Description

The ASUS Transformer Book Trio is a dual-boot Android/Windows 8 tablet. The Trio tablet features an 11.6-inch 1080p display, and is powered by an Intel Atom Z2560 1.6GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. You'll get the choice of either 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage. The tablet side of course has Android 4.2 on board. The keyboard dock is where you'll find the power for the Windows 8 side of things. For that, you'll get a choice of processor up to an Intel Core i7 Haswell chip, 4GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage. One interesting thing is that the keyboard dock can be hooked up to an external display and used independently of the tablet display.
