Microsoft and Intel have been pushing for the world to move towards 2-in-1 convertibles for very a few years now.

Obviously, for the individuals who are alright with the iOS universe, the 12-inch iPad Pro is an alternative, and a capable one at that; there's the littler 9-inch iPad Pro too.

Nonetheless, there are different OEMs like Asus, Huawei and Acer which are likewise competing for a share of this pie.

The Asus Transformer Pro 3, which was initially showcased at Computex 2016 in Taiwan by the organization, is currently accessible in India.

Asus Transformer Pro 3 survey

I first observed the Asus Transformer Pro 3 at the Computex 2016 occasion, yet was more keen on looking at the ZenBook 3 at the time. At first look, the Transformer Pro 3 looks and feels precisely like the Surface, which isn't that energizing. In any case, on nearer review, you can see that Asus has made an astounding showing with regards to. The all-metal outline is extremely premium, and the gold looks tasteful. It has an incorporated metal kickstand at the back, again like the Surface and Asus says you can set it up at a 170 degree edge too, which is really cool, yet somewhat pointless.

There's a different console, which joins simply like the one on the Surface. Asus says the keys have 1.4mm travel, and this is an illuminated console. Indeed, even with the console appended, the Transformer Pro 3 remains a smooth gadget, which you can undoubtedly bear. Be that as it may, on the other hand it's difficult to overlook the similitudes with the Surface.

So what's great?

The show on the Asus Transformer Pro 3 is 2880×1920 pixels with 3:2 proportion, and when you switch on the gadget, it's clear this is a perfect one. The blacks are profound, the hues are fresh and striking. Whether you are simply writing out content or taking a gander at spreadsheets, or wanting to watch Netflix throughout the day on this thing, then this screen is great. I watched Season 3 of Black Mirror on this gadget, and I was generally inspired.

The general sound quality is additionally very great. I didn't want to wrench up the volume to full while watching my shows. In case you're one of the individuals who likes to devour video content on their convenient gadgets, then the Asus Transformer Pro 3 is more than equipped for conveying on that front. The show and the sound quality don't frustrate, and given you can utilize this as a tablet which has its own stand, so compactness is not an issue.

On the general execution front, I didn't confront any issues in that capacity with the Asus Transformer Pro 3. My essential undertakings on this were video utilization, composing, altering duplicates, and as normal I had around 8-10 tabs open on Google Chrome when perusing on this gadget. With 16GB RAM and Intel Core i7 processor, this is more than equipped for taking care of your every day assignments, particularly if that incorporates spending extensive hours on the Microsoft Office Suite. The touch highlight on the show is likewise quick and responsive, and I didn't see any slack in that capacity when depending on this usefulness.

The console satisfies the cases keeping in mind it takes at some point getting used to the littler surface range, I experienced no difficulty writing out articles, including this survey on the Transformer Pro 3. I for the most part require some serious energy acclimating to an alternate sort of console, and it was the same with this gadget. Generally speaking, I like how responsive the console is, and it really is great that Asus has made it an illuminated one, which implies you ought not experience difficulty writing out oblivious.

Asus Transformer Pro 3 likewise has bolster for a stylus. I'm not quite a bit of a craftsman , but rather I observed the stylus to be responsive even with a genuinely light touch. Yet, despite everything i'm not a fanatic of composing with these things on a show, given I'm left-given and it's not the most agreeable approach to compose for me. Still my penmanship was clear with the Asus Stylus Pen on the OneNote application, which I consider a win.

So what's not very great?

It's not all ideal for Asus Transformer Pro 3. Regardless of the expanded particulars, there is a slack on occasion with the gadget. On one occasion, the gadget declined to boot-up for me, and I needed to depend on the Power and Volume down catch to reboot it.

This additionally has bolster for Microsoft's Windows 10 Hello sign in, however that never worked precisely. I'm not certain what happened here; and I had a go at signing in more than once, yet it declined to work.

The battery on this is not noteworthy by any stretch of the imagination. I'd say the Asus Transformer Pro 3 will give around 6-8 hours, best case scenario, which is not awesome considering this thing has accompanies a powerful cost. I would expect a gadget costing near one and a half lakh to have a 10-hour battery life at any rate.


Let's be honest, not every one of us need a convertible gadget which costs a bomb. The vast majority of us are content with a consistent tablet for our fundamental every day needs of writing, presentations and the late-night video-session, regardless of the possibility that it may be underpowered and marginally substantial. Not every one of us are craftsmen either, and require a stylus at all circumstances.

Asus Transformer Pro 3 is for the individuals who require an intense, yet simple to travel gadget and one that won't disappoint them. The Stylus is an expansion to your imaginative needs, should you have time, slant and aptitudes for the same. Asus conveys on the execution front, and the console is surely one of the better ones. In any case, the battery setback is an issue.

In the event that you are thinking about a Surface option, and don't need an iPad Pro, then Asus Transformer Pro 3 is a choice. Be that as it may, is it superior to getting a Surface Pro 4? I'm not by any means persuaded.
