Asus has revealed for a second time, after Computex 2012, the hybrid desktop all-in-one tablet, Transformer AiO. It will be running both Windows 8 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It also has a giant screen size for a tablet, an 18.4-inch. As with Transformer tablets, it does have a special docking mount.
Not only featuring two OS, Transformer AiO also have two processors. An Intel Core i5 or i7 on the docking mount and NVIDIA Tegra 3 on the tablet itself. The specs ?
The 18.4-inch LED-backlit, IPS display supports 10-point multitouch and a resolution of 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels. My one gripe with it is that it has one of the largest air gaps between the glass and the LCD beneath I’ve seen in a while. (A large air gap between the screen and its glass covering can increase glare and reduce the display’s perceived clarity.)
You can use the tablet on Windows 8 while it’s connected wirelessly to a PC base station; however, when you exceed the Wi-Fi range (the range has yet to be finalized) it will switch to being an Android tablet. The base station packs a ton of connectivity, including four USB 3.0 ports.
According to PC World, Asus Transformer AiO will be available in the first quarter of 2013 with starting price of $1299 for the Intel i5 Core and 1TB Drive on the base station and 32GB EMMC SSD storage on the tablet itself.
