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.
Battery Up Technology
ASUS Transformer Book has up to five hours battery life in full notebook mode and up to eight hours in tablet modei. 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’ usei.
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 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 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.

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.
