Top 5 accessories for your new ASUS Transformer 3 (Pro)
The ASUS Transformer 3 (T305) and ASUS Transformer 3 Pro (T303) are great on their own, but there’s a whole range of official accessories that can expand the possibilities. Let’s take a closer look at what’s available.
1. ASUS Cover Keyboard and Sleeve Keyboard
Both the ASUS Transformer 3 and the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro come with keyboards that protect the screen when not in use. They both have a generous 1.4 mm key travel distance, backlighting for working in the dark, and a large touchpad with multitouch support. The Sleeve Keyboard folds up to prop the ASUS Transformer 3 at two different angles, as per your preference. Leave it upright for day-to-day work, or bring it low to use alongside the ASUS Pen. The Keyboard Cover magnetically clips to the base of the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro to either angle upwards while typing, or stay flat on the desk. You can pick up either keyboard in Stone, Charcoal, Taupe, and Amber colors.
2. ASUS Pen
The ASUS Pen helps you get more done, regardless of whether you’re sketching out concepts or taking meeting notes. With 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, +/- 0.5 mm precision, and a 0.2 mm tip, writing with the ASUS Pen feels natural and fluid. Two hardware keys on the grip provide additional control for tasks like erasing, and a clip helps keep it secure either in your pocket or the built-in cover holder. Integration with Windows Ink makes it easy to mark up screenshots and take notes in the native interface.
3. ASUS Audio Pod
To really crank out the tunes, check out the ASUS Audio Pod. This four-speaker system pairs up over Bluetooth and offers 5.1-channel virtual surround-sound in a 360-degree radius. The surprisingly deep bass and high volume output are ample for filling the room with audio from games, movies, playlists, or anything else you happen to be enjoying on your ASUS Transformer 3 or ASUS Transformer 3 Pro.
4. ASUS Mini Dock and Universal Dock
Two expansion bays using USB-C are available, depending on your needs. The Mini Dock and affords a quick connection for full-sized USB, USB-C, and HDMI. The Universal Dock includes absolutely everything. It hosts two full-sized USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C 3.1 slot, HDMI and VGA ports for displays, an ethernet LAN jack, a 3-in-1 SD card reader, and audio jacks for both a speaker and microphone. This makes it incredibly simple to plug into your home office and be instantly connected to everything you need.
5. ROG XG Station 2
The ROG XG Station 2 is an amazing piece of kit built for the modern hardcore gamer. The enclosure allows for a full-blown desktop-grade NVIDIA GTX1080 video card to plug into your ASUS Transformer 3 and ASUS Transformer 3 Pro over simple USB-C. With that amount of processing power, you can enjoy VR games and 4K resolution on external displays. With this sitting at home, you can really unwind without having to lug around a massive gaming laptop throughout the day.
And plenty more!
