On the Asus T300 Chi

Asus engineers have been making some incredible devices. They have been on an epic run. The executives at Asus have made some aggressive assumptions about the future market share of the Google Chrome operating systems. That may be a play that pays huge dividends for Asus shareholders. Now is probably a good time for a full disclosure, I own a number of Asus devices and will probably be buying the Asus Chromebit when it becomes available this summer.

The 2015 version of the Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi (after the Windows 10 release) could be the eventual replacement to my HP Envy X2 computer. For that to happen the engineers at Asus will need to extend the battery life by several hours. Some of the early batter test results are coming in between 5 and 6 hours of battery life. Not only do I expect a computer to have better battery life than 6 hours, but also I am really on the hunt for a computer that could be charged overnight and run all day. That is the key buying constraint on my next device.

I’m still getting used to my monitor setup change. My main Storm Stryker housed computer is now connected to just one 27 inch monitor. Downgrading from 3 monitors to 1 monitor required some adjustment. Being able to move content from one monitor to another is a great way to multitask.  However, at some point I needed to just focus on one or two key items. I’m had been preparing to make the switch to a 4K resolution monitor. The Samsung 28-Inch Ultra High Definition LED Monitors seemed like a reasonably priced 4K option. If Microsoft Windows 10 will ship with drivers for 8K resolution monitors, then I’m going to skip 4K resolution and wait to purchase an 8K monitor.
