The Asus Transformer Pad TF103 Android tablet has been officially launched in India along with the Transformer Book T200 2-in-1 and the Transformer Flip Book TP550LD convertible notebook. The new lineup of devices has something for everyone with prices starting at Rs 19999 for the Google powered slate.
The Asus Transformer Pad TF103 is a 10.1-inch tablet which comes with an Intel Atom processor. The slate is quite an alluring one, but is quite expensive for what it offers. The said amount will land you a dual core 1.6GHz Intel Z2560 chip which is pretty outdated, coupled with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage.
The all-new Asus Transformer Flip Book TP550LD has a 15.6-inch screen with 1366x768p resolution; it has a hinge that enables the screen to be set at any angle between zero and 360-degree.
Buyers can choose between the 1.9GHz Intel Core i3 (Rs 47,999) and 2.7GHz Intel Core i5 (Rs 53,999) processor options; the 2GB Nvidia GeForce NV 820M graphics card comes as part of the standard package. This laptop also has 4GB RAM, 1TB hard disk, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, VGA front camera and a DVD drive.
Asus has used the Instant On technology in this Windows 8.1 laptop, so that it can resume from sleep mode in two seconds. When the battery charge drops below 5%, the laptop automatically backs up all the open files and other data.
The Taiwanese company’s Transformer Book T200 has a 11.6-inch HD (1366x768p) display and runs on Windows 8.1. It comes with a keyboard dock and the screen can be easily detached so that the device can work as a tablet.
The model, priced at Rs 35,999, is powered by the 2.4GHz Intel Z3775 BayTrail processor with Intel HD graphics card and 2GB RAM. It has 500GB of internal storage and supports up to 32GB via external storage cards. It comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 2MP front camera and 5MP rear camera. This convertible laptop offers battery life of up to 10.4 hours.
The Android 4.4-running Asus Transformer Pad TF103 has a 10.1-inch HD (1280x800p) screen and comes with an optional keyboard dock (which houses USB 2.0 ports). It runs on the dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor and 1GB RAM. This tablet has the same Zen UI that Asus uses on its Zenfone range of smartphones.
