ASUS Announces New Transformer Pad TF701T with 2560 x 1600 Display

ASUS today announced the new Transformer Pad TF701T, a 10.1-inch Android tablet with a stunning 2560 x 1600 IPS display, the latest high-performance NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor and a lightweight Mobile Dock with USB 3.0.

The new ASUS Transformer Pad is perfect for on-the-go entertainment, thanks to a durable metallic design that's just 8.9mm thick and weighs 585g. A high-quality speaker with ASUS SonicMaster audio technology gives loud, clear sound for music, movies and games, while the 17-hour battery life when docked means the new ASUS Transformer Pad lasts for two full working days between charges.

The tablet for vivid 2560 x 1600 entertainment
The new ASUS Transformer Pad features a 10.1-inch high-performance IGZO-TFT display with reduced energy consumption and a very wide color gamut. The 2560 x 1600 WQXGA resolution gives an extraordinarily sharp image, while IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology ensures accurate color reproduction, wide 178-degree viewing angles and excellent daylight visibility.

Powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU and a 72-core GeForce GPU, the new ASUS Transformer Pad gives a great entertainment experience with HD movies and the latest Android games. Miracast Wi-Fi video streaming means the new ASUS Transformer Pad can mirror its display to a compatible HDTV for big-screen entertainment without cables, while a wired HDMI connection can drive a 4K Ultra HD display for truly immersive enjoyment.

The new ASUS Transformer Pad also features a front 1.2-megapixel camera for crystal-clear video chat and a rear 5-megapixel camera that captures full-resolution photos while shooting simultaneous 1080p Full HD video. Zero shutter lag means photos are always captured at the right moment, while HDR (High Dynamic Range) and intelligent face enhancement gives great shots, every time.

Mobile Dock for additional productivity
The new ASUS Transformer Pad is more than just a high-performance tablet - it's also an extremely capable Android laptop, thanks to its Mobile Dock. The dock's full-size keyboard with a large multi-touch touchpad makes the new ASUS Transformer Pad perfect for productivity apps and the Microsoft Office-compatible Polaris Office suite is supplied pre-installed.

The dock also features a USB 3.0 port that adds support for the latest next-generation SuperSpeed storage devices, while its own built-in battery extends the new ASUS Transformer Pad's battery life from 13 to 17 hours. The dock also features an SDXC card slot that complements the tablet's own microSDXC card slot.

Stylish and practical TransCover protection
The new ASUS Transformer Pad also has an optional protective TransCover case with a durable synthetic screen cover and a hard shell rear. TransCover also has a folding cover that props up the screen at a comfortable angle for on-screen typing and watching video.

Asus just recently announced the Zenbook UX301 with 2560x1440- pretty close (probably what you will end up with give most notebook manufacturers are sticking to 16:9).

Yeah, that's 3,840 x 2,560,.....

The Asus offerings look fairly awesome though. The Asus Transformer Book TX300 13" tablet PC has a keyboard doc with not only a built in battery to help power the tablet but also has a built in 500GB HDD, USB 3.0 ports, Ethernet, backlit keys, mini-DisplayPort and so on.

1440p on a laptop would be beautiful. I have a 27" 1440p monitor and I love it, that would be pretty amazing. I like the 16:9 alot better than 1600p, I've always preferred widescreen.

Scaling. :(

Every time there's a good monitor somebody complains about scaling, let me tell you that the only OS that can't quite figure out how scaling is supposed to work is Windows - Mac OS can do it, many of the Linux DEs can figure it out, most everything on the BSDs can pull it off, but only a Microsoft product would have problems.

So you may use an inferior product that has problems doing something basic such as that, but I do not.

It's MS and others, and there are reasons for it, but yes that is correct. So only what, 70% of computer users would have issues with it? Which is the point. At this point, scaling is an issue for the vast majority of users. Ironically, the Windows 8 Metro interface seems to scale very well.
