Ever wondered if your flat screen monitor could double as a tablet? Wonder no more. ASUS launched an All in One desktop PC whose display can serve as a stand alone 18.4 inch tablet.
The ASUS Transformer AiO runs Windows 8 in PC mode and either Windows 8 in remote desktop mode or Android 4.1 in stand-alone tablet mode. That needs to be clarified. But first, here’s the dock stand without the display screen.
Some quick specs. The ASUS Transformer AiO runs on a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor when in Windows 8 PC mode. In stand alone tablet mode, its display runs on its own NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor. The desktop sports an NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 730M graphics, and has an array of ports (including USB 3.0). Here’s the Android tablet mode.
The 18.4 inch LED-backlit display has a 1080p Full HD resolution with 10-point multi-touch, and features IPS technology for a bright and vibrant image. It also features a 178-degree wide viewing angles. When detached from the dock station, the ASUS Transformer AiO display can be used either as a “dependent tablet”, dependent on the dock station through wireless Remote Desktop technology with dual-band Wi-Fi. That means Windows 8 runs on the tablet. Here’s the Windows 8 “tablet”.
Yes, there’s a kick stand. At a touch of a button, the AiO switches between Windows 8 and Android. (Sometimes I wish my iPad could switch between iOS and Android. Sigh.) Anyway, stand alone tablet battery stamina is 5 hours. The ASUS Transformer AiO will be available by the end of March 2013 with an SRP of PhP 59,995.
