European warehouses are littered with dual boot Windows and Android devices.

Not as far as I know. W7 doesn't have the drivers required.

Hi everyone, this deal is tempting to me because I'm looking for a mini laptop to replace/add to my Thinkpad X201t(which still works but has a crap battery). I was more oriented towards chromebooks, to the c100pa initially ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0107N7WT6/ ) but don't want to spend over £170. So was thinking about the C201pa ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0107N7X5E/ ) or the N22 ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01GCNZ79C/ ). I have a galaxy note 10.1 2012 edition and a galaxy tab pro 8.4 and was thinking that I might be fine in selling them and then buying just one of those chromebooks( since I have a note 4 for quick notes taking I don't feel I need the note 10.1 anymore and BTW my old thinkpad has also the wacom digitizer with its pen just in case). I didn't like the idea of a windows tablet but this one seems really good on specs and price and might be able to install linux or a sort of chromebook-like-os on it..Therefore, I wanted to hear your thoughts on it and about the tablet,especially if someone has it already..

Nothing more recent than 2.5 years ago? Would be interesting to see how MS or Google currently justify the suggestion.

You could always replace the battery on the X201?

Replace the battery on the X201! It'll be £15-20. Way better than this piece of crap in this deal. Asus are a bunch of wayne kerrs as well. If you replace the X201 with this you're mad.

It looks good: large storage, full HD display, very light. But the choice to only install 2GB of RAM seems strange, that is an obvious bottleneck. I would rather spend a bit more and get 4GB.
#17
No no the X201t will live forever!But when going out for travelling or outside home I still need a machine with a good battery life. And BTW the battery for my X201t they might cost around £25-35, for the more powerful version, which anyway seems not to make a huge difference as read on Internet..it won't last more than 4 hours. I would be glad if someone would point me to a real reliable battery for my x201t, anyway even the original costly lenovo one wouldn't last much long considering its old age(2010). Example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B008CNJGIE/

And also my x201t has Linux mint on it running pretty well. I wanted a ultra light mini laptop and that's why I was oriented to those 11.6 chromebooks or at an Intel 2in1 but only if really good and at similar price..and want a real 10 hours battery life..so any thoughts people?would make sense to sell one/both my galaxy tablet(s) to add that T100chi as companion to my x201t and as a partial replacement also to my android tablets?
#19
I read on the seller's website within the comments thato it comes with an active stylus.That''s good.But it doesn't have standard USB ports(micro) and the Bluetooth keyboard and tablet part they need to be charged separately and you only have one cable included.That's annoying. Any owner of the tablet here?Starting thinking that the chromebook might be the best option for me..

8 can be made to almost like 7 with the install of Start Menu, then block the W10 update with GWX or whatever it's called. I occasionally go into the metro interface by mistake but other than that it is the same as 7.

Nice to see another person giving the finger to Windows 10. I hate the way MS have forced the update through, and how it's all about data mining, and cloud BS, and updates you can't turn off. It's bad enough that google and social media are making money off every shred of info about me, but now an entire OS is doing that aswell.

Seems a good deal, nice screen too. 64gb memory a bonus, I have a 32gb win 10 tablet/laptop and Windows does take a fair old chunk of it, it got down to around 3gb spare when it did a major update the other day.

I'm sure it's Intel and Microsoft who ensure these devices are crippled so as only to run Windows with just 2GB RAM

My take on this is pretty simple - the price is right.

I'd rather have a Chromebook - but for the majority who are wedded to Windows, other than the 2gb RAM, I doubt you'll find anything better for the price. I'm no Asus sycophant , I can assure you, but this is cheap for what you are getting.
#28
Does anyone has this and might report his thoughts?The FHD resolution,the 64gb and the rest of specs seems quite good value for the price..but how good this machine is in real use?And how many hours can you squeeze out from the battery with the average use?I would probably install a Linux distribution on it,that's also to be considered.
#29
The keyboard setup on this is awful, the other T100 models like the HA don't have the same nonsense seperate charger setup and also have proper full size usb ports in the keyboard section. Meaning you don't have to use micro usb adapters to plug in your phone or memory stick. Otherwise it's fine!

This is a crippled to due Atom 32bit and 2gb ram. Better buy Microsoft Surface or similar with better cpu and more ram.

Depends what you want to do with it. For long battery life, Netflix, football video streaming, FM2015 on the train, turn-based strategy games, this is perfectly fine. If you want to play Rainbox six siege. Yeah. Sure. But... for £130?

First of all I would say if you want a Chromebook, buy a Chromebook. The whole point is that it is easy, and installing Chromium OS is not easy (and it will probably never run the Android emulation either). The same goes for Android: yes, there is Jide OS, but again installing it is not always successful.

That being said, Windows devices are very flexible, and you can probably achieve everything you want with it. But is it worth the effort?

MrPuddington, thanks for your comment.I'm IT literate enough to be able to install firmwares and OSs and to do other things, I'm not concerned on that aspect. I use Linux on my X201t and if needed I got win 8.1 in virtual machine. The thing is that my X201t will never be suitable for travelling,even with a new battery, as it won't do more than 4-5 hours in the best case with the enhanced 12++ battery..and is not lightweight as I'd like.On the other hand, my Note 10.1 was better and now my tab pro 8.4 is perfect for mobility, but not as complete as OS and with no same comfort of typing even with the best external wireless keyboard,not comparable to the X201t or to a proper mini sub-notebook,likewise a chromebook. I didn't like the idea of a Windows 2in1 after having used the system for years and promoted them as Intel Rep. I tried Chromebooks and probably would be my better choice. I was tempted by the idea of converting the t100chi to a linux/Chromebook machine whilst keeping some decent hw specs,but I still want the sleekness of Chrome OS and longest battery possible..so if that won't be achievable with this T100CHI then I would probably go to the Asus c201pa which seems having all I need(probably preferable to the c100 touchscreen version without fuffing too much about the convenience of having a touchscreen for android apps etc.)..

I've had one since the last deal when they were £135 and very happy with mine. I had a Linx 10 before this and this is miles ahead in build quality and the screen is fantastic.

I stuck a 128gb sdxc card in mine and stuck my OneDrive account on there and all Win10 apps so plenty of storage space. I was dubious about the keyboard but since it's first charge I haven't had to charge it! The keyboard really isn't an issue and just use a smart phone charger is you need to charge that at the same time as the tablet.

I use mine for when away from home and out in the garden and have it sat in the kitchen when at home mainly for web browsing and emails and it's perfect for light use. Also got games installed like GTA San Andreas and Asphalt 8 just don't expect it to play Forza!
#40
I already have a Lenovo Miix 300, so don't really need this, but something tells me the build quality might be better, and having double the storage (without having to resort to SD cards) and also full HD would be useful. Can't decide :) To anyone on the fence in general, these machines feel better than the sum of their parts, if that makes sense. I use my Lenovo for all my day to day stuff (emails, web, Facebook, YouTube, Word etc.). I've not once thought "this is slow". I used to use my iPad for reading/surfing, but now I use the Lenovo instead (equally as good in tablet or laptop mode). Windows 10 seems to be improving with each update too.
