The Transformer Book Trio is a combination of a notebook, tablet and desktop PC and has an 11.6-inch detachable display and runs on dual operating systems. The Transformer Book Trio transforms mobile flexibility by switching effortlessly between a Windows 8 notebook, Android tablet and Windows 8 desktop PC.
“We seek to perfect the balance between engineering and humanity, where every intricate detail echoes our needs for both emotion and function,” said Asus Chairman Jonney Shih.
The Transformer Book is an innovative combination of notebook, tablet and desktop PC for unparalleled flexibility in work, play, and social activity. The device 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.
“This is the ASUS way of Design Thinking, where every idea starts with people and we turn our imagination into myriad revolutionary innovations,” added Mr. Shih.
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.
