Asus announces new Transformer 2-in-1s to rival Microsoft's Surface

Asus is taking on Microsoft’s latest Surface’s tablets with its Transformer 3 and Transformer 3 Pro, a new generation of 2-in-1 devices, announced today at Computex in Taipei. The Asus Transformer 3 Pro is a direct competitor for Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4, and will be purchasable with an Intel i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB solid state drive. The device is a hybrid laptop and tablet, but Asus is emphasizing the device’s power, describing it as “the world’s most versatile PC,” and detailing an array of ports to make the Transformer 3 Pro simpler to connect to other devices.

The standard Transformer 3 won’t have the same specifications as its Pro sibling, with Asus’ Johnny Shih saying only that it would feature a seventh generation Intel CPU, but it will be $200 cheaper than the fancier model. The Asus Transformer 3 will be available from $799 when it hits the market, while the Transformer 3 Pro will start at $999.
