Asus Grows Its Transformer Lineup
Taiwanese PC maker Asus used Computex as a stage for unveiling a modified version of its Android-based Transformer Prime tablet, running Microsoft’s Windows 8 and flaunting a new half-notebook form factor.
The Transformer Book, as Asus called it, runs on Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors and comes in an 11.6-inch, 13-inch or 14-inch model. The hybrid device can be used as either a tablet or traditional notebook, with the help of a detachable keyboard, and has 4 GB of DDR3 dual-channel RAM.
Asus also introduced its Taichi dual-screen notebook that can be used as a clamshell when opened or as a tablet when closed shut.
