ASUS showcased a dockable device at Computex 2013, the Transformer Book Trio , that runs both Android and Windows 8. This hybrid involves a laptop part and a tablet part and it came out during the pre Computex conference in Taipei.


We’re dealing with a Jelly Bean slate that’s applied on top of a keyboard dock with a powerful Intel Core i7 CPU and Windows 8 CPU. There are actually two CPUs inside this hybrid, one of them being a fourth generation Intel Core i7 U4500 for Windows and Android gets an Atom 2580. Storage is also divided into two: 1 TB of HDD and 64 GB of flash storage.

The display is a 11.6 inch Full HD IPS one and it appears that this device can be used in 3 modes: laptop, tablet and desktop, with a display connected to the dock with Core i7 CPU. The device has been designed with smooth transition in mind, so you can go from laptop mode in Windows 8 to Android and the tablet very fast.

    Ok Im in. Fantastic. Im committed to windowss 8 but very very frustrated with the non function and limited battery life . No android is not yet ready for full business use but has great battery life with the lite Atom ….. So now we get the best of both worlds…. Asus good job….. you are listening… :). Hold it are we missing the built in stylus? Sure hope not
