ASUS launches Transformer AiO

ASUS is taking their Transformer lineup to a whole new level with the announcement of the ASUS Transformer AiO, the world’s first all-in-one desktop PC that is capable of running Windows 8 or Android 4.1 in desktop or tablet mode.


Simply put, the ASUS Transformer AiO is an attempted marriage of an AiO desktop and an Android tablet. When used as a desktop, the Transformer AiO becomes a Windows 8 machine via PC Station which sports a 3rd generation Intel Core processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB of SATA hard drive, and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M GPU. Now for the fun part, pull out the 18.4-inch LED-backlit Full-HD IPS display from the PC Station and you now have a full blown Android Jellybean tablet with a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.

    Guys its an 18.4″ tablet that you don’t carry all the time. The point is you can do your entertainment or work around the whole house.

    You can even put it into the bathroom if you want. Its something for the whole house, unlike other AiOs na in just one room.

    I personally think this is an innovative idea. I agree with Richard that it’s not meant to be carried around like your normal tablet.

    It’s probably meant to be portable to enable it to used outside of a specific room or in an office. For example, looking up recipes while cooking, watching tv while cleaning, or say you want an intimate movie night at the garden.

    In an office setting, you can unhook it and then make conference video-conference calls from one room to the next or take it with your when you go to another part of the office to do presentations.

    The possibilities are exciting enough, and i think there will be a market for it. The adoption by almost all PC Brands of AiO’s appears to be a testament to that. Lenovo and HP have their own versions of touch-enabled AiO’s. Asus took it a step further and made it portable (as portable as an 18″++ tablet could be). :)

    An 18.4″ Tablet?!? Holy fuck I want one. Always a sucker for huge shit. I wanna whip *that* out at Starbucks!

  11. ganda namn ng specs. sulit na sulit na sa 53k.

  12. ..I can’t find my checkbook!.. I don’t have cash for this..

  13. huh? a super large tablet? why don’t they just make it a little bit more smaller? it’s kinda “mabigat” or heavy. pero nakakaamaze naman siya because it has two operating systems.. masaya. :)
