This is really exciting for users like me who want to be able to dual boot into a full desktop operating system, but still being able to stay mobile by booting Android.
ASUS Transformer AiO — the world’s first all-in-one PC with a detachable tablet
Transformer AiO is the world’s first All-in-One PC with a detachable display that doubles as a standalone tablet for three distinct modes of use. Transformer AiO is a fully featured desktop PC with Windows 8, and is powered by a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor with NVIDIA® GT 730M graphics for outstanding multi-tasking and entertainment performance. The 18.4-inch Full HD IPS display delivers brilliant images with 178-degree wide viewing angles for easy enjoyment with friends and family, while ASUS SonicMaster audio technology ensures an immersive listening experience with music, movies and everything in between.
With its display detached from the desktop PC Station, Transformer AiO instantly becomes a king-size tablet with two different operating systems to suit different tablet needs. Wireless Remote Desktop technology maintains a high-speed wireless connection to the PC Station for complete remote control of Windows 8 using the multi-touch display. Alternatively, Transformer AiO seamlessly switches into a self-contained Android 4.1 tablet with an NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor at the touch of a button. The integral handle makes it easy to carry the tablet from room to room and a built-in stand keeps the display at the perfect angle for tabletop use.
I hope they change Android 4.1 to 4.2, but only time will tell. I can only speculate on how well this tablet will actually perform running Windows 8 when placed against the Samsung Smart Ativ or the Asus Vivo Tab, heck even the Surface. Yet, what is really going to impress me is how well this tab can dual boot. How long will Android take to load up? Will i take forever due to the chip switch?
