Last week ahead of Computex 2016, Acer took the wraps off several different 2-in-1 laptops. Now if you’re in the market for 2-in-1 devices but want other alternatives to what Acer is offering, then you might be pleased to find out that ASUS has you covered with their recently launched Transformer 3 devices.
While Acer’s offerings might seem more like laptops that have detachable displays, ASUS’s offerings feel more like tablets that come with keyboard attachments, and a design that we reckon could give Microsoft a run for its money. There are two options offered by ASUS in the form of the Transformer 3 and the Transformer 3 Pro.
In terms of specs, the Pro model is obviously the more powerful of the two. It will come with an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. It also comes with a 12.6-inch display with a resolution of 2880×1920, and a pair of dual speakers powered by Harman Kardon’s audio tech.
Now despite the lack of a “Pro” moniker, the regular Transformer 3 won’t be a slouch. It too will sport a similar display and processor options, although in terms of storage and RAM, it will only go up to 512GB and 8GB, which we reckon for the most part most of you guys should be able to get by with. It also comes with a quad speaker setup, courtesy of Harman Kardon. There is even a fingerprint scanner for added security. ASUS has priced the Transformer 3 at $799 while the Pro will be priced starting at $999.
