All-in-one PC with detachable tablet: ASUS Transformer AiO

Mar 07, 2013

ASUS today 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.

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 with compatible routers. 5GHz Wi-Fi significantly reduces interference from nearby 2.4GHz networks in crowded Wi-Fi areas. ASUS SonicMaster also ensures outstanding for music, movies and everything in between.

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-. 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.
