When Asus entered the Android world, they showed us a new take on tablets – the convertible, or what they call the transformer. And since then the Taiwanese company has continued to produce more and more Android and Windows convertible and last year they made another noise with their dual-booting Transformer Book Trio that can switch from Android to Windows OS with just a push of a button.
And for this year at CES 2014 Asus has officially announced thet world’s first quad-mode, dual-OS convertible – the Transformer Book Duet TD300.
The TD300 is powered by an Intel i7 processor and 4 GB of RAM and like the Transformer Book Trio, can switch from Android 4.2.2 to Windows 8.1 by clicking on the “switch” button. ASUS stated that what makes the TD300 diffferent from other dual booting devices is this “Instant Switch” technology where users will be able to pick up from where they left off in each OS profile.
The device features a 13.3-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS touchscreen display, and their trademark Asus SonicMaster audio technology that people had come to love in Asus computers. The Transformer Book Duet also has a front-facing HD camera with a built-in digital mic for video chats. And while the keyboard dock houses up to a 1TB hard disk drive. The dock is also home to USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, a LAN port, and HDMI 1.4 output with 1080p support. In terms of connectivity, ASUS Transformer Book T300 has 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 with EDR. Estimated battery life is around 5 hours in Windows and 6 hours in Android.
