ASUS Transformer Book review: meet ASUS' first detachable Ultrabook

The Transformer Book was an innovative concept when it was first announced a year ago. But now that it's finally shipping with old components, you're better off waiting for a possible Haswell refresh.

Pros
  • Lovely 1080p IPS display
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Fast boot-up, resume times
  • Keyboard dock has a spare battery, hard drive
Cons
  • Heavy for a 13-inch touchscreen Ultrabook
  • Launching with a year-old CPU
