At Computex 2014 Asus announced the launch of many products including four laptops namely Zenbook NX500, Book V, Book T300 Chi and Book Flip. Out of them Transformer Book V is not entirely only a laptop . As it is “the world’s first five-mode, three-in-one converged laptop” according to Asus.
Asus Transformer Book V:-
Asus lifted the expectations from Book V when it launched its “Blender Teaser” trailer some days ago. The trailer showed Transformer Book V to be a blend of a tablet, smartphone and laptop. This blended device is similar to a padfone in which a 5 inch smartphone fits in a 12 inch tablet. Tablet has a dock in which the smartphone goes in as you can see from the image below. The tablet runs on Windows 8.1 powered by Intel Core Processors.
The tablet has 128GB storage which you can increase by attaching the keyboard dock having additional 1TB hard-disk. The phone part is equipped with quad-core Intel Atom chipset running the latest Android 4.4 Kitkat and comes with LTE connectivity. So the users can switch between both the OS easily.
Asus Transformer Book Flip:-
The screen of this laptop can be rotated full 360 degree justifying the name “Flip”. The laptop is available in three sizes i.e. 13.3”, 14”, 15.6” and runs Windows 8.1 on Intel Core i7 processor with a graphic card Nvidia GeForce GT480M.
