[CES 2013] It does seem to be all about convergence devices these days, and Asus follows suit with their Asus Transformer AiO, a particularly weird device in a sense where it will merge the functionality of a desktop PC and that of a tablet – seamlessly switching between the two, while boasting of dual operating systems so that users are able to choose on whether they want to run Windows 8 or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, depending on the situation that they are in at the moment.
Basically, the Asus Transformer AiO will feature Windows 8 while sporting an extended 18.4”, 10-point touch LED-backlit IPS display, running on a third generation Intel Core processor technology, coming in a compact, versatile design with height and tilt adjustments. Apart from that, it will also boast of Asus SonicMaster technology that delivers crystal-clear sound through its integrated speakers.
Thanks to its 18.4-inch Full HD display that is easily removed from its base station in order for it to end up as a wireless display, it will go some way in extending the range of your machine, while working around the home. Of course, toting a 18.4” “tablet” around is not exactly the stuff that most folks would want to considering the bulk and weight, but that’s the price to pay for flexibility, so to speak. Thanks to the NVIDIA Tegra quad-core processor, it is sufficient to see the removable display function as an Android tablet.
