Android and Windows convertible Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300

Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300
The Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300 is with a new concept. That is with only one processor Android and Windows 8.1 are performed and it can be interchanged just by pressing a button. A data exchange between the operating systems is provided. As the first “quad- mode device “means the Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300.

It comes with a 13.3- inch display with full HD resolution works on both Windows 8.1 and Android 4.4 Tablet in each case as well as a notebook. Not two separate computer solutions for use, but both operating systems are running on an Intel CPU with Haswell - engineering - but come unlike past - offered by Asus. Unlike the media suspects in advance, Windows, and run Android not parallel through virtualization.

Rather, the state of the operating system freezes when switching and stored on the SSD, then just run the other OS. For a change there is a function key, it takes just four seconds, according to Asus. Both operating systems can access a shared folder so that data between Windows and Android can be exchanged. The entire procedures have Asus and Intel jointly developed and according to Asus patented.

In principle, the solution is hardly surprising, since Android for years been running on x86 CPUs, Intel had first adapted it for Atom Smartphones. The fact that the Google OS will run on the large core processors, is technically possible for some time. Whether, as suggested in unconfirmed reports, dispute with Microsoft that has so far prevented, is an outstanding issue.

Anyway, Intel kept its Android version only very slow in comparison Atom SoCs ago. As with the Atom Convertible Tablet T100 is in the part of the TD300 only a very meager when compared to notebooks equipped with a 128 GB SSD and a Micro SD slot. The keyboard dock has an additional 1 TB hard drive, ports for USB 2.0, 3.0 and HDMI as well as a jack for Gigabit Ethernet.

The graphic is provided by the HD Graphics core in the processor, main memory consists of 4 GB DDR3L. It can spark the device after 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 EDR and LTE - but probably not in all trim levels. As with the new Asus Zenfones are so far only to the minimum price of $ 599 plus tax, which likewise possible Core i7 processor along with LTE module is unlikely to be installed.
