Asus Transformer Book Trio

 

The Asus Transformer Book Trio is an intriguing concept that weds an Android tablet and a Windows PC, but the ambitious 3-in-1 design falls short.

Combines tablet convenience and laptop productivity. Has both Windows and Android capability. Decent performance in both operating systems

Expensive. Awkward union of tablet and laptop with hardware switching. Kludgy file sharing between laptop and tablet. Tablet portion occasionally failed to turn on during testing

First announced the Computex trade show last June, the Asus Transformer Book Trio ($1,499, as tested) is three devices in one. It's a laptop, it's a tablet, and it's even a desktop PC (sort of). The Transformer Book Trio is the next step in the move...

In general, whether you're talking about PCs, peripherals, TVs or audio, tech usually matures over time. They start out as innovative ideas, often hatched by a bright-eyed, young enthusiast in a garage or dorm room, grow into a business within a cocoon...

Solid build quality ; Switching between Android and Windows is painless ; Tablet is easy to dock and remove ; Strong CPU performance

Heavy and bulky for its size ; Battery life is average at best ; Slow storage performance ; Fidgety touchpad ; Not a good value

Though it flawlessly manages to pair Android with Windows, the Asus Transformer Book Trio stumbles in other areas.

ASUS Transformer Book Trio hybrid laptop

 

An Android tablet, Windows 8 laptop, and Windows 8 PC, all in one mixed up product

Separate Android tablet and Windows 8 PC units ; Full HD screen

Felt sluggish during general use ; Base has a hard drive rather than SSD

With the Transformer Book Trio, ASUS gives you a device that can be used as an Android tablet, a Windows laptop or desktop PC. It's a product that continues the company's fine traditional of innovation, but we don't think it's ready for the mainstream...

Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA review

 

Great value hybrid with powerful hardware, excellent screen, but average battery life

At £900, the Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA might seem overpriced, but you’re getting two products in one device for the price of one laptop. Neither device is particularly exceptional on its own, but the combination of the two makes this one of...

Review: Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA

 

Fusing an Android tablet with a Windows 8 Ultrabook is an impressive feat of engineering, but it's far from an ideal partnership.

Accessing data on the Windows disk from the Android OS is less speedy, however, since it’s necessary to use Asus’ PC Tool software, which transfers files over any existing Wi-Fi network. This means that both devices need to be on the same network, and...

While Asus has created countless Windows and Android devices, the Transformer Book Trio TX201LA is the first to unite the two platforms.

Fusing an Android tablet with a Windows 8 Ultrabook is an impressive feat of engineering, but it's far from an ideal partnership
