New Asus Transformer Book Trio ad Shows Android is for Fun & Windows is for Work

We aren't sure if we can fully agree with the point made in Asus' new Transformer Book Trio ad, but it is entertaining. The video above is for Asus' new hybrid product, which combines a removable Android based touch-screen tablet, with a Windows-endowed base unit. It can even be attached to a full sized monitor through HDMI converting it into a desktop PC. It is designed as the ultimate hybrid device for people on the go. The commercial implies that the Android side of things is for fun, but the Windows side of things is all business. Here's a rundown of some of its specs/features:
  • Combines Windows 8 with Android.
  • The Android tablet docks with the “keyboard”. In this mode, Windows is in control and uses an Intel Core processor and 4GB of RAM.
  • When detached, Android controls the tablet using a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor with 2GB of RAM.
It looks like Asus is really having fun and getting creative with the "Transformer" concept. Pretty soon we might see cars changing into giant robots and befriending teenagers! Gasp!
