Transforming Notebook Expectations- ASUS Transformer Book Trio

The ASUS Transformer Book Trio is the world’s first three-in-one mobile device. With an 11.6-inch detachable display and dual operating systems, Transformer Book Trio transforms mobile flexibility by switching effortlessly between a Windows 8 notebook, Android tablet and Windows 8 desktop PC. Transformer Book Trio switches easily between operating systems to give users access to over 700,000 apps in the Google Play Store and over 50,000 apps in the Windows Store.

Despite the different operating systems, the Transformer Book Trio has been designed to smoothly transition between modes, allowing users to sync data or continue to surf the webpage they’re on even when moving from notebook to tablet mode.

The PC Station dock has its own 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, keyboard and 750GB hard drive, and with the tablet display detached, can be hooked up to an external display for use as a desktop PC. The PC Station also serves as a charger for the tablet for extended battery life. The tablet features 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.

    I find this the most useless of hybrids! As it’s doubtful that once you detach the screen you’ll be able to access W8?! (Not the first example of this either! They showed something similar last year?!)

    If Asus Transformer Book Trio had been a Win 8 tablet and used the Atom in tablet mode and the i7 in laptop mode that would have been super cool.
