While we've seen detachable tablets before, such as the HP Spectre 13t-h x2the Transformer Book Trio doesn't simply offer tablet hardware, it does so with a separate operating system, a skinned version of Android 4.

The keyboard half of the Transformer Book Trio is equipped with its own processor and memory, as well as another battery. Connect the tablet to the docking keyboard, and the tablet becomes a touch-screen display for a small clamshell laptop.

In laptop mode, you have the option of running either Windows 8 or ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Smart Gesture, switching from one to the other with the press of a button. We've seen a couple other dual-OS devices in the past—like the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 —but navigating two operating systems is clunky at best. And then there's the desktop mode. Because it has its own battery, processor, and hard drive, the docking keyboard isn't a useless accessory when the tablet is disconnected. Instead, it's capable of running entirely on its own, provided you connect it to an external monitor via mini DisplayPort or micro HDMI.

Rooting ASUS Transformer Trio TXLA-CQH Android Development and Hacking

Hook up a monitor, and you've got a functioning Windows PC, with an Intel Core i7 notebook processor, a smattering of ports, and a built-in keyboard and touchpad. The Transformer Book Trio is a little bulkier than most detachable hybrid systems, thanks to the fact that it houses two separate devices. While plenty of detachable hybrid designs place PC components into the tablet half of a system, they make up ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Smart Gesture some of this thickness with slimmer keyboards, usually housing nothing more than a keyboard, touchpad, and sometimes a secondary battery.

The two halves of the system together measure 0. The Trio has a luxurious brushed metal design over most of the chassis that feels extremely well-made. The docking hinge initially seems to connect solidly, but there's no alignment guide or other help for properly lining up the tablet with the docking connector. Once docked, the hinge is fairly wobbly, and doesn't hold up well against the taps and bumps that are common when using a touch screen. The final, and most irritating, problem we ran into during testing was the tablet's propensity to turn off and then refuse to turn back on.

Fearing it was a defect in our review unit, we returned it to Asus for a replacement, but the problem cropped up again when retesting the new system. We did eventually get the tablet working again, but the intermittent issue is impossible to ignore.

The keyboard feels a little cheap, with non-backlit keys and a deck made of plastic instead ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Smart Gesture the brushed aluminum found on the rest of the chassis. Nevertheless, it feels pretty good, albeit a bit small, and offers a decent typing experience. The arrow keys are half-sized, as are the function keys along the top, which only exacerbates the cramped feeling of the smaller keyboard. Furthermore, we could not stream that content through the Web because it relies on Flash, which is unsupported by this tablet.

Technical Details

Otherwise, you might end up being disappointed. Other things to note about this tablet are that it has a microSD card slot on the bottom, which can be used to shore up its storage capacity, and ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Smart Gesture is a micro USB port that can be used to transfer data off the tablet onto a PC, or to charge it via a PC or wall outlet.

The tablet lacks a video output port. In the browser-based benchmarks Sunspider and Peacekeeper, the tablet recorded ms lower is better and marks higher is betterrespectively, using the Chrome browser. Because our adapter requires the HDMI cable to be plugged in at a right angle, we were unable to connect the base to its power adapter while it was connected ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Smart Gesture our TV. We recommend getting a cable or adapter that juts straight out, rather than at an angle. If you have to buy an HDMI adapter for this unit, don't get a right-angled one like we did, otherwise you won't be able to plug in the power supply.

At the same time, we used the tablet to browse the Web and bring up stats for the games that we were watching through LeaguePass. It's not strictly a one-person device, and for this reason it might suit families who have been keen to get a device that's sharable. That said, you do need to have some infrastructure in place to use the Trio's PC Station ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Smart Gesture when the tablet screen is detached. There is a dedicated keyboard key that you can press, which activates the built-in software switcher and allows you to navigate Android using the keyboard and touchpad.

The software always runs in the background on the Windows 8 PC, and on the Android tablet, so you can make the change between devices and operating systems with minimal fuss. This aspect of the Trio works very well. You can also use the pre-installed software to set up file sharing between the Android tablet and the Windows 8 system. Both devices need to be on the same wireless network for this to happen you'll essentially be moving files over the wireless networkand it takes a little legwork to set it up. Once this is done, you should be able to see the Android folders through Windows 8, and shared Windows 8 folders through Android. ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Smart Gesture


The tablet's folders are mapped as network locations, which can slow down simple tasks on such as opening File Explorer in Windows 8. In any case, we think it's a very fiddly process just to share data. It was faster for us to just use Dropbox or plug the tablet in via a USB cable without going through any of the pre-installed software. Battery life Each device has its own battery and both batteries work independently. The battery in the tablet device can't be used to supplement the battery in the base, and vice versa. We ran our regular battery life test on the Trio, which is ASUS Transformer Book Trio TX201LA Smart Gesture laptop rundown test in which we disable power management that is, change to high performancemaximise screen brightness, enable Wi-Fi, and stream an Xvid-encoded video. In this test, the Trio lasted 3hr 42min.
