Computex 2016 | Asus Transformer Mini specs show up online

Asus Transformer Mini
Advertised as the world's lightest 2-in-1 PC, this convertible is powered by the Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, featuring up to 4 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.

This week, Asus unveiled no less than three Transformer convertibles at Computex, but the main attractions seem to be the Transformer 3 and the Transformer 3 Pro. Unfortunately, not even the official press release paid enough attention to the specs of the 10-inch, more affordable Transformer Mini. Fortunately, after some members of the press took this convertible for a spin, more details have finally become public.

According to MobileGeeks and Notebook Italia, quoted by Liliputing, the Asus Transformer Mini comes with the following highlights:

  • Processor: Intel Atom x5 Z8350 SoC (Cherry Trail family)
  • Display: 10.1-inch multitouch with 1,280X800 pixels
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB and 4 GB options; 128 GB internal storage and microSD card reader
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 ac, micro HDMI, full-size and micro USB, fingerprint scanner

In terms of design, the Asus Transformer Mini is similar to the Microsoft Surface, having a kickstand on the back and a keyboard cover that attaches to the frontal side of the tablet using magnets. The weight of the tablet alone is 1.2 pounds, but by adding the keyboard cover as well, the Transformer Mini weighs a bit less than 1.75 pounds. 

Asus can be found at Computex 2016 at booth #0410 in the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall until the 4th of June.

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.
