Asus launches Transformer AiO

Asus has revealed its latest offering in the form of the Transformer AiO, and all-in-one PC that includes a built-in detachable tablet

 

Asus is certainly fond of the hybrid devices. The Taiwanese company was successful with the Transformer Prime, has recently introduced the Padfone Infinity and today launched its latest product, a new all-in-one PC.

Except it isn't just an all-in-one as the new Asus Transformer AiO actually features a detachable display that can be used as a standalone tablet.

Intrigued? Of course you are. Allow us to explain further.

As it stands, the Asus Transformer AiO is a touchscreen-based Windows 8 machine built on a choice of 3rd generation Intel chips and a Nvidia GeForce GT730 graphics card. There's 2GB DDR3 RAM and up to 2GB of SATA storage. Typical connectivity is on board in the form of four USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 ports as well as HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-fi.

What makes it part of the Transformer range is the entire 18.4-inch display is detachable, runs Android 4.1, and becomes a stand-alone tablet running on it's own an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor.

The screen itself is a Full HD IPS panel with 10-point multitouch although, at 18.4-inches and 2.4kg, probably a little unwieldy for regular tablet usage.

While the product is undeniably cool - as we've come to expect from Asus, it's a little difficult to see exactly who this is being marketed at. What do you think of the Transformer AiO? Would you consider it for your office? Or at your house? Let us know in the comments section below.
