Asus Transformer AIO – Release Date, Price and Other Details
Let’s assume for a moment that you’re in a position where not only is your tablet getting old, but your PC is not as good as it used to be either. Now, you may start wondering which one you should buy first, what brand you should chose, what OS should it support, what specs it should have and who knows what else? If thinking about such things makes you nauseous then we might have a solution for you. How about the Asus Transformer AIO? It’s a PC, a tablet, it runs on Windows 8 and Android as well. Yep, it’s an all-in-one package. More details below.
Asus Transformer AIO
The AIO is -as its name suggests and as established above- an all-in-one PC. To be more specific, the Transformer AIO is comprised of an 18.4 inch tablet and a decently powerful desktop PC that comes in the form of a monitor stand … more or less. The 18.4 inch 1080p display module acts as a monitor while attached to the desktop component, but once the display is detached, it becomes a rather oversized Tegra 3-powered tablet, featuring 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage expandable via microSD, a 1 MP camera on the front and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The desktop kickstand features an Intel Core i5 CPU (upgradable to an Intel Core i7), 8 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage that is also upgradable. There are also four USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, a 3-in-1 memory card slot, HDMI-out, Bluetooth 4.0, a DVD drive, WiFi and an Ethernet port.
As far as the price and availability goes, the Asus Transformer AIO is reportedly going to hit the market on April 12 and will arrive alongside a price-tag of 1,299, which actually sounds pretty darn good considering the fact that we’re looking at a rather decent Windows 8 PC and a Jelly Bean tablet featuring an 18.4 inch display. It definitely packs more hardware than the Surface Pro does.
