The Transformer AiO PC runs on Windows 8 and has an integral Android tablet that can be detached, while the Qube Google TV media streamer is an entertainment device with voice search and motion control.

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.

In fact, the pocket router would have been exactly what I needed during my recent trip to Japan because the super-thin Ultrabook that I’d brought along didn’t have an Ethernet port and some hotel rooms had wired Internet access but no Wi-Fi.

Below are more details of the new gizmos.

Among the major computer manufacturers, I consider Asus as one of the most innovative.

Innovative pioneers

The Taiwanese company created the Netbook genre with its Eee PCs back in 2007.

The Transformer Book continues the line of transformer notebook/tablet hybrids popularised by ASUS.

Asus also the pioneered the tablet/notebook hybrid with the Asus Transformer TF101 – offering a hardware keyboard that the Android tablet could be docked into for serious work that involves typing – plus added battery life and connectors.

Now every other major computer maker offers notebook/tablet hybrids in their lineup.

Either as a “Transformer” hybrid where the keyboard can be totally detached.

Or in a “Convertible” format where the keyboard cannot be detached but can be manipulated such that the machine can be held as a tablet or used like a traditional laptop.

Asus has continued its innovation with products such as the Transformer Padfone and now the Taichi – a convertible with dual screens.

Below is a summary of the new Windows 8 lineup unveiled by ASUS.
