ASUS has announced ASUS Transformer AiO, the world’s first All-in-One PC with a detachable display that can also be used as a standalone tablet around the home.
ASUS Transformer AiO consists of a desktop PC Station with a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ desktop processor for outstanding Windows 8 performance, and a detachable 18.4-inch display with its own NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor for use as a self-contained tablet with Android 4.1.
ASUS Transformer AiO gives users the mobile flexibility of a tablet with the performance of a powerful desktop PC, all in one compact and stylish package.
Powerful All-in-One PC performance
ASUS Transformer AiO is a powerful all-in-one PC capable of handling a wide range of demanding Windows 8 productivity and entertainment applications. Designed for desktop use, its PC Station is powered by a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ desktop processor with NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 730M graphics and features a comprehensive array of ports, including USB 3.0.
Its 18.4-inch LED-backlit display has a 1080p Full HD resolution with 10-point multi-touch and features IPS technology for a bright, vibrant image with 178-degree wide viewing angles for easy shared enjoyment.
ASUS Transformer AiO also features dual-band Wi-Fi for high-performance wireless networking with compatible routers. 5GHz Wi-Fi significantly reduces interference from nearby 2.4GHz networks in crowded Wi-Fi areas. ASUS SonicMaster audio technology also ensures outstanding sound quality for music, movies and everything in between.
A king-sized Windows 8 and Android tablet combined
When detached from the PC Station, ASUS Transformer AiO’s display can be used as two different types of king-size tablet. First, wireless Remote Desktop technology with dual-band Wi-Fi provides complete multi-touch control over Windows 8 on the PC Station for easy access to popular productivity and entertainment software around the home.
Alternatively, the 18.4-inch display can also be used as a standalone tablet with Android 4.1, thanks to its built-in NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor. ASUS Transformer AiO switches seamlessly between operating systems at the press of a button and has up to five hours’ battery life. The display also features a convenient carrying handle and a folding stand for comfortable tabletop use away from the PC Station.
