Computex 2016: ASUS announces Transformer Series 2-in-1 PC

Besides the ZenBook 3, ASUS has also announced the Transformer Series 2-in-1 PC — Transformer 3 Pro, Transformer 3 and Transformer Mini.

ASUS Transformer 3 Pro

The Transformer 3 Pro looks just like the Surface Pro by Microsoft. It has a 12.6-inch WQHD+ (2,880 x 1,920) glare touchscreen with 275 ppi pixel density and 121% sRGB color space.

The device comes with an integrated metal kickstand with a stepless hinge that lets users set the device at almost any viewing angle up to 170°. It is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and has up to a 1 TB PCIe x4 SSD and 16 GB of 2,133MHz RAM. Its USB Type-C connector supports USB 3.1 Gen 2 devices at speeds up to 10 Gbps, and Thunderbolt 3 provides 40 Gbps data transfers and support for dual external 4K UHD displays.

The Transformer 3 Pro features dual front stereo speakers with audio by Harman Kardon. It also has a 13 MP rear camera and a front-facing camera with Windows Hello facial recognition.

Additionally, you can connect the Transformer 3 Pro to the ROG XG Station 2 (an external graphics card dock), which gives desktop-grade graphics performance, turning it into a VR-ready gaming powerhouse.

ASUS Transformer 3

The Transformer 3 has four high-quality speakers with audio by Harman Kardon. The device is powered by 7th Gen Intel Core processors and has up to a 512 GB SSD and up to 8 GB RAM.

The rest are pretty much the same — 12.6-inch WQHD+ display, USB Type-C connector that supports USB 3.1 Gen 2 devices, 13 MP rear camera and Windows Hello facial recognition. Like the Transformer 3 Pro, you can also connect it to the ROG XG Station 2.

ASUS Transformer Mini

The Transformer Mini is the world’s lightest 2-in-1 PC. The device features a premium magnesium-aluminum alloy design, which weighs just 790 g with the keyboard attached and only 530 g as a tablet and is only 8.2 mm thin.

The device has an integrated kickstand with a patented stepless Smart Hinge design that opens up to 170°. Its detachable ergonomic keyboard has 1.5 mm key travel and an integrated palm rest.

Unfortunately, ASUS did not reveal much info about this 10.1-inch 2-in-1 PC. We do know that it has a complete Windows 10 experience with features including Office Mobile, Cortana, and Windows Hello.
