One device, two personalities.

We’ve seen hybrid devices that combine the best of tablets and laptops, but today ASUS decided to go one step further by revealing the Transformer AIO.

Featuring two CPUs and two OSes, the ASUS Transformer AIO is certainly going to be turning heads. When docked it’s an Intel i5 or i7 Windows 8 PC, but undocked it transforms into a Tegra 3-powered Android Jelly Bean tablet. Measuring 18.4 inches it’s a somewhat awkward size for either a tablet or desktop, and there are not details yet on whether you’ll be able to seamlessly share data between the desktop and tablet modes, given that they’re running two different operating systems.

The Transformer AIO will retail at around $1,299 with an i3 processor, with i5 and i7 versions being released at a later date.
