Reviews Word on the street for the Asus Transformer Book Trio

For a tablet, its 11.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD display is highly regarded as above average in size.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Operating System

Embracing the two-halves approach of Windows 8 - one hald just like Windows 7, the other more like Windows Phone 7 - the Asus Transformer Book will function perfectly well as both a laptop and a tablet, partly thanks to its neat detachable keyboard.
by TrustedReviews (Aug, 2012)
Windows 8 allows you to install almost any software you can think of when you have something intensive to do, while Android offers a simplified touch-screen experience that's easier on the battery, with apps designed to be simple to use when you're out and about.

Introduction Having an established presence in Android and Windows, Taiwan based Asus has been relentless when it comes to developing a wide array of products for its portfolio.

Operating system

The Trio offers the choice of Windows 8 or Android 4.2 Jelly Bean when docked.

Performance wise, the Transformer Book Trio was fast as an Android tablet, Android laptop, Windows 8 laptop, and Windows 8 desktop (as an extended monitor).
by c|net (Sep, 2013)
That’s one steep cost, even though it’s a hybrid device running both Android and Windows.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2014)


The Trio consists of a laptop that comes in half, the 11.6-inch screen detaching to become a tablet.
by c|net (Sep, 2013)
Such a high-spec device makes more sense when thought about in the context of the Transformer Book's largest-screen model.

We'll be back with availability and pricing details on the Transformer Book as they become available.

Audio recording is mostly clear, exposure adjustment is tight, and it records smoothly at 29 FPS.

You can connect the keyboard dock to a monitor using Micro-HDMI or Mini DisplayPort.
by c|net (Sep, 2013)
Along the left and right sides, it’s blessed with all the usual ports that any laptop is given – like the audio jack combo, 2 USB 3.0, proprietary charging, microHDMI port, and Mini Display ports.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2014)


Although the keyboard dock is rated to offer an additional 8 hours of juice, but nonetheless, the result from the tablet is by itself disappointing.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2014)
Battery life is a strong asset of the Transformer Book Trio.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2014)
There's a separate battery in each half of the Trio, so not only can each part work on its own - for up to 13 hours as Android and 5 hours as Windows 8 - but when you bring them together one can provide a life-giving transfusion of power to the other.
