The 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor seamlessly switches between applications for effortless multi-tasking with Windows 8 apps, while Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 delivers an automatic burst of speed whenever it’s required. The Transformer Book lets the users Enjoy smooth HD movie playback, responsive gaming and incredible sound quality, thanks to ASUS SonicMaster audio technology.

Storage Options for Two Ways of Working

With two types of internal storage device, the ASUS Transformer Book works the way users want to. As a tablet, the 128GB SSD means apps launch instantly for a slick and seamless Windows 8 experience, while ASUS WebStorage ensures easy access to secure cloud storage when travelling far and wide. Connect ASUS Transformer Book to its notebook dock and it instantly becomes a fully functional notebook with up to a 500GB hard drive, with exclusive ASUS high-speed bridge technology that ensures blisteringly fast 5Gbit/s data transfer speeds.

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 keep on top of any productivity task.

Smart Battery Technology

ASUS Transformer Book has up to five hours’ battery life in full notebook mode and up to eight hours in tablet mode. Power Up! technology extends notebook battery life still further by disabling the dock’s hard drive and ports to leave the keyboard and touchpad active, giving up to eight hours’ use.

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 500GB hard drive, two USB 3.0 ports and Gigabit LAN, it’s a fully featured notebook with a built-in battery of its own.

No more waiting to work

With up to two weeks’ standby time 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 users 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 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. Four speakers in Notebook mode give an immersive listening 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.

High-Quality Cameras

With a front 720p HD and a rear 5-megapixel camera, ASUS Transformer Book is perfectly equipped for capturing high-quality images. Users can enjoy crystal-clear face-to-face video chat with family and friends, and simply tap the screen to take a photo.

Stay-Safe Power Supply

Accidentally tripping over a plugged-in notebook power lead risks damage to the lead, the notebook — and, worst of all, the user. 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.

Availability and Pricing

The ASUS Transformer Book™ will be available in India at an MRP of Rs. 91,999/- across select ASUS authorized retail outlets starting second week of July 2013.
