Asus Transformer 3 redefines the mobile PC

Transformer 3When it comes to computers in this day and age, desktops are far removed from what they were in the earlier days. After all, design has taken on an all important role, and even if a particular product were to be darn good where its hardware specifications are concerned, it will still need to be aesthetically pleasing if it were to be of any use in the market. With that in mind, the folks over at Asus have decided to make the Asus Transformer 3 to be something that is worth remembering – and of course, purchasing.

First things first – the Asus Transformer 3 comes across as an ultra-slim and compact 2-in-1 PC that provides users with the ultimate mobility, total convenience, and amazing expandability. It is precision crafted from aluminum, which means the Transformer 3 would tip the scales at a mere 695 grams, all the while measuring a mere 6.9mm thin – now how about that for portability? In other words, the Transformer 3 will boast of smaller dimensions compared to that of a sheet of A4 paper.

Not only that, it’s compact and elegant design is accentuated by diamond-cut edges and an exquisite spun-metal finish. It will even come equipped with the detachable Asus Transformer Sleeve Keyboard that has 1.4mm key travel, an integral 2-position display stand, and a glass-covered precision touchpad, ensuring that any user will be able to enjoy comfortable typing and smooth, accurate input for the best productivity and creativity experiences while he or she is on the move.

Your eyes will appreciate the 12.6-inch display with a resolution of 2880 by 1920 and a 275ppi pixel density, where its ultra-thin bezel delivers an 80% screen-to-body ratio, maximizing the display area while keeping the device compact and highly portable. A quartet of high-quality speakers by Harman Kardon are there to accompany you as well, and it will run on a 7th Gen Intel Core processor with up to a 512GB SSD and up to 8GB RAM, while featuring a 13MP camera for capturing high-resolution photos and videos. Sounds pretty much like the complete package, aye?
