ASUS today announced ASUS Transformer AiO, billed as the world's first All-in-One PC with a detachable display that can also be used as a standalone tablet.

Check out our gallery of the ASUS AiO Transformer P1801.

The Transformer AiO packages a desktop PC station with a third-generation Intel Core desktop processor that runs Windows 8, and a detachable 18.4-inch display with its own NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor for use as a self-contained tablet powered by Android 4.1.

The PC station comes with NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M graphics and features an array of ports, including USB 3.0. Its 18.4-inch LED-backlit display has a 1080p Full HD resolution with 10-point multi-touch and features IPS technology, designed for bright, vibrant images, with 178-degree wide viewing angles.

ASUS Transformer AiO also features dual-band Wi-Fi and ASUS SonicMaster audio technology.

When detached from the PC station, ASUS Transformer AiO's display can be used as two different types of tablet. First, wireless remote desktop technology with dual-band Wi-Fi provides complete multi-touch control over the Windows 8 system on the PC Station.

Alternatively, the 18.4-inch display can also be used as a standalone tablet with Android 4.1, thanks to its built-in NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. ASUS Transformer AiO switches seamlessly between operating systems at the press of a button and has up to five hours' battery life. The display also features a carrying handle and a folding stand for tabletop use away from the PC station.

While ASUS has announced general availability of the Transformer AiO and a US price tag of $1,299, a price for the UAE market has yet to be confirmed.
