Aside from Transformer 3 Pro and its smallest variant, the Transformer 3 Mini, Asus has a middle line of 2-in-1 tablet with lesser details (for now) compare to other models. The Transformer 3 (T305) is slightly different in terms of underlying specs. However, it is also a 12.6-inch convertible tablet with Intel's Kay Lake (code name for Intel's awaited new line of Core i7 chip) processor.

Regardless of other specs, the Thunderbolt 3 port of Asus Transformer 3 captured my attention. The said Intel's promising technology is a game changer for new line of computers and other handheld devices. According to report, the first appearances of this port started in Computex 2016 and that is no other than Asus new line of Microsoft Surface Pro like tablets.

It was said that Thunderbolt 3 offers a high-performance port for several types of third-party device.
