Asus: Tablets That Inspire
The one thing we’ve noticed with these new tablets on the market is their innovative engineering and versatility. They are built to impress and they do, especially the Transformer Book T300 Chi from Asus, a tablet/laptop that has beauty and function all in one package. It was by far the most daring and appealing new device thanks to it’s ultra slim and lightweight design. Made from all aluminum it weighs just 1.6 pounds and is only 0.17 inches thick, making it paper thin without sacrificing quality or durability. It has a 12.5″ screen with a 2,560 x 1,440 display in 235 ppi for stunning clarity whether your reading or watching videos and is built with the latest Core M processor from Intel, so it can handle multiple tasks.
Acer also has some inventive and inspiring new tablet models to offer consumers, most notably their Aspire R13 Series and S7 Ultrabook. The R13 series is the cream of the crop here thanks to it’s elite engineering. It has a one-of-a-kind hinge that allows the screen to rotate a full 180° for a wide assortment of uses and angles. A perfect feature for a Windows operating system known for its premium gaming and streaming capabilities. The 13.3″ touchscreen is a work of art, giving users sharp, bright colors and images. It’s also designed using the latest 5th generation Intel Core processors, so it functions like a true notebook while giving you all the perks that come with a tablet.

This model has 2 unique features to make it stand out: it’s screen tilts back 180° so it can lay flat on any surface and there’s a hotkey so you can rotate the view 180° to share with others if your watching a video.
