ASUS is no stranger to putting out interesting devices, and today at CES 2014 the unveiled the ASUS Transformer Book Duet. It’s a dual-booting hybrid that can run Android or Windows 8.1, and it’s a laptop you’ll definitely want to pay attention to.
The ASUS Transformer Book Duet takes its hybrid nature seriously as it can transform from a laptop to a tablet, and dual-boots Android and Windows 8.1. The 13.3-inch laptop has a multitouch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. Under the hood, you’ll find an Intel Core i7 processor to go along with 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD.
If the SSD drive doesn’t impress you, the 1TB of space that comes with the laptop dock should. The dock also has all the usual ports including LAN, HDMI, USB 2.0, and USB 3.0. Weight is an important factor for a lot of consumers, and while the Transformer Book Duet isn’t the slimmest hybrid on the market, it’s not too heavy coming in at a little over 4 lbs.
The Transformer Book Duet’s specs are nothing to scoff at, but the real draw of the laptop hybrid is the ability to switch between Android and Windows 8.1 by simply pushing a button. No firm release date has been set for the Transformer Book Duet, but you can expect the prices to “start” at $599 whenever it hits the streets.
