Asus’ 18.4-inch desktop/tablet combo goes on sale in the US for $1,300
The Asus Transformer AiO P1801 desktop/tab hybrid that was declared at CES 2013 is ultimately shipping to the masses.
The 18.5-inch all-in-one desktop computer can rapidly turn into a immense tab the moment you just actually want to grab the monitor and go sit down on the couch. It runs Windows eight in desktop mode and in tab form-factor Android Jelly Bean, where you'll be able to play games or surf the web from the sofa.
It has a bit of a baffling product, but we have to give props to Asus for being a little innovative here. After its January annunciation, it's now available for a cost tag of $1,299 to the folks in the United States.
Given it has all-in-one nature, you switch between the operating system's by the press of a button. There's even a handle on the back of the device to let you carry the tab element around as if it were a briefcase.
Specs for the P1801 are a third-generation Intel Core i5 CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GT 730M GPU, 8GB of random access memory, a 1-terabyte HDD, and DVD drive, most of which are tucked into the dock.
We are so used to making fun of phablets for their humongous take on phones, we do not even know where to begin with this insanely big tab.
At any rate, if you are so inclined for this fresh type of experience, you can get it at retailers like B&H. We have reached out to Asus for word on United Kingdom accessibility.
