Like the concept of the tablet from home Microsoft Office But not the device itself? Now you have another choice
The Surface Pro 4 tablet Microsoft Office Has been on the market for a year and a half (which is very close to winning in terms of the computer world), and it seems that he has not yet found a real successor who will be able to surpass him in all parameters, without exception - but that does not stop the various manufacturers.
The latest work to try to profit from the significant delay of the next generationSurface The new is Asus, Which is now officially launching its Transformer Pro T304UA, which claims first and foremost to provide more processing power at all levels of equipment and price.
So what will you find in the Taiwanese manufacturer's tablet? A 12.6-inch IPS touchscreen with a resolution of 1,920 × 2,880 pixels (with the same 3: 2 aspect ratio as a Microsoft product), packed in a thin metal shell that includes a built-in spring stand that can be adjusted and placed at a variety of angles. Below the screen you will get the U family processors (basic thermal wattage of 15 watts) from the Kaby Lake generation with Core i5, Core i3 and Core i7 models that should be available, LPDDR3 memory with a capacity of 8 GB or 16 c 1,866MT / s, built-in internal storage based on M.2 drive supports NVMe standard 128GB / terabyte, 8-megapixel main camera, front-facing webcam that supports Windows Hello technology , Stereo speakers from Harman, a built-in fingerprint scanner and of course a system Windows The 10 you get is installed straight out of the box.

Asus's tablet dimensions stand on a profile of less than 9 millimeters and weigh only about 810 grams (for the tablet itself, without the keyboard) that are very close to what the tablet's tablet offers. Microsoft Office Which has a screen that is half an inch smaller than the one that has to be mounted. When an array of connections that includes one USB 3.1 Type-C, one USB 3.0 and one full-size HDMI also provides a significant upgrade compared to the supply from Microsoft Office.
The slightly less good news about the new Transformer Pro is that Asus, which usually tries to provide attractive pricing for its products, decided to try and surpass Microsoft in the price as well - as an intermediate unit of the device with a processor Core i5, MEMORY RAM Of a gigabyte 8 and a drive storage Built-in 256 Gb is priced for about 1,450 Canadian dollars (or a little less than 1,100 US dollars), making the whole thing a bit more complicated.
We still do not know when theSurface Pro 5, how it will look and how much it will cost, but with the price tag it offers us Asus In this case, it is not really surprising to see many interested parties who prefer to give up the purchase and continue waiting for the "real thing", which will probably be available for purchase at a very similar amount and specifications. Who knows, maybe even Asus will understand this and provide us with a nimble cut in prices that can sweeten this deal. Do you agree with us? Let's talk about it in the comments.
