    Transformer Book V... that things looks amazingly useful. I doubt that 0.8Kg figure is for all 3 components, must just be the tablet part... I wonder how much the whole thing weighs in total? I'd love it to be ~1-1.2Kg... I hope there is a keyboard option without the extra 1TB - wouldn't want to waste battery and weight for something unnecessary...

    Watching this one closely!

    Transformer Book T300 Chi (seriously too long a name) looks nice, doesn't look like it supports stylus so completely defeats the point of a full fat windows tablet in my opinion. Being thin is nice and all but they don't mention battery life which could be an issue, it defeats the point if you need the keyboard or a plug all the time. They're also referring to next gen intel chip which unless broadwell has magically appeared early means they're likely not releasing it till nearer Christmas....

    Have any of the HEXUS guys seen how this looks in the flesh? I can't help but feel that DPI gremlins would make this unusable outside of a handful of apps, but I love the idea.
