|ASUS Transformer 3 Pro Unveiled at COMPUTEX 2016|
ASUS' portable Transfomers lineup has been the subject of preference for people who need a versatile workhorse that allows them to work, no matter the time or place. Now, the company is expanding the lineup once more as it announces the Transformer 3 Pro at COMPUTEX 2016. The hybrid bears a close resemblance to Microsoft's Surface Pro devices – there's a kickstand at the back of the Transformer 3 Pro but with a 155-degree step-less hinge to let its users view it at any angle.
The ASUS Transformer 3 Pro is designed with premium-grade aluminum-magnesium alloy, giving it a gorgeous design that will look great and feel great. It's also thin and light, at 800g and 8.35mm thin, it's one of the easiest hybrid devices you can carry inside your bag without any worries.

For its performance, the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro relies on the 6th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM. You can also work with up to 1TB PCIe x4 SSD if you want to have blazing-fast program load times and boot up speeds. What's more, it's equipped with a Thunderbolt 3 interface that can deliver up to 40Gbps of data via the USB-C port, it can even support dual external 4K UHD displays.

If you want to use it as a full-blown PC, Asus is including the Transformer Cover Keyboard that, as its name suggests, acts as a keyboard for the hybrid tablet. The keys are gently backlit to give you visibility in the dark, which makes it perfect for any environment.
Pricing starts at $999 for the Transformer 3 Pro, and going up with the highest variant will likely yield double the price tag. However, there's no word at the moment as to when ASUS will release the Transformer 3 Pro.
