Asus Transformer AiO launched
The Asus Transformer AiO (All in One) has been touted to be the first all-in-one desktop PC which is capable of running not only Windows 8, but Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as well, in either desktop or tablet mode. Yeah, you read that right, Asus has taken off the kid’s gloves this time around with the Transformer AiO which certainly ups the ante when it comes to a dual-booting device.
It is incredibly innovative of Asus to do so, rolling out the Transformer AiO which offers users the option of a tablet’s mobility alongside the performance of a powerful desktop computer, all without having to compromise on design and functionality. The Transformer AiO is said to boast of a desktop PC Station that will feature 3rd generation Intel Core desktop processor technology which enables one to enjoy an outstanding Windows 8 performance, while the presence of a detachable 18.4-inch multi-touch display will carry NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor so that you can have fun with an optimum Android 4.1 Jelly Bean user experience.
The good news does not end there, either, as this particular innovation will allow the tablet to run Windows 8 in Remote Desktop mode, clearly making this a first of its kind in the world since no All-in-One PC has ever managed to offer such flexibility, innovation or design before, making Asus lay claim to such an exclusive device.
When it comes to connectivity options, the Asus Transformer AiO will not come up short, as you get a quartet of USB 3.0 ports, something that even high end Ultrabooks lack, in addition to an HDMI out port for you to hook up a monitor for extended display options, while the 18.4-inch LED-backlit display will boast of 1080p HD resolution alongside a 10-point multi-touch and IPS technology, enabling it to deliver bright, vibrant images with 178-degree wide viewing angles. Expect the Asus Transformer AiO to arrive sometime in Q2 2013 in North America, where it ought to start from $1,299 onward.
