To elaborate on the configuration of the slim notebook that can be converted into a tablet; first of all, ASUS Transformer Book comes with a 13.3-inch display with a Full HD IPS Touch panel along with a 178 Degree viewing angle. The convertible notebook is powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core i5 processor. Separate storage has been provided for the notebook and tablet with a high-capacity hard drive and an Ultra-fast 128GB SSD. The Asus Transformer Book is available with Windows 8 Professional. The device features Asus SonicMaster audio with Bang and Olufsen ICEpower.

As the name itself suggests, the Transformer Book can be used as a Windows 8 multi-touch tablet or a notebook with keyboard and touchpad. Asus Transformer Book can be connected to the notebook dock and it will become a fully functional notebook with up to a 500GB hard drive.
The Asus Transformer Book will be available in India at Rs. 91,999 across select ASUS authorized retail outlets starting second week of July 2013.
Here below in the slides, are the rest of the features that are incorporated in the highly priced 13.3-inch Asus Transformer Book.
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.
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.
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.
