These two new 12.6-inch portables feature up to 16 GB RAM, 1 TB storage, and they come with various processor options, up to Intel Core i7.

Asus has no less than three Transformer devices on display at this year's Computex ICT show, but we talked about the Transformer Mini already. Now, the time has come for the Transformer 3 and its more powerful sibling simply dubbed Transformer 3 Pro.

Asus Transformer 3 and Transformer 3 Pro are both 12.6-inch devices, but there are a lot of differences between them as well. The first one has an Intel Kaby Lake processor under the hood, next to up to 8 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD storage. It also features a fingerprint scanner, Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity, and a 13 MP camera. Asus Transformer 3 Pro comes with up to an Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, and 1 TB of PCIe x4 SSD storage. The other specs include those mentioned for the Transformer 3, but it also comes with a front-facing webcam with Windows Hello support, and more. 

While the Transformer 3 has a starting price of $799 USD, the Transformer 3 Pro is expected to retail for $999 USD and up. Those eager to see them before they reach the market can find these two machines (and much more) at booth #0410 in the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall, but they should be there by the end of Computex, which takes place on June 4th at 4 PM.

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.
