The most powerful ASUS Transformer model yet is here and the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro has excellent specs, with a pretty good price. It goes for $1500 on Amazon and it’s a 2 in 1 machine, with an Intel Core i7 CPU. More about it below!


The Transformer 2 in 1 lineup has been offering solid products for years now, either with Windows or Android. This time we get a genuine laptop killer, a 12.6 inch premium machine with a kickstand included. This model measures 0.3 inches in thickness, weighs around 1.8 pounds and comes with a keyboard cover with backlit keys and an ASUS Pen, used to write or draw with 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity.


Here’s what the specs list looks like:

  • Display: 12.6 inch, 2880 x 1920 pixels
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6500U, Skylake
  • RAM: 16 GB DDR3
  • Storage: 512 GB SSD, SD card slot
  • Connectivity: HDMI, USB 3.0, Thunderbolt 3, USB type C for charging, WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.1
  • Cameras: 13 MP back, 2 MP front, IR camera for Windows Hello
  • Battery: 39 Wh

There are also stereo 2W speakers and just in case you’re wondering why you shouldn’t pick the Surface Pro 4 instead, know that Microsoft’s model costs $2199 with a Core i7 CPU and 16 GB of RAM, so the ASUS unit is a bargain at $1500.
