At Computex 2015, Asus announced the creation of the Transformer Book T100HA on June 1. This 2-in-1 is designed to succeed the Transformer Book T100TA, according to Asus. The product is a 10.1-inch laptop that has the ability to transform into a slim tablet.

The Transformer Book T100HA is powered with a quad-core Intel Atom Cherry Trail X5 series processor, and it has 4GB RAM. Following in the footsteps of Apple’s new laptops, Asus’ product also has a USB Type-C port. The Transformer Book comes with 14 hours of battery life and a 8.45mm chassis that weighs about 850 grams.

The metallic finish of the product will be available in Silk White, Tin Grey, Aqua Blue and Rouge Pink. The Transformer Book T100HA is expected to hit the market in the third quarter of this year, and Windows 10 will be preinstalled on the product when it debuts. Windows 10 will officially be released for PCs and tablets on July 29.

If the Transformer Book T100HA is anything like its predecessor, it will have some of the same versatile features that buyers love when they invest in a 2-in-1 model. The Transformer Book T100TA acts like a tablet with a detachable monitor with a 10.1-inch multitouch display. It includes a 1366-by-768-pixel HD resolution, as well as an Intel Bay Trail Quad-Core processor. Asus has noted that it is its best-selling 2-in-1 product.

The price of the Transformer Book T100TA with a 64GB SSD starts close to $400 on Newegg. A set price for the Transformer Book T100HA was not released at the time of Asus’ announcement at Computex 2015.

At the event, Asus announced a slew of new devices in addition to the Transformer Book. The Asus E1Z LED projector, Chromebox CN62 and VivoPC VC65 were some of the many items announced at Computex 2015, which is being held in Taiwan.
