First announced several months ago at Computex 2013, ASUS has finally unveiled the Transformer Book Trio – a new ultraportable device with a two-part dockable design that can be used on its own as a notebook, or as a separate tablet and desktop PC. If that’s not enough, Transformer Book Trio switches between Windows 8 and Android operating systems at a simple press of a button to offer you unrivalled flexibility.
With a sleek and durable metallic design, ASUS Transformer Book Trio is powered by a 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor for outstanding multitasking performance and increased energy efficiency when in Windows 8 notebook mode. Transformer Book Trio can switch instantly between Windows 8 and Android 4.2 with a press of the “Trio” key.
When play time comes, the 11.6-inch display can be detached from its PC Station keyboard dock to become an Android tablet with its own Intel® Atom™ dual-core processor and up to 64GB of solid state storage.
The Full HD display with IPS technology gives you vibrant and accurate color with wide 178-degree viewing angles, allowing you to easily share what you have onscreen with friends and family. 10-point capacitive multi-touch gives you complete control whether in Windows 8 and Android mode.
That leaves us with the PC Station, which isn’t just a keyboard dock with a multi-touch touchpad. It is a self-contained Windows 8 desktop PC once connected to an external display is a mini DisplayPort or Micro-HDMI.
Both PC Station and tablet come with stereo speakers and ASUS SonicMaster audio technology to provide rich sound for your videos, music or games. When it comes to connectivity, there’s 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 in the PC Station, plus 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 in the tablet display. Separate batteries in the PC Station and tablet provide Transformer Book Trio with up to 13 hours of battery life for normal everyday use.
