ASUS Transformer Book Trio goes further still, with a keyboard dock that packs its own processor and can also be used as a self-contained desktop PC, allowing its display to be detached for use as an Android tablet when connected to an external monitor.

 

“In Search of Incredible” Campaign History

Since 2011, ASUS and Intel have partnered on a global campaign to promote ASUS product lines through its brand spirit of “In Search of Incredible”.  The first wave of the campaign promoted the ASUS Zenbook and N Series and invited singers Jay Chou and Jason Mraz as brand ambassadors.  The second installment promoted the ASUS TAICHI and saw the creation of an incredible documentary that filmed world-class tight-rope performers.  This year, ASUS and Intel celebrate the third wave of the ‘In Search of Incredible’ campaign with the ‘Transformation Day’ global television commercial and online video, showcasing an engaging and incredible mobile lifestyle.

ASUS Transformer Book Trio — laptop, tablet and desktop PC in one sleek design

ASUS Transformer Book Trio is a new breed of ultraportable that can be used by one person as a laptop, or by two people at once as a separate tablet and desktop PC when connected to an external monitor. ASUS Transformer Book Trio is powered by a 4th-generation Intel Core™ processor in Windows 8 laptop mode, but the 11.6-inch display detaches from the ‘PC Station’ keyboard dock for use as an Android tablet with its own Intel AtomTM processor. The dock can then also be used as an independent Windows 8 desktop PC.
