Asus' New Misfit: All-In-One PC Meets Android Tablet

By Tony Ibrahim | Thursday | 07/03/2013

Converting a portable laptop into a portable tablet makes sense, but what about transforming an All-in-One Windows PC into an Android tablet?

It sounds contradictory, right? Not to Asus it doesn't.

"Don't do it Asus, think of the hurdles! What about the conflicting operating system? Or the fact people don't want to lug around an 18.4 inch tablet." That's just a few things I'd like to cry at Asus. Mind you, my efforts would be wasted as the company will begin shipping its Transformer AiO P1801 in the US in just a few months.

It's an 18.4 inch all in one PC that runs Windows 8 and is powered by an Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processor. Customers can nominate up to 8GB of RAM and 2TB of storage, making it camouflage perfectly with other all-in-one PCs on paper.

But separating this computer from the pack is its detachable touchscreen. The screen—which is 18.4 inches of Full HD clarity—packs its own processing innards for use as a separate tablet. It has a quad-core Tegra 3 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and runs Google's Android 4.1 software.


Interestingly, DigitalTrends claim it is possible to run Windows 8 on the tablet by using Asus' Remote Desktop Technology. This software does give the abdominal form factor some credence as you can work on Excel spread sheets at the Office and then Android games during your downtime.

There's no official word on whether Asus will bring its Transformer AiO to Australia to join its other hybrid devices, including their Taichi hybrid and their Transformer tablet-computer, or if this Frankenstein-like machine will skip our shores all together. In the US, the Core i3 Transformer AiO has a retail starting price of $1,299.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
