About a year after Asus introduced a low-cost 11.6 inch convertible notebook called the Transformer Book Flip TP200, it looks like the company has a new model called the TP201 on the way.
A number of European retail websites are showing listings for the new laptop, which will likely be unveiled at the Computex trade show in June. And they all paint a picture of a convertible laptop that looks a lot like last year’s model.
Like the TP200, the new Transformer Book TP201 features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel IPS touchscreen display and a 360 degree hinge that allows you to fold the screen back and hold the computer like a tablet.
It has 4GB of RAM, a USB Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port, and a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, and 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
But if the leaks are accurate, there are a few new features. The processor has received a minor bump from a choice of Celeron N3050 or Pentium N3700 quad-core chips to a Pentium N3710 processor. And the battery seems to have gotten a bump from 38 Wh to 48 Wh.
The new notebook weighs about 2.8 pounds and measures about 0.9 inches thick.
