Just ahead of Computex 2016's official start, Asus has used its pre-show conference to reveal its new Transformer tablet series. While the focus was on its, the Transformer 3 still has plenty to offer.
This Windows 2-in-1 PC is just 6.9mm (0.27 inches) thick and weighs 695g (1.5lbs), but offers 9 hours of battery life and still has the same 12.6-inch 3K 2,88 x1920-pixel display.
- 303 by 202 by 6.9mm (11.9 by 7.9 by 0.27 inches)
- 12.6-inch, 2,880x1,920-pixel resolution display with a 275ppi density
- 7th Generation Intel Core processors
- Up to 8GB ram
- Up to 512GB SSD storage
- Thunderbolt 3 Port
Much like how thewas a slightly cut down version of the , the Transformer 3 is a less robust version of the Transformer 3 Pro, which offers more RAM and storage.
But there looks to be more similarities than differences -- there's even the same Harmon Kardon speaker system built in both models. But those differences make a big change in the pricing. The Transformer 3 starts at $799 (AUD $1,115 or 545) compared to the $999 (AUD$1,395 and 683) of the base model of the Pro.
We'll get hands on impressions with the Transformer 3 as Computex continues.
