ASUS Transformer Book Duet gives you the best of both worlds

In a growing market of me-too products, companies like Lenovo and ASUS are looking to stand apart from the pack with innovative designs and interfaces.
 
ASUS today announced the Transformer Book Duet that can run both Windows 8.1 and Android. While a dual-OS tablet is nothing new for ASUS, its previous generation products features a tablet that ran Android, and when docked with a keyboard (which included an onboard Intel Atom processor) would switch to Windows.

 
However, the Transformer Book Duet can switch between Windows 8.1 and Android 4.1 at the touch of a button — in either tablet mode or when docked with the keyboard. At the heart of the machine is a Core i3 for the base model along with a 1366x768 display. If you want to add on the options, you can select up to a Core i7 processor, 128GB SSD, and a 1080p display.
 
When you dock the tablet with the keyboard, you have access to up to a 1TB HDD, USB ports, Ethernet, and an HDMI port.

 

The Transformer Book Duet will start at $599 for a Core i3 model with the 1366x768 display. To get the 1080p display, you’ll have to pay an additional $100. There is, however, no pricing available for the Core i5 and i7 models.
