Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - LIVING TECH -

In a se­ri­ous ef­fort to breath fresh life into the de­clin­ing per­sonal com­puter, Asus has rein­vented the all-in-one desk­top. The unique new Asus AIO not only serves as a desk­top PC but also as a mon­ster sized, 18.4-inch tablet. To top this, the de­vices of­fers dual-boot­ing (Win­dows 8 in desk­top mode and An­droid 4.0 in tablet mode) at the the touch of a but­ton—the mo­ment you

pop it off its dock. Mak­ing it tick is In­tel’s third-gen­er­a­tion Core or Ivy Bridge pro­ces­sor. The 18.4-inch 10-point mul­ti­touch LED back­lit dis­play is backed by a dis­crete graph­ics card. An in­built kick stand al­lows you to prop up the gi­ant tablet when you’ve ditched its dock. While ex­act hard­ware spec­i­fi­ca­tions of the world’s largest tablet and its base are yet to re­leased by the com­pany, an ar­ray of ports, in­clud­ing USB 3.0, Eth­er­net LAN and an op­ti­cal drive could be spot­ted on of­fer.
