Precision-Engineered Ultra-Portability Design
ASUS Transformer Book is the world's thinnest Windows 8 tablet with a 3rd generation Intel® CoreT i7 processor. Featuring a sleek profile and with a precision-engineered spun metal finish design as the result of a sophisticated 32-step manufacturing process, the Transformer Book is as striking as it is resilient and is perfect proof of the ASUS spirit of persistent perfection.
Whether used as a Windows 8 multi-touch tablet or a notebook with keyboard and touchpad, ASUS Transformer Book always has incredible performance on tap. Pre-installed with the 3rd generation Intel® CoreTM i7 processor, the Transformer Book seamlessly switches between applications for effortless multitasking with Windows 8 apps, while Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 delivers an automatic burst of speed whenever it's required.
Storage Options for Two Ways of Working
With two types of internal storage options, ASUS Transformer Book works the way you want to. As a tablet, the 128GB SATA III SSD launches your favorite apps up to 4x faster than traditional hard drives for a smooth and seamless experience. Connect ASUS Transformer Book to its notebook dock and it instantly becomes a fully functional notebook with SATA III SSD speed and an additional 500GB hard drive, with exclusive ASUS high-speed bridge technology that ensures blisteringly fast 5Gbit/s data transfer speeds.
Battery Up Technology
ASUS Transformer Book has up to five hours battery life in full notebook mode and up to eight hours in tablet mode1. Featuring Battery Up Technology, it disables the keyboard dock's hard drive and ports to leave only the keyboard and touchpad active, therefore extending the battery life when used as a notebook even further up to eight hours' use1.
Seamless Chiclet Style Backlit Keyboard
In Notebook mode, ASUS Transformer Book features a backlit keyboard with ambient light control that automatically adjusts its brightness to suit the surroundings, making it easy to stay productive at all times.
More Than a Mobile Dock
ASUS Transformer Book has a mobile dock that's more than just a backlit keyboard and smart gesture touchpad. With a traditional notebook hinge design, it provides users the flexibility to position the display at different angles when docked for a more comfortable viewing experience. With a 500GB hard drive, two USB 3.0 ports and Gigabit LAN, it's practically a fully featured notebook with a built-in battery of its own.
No More Waiting
With up to two weeks' standby time1 in Notebook mode, there's no need to waste time waiting for ASUS Transformer Book to shut down, while two-second resume from standby means it's ready for action when you are.
Brilliant High-Definition Display
ASUS Transformer Book features a Full HD display with 1080p resolution and IPS technology for an incredibly crisp and detailed image, with a wide 178° viewing angle. Multi-touch support gives full fingertip control with Windows 8 too, while a Mini Display Port makes it easy to connect an HDTV for big-screen viewing.
Superior Sound Quality
Developed with the audio experts at Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, ASUS SonicMaster technology delivers outstanding cinematic sound quality. The four speakers in Notebook mode provide an immersive audio experience and MaxxAudio provides fully customizable EQ control for perfect results with movies, music and games. Audio recording is crystal-clear too, thanks to a high quality array mic that filters background noise.
With a front facing 720p HD camera and rear-facing 5-megapixel camera, ASUS Transformer Book is perfectly equipped for capturing high-quality images. Enjoy crystal-clear video chat with family and friends, and simply tap the screen to take photos.
Stay-Safe Power Supply
Accidentally tripping over a plugged-in notebook power lead risks damage to the lead, the notebook - and, worst of all, you. Transformer Book solves this problem with a clever power lead that doesn't plug into a socket, but snaps onto it magnetically. A firm tug is enough to break the connection safely, so there's no risk of dragging Transformer Book off a desk by snagging its power lead, or having it snatched from your hands if you pick it up when still plugged in.
32GB ASUS WebStorage
Need more storage capacity? The ASUS Transformer Book comes with complimentary 32GB of cloud storage from ASUS WebStorage2 for three years (valued at $49.99). Now you can access large presentation files or countless music and movies to enjoy anywhere.
Relax, ASUS got you covered!
