    It looks like Asus is truly trying to create a device that is nearly all things to all people. Frequently, that type of strategy fails, but it's possible Asus may have hit on that magical winning combination. They just announced the Transformer Book V, which is a tablet/phone/laptop hybrid device. Along with the all-in-one combination of these physical devices, it even includes the ability to dual-boot between Windows and Android on the tablet and laptop portions of the device.

    Here's what the Transformer Book V consists of:

    • It has a 12.5-inch tablet screen dock
    • Combining the phone with the tablet dock makes it a tablet
    • Combining the phone & tablet with the keyboard dock transforms it into a laptop
    • While in tablet or laptop mode it can switch between Windows and Android (although the phone is Android only)
    • The phone section contains an Intel Moorefield chip
    • The keyboard dock section contains an Intel Core CPU
    • It contains 2GB of RAM in the phone/tablet
    • While the laptop section has 4GB of RAM
    • The phone and tablet use 64GB of storage and the laptop has 128GB of storage
    The only other specs/hardware revealed was the following:

    • 1 x DisplayPort 1.2 (4K at 60Hz)
    • 1 x Mini DisplayPort 1.2 (4K at 60Hz)
    • 1 x HDMI 2.0 (4K at 60Hz) / MHL 3.0 (4K at 30Hz)
    • 1 x HDMI 1.4 (4K at 30Hz)
    • 4 x USB 3.0 ports
    Asus is really taking things to a whole new level with the "Transformer" series. The name is more fitting than ever!

    This is beautiful with the exception of the phone being Android, but window's OS hasn't gotten there yet.
