New Products: Asus Transformer Flip TP200, Canon Pixma Ink Efficient G3000 and more

Asus Transformer Flip TP200

CONVERTIBLE LAPTOP

$499

This 11.6-inch hybrid laptop has a 360-degree hinge that lets it switch easily between tablet and laptop modes. To prevent accidental input, the keyboard and touchpad are automatically disabled in tablet mode.

It is fairly light at around 1.2kg and comes with three USB ports, including a new USB 3.1 Type-C port that offers faster data transfer speeds. Its 1,366 x 768-pixel display has wide viewing angles because it uses in-plane switching technology.


Canon Pixma Ink Efficient G3000

PRINTER

$329

This is Canon's first ink tank printer. Instead of changing its ink cartridges, you refill the ink by pouring it into the printer's integrated ink tank. The tank's see-through design lets you view the ink level without having to run an app or open up the printer.

Canon says the G3000 can yield up to 7,000 colour pages and 6,000 black-and-white pages with each bottle of refill.

The printer has wireless functionality that lets you print documents and photos using an app (iOS and Android).


D-Link DIR-885L

ROUTER

$379

Stream your movies and music at home, without a hitch, with this dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac router. It has a sleek, futuristic design to match its top wireless speeds of up to 2,167Mbps on the 5GHz band and 1,000Mbps on the 2.4GHz band.

A feature called beamforming lets it focus its wireless signal to your connected devices, ensuring better Wi-Fi coverage. Using another technology called MU-MIMO, the D-Link can send data to multiple clients simultaneously at their maximum supported speed.


HP Spectre x2

TABLET

$1,799

This tablet looks to give the Microsoft Surface Pro a run for its money. Like the Surface, it is a 12-inch tablet that can function as a laptop by attaching a keyboard accessory. A kickstand at the back props up the device.

The Spectre looks gorgeous with a matt grey aluminium back. Its display looks equally stunning with wide viewing angles and a 1,920 x 1,280-pixel screen resolution. Its Intel RealSense rear camera is able to capture objects in 3-D.
