Asus Transformer Book Trio hands-on

0. phoneArena posted on 05 Sep 2013, 08:44

The Transformer Book Trio display part sports an 11.6" Full HD panel, and is powered by a lowly Intel Atom Z2760 1.6 GHz dual-core processor plus 2 GB of RAM. It will come in 16, 32, or 64 GB capacities. That tablet side of things is running Android 4.2.2, and you can't use it as a Windows slate. It, however, is 304.9 x 193.8 x 9.7mm, and weighs 700g, so lugging it around won't be fun...

talk about utterly pointless... doesn't even allow you to use Windows from just the slate portion in favour of android.... why bother? be far more useful to just have Windows by itself...

Right, but on the other hand you can use both at the same time... Tablet as Android, and keyboard as Windows attached to an external screen (TV)...

So basically an average spec Tablet, with an entry level Windows 8 PC that can be used together or individually...

For example, my wife needs a basic notebook, and I was looking for the Asus X202E, which is a 500$ W8 touchscreen machine... However if priced right, this Transformer might be a better purchase since we do not have a tablet in the house, and she could still use the Windows part if the tablet is being used... I would pay 600-700$ tops for this...
