Transformer Book T100 Chi teased on Wi-Fi Alliance page

Asus' Transformer Book T100 convertible earned our TR Recommended award last year. Now, a premium successor to the system looks to be in the works, at least judging by a Wi-Fi Alliance certification page spotted by Liliputing.

The page lists Wi-Fi certified systems. One of them is the "T100Chi" from Asus, which is described as a "tablet" with 5GHz Wi-Fi and Windows 8. The listing doesn't include other details, but we know Asus already applies the "Chi" suffix to the Transformer Book T300 Chi, an uber-thin convertible powered by Intel's new Core M processor.

Liliputing speculates that the T100 Chi could have either a Core M or a slower Bay Trail Atom under the hood. Given the original T100's budget leanings, though, an Atom seems more likely to me. Official tray prices for Core M chips start at $281, which is more than what some variants of the T100 currently cost.

Anyhow, we'll keep our eyes peeled. Most likely, the T100 Chi will make an appearance at CES early next month.
