The Transformer P1801 18.4" Tablet & All-in-One Desktop Computer Hybrid from ASUS is a unique device that can be used as an all-in-one desktop computer as well as a tablet. The Transformer consists of a PC station and a tablet. When attached to the PC station, the Transformer performs as an all-in-one desktop computer powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and Windows 8. When you detach the Transformer from the PC station, it switches over to its own quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and tablet-friendly Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

The 18.4" LED-backlit capacitive touchscreen features 10-point touch support for multi-touch gestures supported in both Windows 8 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The screen features a 16:9 aspect ratio and has a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution; the display is powered by an nVIDIA GeForce GT 730M graphics card with 2GB of discrete memory while connected to the PC station or by its integrated nVIDIA ULP graphics when used as a tablet. The HDMI port in the PC station allows you to output video to an external display, such as an HDTV.

When connected to the PC station, the system is powered by a dual-core 3.1GHz Intel Core i5-3350P processor. It also has 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB hard drive, a SuperMulti DVD burner, a 3-in-1 media card reader, 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. A wireless keyboard and mouse is included.

Windows 8 (64-bit) is the operating system when using the Transformer as an all-in-one computer. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles, which provide notifications in real-time. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

When using the Transformer as a tablet, the system is powered by a quad-core 1.6GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. It has 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 32GB of eMMC flash storage, a microSD card slot, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0+EDR technology.

The Transformer utilizes the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. This clean, uncluttered mobile operating system brings smarter notifications, beautiful widgets and deep home screen customization made easier with drag-and-drop controls. You'll also have access to Google Play, which contains thousands of apps to choose from.

The Best of Both Worlds

A Real Transformer
The ASUS Transformer P1801 contains all the performance of a Windows 8 all-in-one desktop computer as well as the mobility of an Android tablet. The ASUS Transformer P1801 provides the performance you need to stay productive while connected to the PC station, but can be detached from it to instantly transform into a multi-touch Android tablet for more mobility
18.4" LED-Backlit IPS Capacitive Touchscreen
While the ASUS Transformer P1801 can be used as both an all-in-one desktop computer and a tablet, it uses the same display for both. The 18.4" LED-backlit display features In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology for wide viewing angles and uniform color. The display is also a capacitive touchscreen with 10-point touch support, which works in conjunction with multi-touch gestures found in both Windows 8 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The screen features a 16:9 aspect ratio and has a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution so you'll be able to play back 1080p HD video content natively

Windows 8 All-in-One PC

Dual-Core Intel Core i5 Performance
The ASUS Transformer P1801 houses an Intel Core i5-3350P processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 3.1GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.3GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 3MB L3 cache, 8GB of DDR3 RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to experience fast and efficient multitasking
Windows 8
Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles, which provide notifications in real-time. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows
nVIDIA GeForce GT 670M Graphics
The nVIDIA GeForce GT 670M graphics card with 2GB of discrete memory arms you with dynamic PhysX effects, high performance nVIDIA Verde drivers, and more. Based on DirectX 11 technology, tessellation can dynamically extend new triangles and textures for making images more detailed
ASUS SonicMaster Technology
ASUS SonicMaster audio technology means the ASUS Transformer delivers rich, immersive sound with music and movies
HDMI
With the HDMI port, you'll be able to output video from the ASUS Transformer P1801 to an external display, such as an HDTV. This allows you to share multimedia content with friends and family on any HDMI-enabled home entertainment device
USB 3.0
USB 3.0 can reach a data transfer rate of up to 5Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0 with compatible external storage devices, making it ideal for transferring large files, such as raw video and photo files

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Tablet

Quad-Core nVIDIA Tegra 3 Performance
The ASUS Transformer P1801 comes with a quad-core 1.6GHz nVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. It can also run at 1.7GHz when using only one core. Quad-core performance allows for pages to load quickly, gaming to be smooth and responsive, and multiple apps to run seamlessly. Integrated graphics deliver rich and immersive visuals while patented 4-PLUS-1 CPU design gives you processing power when you need it, and battery saving efficiency when you don't
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS
When in tablet mode, the ASUS Transformer P1801 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. This clean, uncluttered mobile operating system brings smarter notifications, beautiful widgets and deep home screen customization made easier with drag-and-drop controls. You can also tap the microphone on the keyboard and use your voice to type out your emails, SMS or anything else you want to text. You also have access to Google Play, which holds thousands of Android apps for you to use and experience
A Unique Design
When the ASUS Transformer P1801 is detached from its PC station base, it becomes an Android tablet that allows you to be more mobile. Sit with the tablet on your lap to browse the web, use apps and play games on the 18.4" capacitive touchscreen with responsive 10-point touch support. There is also a built-in stand that pops out so you can stand the ASUS Transformer P1801 up to view photos and videos with friends and family. Since the screen uses IPS technology, the 178° viewing angle prevents colors from being washed out so everyone looking at the screen can have the same viewing experience

      Out of the box I ran into a couple of glitches. The main problem I have is with the wireless mouse & keyboard the cpu comes with. The USB transmitter does not work well at all and I believe it was also the cause the USB 2.0 PORT has completely malfunctioned. I have gone back to using my old wireless mouse & keyboard and I haven't had any problems with it since.

        I have been looking at this AIO for awhile now and am glad I finally decided to order it. It provides me with the power of a fully functional desktop that I can use at home to remote into work, while giving me the android experience I have come to love casually for social interaction and gaming all in one unit. Worth every penny.

          Great use as a home laptop and tablet. Also fun to play board games with the family. Works as a regular desktop in the office when docked. Its a great combination. I wonder why other brands do not have this kind of a product.

            If you need versatility with your computer this is a great computer. It is quick and easy to switch from desktop to tablet and you can also use them separately. My only complaint is that it has been difficult to get used to Windows 8.

              It's a great AiO, with the productivity of Windows 8 and the functionality of Android and it's great Play Store. It's fast and powerful for everyday chores, and occasionally gaming.

              The only flaw in my point of view it's that the USB ports are in it's side and not behind, so if you connect something the cable sticks out of the side, ruining the cordless and clutterless visual.

                I use the screen off the machine most of the time.

                In Windows 8/8.1 mode, with the screen separated:
                1.There is a slight of a delay of the mouse movement which takes getting use to.
                2.The touch controls are very responsive but Windows (In my opionion) messed up when they made a Touch Windows OS (Windows 8) and didn't make a bunch of touch controls to go with it.
                3.The keyboard and mouse are connected to the PC base wirelessly and have a limited range. The screen using the touch controls works until you are out of your wireless network's range.

                In Windows 8/8.1 mode with the screen connected, it's an I5 Windows PC. Runs just like any other I5 desktop pc.

                In android mode. It's the largest gaming 'cell phone' a kid could play on. The grand kids love it and I use it in android mode probably half the time also.

                I have the "base" connected to my TV via HDMI. I Put the screen, keyboard and mouse on my coffee table and use it as a dual screen PC. Playing movies. Editing photos...

                I could not ask for more!

                        Definitely impressed by it's speed and display. Although you HAVE to use a calibration tool, the colors out of the box seem a little off. I was worried about going with a self contained unit vs a bigger tower, but so far I'm very happy
