Design and Display
The ASUS Transformer 3 Pro shares similar aluminum construction as the ASUS Transformer 3. The striking resemblance includes integrated metal kickstand at the rear and a hinge that let use the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro at angles of up to 170 degrees making it more flexible to use the tablet on a desk.
The Transformer 3 Pro’s 12.6in display has a resolution of 2,880 x 1,920, equating to 275 pixels per inch.
The Transformer 3 Pro is all but identical in design to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 if you take a look at it from a distance. The noticeable difference is that the Transformer’s metal chassis is slightly darker than that of the Surface and there’s an Asus, not Microsoft, logo on the back.
The Transformer Pro 3 weighs 795g and measures 289 x 211 x 8.35mm. That’s a bit wider, but shorter and noticeably thinner the Microsoft high-end tablet.The keys are suitably spread out and you get a backlit-keyboard that have a better key travel of 1.4 mm than competing devices.
The Transformer 3 Pro is available in two color options, called Icicle Gold and Titanium Gray. The Transformer 3 Pro looks nice, feels good in the hand and appears to be well built while offering a solid IO and accessories meant to improve user’s experience with it.
Asus is offering the Transformer 3 Pro in various configurations. The ASUS Transformer 3 Pro is driven by seventh-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. In short, the top version comes with a sixth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU and 8GB of DDR4 RAM. From web browsing to photo editing the Core i5 processor and fast SSD make it a speedy all-rounder.
For capturing high-resolution images and videos there is a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera on the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro. Also available is a front-facing camera with Windows Hello support for facial biometric authentication. The front camera (2 MP) is primarily used for video transmission, such as Skype sessions. The OmniVision OV13850 camera sensor offers sufficient quality for snapshots.
In case you need to boost the integrated Intel graphics (for gaming, for example), you can add the ASUS ROG XG Station 2 via a Thunderbolt 3 connection. The Rich sound is covered by a pair of front-facing stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon. The problem with the battery life of the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro is the longevity of the 39Wh lithium-polymer battery.
On the other hand, the battery will fast-charge, reaching 60 percent in 60 minutes, the power adapter is also relatively small and light, so it shouldn’t take up too much bag space.
