Asus T300

Sleek and durable design with cutting-edge multi-touch control

ASUS Transformer Book T300 features a sleek metallic design with a soft-touch finish that’s both durable and stylish. The 13.3-inch tablet display has a Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution for an expansive working space with razor-sharp images, while IPS technology ensures wide 178-degree viewing angles with excellent daylight visibility. Transformer Book also features cutting-edge multi-touch digitizer technology that detects a 6mm contact point, rather than the 9mm recommended by Microsoft for Windows 8. The result is a 10-point multi-touch display with high-precision input that’s perfect for the kind of fine fingertip control required by everything from spreadsheets to creative applications.

Portable and practical — perfect for work and play

Just 11.5mm thin, ASUS Transformer Book T300’s tablet display is extremely portable, but it’s also highly practical for use on the move, with built-in USB 3.0, a micro-HDMI ports, plus an LED battery charge indicator. The keyboard dock is equally slim, at just 11mm, and has a compact magnetic dock connector that releases and snaps to the tablet display in an instant. The dock features a full-size keyboard with backlit keys and a large multi-touch touchpad with Windows 8 gesture support. Transformer Book features a front 720p HD camera and a rear 1080p Full HD camera, plus stereo speakers powered by ASUS SonicMaster audio technology for loud, clear sound.
