The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 happens from 8-11 Jan 2013. It is the event for brands to showcase new and upcoming products. I have been receiving press releases and glancing the product information as they arrived, and the ASUS announcement caught my attention with the Transformer AiO. Basically, it's an All-in-One desktop PC with a display that can be detached and works like a tablet.

A convertible Windows device is nothing new, but ASUS doesn't stop there. The tablet can run on either a Windows 8 powered by Intel core or an Android 4.1 powered by Tegra 3 processor!!! According to the press release, when the Tegra-powered tablet is undocked from the PC Station, you can continue to access Windows 8 via Wireless Remote Desktop.

They call it "the world’s first all-in-one PC with a detachable tablet". At 18.4 inch, I say it's also the world's largest Android tablet!
