Computex 2013 has already seen some great products announced, but today Asus took centre stage to tantalise us with some serious gadge!

Today we see the birth of the Transformer Book Trio, which is based on the old Transformer but with some serious upgrades. Firstly, this is a laptop with a removable screen which becomes a tablet. You can now dock the screen  into a desktop station to turn it into a full-blown desktop machine.

One of the coolest things about this laptop is it can run Windows 8 or Android Jelly Bean with the touch of a button. It has an 11.6″ screen capable of 1080p and has 2 processors to help power the dual operating systems. Firstly, Windows 8 has a dedicated Core i7-4500U processor and then Android Jelly Bean is more than handled with a 2GHz Intel Atom Z2580 chip.

This is a complex machine, so in terms of storage, you get a 1TB HDD inside the keyboard station dock, and 64GB of flash storage inside the tablet itself. Asus have really tried to cover all bases with one device, so we can really see this taking off. Microsoft are also rumoured to be talking about subsidising licensing costs to help boost the sales of Windows 8 tablets so you may even see this being cheaper than it normally would have been.

We have no confirmation on pricing but it is expected to be released sometime in Q3.
