Users can use it as a portable tablet, and then simply click it into the base station to transform into an AiO

ASUS has announced a tablet/All-in-One (AiO) hybrid device based on its popular Transformer line.

The ASUS Transformer AiO combines the qualities of a tablet and an AiO PC. Users can use it as a portable tablet, and then simply click it into the base station to transform into an AiO.

The Transformer AiO features an 18.4-inch, 10-point touch LED-backlit IPS display, a 3rd generation Intel Core processor, a NVIDIA Tegra quad-core processor for use as an Android tablet and ASUS SonicMaster technology for clear audio.

The ASUS Transformer AiO can also switch between the Windows 8 operating system and the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. In Android mode, the "display" can be removed from the base and used a standalone tablet. It can also be used in tablet mode while running Windows 8, however, it has to be within 30 feet or so of the base to communicate via Wi-Fi Direct.

Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

I am going to guess that the tablet has all the workings of an android tablet in it, you will be able to play all your android games on the couch. But when you put it in the docking station, I would like to thing all it does is take over the lcd display.

So instead of a dual boot, the docking station holds all the parts for windows, and uses the tablet as a monitor only, then when you undock it, it reverts back to the android tablet.

not a bad idea, but due to being a TF201 beta tester, I am a little Leary about jumping on-board with anything new ASUS puts out. I will wait for the second or third generation before I consider it. would make a good family computer, but not for my gaming.

After reading the official ASUS article, now I understand better. Even if you undock it, it runs windows 8, but since the tablet will have the tegra processor, you can switch it to android by pressing a button.

I will keep an eye on it, and hope to see it at a store so I can play with it a little, to see if it is any good.
