ASUS 18.4 inch Windows 8/Android desktop and tablet combo now on sale in the states
We've been over the specs before, including the Intel Core i5 processor upgradeable to an i7. Crunching graphics is the Nvidia GeForce GT 730M GPU, with 8GB of RAM aboard, and a 1-terabyte HDD. The tablet side is powered by a Tegra 3 processor which stays out of the way until you remove the screen from the dock.
What brings this device to mind is its availability in the U.S. from retailer B&H for $1,259.23. We can't imagine that anyone would want to carry around an 18.4 inch tablet, but if you are interested, click on the sourcelink below. In the meantime, check our ASUS Transformer AiO P-1801 Hands-on by clicking on this link.

No he means why didn't it ship with a tegra 4 or something.

It means its still not available yet. The processor still is not being use. As for the very first Tegra 4. Toshiba tables will be using this Processor, next month or June maybe..

Tegra 4 isn't going to be in any products until probably around June/July at the earliest. The real question is why they didn't use a Snapdragon processor instead. I am guessing the reason was due to costs.

The price isn't fair in my opinion. A laptop with the same specs costs around $600, with latest 3rd gen i7 quad-core which i doubt the asus will have. And i don't see how anyone can make use of an 18.5" android screen. What is one going to do, take it off the dock sit on the couch and play with it?... I don't think so, is huge! and heavy! I think of it as a joke, i can't believe we're in 2013 and companies like Asus still make dumb devices. They need to start thinking out of the box and create something spectacular. Anyway..

it means, 600$+ for the Windows and another 600$+ for the android. Fair enough..

Let's not criticize them for expanding their horizons. Yes, they started a phone only site. Then Tablets. This isn't just a standard "desktop".
