Asus announced that a new convertible system has joined the Transformer Book family. In addition, the company also announced the pricing information on another anticipated Transformer Book, the T100HA.

The new addition to the Transformer Book line is the Flip TP200SA. The system uses the common 360-degree rotating hinge technique to turn it into a de facto tablet. According to Asus’s website, this system will be available with two CPU options and three storageconfigurations. The TP200SA will use either an Intel Celeron N3050 or Intel Pentium N3700, both of which are members of the Braswell processor family and built with Intel’s 14nm lithography. Both chips lack hyperthreading, though. The Celeron has a base speed of 1.6 GHz but can boost the clock speed as high as 2.16 GHz. The Pentium is similar, but with four cores instead of two, and a max clock speed of 2.4 GHz.

Asus offers the system in three different storage configurations: 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. The 32 GB and 64 GB setups use eMMC NAND as a cost-cutting measure, while the 128 GB option uses true SSD NAND.

Outside of these options, Asus opted to keep all other system specs the same across all models. The system contains 4 GB of RAM, as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, Intel HD Graphics, a 38 Wh battery, and a 1366×768 IPS display.

Asus’s other new Transformer Book, the 2-in-1 T100HA, uses the detachable keyboard method for transforming between laptop and tablet. The specs on this system are similar to the Flip TP200SA, but overall it features slightly lower specs.

The T100HA utilizes Intel’s Cherry Trail quad-core Z8500 CPU, and although it uses the same Airmont cores as Braswell, it features a lower clock speed of just 1.44 GHz (2.24 GHz boost clock). This processor also carries with it a lower TDP, which will likely reduce its ability to keep the clock speed elevated above the base clock.

The T100HA will come with the same storage configurations as the Flip TP200SA, but only uses the lower quality eMMC NAND. Some of these systems will use 2 GB of RAM, while others will feature 4 GB. The screen resolution is also slightly lower, at 1280 x 800.

Both of these systems will sport a USB Type-C connector, although it is limited to the Gen 1 5 Gbps transfer speed. Both systems will also come loaded with Windows 10.
