First Transformer Book Unboxing, Available Next Month?

asus transformer book unboxing

Would you know it, after our latest look at the 9-month MIA status of the Transfomer Book Ultrabook, reader Carten Kring points out that a Transformer Book unboxing has appeared on YouTube. The video appears to be of a retail unit and was uploaded by reseller Conrad.de who lists the availability of the unit on the 18th of next month, a date which jives with our recent findings.

Here’s the unboxing video (in German):

Though I don’t speak German (some of our readers likely do!), it is significant that we can see what appears to be full retail packaging. This means the Transformer Book may finally be ready for the market.

As mentioned, the Conrad.de site lists two variants of the Trasnformer Book. The site says that the Core i7 model will be available on the 14th of March, while the Core i5 model will be available on the 18th.

This corroborates information that we found yesterday from reseller ShopBLT.com who expects the first shipments to arrive on the 7th of March.

    Really great machine. It is pity that it has no pen input and rear camera. I would exchange these happily for the 500GB mechanical HDD.

    What! My guess is that Intel have invited them to make a Haswell product for Computex.

    The Transformer page is still on the Asus site at transformer.asus.com this morning
