I was very much looking forward to receiving the Asus Transformer Book Trio and it is definitely an interesting device. I understand where Asus were trying to go with the Trio, but unfortunately I don't think they quite got there.I think the tablet is...

While an intriguing concept, the Trio feels like a computer suffering an identity crisis, and it's just a little confusing why you'd want both Android and Windows in a laptop together, because you don't really need both in the same body.If you use...

We've seen hybrid laptop-tablets hybrids before, but the Asus Transformer Book Trio has a third skill – it also works as a desktop PC. Plug a monitor into the keyboard base, and hey presto, you've got a workstation. Most hybrid devices – like the...

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 TrioC$1,049.99 at Amazon is the next step in the move toward convertible and detachable hybrid...

Asus pulled it off and fused three products into one unique device that costs the price of an entry-level ultrabook. However, just because we gave it five stars doesn't mean it's absolutely perfect: it could use an SSD and better intercommunication...

The Asus Transformer Book Trio includes Android as more than an afterthought, but it is certainly not the main attraction here. Rather, it's a value-add in a market where Android is increasingly commoditized, and...

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

The PC market has been on the wane for quite some time despite the industry's efforts to tempt consumers with convertible notebooks and Windows 8 tablets.The popularity of Android tablets and iPads in additon to longer upgrade cycles has played a part in...

Asus gets a lot right with the design of this Windows and Android convertible laptop/tablet. But it's definitely not cheap at $1,499; the battery life is short; and a few features are underwhelming....

Aside from some performance hiccups caused by a slow hard drive, the Asus Transformer Book Trio is a fairly solid device. You won't get the most comfortable keyboard, but you do get a decent amount of power in an 11.6-inch laptop. And did I mention you...

Does Asus have the all-rounder in its product line with the Transformer Book Trio TX210LA ? It is in fact a very appealing idea: Users do not need an extra Android device because their portable Internet tablet is part of the PC. Simply detach it and go...

Before you go out thinking that this is the dream setup, you’ll want to know its pricing first. Considering that this is stuffed with hardware that’s akin to some high-end laptops, its price reflects that to the teeth, as the Asus Transformer Book...

So, does three into one go? Pretty much, yes. Having a fully functional Android tablet and a Windows 8.1 PC in one package and both with a fine 1080p display certainly has its attractions. Cough up a few hundred quid for a monitor and it becomes an even...

The Trio is the result of three years of creative thinking and innovation from Asus, and in some ways it's an excellent device. Transitioning from Android to Windows is easy, and the hardware paired with each OS is quick enough to provide an enjoyable...

Apple CEO Tim Cook aimed a swipe at convertibles during the company's recent iPad Air and OS X 10.9 Mavericks launch. "Our competition is different," he said. "They're confused. They chased after netbooks. Now they're trying to make PCs into...

If the idea of a device that can be used as a Windows laptop, an Android tablet, and a Windows desktop PC sounds good to you, the ASUS Transformer Book Trio is a device you should check out. It will be available in November. Note: this product does not...

Au final, l'idée de base est plutôt intéressante, l'appareil pouvant totalement remplacer un PC Portable, un ordinateur fixe et une tablette… mais seulement pour des usages basiques. Il ne faudra en effet pas compter sur un Core i5 4200U pour faire...

Последнее время постоянно идут споры, что же лучше планшет или ноутбук, и какую операционную систему лучше использовать Android или Windows. Гибридное устройство Asus Transformer Book Trio дает ответ на все эти вопросы. Тайваньские разработчики подошли к...

No soy muy amigo de medias tintas, y me va más el cada oveja con su pareja. Algo puede ser un tablet o puede ser un portátil. Ser las dos cosas -de momento, cuidado, porque el Surface Pro 3 desequilibra mis convicciones - no es algo que parezca tener...
