In pictures: Asus' Computex showcase
First look at the highlights including exotic Windows 8 devices.
Jun 6, 2012
Asus announced an assortment of intriguing hardware at Computex 2012, including the Asus AiO Pad. This monster 18.4in tablet transforms into an all-in-one iMac-style desktop.
As if the curious form factor wasn't enough, the Asus AiO Pad distinguishes itself further with dual operating systems - namely, Android and Windows 8.
The unusually named Asus Taichi is an ultraportable laptop that boasts a touchscreen lid. When the laptop is opened, both screens can be switched on, allowing two people to use the device simultaneously. The Taichi runs on Windows 8 and will come in 11.6 and 13.3-inch varieties.

The Asus Tablet 810 is an 11.6in slate with Windows 8 on board and a new 'Clover Trail' Intel Atom processor. It’ll be compatible with a special dock that adds a QWERTY keyboard and extends battery life. It comes with 2GB of RAM and a Super IPS+ display with a native resolution of 1366x768 pixels. Both finger and pen/stylus input is supported.
The Asus Transformer Book is the latest entry in the company's seemingly endless array of hybrid computers. Like the rest of the Transformer range, this Windows 8, Ivy Bridge-based notebook has a removeable touchscreen that doubles as a tablet. It will come in 11.6in, 13in and 14in sizes, all of which have full 1920 x 1080 HD resolutions.

In addition to tablets, laptops and curious mixtures of the two, Asus also showed off its latest Designo monitors, led by the flagship MX279H. The Asus MX279H measures 27-inches and sports a clean bezel-free design. Product highlights include LED backlighting, 178-degree viewing angles, dual HDMI inputs and SonicMaster audio co-developed with Bang & Olufsen.
