ASUS Transformer Book Trio 'Three-in-One' Ultraportable
ASUS today announced Transformer Book Trio, a new breed of ultraportable device with a two-part dockable design that can be used by one person as a laptop, or by two people as a separate tablet and desktop PC. With the ability to switch between Windows 8 and Android at the press of a button, Transformer Book Trio offers unmatched three-in-one flexibility for users who want the best of all mobile worlds.
Dual processors and dual operating systems
ASUS Transformer Book Trio features a sleek and durable metallic design, and is powered by a 4th generation Intel Core processor for seamless multi-tasking performance and outstanding energy efficiency in Windows 8 laptop mode. When it's time for entertainment to take over from productivity, the 11.6-inch display detaches from the 'PC Station' keyboard dock for use as a multi-touch Android tablet with its own Intel Atom dual-core processor and up to 64 GB of solid-state storage.
With the display docked, Transformer Book Trio can switch instantly between Windows 8 and Android 4.2 by pressing the dedicated 'Trio' key on the keyboard, with data shared between the two operating system's via the tablet's storage. Unlike other dockable ultraportables, Transformer Book Trio's PC Station isn't dead weight when the tablet display is detached. With an external display connected via Mini DisplayPort or Micro-HDMI, the PC Station can then be used as a self-contained desktop PC with Windows 8, which means Transformer Book Trio can be used by two people, in two different places, at the same time.
Full HD multi-touch display and SonicMaster audio technology
ASUS Transformer Book Trio's 11.6-inch display features a crisp Full HD resolution with IPS technology for vibrant and accurate color with wide 178-degree viewing angles. 10-point capacitive multi-touch gives instant fingertip control with both Windows 8 and Android, while the backlit keyboard and multi-touch touchpad ensures comfortable productivity use. With stereo speakers and ASUS SonicMaster audio technology in both the PC Station and tablet, Transformer Book Trio also delivers rich and detailed sound with video, music and games.
Power-packed portable performance
ASUS Transformer Book Trio doesn't sacrifice portability for the sake of versatility - or vice versa. With 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 in the PC Station, plus 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 in the tablet display, Transformer Book Trio cuts the need for cables, no matter which mode it's used in. Separate batteries in each part also maximize mobility, and Transformer Book Trio has up to 13 hours battery life in Android mode and five hours in Windows 8 mode.
