Invasion of the tabletop tablets: Are these fiendishly clever hybrids the ultimate family PCs?

 

You can thank Windows 8 for this bold new experiment: touchscreen all-in-one computers that can move all around the house.

Two computers in one ; Desktop Core i5 processor ; 1TB, 7200 rpm hard drive

Mode switching can be clumsy ; Webcam nonfunctional in Android mode ; No HDMI input on either base or tablet

Asus Transformer AIO (P1801-B037K)

 

Asus looks to science fiction for inspiration with the Transformer AIO (P1801-B037K), an all-in-one Win8 desktop and portable Android tablet combined.

Splashtop lets you use Windows 8 around the house. Can use Android apps. Speedy quad-core processor and discrete graphics. Four USB 3.0 ports. Quick switch between environments.

Some lag on tablet when out of dock. Webcam not accessible to Windows when away from dock. Mouse and keyboard have limited range. No HDMI-in. Crashes in either OS can make the system seem unresponsive.

You'll have to go through an extended setup process on the Transformer AIO, which includes logging into Windows and logging into the Android Jelly Bean environment. You can set up a local login in Windows, but for Jelly Bean you'll need a Google...

Asus Transformer AIO review

 

The Sony Vaio Tap 20 introduced us to the idea of the all-in-one/tablet hybrid device. Asus has taken that concept, slathered it with Asus' particular brand of experimental enthusiasm , and brought it to life in the form of the $1,299 Transformer AIO.

The Asus Transformer AIO delivers a fast Windows 8 all-in-one, a giant Android tablet, and an effective platform for using them in tandem.

Remote desktop technology makes using Windows 8 in tablet mode unreliable, and you might prefer to wait to buy until later this year when the category has matured.

You'd be smart to wait and see how the market develops, but Asus has used the freedom of the still-forming all-in-one/tablet hybrid category to create a compelling Windows 8/Android device in the Transformer AIO.

Detachable screen gives you a jumbo Android tablet to take to the couch or kitchen, Good performance in desktop mode, HDMI port lets you connect a second monitor when tablet is in use elsewhere

18.4-inch tablet weighs over 5 pounds, has lackluster battery life, Managing two operating systems on one device can be confusing, Screen is huge for a tablet, but small for a desktop for the price

You can think of the Transformer AIO as an innovative niche product, and maybe as a harbinger of the future. Switching between two operating systems isn't for everyone, but switching between desktop and tablet work is a trend that's here to stay.

Asus Transformer AIO P1801 Review and Ratings

 

This convertible PC is a peppy all-in-one desktop with a screen that detaches to become a huge tablet. It's a fascinating concept and a reasonably well-executed one, if not without a few software kinks.

Detachable screen gives you a jumbo Android tablet to take to the couch or kitchen ; Good performance in desktop mode ; HDMI port lets you connect a second monitor when tablet is in use elsewhere

18.4-inch tablet weighs over 5 pounds, has lackluster battery life ; Managing two operating systems on one device can be confusing ; Screen is huge for a tablet, but small for a desktop for the price

Most of the issues we had with the Transformer AIO centered around accessing the Windows 8 desktop with the tablet undocked, via Android and the Splashtop app. This may be fixed with further software updates, and some of our issues might be specific to...

Asus Transformer AiO P1801 Review - Tech2

 

Asus has come out with many offbeat and unthinkable designs in the past, especially for their Android tablets. Remember the Eee Pad Slider and Transformer

This particular variant of the Asus Transformer AiO powered by Intel Core i3 processor is priced at Rs 86,999. A Core i5 variant is also available, which is priced at Rs 92,999. The Transformer AiO is a great concept, but it’s a bit too large. It would...

Now, for the most interesting bit—switching of the operating system. With the tablet docked to the PC Station, you have a desktop PC running Windows 8. While docked, the blue button switches between Android and Windows 8. When undocked, the Android OS...

ASUS has created a desktop PC that incorporates an Android tablet

Good performance ; Desktop PC and Android tablet

Somewhat confusing product ; Tablet is huge

If you're after something different, though, and not just a typical desktop all-in-one, then it's worth considering. The PC itself is fast, it's packed with USB ports and ships with decent wireless peripherals, and the touchscreen works accurately.

Asus Transformer AiO P1801 review

 

A desktop/tablet hybrid; a tabtop?

Two processors run both Windows 8 and Jelly Bean ; Tablet has built-in handle and stand

Tablet is large and unwieldy on its own ; Somewhat impractical

The Transformer AiO is certainly an odd duck when it comes to hybrid computers, but with both Windows 8 and Jelly Bean running smoothly it could potentially replace a whole host of other devices in the home. Many people are likely satisfied with just...
