Design

A sleek and good-looking Asus TF300T-B2-BL is sturdy yet light. It is not even one kg – just 0.6kg. It measures (180.8 x 263 x 9.9) mm and resembles tablet with functionalities like that of a laptop. The synthetic material of the body is good enough to withstand normal travel pressures. However, it is not shock-proof gadget – so, it may not survive a drop.

One of the unique design properties that this gizmo has is a docking station – a combination of several connectors, ports, and jacks so that it can be connected to another laptop or desktop. Sold in red, white, and blue varieties, the mini laptop has full-sized keyboard and a multi-functional touchpad.

There is also a keyboard docking facility. This signifies that there are suitable hinges on the side of the keyboard which allows it to be detached or docked to the tablet cum laptop whenever required. The portability of this gizmo is quite remarkable as it designed uniquely but priced at a range that does not pinch one’s pocket.
