Finally a proper joining of the two operating systems, Windows 8.1 and Android 4.2.2. The Transformer Book Duet will run the two operating systems on a fourth generation Intel processor, allowing you to seamlessly switch between Android and Windows with the push of a button. Don’t worry about security, the two will run separately. The only thing this machine cannot do is run iOS apps, and that my friends is why Apple will lose this battle. You can only horde your ecosystem so long until people leave it behind for greener grass. Note that AMD is also pursuing a duel ecosystem environment, but they are going about it in a different way, which honestly may be better…
In addition, Transformer Book Duet TD300 has a front-facing HD camera with a built-in digital mic for video chats. The tablet display has 128GB of SSD storage that can be supplemented by a 64GB Micro SD card, while the keyboard dock houses up to a 1TB hard disk drive. The dock is also home to USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, a LAN port, and HDMI 1.4 output with 1080p support. In terms of connectivity, ASUS Transformer Book T300 has 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 with EDR. source asus.com
