Meet the ASUS Transformer 3


The ASUS Transformer 3 (T305CA) is a lightweight, stylish 2-in-1 PC that helps you pursue your passions, whatever they may be. The slim, sturdy construction is perfect for moving around day-to-day, while the ample processing power and vibrant screen provide everything you need to get things done. Let’s take a closer look.

Smart design

The core of the ASUS Transformer 3 is solid aluminum. This keeps it incredibly light at 695 g, but it also makes the body rigid and able to stand up to wear-and-tear. Besides, the spun-metal design with diamond-cut details and timeless color options (Icicle Gold and Titanium Gray) make it a gorgeous piece of hardware to look at, too.


An integral part of the design is the included ASUS Transformer Sleeve Keyboard. This wraps all the way around the ASUS Transformer 3 to protect it, while also providing fully-capable keyboard and trackpad. It can prop up the PC at two different angles, depending on your situation, and full backlighting keeps it practical in low-light. With 1.4 mm key travel distance, you’ll quickly find that typing on the Transformer 3 is just as comfortable as any traditional laptop.

A complete entertainment experience

The display of the ASUS Transformer 3 is your window to a broad digital world, and combined with a powerful audio system, it won’t be long until you’re completely immersed in your favorite content. The 12.6-inch LED display boasts a 3K resolution with an 85% NTSC color gamut. That translates to incredibly sharp and vibrant visuals. Behind the scenes, the Tru2Life Video engine tweaks every pixel on the screen to produce the very best contrast, sharpness, and brightness for what’s on-screen.

You’ll be hugely impressed with the audio quality of the ASUS Transformer 3. Four Harmon Kardon-powered speakers pump out a wide spread of stereo sound at a surprising volume level without any distortion. The ASUS Transformer 3 will also figure out which way you’re holding it and will intelligently adjust the direction of the sound accordingly.


With a 7th. generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor at its heart, and Windows 10 providing the foundation for the overall experience, you’ll be well-equipped for any challenge life throws at you. The USB-C port is markedly versatile. With it, you can plug into external 4K monitors with ease thanks to Thunderbolt 3 technology. This also allows for blisteringly fast data transfer speeds, at 80 times faster than USB 2.0. To extend your reach further, the Universal Dock has a full complement of USB and display ports, which can all be piped in through the ASUS Transformer 3’s USB-C slot.


Then there’s the ASUS Pen. This allows for more traditional input. Whether it’s handwriting notes during a meeting or sketching out ideas, the ASUS Pen is sensitive and accurate, resulting in speedy and fluid writing. The cherry on top is definitely the fingerprint scanner, which can secure your ASUS Transformer 3 while keeping access simple and straightforward.
