Besides announcing a new laptop, Asus also showed off a couple new 2-in-1 PCs during their Computex 2016 keynote. The new 2016 Asus Transformer lineup consists of three new devices aimed at different audiences. At the top is the Asus Transformer 3 Pro and just below that is the Asus Transformer 3 and the smallest of the bunch is the 10.1-inch Asus Transformer Mini

The Transformer 3 Pro is the best out of the 3 and it comes head to head with the Microsoft's own Surface Pro 4 in terms of hardware specs. Asus topped the Transformer 3 Pro with a speedier PCIe x4 SSD, Harmon Kardon audio, a USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 port, an HDMI port and a gold color. The device also supports Windows Hello facial recognition, a keyboard cover, an active stylus and heck yeah, Asus also built a Universal dock that expands the Transformer 3 Pro's ports.



And probably the biggest difference is that Asus is including both the active pen and the keyboard cover alongside the purchase of the Asus Transformer 3 Pro which starts at just US$ 999 (~MYR 4,100).

As for the Transformer 3, it is basically a less powerful Transformer 3 Pro. But they are essentially the same when it comes to the feature set. The Asus Transformer 3 still has the USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 port and the Harmon Kardon audio but id does way with the kickstand and doesn't have Windows Hello facial recognition but that's replaced with a fingerprint scanner on the power button. For a less powerful processing package, the Transformer 3 begins at just US$ 799 (~MYR 3,300)

Finally, the Transformer Mini is the smallest one among the three. It is still comes with a USB Type C port but not Thunderbolt and the keyboard cover is also included with the purchase. All three new Asus Transformer tablets will be available later this summer.
