This configuration includes an Intel Core i3 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M GPU, 1TB HDD, and a detachable tablet with 18.4-inch 1080p Full HD resolution with 10-point multi-touch display featuring IPS technology with 178-degree wide viewing angles.

The ASUS Transformer AiO also offers dual-band Wi-Fi for high-performance wireless networking with compatible routers. 5GHz Wi-Fi significantly reduces interference from nearby 2.4GHz networks in crowded Wi-Fi areas. Also incorporated is the ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, which ensures outstanding sound quality for music, movies and everything in between.

A king-sized Windows 8 and Android tablet combined

When detached from the PC Station, ASUS Transformer AiO’s display can be used as two different types of king-size tablet. First, wireless Remote Desktop technology with dual-band Wi-Fi provides complete multi-touch control over Windows 8 on the PC Station for easy access to popular productivity and entertainment software around the home.

Alternatively, the 18.4-inch display can also be used as a standalone tablet with Android 4.1, thanks to its built-in NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor. ASUS Transformer AiO switches seamlessly between operating systems at the press of a button and has up to five hours’ battery life. The display also features a convenient carrying handle and a folding stand for comfortable tabletop use away from the PC Station.
