ASUS has launched the Transformer AiO which offers home users the benefits of both a desktop PC as well as a large 18.4in tablet within a single device.
The detachable tablet features a 1080p full HD 10 touchscreen with a wide viewing angle. It also has 1GB RAM, 32GB flash storage and a 1.0-megapixel camera.
When detached from the desktop PC Station, the tablet weighs 2.4kg. It has a built-in foldable stand for propping it up on, say, a table and the viewing angle is adjustable.
The Transformer AiO features two operating systems - Windows 8 and Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Users can switch operating systems with just a push of the Mode Key which is located along the side of the tablet.
Also, when detached from the PC Station, the tablet can still be used to view content from the Windows 8 platform remotely.
Meanwhile, in PC mode (with the tablet docked to the PC Station) the device gets 8GB RAM, 2TB of storage, SonicMaster audio technology and an nVidia GeForce GT730M 2GB graphics chip.
The Transformer AiO is sold together with a wireless keyboard and mouse and is priced at RM4,999. It is currently available in stores nationwide.
