Asus Transformer Book Trio at Computex 2013
Computex 2013 is a place where a fair number of companies has chosen to roll out the different kinds of products that they have in store for the market in the coming year, and since there is quite a fair number of hardware manufacturers that hail from Taiwan itself, it is no surprise to see them make full use of this “home ground” advantage, and Asus being one of the more celebrated companies has decided to roll out the Asus Transformer Book Trio. As you can see in the image above, it does seem to resemble a regular Ultrabook, but in reality, the Asus Transformer Book Trio comes in the form of an innovative combination of notebook, tablet and desktop PC with the aim of delivering unparalleled flexibility in work, play, and social activity.
Just what kind of hardware does the new Asus Transformer Book Trio pack underneath the hood? Well, one thing is for sure – you will not find it lacking in any way where graphical prowess is concerned, especially when this is deemed to be the first NVIDIA Tegra 4 tablet in the market to come with a stunning 2560 x 1600 resolution display. Apple would certainly have cause to be concerned with this new class of hybrid devices as their hegemony on the tablet market is challenged.
The Asus Transformer Book Trio, as its name suggests, is a three-in-one mobile device that happens to be a world’s first as well. Boasting an 11.6” detachable display and dual operating systems, the Transformer Book Trio would transform mobile flexibility by switching effortlessly between a Windows 8 notebook, Android tablet and Windows 8 desktop PC. Different operating systems would mean access to more than 700,000 apps in the Google Play Store and over 50,000 apps in the Windows Store.
The PC Station dock itself sports its own 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, keyboard and 750GB hard drive, and when the tablet display is detached, it can still work by hooking it up to an external display so that it functions as a desktop PC. Not only that, the PC Station also doubles up as a charger for the tablet for extended battery life. The tablet itself boasts of a 2.0 GHz Intel Atom processor and a 16:9 aspect ratio IPS display with Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution and up to 64GB storage. Seems as though interesting times are ahead of us, no?
