One of the latest devices to join the Ultrabook convertible category is the ASUS Transformer Book. This Windows 8 machine is part tablet, part notebook and costs a pretty penny. Official pricing hasn't been released by ASUS, but MacMall has put the machine up for pre-order for a small fortune of $1,479.99.

The 13.3-inch device is powered by a Core i7-3517U CPU and 4GB of RAM. The display checks in at 1920 x 1080 resolution and is powered by Intel's HD4000 graphics processor. Storage is provided by a 500GB HDD and a 128GB SSD, which is most likely used for booting and quick-on technology.

 

While that price comes with the keyboard, you'll probably want to wait to order the device until ASUS officially outs the pricing and it becomes available at more locations. It's very possible and likely that MacMall has the price artificially high to make some extra money off of the early adopters.
