The stunning all-aluminum body — which is a mere 8.85mm thin and weighs just 1.78lbs — is packed with everything users need for maximum productivity and effortless creativity. Powered by a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor with up to 16GB of RAM, the Transformer Pro blasts through the toughest tasks, and the solid state drives (up to 512GB SSD) delivers quick app load and boot times.
The Transformer Pro comes with a charcoal grey backlit keyboard with 1.4mm key travel. For easy and comfortable use in any scenario, the Transformer Pro features an integrated full-width metal kickstand fitted with a step-less any-position hinge that allows the display to be positioned at any angle up to 170° from the horizontal.
The ASUS SonicMaster Premium audio system, certified by Harmon Kardon, delivers clear, powerful stereo sound for an immersive entertainment experience.
The Transformer Pro includes the high-precision ASUS Pen; an accurate and intuitive stylus that allows users to unleash their creativity.
The Ultimate Take-Anywhere Performance
The ASUS Transformer Pro is designed to give users the ultimate on-the-go performance and convenience in an ultra-compact form factor. It is powered by the latest 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with up to 16GB of fast LPDDR3 RAM for maximum productivity. Fast storage is provided by a up to 512GB SSD, which reduces boot times and allows apps to load quickly.
Aimed at the serious traveler, the Transformer Pro reduces the need for carrying adapters and dongles by including a full-size standard HDMI port for connecting instantly to projectors, monitors or even big-screen TVs. It also has a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C™ (USB-C™) port and a full-size USB 3.0 Type-A port for fuss-free connections to any USB device, along with a micro SD Card reader for added mobile convenience. Transformer Pro makes connecting on the go easier than ever.
Type in Great Style
The all-aluminum ASUS Transformer Pro is finished in a cool and sophisticated Pure Silver color, and comes with a sleek charcoal grey detachable keyboard. The backlit keyboard is designed to be the best ultra-slim keyboard available, with 1.4mm key travel which exceeds that of most slim mobile keyboards. The key mechanisms and silica-gel actuator domes are engineered for optimum sensitivity and tactile feedback, ensuring a comfortable laptop-like typing experience.
View It, Your Way
Traditional tablet stands often restrict the choice of viewing angle. The ASUS Transformer Pro has an integrated full-width metal kickstand with a 155° any-position step-less hinge that lets users set the screen at almost any angle they wish — up to an almost-horizontal 170°. So whether sitting or standing at a desk, drawing on the sofa, or watching movies on the study floor, the versatile ASUS Transformer Pro allows the user to do it all in total comfort.
The gorgeous 12.6-inch touchscreen on the ASUS Transformer Pro has a high-resolution (2160 x 1440) resolution with a pixel density of 206ppi for super-fine detail. The display has a wide color gamut of 100% sRGB for accurate, natural-looking colors, and the wide 178° viewing angle minimizes color and contrast degradation when sharing the screen in a group.
Powerful, Immersive Sound
The ASUS Transformer Pro is engineered to deliver an immersive audio experience. Its stereo speakers are combined with smart-amplifier technology to deliver powerful sound that boosts their normal loudness by 100%. The ASUS SonicMaster Premium audio system — certified by audio experts Harman Kardon — harnesses this power to provide rich, crystal-clear, distortion-free audio at any volume.
The ASUS Pen is an active stylus with a slim and elegant aluminum design and a premium feel. It is the perfect accessory for the ASUS Transformer Pro, with a pressure-sensitive tip that detects 1024 pressure levels to replicate a natural writing experience. With up to 10 months of use from a single battery, the ASUS Pen can be used without fear of it running out of power.
The ASUS Pen allows intuitive and natural interaction with the ASUS Transformer Pro’s gorgeous touchscreen. Users can draw, write or annotate intuitively directly on the device, jotting down ideas or annotating photos taken with the front or rear cameras, or simply indulging their artistic creativity by using the ASUS Transformer Pro as a drawing pad.
