Asus is taking a page out of Lenovo’s book with a series of new laptops that bend over backward to become tablets. A series of unannounced Asus devices showed up at the FCC website recently, and like the Lenovo Yoga series of products, these look like notebooks at first glance. But you can push the touchscreen displays back 360 degrees until they’re back-to-back with the keyboard, letting you hold the computers like tablets.
Detailed specs aren’t available, but the computers run Windows 8.1 software, feature touchscreen displays, and the 13 inch model has 3 USB ports, an SD card slot, HDMI jack, and audio port. Power and volume buttons are on the side of the machine, providing easy access in tablet mode.
The 15 inch model has the same basic features, but it also has a numeric keypad, thanks to the extra space afforded by the larger screen.
There’s no word on the price or launch date for either model.
