The Transformer AiO has an 18.4-inch display that doubles as a standalone tablet.

The two monitors are the PA249Q ProArt and VG248QE Fast Gaming monitors, while the WL-330NUL Pocket Router is the world’s smallest router that gives easy wireless connectivity to travelers.

Below are more details of the new gizmos.
