This 12.6-inch convertible can be purchased for $1,499 USD with a setup that includes a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7 6500U processor, 16 GB RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. A Surface Pro 4 with the same specs is $400 USD more expensive.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
