Transformer Book T302 features a detachable keyboard with an integrated secondary battery that extends T302’s total battery life up to 15 hours[1] when attached — currently the longest for any 12-inch-class 2-in-1 laptop.

At the heart of T302 is its remarkable 8.05mm-thin 12.5-inch tablet, which weighs a mere 750g for effortless portability. With the keyboard attached via its precision-engineered magnetic hinge, T302 transforms instantly into a productive laptop, powered by the latest 6th-generation Intel® Core™ M (‘Skylake’) processor and featuring a lightning-fast up to 512GB SSD, two USB Type-C ports and two full-size USB Type-A ports.
