ASUS’ Transformer tablet docking concept should most certainly be patented as it's clearly a genius idea and, when it is well implemented, it makes very productive and impressive devices. Such a device is ASUS’ new Windows 8 tablet based on the x86 vanilla version of the anticipated operating system.
To use x86 Windows 8, ASUS needs an x86 processor inside and, as much as we would have liked that to be AMD’s Hondo
or even a fully-fledged Brazos 2.0, ASUS went for Intel’s new Clover Trail Atom low-power processor.
The tablet looks very good and we welcome the big 11.6” screen.
Perfect compatibility with any existing Windows XP, VISTA and Windows 7 x86 application on the market is something truly useful and productive.
The new tablet
is a bit heavier than its ARM-based counterpart, but it also has a slightly bigger 11.6” screen featuring the standard 1366 by 768 pixel resolution.
