ASUS reveals Australian pricing for Transformer Book Trio

ASUS unveil Transformer Book Trio, T100 and Zenbook series in Sydney

ASUS has unveiled three new devices, including the much vaunted Transformer Book Trio at an event in Sydney.

The event, which was hosted by ASUS country head, Vivian Hung, also debuted the ASUS Transformer Book T100 and the new generation Zenbook while revealing Australian pricing and availability for all three devices (below).

Hung said the Transformer Book Trio would redefine expectations of what a mobile PC device is capable of.

“The unparalleled flexibility of the Trio will take users from the office to the home, handling any computing task or entertainment function with ease.”

Both Transformer models have a two-part dockable design that combines the productivity features of a laptop with the portability of a tablet.

You can also switch between the two quite quickly.

But the Transformer Book Trio is more than meets the eye, with a keyboard dock that packs its own processor, so it can also be used as a self-contained desktop PC when its display is detached for use as a tablet.

It is a laptop, tablet and desktop PC in one sleek design and is a new breed of laptop that can be used by one person as a laptop, or by two people at once as a separate tablet and desktop PC.

It has a fourth generation Intel Core processor in Windows 8 laptop mode, but the 11.6-inch display detaches from the ‘PC Station’ keyboard dock for use as an Android tablet with its own Intel Atom processor.

The dock can then also be used as an independent Windows 8 desktop PC when connected to an external monitor.

The T100 is a 10.1-inch laptop with an Atom ‘Bay Trail’ quad-core processor and detachable HD display than can be used as a standalone Windows 8.1 tablet.

It has a slim design and durable finish and is light at just 1.07kg, but also one of the lightest 10-inch tablets around, at 550g.

It has up to 11 hours battery, according to the manufacturer and the lightweight keyboard dock has keys designed for comfortable extended use, a multi-touch touchpad with full Windows 8.1 gesture support and USB 3.0.

It is 10.5mm thick, and has a HD 10.1-inch tablet IPS multi-touch display with wide 178-degree viewing angles and razor-sharp images.

It is also pre-installed with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 with full versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

The new Zenbook UX301 and UX302 are Ultrabooks based on the previous model, launched in 2011.

The new models feature a metallic ‘spun’ metal design and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

It has a 13.3-inch display available with a 1920 x 1080 Full HD and 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution and a 4th generation Intel Core processor.
