ASUS is setting its sights on the Surface Pro 4 with its latest Transformers 2-in-1s. The Transformer 3 Pro and Transformer 3 feature 12.6-inch displays with a resolution of 2880 x 1920 resolution with a pixel density of 275 ppi, and come with an integrated kickstand as well as portable keyboards.
Both 2-in-1s offer USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 connectors, as well as a full-size backlit keyboard with 1.4mm travel, a glass trackpad and fingerprint sensors. As you'd expect, the Transformer 3 Pro is the high-end offering, with a Core i7 CPU, up to 1TB PCIe SSD, 16GB of RAM, and 13MP cameras at the front and rear.
The Transformer 3 can be configured with a Core i7 CPU, 512GB SSD, and up to 8GB of RAM. Another difference between the two products is that the Pro model's kickstand lets you set up the device in any angle up to 170 degrees, while the standard variant has a two-stage kickstand. There's a 10.1-inch Transformer Mini as well, which will make its debut sometime in Q3.
The Transformer 3 Pro will start from $999, while the Transformer 3 with 256GB SSD and keyboard cover will be available starting $799. You'll be able to pick up the 2-in-1s in grey or gold.
