Asus has definitely taken the right steps to work on the Transformer line of devices in the past, where the name itself implies that it is not so much a straightforward piece of hardware, but rather, it comes across as a multiple-use machine that fills up different niches from time to time. For instance, there was the Asus Transformer Book Flip that can function as a tablet or a notebook, depending on the situation, without removing the display from the keyboard itself. This time around, we have the Asus Transformer Mini that has been touted to be the lightest 2-in-1 PC in the world. The best thing, it works without any cooling, so no case fans or anything like that. Complete silence.
Sporting a premium magnesium-aluminum alloy design, the Asus Transformer Mini tips the scales at a mere 790 grams complete with the keyboard attached, and if you were to make use of it as a tablet, that would mean that it will weigh all of just 530 grams, measuring 8.2mm thin. Now that is certainly very svelte, don’t you think so?
The Asus Transformer Mini will also come with a 10.1” display with 400cd/m2 brightness and ASUS TruVivid display technology, helping to reduce reflections for a rich, vibrant picture in all lighting conditions. Not only that, the Asus Transformer Mini will also deliver enhanced video performance with ASUS Tru2Life video technology, which optimizes every pixel in each frame before it is displayed, resulting in superior contrast and clarity for the best, most realistic video quality. Other hardware specifications include a USB port, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and up to 11 hours of battery life.
The integrated kickstand with a patented stepless Smart Hinge design that opens up to 170°, so that users can adjust the display to almost any viewing angle. It also comes with a detachable ergonomic keyboard which has 1.5mm key travel and an integrated palm rest for a comfortable typing experience. Running on Windows 10, you can enjoy using Office Mobile, Cortana, and Windows Hello regardless of where you are, and security is further enhanced with a built-in Instant ID fingerprint reader. It is quite a beauty, don’t you think so?
