Many, if not all, Windows 8 tablets hedge into the laptop/desktop area with the inclusion of smart covers that come with keyboards. Asus is flipping that script with the Transformer P1801. The Taiwanese company’s latest all-in-one PC starts as a desktop computer but can removed from it’s dock to become a giant tablet. We’re not kidding about that. The average tablet ranges between 7 and 10-inches. Asus’ P1801 tablet is nearly 20-inches with a display size of 18.4-inches diagonally.
The size of this PC-tablet is more than likely due to the fact that there is basically a PC and a separate tablet built-in to the device. For example, when in PC-mode the P1801 runs on an Intel Core i7 processor but when undocked it runs off of a NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip. Also, as a tablet the P1801 runs on the Android 4.1 operating system. In the PC station it runs Microsoft Windows 8. There are numerous examples of this throughout the system. We recommend looking at our specifications sheet to see them.
It’s an experiment that allows users to use two disparate systems, nearly simultaneously.
