The ultra-lightweight ZenBook 3 Was not the only interesting computer that Asus unveiled in the last day - next to it stand three more tablet-based tablets Of the family of the company's revolutionary Transformer (which seems to have abandoned the Android system almost completely), each trying to flatten the Surface From another direction.

The senior model from the three is called 3 Transformer Pro, Which will offer a specification similar to that of the ZenBook 3 And that of the Surface Pro 4 With an 12.6-based IPS-based touch panel and a resolution of 1,920x, 2880 pixels that purport to provide an exceptionally rich color gamut that covers 121 percent of the sRGB facility, Core i5 and Core i7 dual core processors from the Skylake generation Pulsing inside, Memories of LPDDR3 in volumes up to 16GB And speeds up to 2,133MT / s, internal storage based Drives PCI Express 3.0X4 in volumes up to 1TB, An array of four Herman / Kardon speakers, a built-in back foot that can be placed in a variety of angles up to 170 in relation to the body of the device, a main 13 camera and a secondary camera with support for retinal recognition, Hello of .



The Transformer 3 Pro's body is made of aluminum, of course, and is compact in almost impossible dimensions, of course - with Thickness only about 8.35 millimeters and weight of 800 grams, Both for the tablet component only, not including the keyboard cover offered with it, which includes a backlight, a glass touchpad, and an impressive 1.4 millimeter press depth for the buttons.


Bassus declare my life Relatively disappointing up to eight hours for the 3 Pro transformer, but combined with a relatively fast load time of up to 60 per hour

Other features of the device to note are a built-in fingerprint scanner at the top that adds an additional personal security layer, USB Type C Gen.2 connection with support for Thunderbolt 3 technology - and a number of extensions that can be purchased for which include a touch pen with 1,024 click levels, an external speaker, an external connection stand that will add a wide range of wired connections - and the XG2 Station 2 stand Connect external desktop video cards to the system, Based on the 3 in question.

The second model in the family will be The 3 Transformer, Which shares some common features with the Pro Model (screen size and features, built-in fingerprint scanner, speaker quartet, and Type C Gen.2 integrated Thunderbolt 3 integrated) but also does so with even more modest dimensions -And 6.85 millimeters only and weight of 700 grams Based on passive cooling. Yes, we are still talking here on a computer 10 is real and complete.


The Transformer 3 manages to reach these fantastic dimensions thanks to chips Intel's future Kaby Lake division, This time there is no doubt that these are chips Of the Core M family Which offer a tiny thermal envelope, in combination with Up to 3GB of LPDDR8 memory And storage based Drives Up to 512GB. This tablet is also characterized by a polished aluminum shell, although this time the body does not include a built-in foot, but is based on an origami keyboard cover that functions to give it two different tilt levels, and also includes the generous keyboard of the Transformer 3 Pro.


The 3 Transformer will also have the support of all the plugins mentioned a few paragraphs ago (yes, including the XG2 Station that can make it a kind of gaming machine) Of up to nine hours, based on capacity Of 38.5-watts and in combination with fast charging based on the Type C connection.


Both tablets will be available for purchase this summer and the third quarter of the year in general, when you can gamble that the Pro will be the first to come to market thanks to its use of current generation chips , And not from the new generation that has not yet been launched. The 3 Transformer will carry a starting price tag of $ 800 where it will come with 4GB of RAM, a drive Of 256GB and even a keyboard cover, while the Transformer 3 Pro will cost $ 1,000 at the start - probably also with a price-included keyboard cover, 4GB of memory and 256GB of volume , Similar to ZenBook 3 pricing.

A third favorite model would be The Transformer Mini, Which does not yet have a large number of details - is known to offer an 10.1-inch touch screen (seemingly at a minimum resolution of 800 × 1,280 pixels, but with a promise of high clarity from the 400 Candle per square meter norm), an aluminum casing with a built-in rear foot Transformer 3 Pro, built-in fingerprint scanner, Chip atom x5-Z8350 quad-core up to date, RAM of 2GB or 4GB, Built-in storage for 128GB (With other options that have not yet been clarified), System Full 10, full-size USB Type C and USB Type A connections, 11 promise for hours of life And its own dedicated keyboard covers.


This model is also expected to arrive in the next few months at a price that will naturally be significantly lower than the other two more advanced Transformer models.


Asus managed to create a pair In very difficult dimensions to find competitors - and we can only hope that the road there did not force them to cut and round too many important and significant corners. We can know the truth in no time, we hope.

  1. Just need to add a serious video card, and a computer is definitely recommended and pays off to a very wide audience. Including video editors and graphic artists etc.

    1. I'd love to find out a few things since you mentioned editors.
      Don't I understand the logic of the I7 or I5 processor with 2 cores that should be used by editors? _ (After all he has no real power)
      Isn't it better to work on 67000K or even 6600K on a desktop computer?
      The need for mobile work is understandable and acceptable, but make mobility the heart of the profession ..?
      Because there are those, I saw a lot of STUDIOS in the studio that the center of the studio is a laptop.

      But wait…. Mac not running on Intel?

      So what's the problem with running it on a desktop computer?
