Is a laptop? It is a tablet? It Is Windows? Is Android? Yes, the new product from Asus, the Transform Book Duet is all this at the same time. The device, announced on Monday, 6, at CES is the newest resort of the company in the branch of the hybrid, not only changed the hardware but also the operating system.
The company, which had already launched the Transformer Book Trio, with a similar proposal, has changed things a bit: now there is only one processor working in the region of the screen and is a quad-Core Intel Core i7 processor, able to support both Windows 8.1 and Android Jelly Bean when the part with the keyboard is disconnected.
The screen alone also account with up to 128 GB of SSD. When the whole system is mounted, however, the user can benefit from up to 1 TB of HD and USB inputs. Already the display is 13 inches, and its resolution can vary between 720p and 1080p, depending on the price range chosen by the user.
Asus says that its tablet/laptop is the first “4-in-1” market, since that toggles between the functions of the laptop with Windows and with Android, and tablet with the two operating systems. In fact, with so much variety, the only thing that it does is to run iOS applications.
The company also says that the battery can last up to 10 hours, and that in order to switch between the operating systems just the push of a button, with no need for reboot, which it gives to understand that both programs run simultaneously and independently. The exchange between systems takes about 4 seconds, says Asus.
