Asus Transformer 3 Pro hits Amazon
The Transformer family of devices by Asus consists of an impressive number of convertibles, and the Transformer 3 Pro is one of the latest additions. While most Asus Transformer convertibles launched so far are affordable devices, this one is a premium, yet a competitively priced alternative to Microsoft's Surface lineup.
The Asus Transformer 3 Pro configuration that can be acquired from Amazon for $1,499.99 USD has the following specs:
- Processor: Intel Core i7-6500U
- Memory/Storage: 16 GB RAM; 512 GB SSD
- Display: 12.6-inch touchscreen with 2,880X1,920 pixels
- Cameras: 2 MP front, 13 MP rear, IR camera for Windows Hello
- Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.1, HDMI, USB 3.0
- Operating system: Windows 10 Pro
- Weight/Dimensions: 1.8 pounds; 11.8X8.3X0.3 inches
- Battery: 39 Wh
In addition to the above, the T303UA model listed on Amazon comes with a keyboard cover that features backlit keys, as well as an Asus Pen with 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity.
According to a user review, it looks like Thunderbolt 3 connectivity is missing, and this model has been recently spotted at Costco retailing for about $250 USD less. However, a Surface Pro 4 or a Surface Book with similar features are usually priced around $2,000 USD, so this Transformer 3 Pro model might be a pretty good choice for most users.
