Asus on Wednesday debuted a brand new Transformer ultraportable called the T300.
Measuring 13.3 inches in size, the T300 is based on Intel's latest Core i-series generation of processors, and true to its Transformer name, features a detachable display that can be used as a standalone Windows 8 tablet.
Specswise, you're looking at anything from a Core i3-4010 CPU to an Intel Core i7-4500 CPU, as well as 8 GB of RAM and between 64 GB and 256 GB of solid state storage, a full HD camera on the back, a 720p camera on the front, stereo speakers, USB 3.0, microSD card slot, and micro-HDMI. The full HD (1920 x 1080) display features 10-point multitouch with a multitouch digitizer that measures a 6 mm contact point. The device measures 11.5 mm thick and weighs 2.4 lbs. Including the keyboard dock adds another 11 mm in thickness and an additional 2.1 lbs in weight.

I love my light devices these days and I'm actually using a Surface RT for work just because it is so light while doing all I need, but.. The specs/weight on this thing are not horribly out of line for hardware of this type. Price these things between $500 and $1000 depending on which hardware profile you're looking at and I could see some people going for these.
I'm guessing you'd prefer Windows 7 on a portable touchscreen device with a tablet mode? If so, all I've got to say is WOW.
Because Tom's forum has been broken in a way that if you refresh the page that you previously replied to, it re-posts your previous post. Been like this for months, no one has fixed it. Before I understood why my posts were getting reposted, I would refresh the page a few times to see what new comments had been made, and it looked like I was spamming the forum with 2-3x my posts. It's really annoying, I don't know why it's so hard to fix.
