Microsoft is not to be left behind and has taken path-breaking measures in this field by launching the Surface 2 that features an additional keyboard case. Thus, Asus has some big shoes to fill if it is looking to up match up to the big players in the market.

The Asus Transformer Pad comes powered by a 1.9 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and packs in a 2GB RAM cache. It gets internal memory of 32 GB or 64 GB. What’s more, Asus is also offering an additional 5GB of cloud storage.

The Asus Transformer Pad is quite identical to its siblings in the Transformer Pad series. It measures 263 x 180.8 x 8.9 mm and is just 0.4mm thicker than Transformer Pad Infinity.

Asus also equips the Transformer Pad with the much powerful battery that finds place in all other Transformer Pads. The 31Wh battery pack in this tablet offers 13 hours of continuous use. Additionally, the 16 Wh dock provides four hours of additional use.

The Asus Transformer Pad also gets a 5 megapixel primary snapper apart from a 1.2 megapixel secondary shooter. It has microSD support for a maximum of 128 GB as well as a micro HDMI port. The Asus Transformer Pad  weighs 585 grams and with the keyboard dock, it weighs 1155 grams.
