ASUS Transformer AiO P1801 review
23 July 2013
Excerpt: You couldn’t accuse Taiwanese component maker ASUS of being unambitious. Over the last half a decade or so the company’s managed to carve itself a prominent role in the laptop market and it’s now aiming to do the same for tablets all-in-one PCs and perhaps even smartphones.
Pros: Unique yet well-implemented idea.
Cons: Hardware will soon be superseded particularly in tablet.
Conclusion: The Transformer AiO is one answer to a question that not enough manufacturer's are tackling; how do you bridge the gap between desktop and tablet? Asus's hybrid all-in-one is an innovative solution that offers plenty to admire, and having spent some quality time with the system we've come to...
Conclusion: You can think of the Transformer AIO as an innovative niche product, and maybe as a harbinger of the future. Switching between two operating systems isn't for everyone, but switching between desktop and tablet work is a trend that's here to stay.
Pros: Detachable screen gives you a jumbo Android tablet to take to the couch or kitchen, Good performance in desktop mode, HDMI port lets you connect a second monitor when tablet is in use elsewhere
Cons: 18.4-inch tablet weighs over 5 pounds, has lackluster battery life, Managing two operating systems on one device can be confusing, Screen is huge for a tablet, but small for a desktop for the price
Excerpt: We have seen quite a few gadgets that transform between tablet and laptop form factors. However, have you seen a desktop PC that is also a tablet? Well, the ASUS Transformer AiO P1801 is one of such new breed of devices with a detachable screen that is also a tablet.
Pros: Excellent performance in Windows and Android; Stunning looks and versatility; Detachable Android tablet that can receive streaming Windows 8; Great screen.
Cons: Large and heavy tablet is not very portable; Sometimes sluggish remote Windows 8 performance; No Blu-ray drive.
Summary: This particular variant of the Asus Transformer AiO powered by Intel Core i3 processor is priced at Rs 86,999. A Core i5 variant is also available, which is priced at Rs 92,999. The Transformer AiO is a great concept, but it’s a bit too large.
Test: Asus Transformer P1801-B073K (All-in-One-PC)
19 January 2014
Excerpt: Fazit: Der Asus Transformer P1801-B073K ist ein Windows-PC, der mit einem Handgriff zum Android-Tablet mutiert. Die Idee klingt innovativ, aber im Test verhageln das schwache Display, die mittelmäßige Performance und der unhandliche Tablet-Modus eine bessere Bewertung.
Pros: Tablet und Desktop-PC zugleich, Flotter Wechsel zwischen Android und Windows, Angenehm leise
Cons: Mieses 18"-Display, Schlechter Schachbrett-Kontrast, Tab zu schwer und klobig, Kurze Akku-Laufzeit
