When ASUS Design received the product brief for the Transformer Book, three main points stood out: The resulting product had to be an elegant, high performance notebook and tablet; it had to integrate new technologies that shared data between its keyboard dock and tablet; and it had to be suitable for both work and play. As one designer put it, “Modern life moves quickly and we need to adapt constantly to our environment and tasks. That’s why we need devices that can intuitively and seamlessly switch from one mode to the other.” 

Enter the ASUS Transformer Book TX300 – the world’s first fully convertible notebook. Effectively two portable computers in one, the TX300 is a slim and lightweight ultraportable PC with a backlit keyboard and 500GB hard drive for work; it is also a 13.3-inch Full HD multi-touch tablet with a 128GB solid state drive for play.

ASUS Transformer Book TX300 can handle whatever the working world can throw at it thanks to its powerful 3rd generation IntelR Core™ i7 processor that has more than enough processing power for a multitude of tasks on Windows 8. If not, there’s IntelR Turbo Boost Technology for added oomph.

This transformation from tablet to notebook happens through a keyboard dock that houses the hard drive, additional battery, four speakers, as well as USB 3.0, and other I/O ports. A high speed bridge ensures ultra-fast transfer rates between the dock and the tablet. Whether used as a tablet or notebook, the TX300 turns heads thanks to its slim profile and unique spun metal finish.

ASUS Transformer Book TX300 has a 13.3-inch 10-point touch display with an ultra- wide viewing angle for stunning visuals in Full HD 1080p. The TX300 provides a finger-friendly Windows 8 experience whether you’re using the touchscreen or the large smart gesture trackpad. Nothing is further than a tap, swipe or two-finger pinch away. When you add ASUS SonicMaster enhanced audio and MaxxAudio sound processing by Waves, recipient of a Technical GRAMMY Award, to the equation – you get one impressive multimedia platform.

From where we’re standing, it looks like it ticks all the right boxes.
