Our first day at Computex 2013 was all about the Big A’s: Acer and ASUS. Acer kicked things off with a presentation that detailed new Ultrabooks powered by the latest Intel Haswell processors as well as a peek at the world’s first 8-inch Windows 8 tablet. Later, ASUS followed up with buzz-worthy products of its own, including a laptop-tablet hybrid with two CPUs and two operating systems (Android and Windows 8) that can work as three devices in one. Here’s all the Computex excitement you missed.
If there's a Most Innovative Gadget at Computex 2013, ASUS has won it. The Transformer Book Trio is an 11.6-inch tablet-laptop hybrid with a detachable screen and two--yes, two--built-in operating systems: Android and Windows 8. The tablet portion houses a low-power Intel Atom processor while the base of the system is powered by an Intel fourth-generation Core i7 CPU for running desktop apps.
