    T300 Chi Now Shipping to US!

    As of today, March 11, 2015, the T300 Chi is shipping in the U.S. from the Microsoft store. That's the good news. The bad news (for some) is that it's currently only the Signature Edition -- 1920x1080 Full HD, 5Y10 processor, 4gb ram. $699

    Buy ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC - Microsoft Store

    With any luck, the other models will start shipping soon too.

    Quick question. Would the Intel Core M-5Y10c be able to run Windows 10? I thought I read that Win10 required a minimum of 1Ghz, while the 5Y10c is 0.8 Ghz.

    Also for a 12.5" screen is there a huge difference between Full HD and WQHD? Thanks.

    EDIT: I believe the answer is yes on Windows10, because the chip is "boosted" to 2Ghz, but any input is appreciated!

    Well, I just ordered it from the MS Store. My wife doesn't need the WQHD (I don't think) and the slower chip shouldn't matter for her. If it's slow, then I can always return it to MS. I'll update the thread when they send me a shipping confirmation.

    Looks like you are our first. It will be your job to keep us informed about the new device. I expect a weekly report in my inbox by 6pm every Sunday

    Absolutely. It's actually for my wife.

    She browses, reads kindle books (hence the need for a lighter weight tablet only mode), does occasional PPT presentations, and connects to her office via VPN to do some work. It's all pretty light weight stuff (no gaming, Photoshop, large excel files...). That's why I think the 5Y10c should be good enough, but I think MS has a 45 day return policy and there is a store by my office.

    So far, my order has processed. I'll let you all know when they ship.

    45 days will be good. Hopefully you don't suffer from early adopter problems.

    From the official MS site, the requirements for Win 10 are as follows,


    'System requirements

    Basically, if your PC can run Windows 8.1, you’re good to go. If you're not sure, don't worry—Windows will check your system to make sure it can install the preview.

    • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
    • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
    • Free hard disk space: 16 GB
    • Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
    • A Microsoft account and Internet access'



    Looking on the above, you would be able to run Windows 10 on it.

    I'm glad the T300 Chi is finally going to be in US stores so that I can go hands on with it, but I've really got my heart set on the top-end model that just got released in Singapore.

    It's the WQHD model with the 5Y71 processor and 8 gigs of ram. Asus Twitter reps are being tightlipped about when that model (or any other model) might be available. My wait continues....

    I think I previously posted in the wrong thread, but the tablet ships from Harrisburg, PA.

    It's being delivered to me today. I'm excited to go home. I'll post an update on the tablet tonight.
