The 18.4 inch screen boasts a resolution of 1920x1080 and a 10-point touch LED-backlit IPS display, which can detach from its base in order to be used as a traditional tablet.
Powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core processor for running Windows 8 applications and an Nvidia Tegra quad-core processor for Android (4.1 Jelly Bean), users can choose between either platform at "the press of a button".
Accompanied by height and tilt adjustments, the super-sized tablet also features Asus' SonicMaster technology, which the company claims to offer "crystal-clear sound" via its integrated speakers.
A launch period wasn't revealed for the Transformer AiO. However, the firm did reveal pricing details: the tablet will start at $1,299 with an Intel Core i3 processor, with higher prices for the versions housing Intel Core i5 and i7 chips.

Finally, a tablet that is useable out-of-the-box...Reply
For those that want to see the tablet/pc AIO (sort of) in action, Linus on Linus Tech Tips has video of this.Reply
I think the screen size is too small for a desktop, too big for a tablet...Reply
my arm feels tire just looking at the picture. :(Reply
zivgt2I think the screen size is too small for a desktop, too big for a tablet...Reply
but at least, it's smaller, rather have a 22" tablet... :Da 18,5" should capable for standard work and still fun to play with...
I remember when I tried Win 8 13" notebook. the text so small and makes my eye squint every time.
Dat battery life..................Reply
Do want. I disagree that it's too big for a tablet and too small for a monitor. Anything tablet size by definition should be suitable as a monitor, unless you set your monitor way back on your desk or mount it near the ceiling or something. The distance from your face to your lap should not be terribly closer than sitting at at desk. And I would love a tablet that was much closer to traditional laptop size. 18.4 is the largest laptop you can get, so I've no problem with an 18.4" tablet. The price worries me a little. At that size I wouldn't expect much from battery life. I'll have to consider this a bit, but even with the nice touches the price is a little steep for a tablet (or at least more than I'm willing to spend on one).Reply
18.5" Touch screen *" Tablet or Surface computer "* , I think ASUS Not know about what is tablet . cellphone (2.5"screen) now many companies said upto 5.0" in 2013 ; I think upto 3.0" is the limit for mobiles because my pocket is smaller then 5"; next tablets 7.0" is limit because already 10" laptops available and laptops are high speed then tablets , 10" laptops low cost then 10"tablets ; next laptops 15" is limit but 17" only for gamers ;Reply
so this is a touch screen desktop or Surface computer not a tablet because 15" laptops are upto 5kgs (with bag) so how can take 18.5" to anywhere Iam going.
I5 desktop for $800 , upto $200 for tablet . total only 1000$ sava 300$ and also its not i3 processor.Reply
Having two separate OS environments kills it. This is not convenience, it's annoyance. You cannot use or take away anything that you had open on you dock, if you take away the screen...
Surface Pro and the likes have gotten things right, since they are fully fledged tablet PCs. You do not have to change the environment once you leave the dock: your pages, docs, movies and w/e keep on rolling seamlessly.
Now had they foregone the dock hardware and integrated it into the actual tablet, would make this - you guessed it, a full blown usable PC. What's ~600 more grams to that behemoth anyway?
For all your Android needs, you can get a cheap, real tablet.
