Asus Transformer convertible touchscreen laptops debuts in India starting at Rs 35999

The Asus Transformer Pad TF103 Android tablet has been officially launched in India along with the Transformer Book T200 2-in-1 and the Transformer Flip Book TP550LD convertible notebook. The new lineup of devices has something for everyone with prices starting at Rs 19999 for the Google powered slate.
The Asus Transformer Pad TF103 is a 10.1-inch tablet which comes with an Intel Atom processor. The slate is quite an alluring one, but is quite expensive for what it offers. The said amount will land you a dual core 1.6GHz Intel Z2560 chip which is pretty outdated, coupled with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage.
