Asus is updating its Transformer Book line of 2-in-1 Windows tablets with a new model sporting an Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor, a USB Type-C port, and a promise of up to 14 hours of battery life.
Asus says the Transformer Book T100HA will also be available with up to 4GB of RAM, when it launches in the third quarter of 2015.
The Transformer Book T100HA features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, an Intel Atom x5 processor. and the tablet measures 0.33 inches thick and weighs about 1.3 pounds. It’ll be available in black, white, green, or red.
Asus plans to offer models with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage.
The original Asus Transformer Book T100 first launched in 2013, offering a nice balance of a low price tag and decent performance in a compact package. This year’s model should offer faster performance, longer battery life, and options for up to twice as much memory and twice as much storage as the original.
Asus hasn’t announced the price for the new model yet, but the 2013 model had a list price of $349 when it was introduced. It’s likely that a new model with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage could sell for a similar price (or less), with higher prices for models with more memory and storage.
Update: Mobile Geeks reports the Transformer Book T100HA will sell for $279 and up.
