FoxNews.com: The ASUS TAICHI ™ is the best of this new generation of convergence computers, offering not only a compelling way to switch between tablet and notebook modes, but a revolutionary technical solution to a common business problem. The Verge: The internal and external screens can be set to mirror one another or work independently, allowing two users to run separate applications at the same time.

> confidential Washington Post: Each offers some new unique twists and turns – including one laptop with two screens — but perhaps the smartest move by ASUS is to re-use the popular design from its Android tablet and dock, the Transformer Prime. Time: “I’m most interested to hear about ASUS’ tablets, which according to Bloomberg will have detachable keyboard docks similar to the company’s Android-based Transformer series (pictured above). A Windows version would be useful for running legacy software in laptop mode and new “Metro-style” apps in tablet mode, so I’m hoping ASUS announces at least one tablet based on x86 architecture.”- Time Techland ANANDTech: ASUS have shown us their latest innovations, including the new ASUS Transformer Book.

The Transformer AiO initially runs Windows 8, but a button push will cause the behemoth to boot into Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and become a tablet. ComputerWorld: Also unusual was ASUS’ Transformer AiO, which looks like a normal, all-in-one PC but has detachable, 18.4-inch touch-screen that can be used as a wireless display. More unusual, at the push of a button the display can switch from Windows 8 to Android, becoming "the world's biggest tablet." Headline News: Transformer AiO
